Thought that this might be a thread of interest and maybe a way for some to keep track of their oil changes. Basically post the vehicle you changed the oil on, at what mileage and how long you go on the oil change. If you follow the oil life monitor (OLM) then post at what percent it was reading at the time of the change. Also what brand oil/weight and oil filter you use.

Here is an example;

7/21/18
2002 Silverado
182,157 total miles on truck
5,147 miles on oil OLM at 0%
Oil AMSOIL Signature Series 10w-30 out SS 0w-20 in
Ea064 filter out and Ea030 filter on
Sent sample off to Dysonanalysis to see how this sample did. Reason for so short is I changed out the oil pan, intake gaskets and rear main seal so there will be some sealant in there somewhere. My oil consumption went to 0 after the intake gasket change. So it must have had a small leak. I use to go through a qt in 5k miles. No more smoke on start up after pulling the trailer either so I'm happy.

Also I have been running E85 for most of this oil change and I want to see what effect it has had on the oil.
