If your going to switch, why not move to a synthetic?

Personally i change my oil too often to justify spending the extra money on a synthetic.

With synthetics you can change less often, saving time and money when you figure out the cost per mile

Well if you run a full synthetic, how many miles should you go before you change your oil?

I usually change every 4000 or so miles and I dont think I would feel comfortable going on past that. Because my oil turns black as soon as I start it after a oil change. Ive been thinking about getting a soot sucker bypass filter.

I think with a diesel that your oil is going to turn black anyway. I used to change oil in tri axles and right after it gets changed. So ive come to accept that fact.

I use the valvoline premium blue extreme 5-40 in the winter and the 15-40 in the summer. Used it pretty much every oil change in my truck since i owned it and loved every second. The one change I didn't use it some victory lube I stopped in at because I was way past my oil change interval put in some rotella and it smelled like crap for 3000 miles until i drained it out of there. The oil burn off during that change was greatly increased and it was a noticable drop in level as opposed to when I used the premium blue.

I have used Rotella in my truck since I bought it 1 yr. ago. I have never noticed this so called smell, and my truck has 183,000 miles and between changes and on 1,000 mile road trips it never loses a drop. The dip stick is ALWAYS dead on where I filled it to. Everybody I know who drives semi's use Rotella and swear by it, but everybody has their choice and opinion. I thought about switching but I change mine every 3,000 miles every time, it would be a little to costly to change brands.. JMO
