How often are you changing your synthetic? I was considering synthetic where I would just change my oil, oil filter, fuel filter every 10K. Is anyone else doing this.
My truck is pretty pampered, no heavy towing yet, not running up many miles.
How important is the “date of oil change” because right now I have exceeded the date of sticker (oil change) but still have 1800 miles or so left before reaching max mileage.

The P.O. had the oil changed before I bought the truck in June 18 - sticker says Chevron products but doesn’t list actual oil but is hand written that it was 10w30?
