I do every 2500-3k. Only because I'm running ethanol. When I go back to pump, it'll be 3-4k

Yeah that's why I went with that first, despite all the BS I've read about Mobil1 on NABISCO. I trust the guru over anyone on there.

If you can hold off on your OC Dave I'll send you my diag info soon as I get it!

I have always used m1 5w30 since my car was new but, will be making the switch to rt6 in 1k miles. I have oil samples but, never sent them in. As far as what I did for my suby today.....I finally drove it this week. Usually only gets driven two days a week.

Cleaned the wheels a little bit. Changed the oil, did an alignment and a cooling system flush.

I got rid of the dumpy 5w-30 engine oil and tossed in some fresh rotella t6. Oil analysis to follow!

Damn dealership workers lol! I need to get mine over to our retail store so I can check balance an alignment from the factory. I'm just too busy to get over there (like 3 blocks down the street) and do it.

The ride is lookin' fresh btw!

I ran RP in the 350 a few times. What you mean? Color?.?.

I can say right off the bat though that the Rex def sounds better with the RP in it.

"I drove it" lol...love it! I actually get to do the same today for work. Company fishing trip for all the sales guys. Won't be able to contribute today though guys...this makes sad lol!

But it's a perfect excuse to drive the Rex 110 miles down to the CT coast and back!
