I do not think I have seen this on the forum:
At 60,000 miles I made the change to their synthetic motor oil. I have done all my service so I do have a clue how to do the fluid changes. What I have noticed is after not having to add oil between the 6,000 mile intervals after about 2,500 miles the oil level was down to the dot in the center of the sight glass.
I always fill to the top of the glass(3.5 qt) and let it drop to the center over the 6,000 miles. Now, after filling back to the top(about 8+ oz) it is back almost to the dot and I am 1,000 from the change.
I have not seen any signs of leaking.
