Changed my oil & filter for the second time in a month on my new truck. Sounds excessive and maybe I am a type A compulsive and an old dog, living in the past, but it makes me feel warm and fuzzy. I always believed the oil during break in gets pretty cruddy and my truck was a new 2012 purchased mid January, so not sure how long the oil had been in it. I first changed it a couple weeks ago at 526 miles using Mobil 5000 5W-20 (on sale at half price) and a Wix filter. Then today at 1000 miles with Amsoil OE 5W-20 and a Wix filter. It has been good to get up close and personal with my new truck, especially since changing fluids is probably the only thing I will be able to do.
