My oil was expected to go until 12,000 miles for each oil change. I drive 100 miles a day for work and 95% of that is on an interstate. I went ahead and did at 10,000 miles. Maybe you hit the 1 year mark on the oil?
Just did my second oil change. I read that these can go too far in the oil pan and cause the oil not to fully drain. I can confirm that I still needed to do the full 3.7 quarts with the oil filter change.
38 MPG I assume
How fast were you going? I can get all the way up to 54 MPG if I'm on a non hilly road and going 45 mph
now on my work commute I get 42 MPG going between 68 - 71 MPH
So if you were going any faster I can see where you would get 38/35 MPG. Also a head wind really hurts MPGs
I have the generic one, EZ-106. I have only done a oil change on the car, so I can't talk about flow rate, but it hasn't leaked any and was easy to install.
i've had it happen three timed in the 12,000 miles on my hatchback..........if you turn off the car and start it again it works.....I assume that whatever program handles it has a critical error and crashes
On my 50 mile commute in hilly South West Wisconsin, I've tested different speeds and mpgs
74 mph = 38 mpgs 40.5 minute travel time
70/71 = 41 mpgs 43 min
65 = 46 mpgs 46 min
60 = 52 mpgs 50 minute travel time
so depending on how quick i need to get to/from work...
SW Wisconsin here. Only dealer I've talked to is Richardson's in Dubuque IA...they don't think that they will get one this year. I assume Zimbrick's in Madison will get a couple, and they are good about not adding adm
My mileage is at 8k and at 40% on MM. I should get over 12k miles before it gets to 0%, but will change at 10K miles. My commute is almost all highway. I only have 3 stop signs on my route to get out of town and by then my oil is at operating temp.
