Every 5000 miles, regular oil
1. The math is simple.
2. Regular oil works just as good for my style of driving.
3. Never had an oil related engine failure.
4. I'll run out of time (5 years) before the 100,000 miles.
5. I'll have a new truck shortly after the 100,000 miles.

My truck usually only gets used 5K miles per year, and I change the oil twice a year, so I selected 3000. Might start using synthetic, though...and go to once a year.

I'm still getting the Chrysler oil change deal. It went up to $80 for $65. But for 4 oil changes on the Hemi for $80 is still a great deal. I go on about 4 big trips a year with my trailer. So I change it right before my trips.

I average about 7,000 miles a year. so oil and filter gets changed once a year with synthetic oil and a wix filter.
