    Hello everyone,

    I am going to do my first oil change on my 2013 4.6 Tundra. I have always read that using full synthetics significantly extends the number of miles between required oil changes (sometimes even double the interval). Can any of you Mobil 1 users tell me how many miles you drive between oil changes? I drive a normal combination of around-town and highway but I've put on quite a few miles in the 6-7 weeks I've owned the truck so I want to run good oil.

    Thanks,

    David

    I've used Mobile1 syn. since I bought mine in 07. I've gone anywhere between 5k and 7k on my oil changes. All depending on where I've driven, towed or how the oil looks. I have 60k on it and running fine.

    I try for 5k but I don't fret it if it goes a little above that.
