Thanks for the responses, I found it very odd the way the service manager spoke to me about oil changes, its probably the most important maintenance you can do on your vehicle and he seemed to sort of shrug it off with a do what you please type of deal but at the same rate said dont use synthetic even after the break in (which is probably to sell more frequent oil changes) you guys doing them at the service light or at 7500 miles, is that with conventional oil?? I have let me 04 hemi go to 8000 ish kms (5000 miles) many times but usually tried not too venture too far, oil was pretty fugly at that point. 1-2 mpg after the break in would be just fine by me, I was expecting this truck to be a fair bit better than my 04, I wasnt expecting huge numbers but I did think it would be a bit better, in town with mixed short distance highway driving every day it is far better than my 04 but on open hey for long distances it is pretty close to the same, the 04 had bigger heavier tires, same rear end gearing, same size cab etc. but did have a cold air, no resonator and a smaller muffler that may have helped a bit.
