    XG10575 5,100 miles

    ZeeOSix you might be onto something. Also forgot to mention that I ran two tanks of E85 through the truck. From what I understand ethanol will remove carbon deposits from combustion chamber.

    XG10575 5,100 miles

    Thanks for the input guys. I'm not sure running this oil change 3k miles would make for a good comparison. Then one might argue that the reason there is less crud is because of shorter run. I'm probably going to go ahead with 5k mile interval just to keep it about same conditions. This last...

    XG10575 5,100 miles

    Thanks for the input. Yes it is sad, kind of took me by surprise actually. I might do that, run only 3k and see what it looks like. I get those ultras on ebay for five bucks delivered to my door, so I'm going to stick with them even though I know its a waste to run such filter for 3k to 5 k miles.

    Ecotec 5.3 oil filter bypass PSI discussion

    Buford I completely agree. There is very soldem filter will bypass. I think most people don't understand that it's the difference between filter inlet and filter outlet. Also I think GM is pushing thier filters a bit too hard too. If someone comes up with a way to test filter's bypass I wouldn't...
