    Thinking of switching from M1 oil...

    Really? Would that cause blow by? I've idled my past two trucks the same way, and neither of them have used any oil. I picked up some Mobil 1 EP oil and Filter today at Advance Auto on sale. It's 15,000 mile oil, but at what mileage would you guys recommend changing it out to send in for an oil...
