    I know I thought the same thing. every 7,500 is pretty long. 500 and I'll have 3,000, I was going to do the first at 3,000.

    I am going to do my first oil change ASAP with Royal Purple break in engine first, then use Royal Purple synthetics all the way after every 4,000 to 5,000 miles.

    I was told by a friend that the oil they put in at the factory had special lubercants in it. He recomended that the first oil be changed acording to the user manual. Any truth to this? I am coming up on my first thousand miles.

    My "prepaid" service program seems to be following the "heavy duty" maintenance interval, so unless I notice anything weird going on, it's gonna be whatever they put in it at the dealership every 5,000 miles. I do look at the stick every couple weeks to make sure everything stays sorted.

    %00k seems about right for most cars and light trucks, MY CHevy colorado has that engine oil life monitor, I changed the oil at 4500, after it was new, I could not wait any longer it was freaking me out thinking the oil life monitor was not working (it actually just keep track of how you drive it.. it doesn't actually monitor the oil) Well the way I drive it, the change oil message came on at 13,200 miles !!!!

    Needless to say I change it far more ofter then it tells me to..

    First Oil Change..

    Just did it a few minutes ago. Very easy to do and did a Puralator premium oil filter, and Mobil one 0W-30 gas saving oil. Will see how it works ....
