I was just reading the manuals for the new truck....it said in there that the truck has 'break in' oil in it when delivered new...and to expect some oil loss during the break in period. FYI

They are correct in assuming that and good on them for letting us know.

I have been checking mine at least weekly, but with only 1300 km's on it, I haven't used a drop yet.

Also, JFYI, I just picked up some Pennzoil Platinum on sale at CDN Tire this week for $26.99 for a 5L jug. (That is a good price here in Canada)
