That's one of the big advantages of using Amsoil. I don't buy it as often. :lol:
I buy a case probably once a year, and I get two oil changes out of that case. I only have to change my oil about every 7-8 months because of the extended drain intervals.

I normally get two cases a year and change it anywhere between four and five thousand miles. I use the OE and it was on my front porch when I got home around 5PM yesterday. :thumbs:

I run the XL series, and I change it about every 6,000-7500 miles. Sometimes the dash light will say to change it around 6k, and sometimes it has let it go to almost 8k miles. But I usually don't do over 7500 regardless. The OE is a bit cheaper, but the way I look at it as the XL is cheaper in the long run because I get more miles per oil change with the XL. I am running the OE in my wife's car though, because it's still under warranty and I still change the oil per Nissans recommended intervals.

I run OE because you just can't convince me to keep any type of oil in a vehicle for more than 5,000 miles. I used to always change it at 3,000 when I used Valvoline. :dunno:

I was a bit skeptical at first as well. But after doing 5k mile oil changes for a while, I noticed that the oil was still very clean when draining it, and the oil life monitor light most of the time did not come on saying to change the oil yet. :dunno:
So I started going long and longer. I once went the full 15k miles that the XL Series is rated for, and that was the blackest I have EVER seen my oil. :lol:
I try to stay under 7500-8000 miles on each oil change. If I don't get a chance to change it right at 7500, I'm not scared because I know that I'm technically still Ok to run it a while longer. :dunno:
