I just changed mine yesterday. A bit over the 5,000-mile mark. I used the Mobil 1 5W-30 since it'* so damn cold out now.

What'* the real difference between the "Truck and SUV" Mobil 1 5W-30 and the regular?
WalMart did not have ANY 5 qt jugs of 5W-30. They never keep their stock up (another reason I hate WalMart) The truck and suv is for "hard working engines, towing, etc." but I would think it would be ok to use in an everyday car, right?

I ended up getting 5 separate 1qt jugs of the regular though. Wasted $8.

Its nice not having to change it so much. Oh and satisfaction on Mobil 1? My engine runs WAY smoother, especially at high RPMs, I get better gas mileage, and I know my engine will be protected in the severe cold like we're having right now.
CUT OPEN A WIX FILTER AND YOU FRAM THING AND COMPARE..... ITS FRICKEN CONSTRUCTION PAPER?
I don't use a Fram. I use an AC Delco PF47 And in another discussion, it has been shown that a Purolator PureOne is the same as a Mobil 1 filter but WAY cheaper. So that will be my next. And yes. don't yell.
