Excellent article! The most shocking part for me is that more wear actually occurs during the first 3000 miles after an oil change! Can't wait to show this to all the extended drain naysayers.

Thank you, this just made my day! The kid I live with is very opinionated and won't listen to what anyone says because he knows all. Anyway he insists on changing every 2500! Well he also has a 02 WS6 that he takes better care of then himself.

I have seen a similar article for Amsoil, but I doubt it was the same group. They didn't mention a Mobil 1 test for comparison. The age and recommendations were similar though.

I,ve changed my oil at 3000 mile intvs.Does anyone know how many miles pass before oil is 100% used up on the ctsv.My car says around 56% left when I change oil.
