Rotella t6

So, after reading several threads on the t6, I decided to do the switch. I did the switch yesterday, the only ? I have, is what mileage do you change oil out with it? 2500-3000?

I change it out around 2500 to 3000 miles. Changing oil sooner can't hurt, it can only help. Some people extend it to 5000 miles. I only ride street.

Yeah I do about the same as you all. I don't track ride, but I commute to work and ride back roads. Mostly because I live in the country-ish area and work in the city.

I go between 3 and 4k miles. Even after that long my oil barely look dirty. I've been meaning to send it out for testing to see the condition and how well it stands up to 4000 miles without being changed.

I went with rotella for the last 2 changes, btw.
