2012 RAM 2500 First oil change
So @ 3059 miles & 2 months of age i decided to do first oil change.
Can not believe how dirty the oil was in such short period of time .
Most of my driving is 30 mile commute back & forth to work on pavement 75 hwy/25 city .
Going to run dino until my next oil change & then the RP goes in .
I can only imagine how dirty the oil would have been if i would have followed the manuel & waited 6 months or 7500 miles .
Hemi sure likes that new 5w20 pennzoil & purolator filter

I just changed mine as well for the first time and I only had 1700 miles on the truck. That oil was nasty.

in my 11 first oil change at 3000 or so miles, the oil was nasty also. been using penzoil ultra since the first change and at 6500 mile oci, it comes out looking pretty much the way it went in.

On my new truck I changed it at 500 miles with Mobil 5000 (dino) then again at 1000 miles (Amsoil OEM) for that reason. I suspect I will be good till about 5-7K.
