Sooooo waiting for people to arrive so some pontification is in order. If it had a program to account for synthetic oil I would say it would extend the oil change interval, HOWEVER, you may have now have another program for filter change or recommendation for bypass filter. So lets say the truck is programed to do all the above. The big question is what would people do?? Some would follow the program to the letter. Others would change the oil early for several reasons, that is how they have always done it/my dad did it that way/I read it was better on the forums/my buddy said to do it/I always doit if it rains a lot/I always do it if it is dry a lot/ I just like to work on my truck so I change it a lot/I use cheap oil so I change it early/ ect. Others would go past the recommended interval for several reasons, that is how they have always done it/my dad did it that way/I read it was better on the forums/my buddy said to do it/I always doit if it rains a lot/I always do it if it is dry a lot/I use expensive oil. The people who build the trucks have to look at everything the trucks will be expected to do and everyone that is driving/working on them, and come up with a workable program. In the end I bet it is kind of a SWAG on how they come up with the interval programing. Well enough for today hope everyone has a Marry Christmas!!
