Lightbulb Post your latest oil change

Thought that this might be a thread of interest and maybe a way for some to keep track of their oil changes. Basically post the vehicle you changed the oil on, at what mileage and how long you go on the oil change. If you follow the oil life monitor (OLM) then post at what percent it was reading at the time of the change. Also what brand oil/weight and oil filter you use.

Here is an example;

2011 Acadia, 4.5 qts AMSOIL OE 5w-30 and an EaO18 oil filter, 5k miles with OLM reading 5%, miles on vehicle 19k.

Or simpler

2011 Acadia
AMSOIL OE 5w-30
EaO18 filter
5k miles
5% OLM
19k total miles

Re: Post your latest oil change

2012 Sierra

AMSOIL OE 5W30
AC Delco PF48 filter
~1,000 miles (no clue on OLM)
~1 month on the oil
~2,000 miles on the truck currently

I'll change it again when the odometer hits 5k miles and then will be on 5k oil change/tire rotation intervals from there.
