I just recently bared my teeth and took my truck to 7000 and I'm running synthetic. There's no way I'm going to 12500...... that's just against my upbringing.
tell me about it , I still want to change the oil in my vehicles at 3k miles . I go 5k using synthetic , Just can not fathom 10k
I run to 10k between changes. 11 quarts of Rotella and 1 quart of Lucas. I change at or just before 10k intervals regardless of what the oil life sensor says but the oil life monitor usually says between 10% and 30% oil life left. Change fuel filters and air filters at every oil change. Got 180k on it and all is well so far. Guess time will tell.

I’ve read that some hot shot drivers are changing filters every 10k and oil every 30k. I ain’t gonna go that far.

In the old days I rarely ever changed the oil in my boats. Changed the filter every couple of hundred hours, and the old GM Detroit's changed the oil about every 100 hours.

Both of my Kubota's you only lose what in the filter when you change them.

Needed to change the hydraulic filters without changing the fluid, or losing too much. Removing them, you lose all your fluid.
If you stick a shop vac Into the fill port, you only lose whats in your filters. Worked great! Just make sure you're on the right port of the vacuum
Hmm...thinking what happens if the power goes out...I can see that happening to me...guess you work fast and cross your fingers. :lol:

Can you imagine if the hose was on the pressure side instead of the suction side of the vac? :lol2:
