If you're running Amsoil, what's your usual OCI? Are you getting your money's worth?

I would run whatever the warranty recommended for service. After that do as you please.

With big box brand synthetics running $12 /5quart after rebate I wonder why anyone is trying to stretch their magic oil.

I have only used Amsoil in one of my vehicles. I use the SS 5W-30 in my Suburban. I run it until the OLM says to change it, then change it when next convenient. If I am out of state on vacation, I wait until I get home. I am currently closing in on 8k miles with my current oil change and I have not gotten a message to change it yet. Most of the miles are towing a nearly 8k lb travel trailer under about any possible condition other than winter weather (we did pass some large snow banks in the Rockies in June however).

Am I getting my monies worth? No idea.

On the Kia, it's by the owners manual since it's still under warranty. 7k miles on SS 5w-30

On the Ram I have a bypass so it's once a year, typically 10k to 11k miles. SS 10w-30
