I recently did my fourth D & F on my ' '06 V70. Think I'll do one every other oil change (10k). Is that overkill ?

Not overkill, but I’d tighten up that OCI.

To me 5k is too long. I’d shoot for 3-4K tops even though yours is NA. Synthetic of course. 10k for ATF is great.

Really, I was told and always thought at 3k change w/ synthetic your wasting oil. I think I'll start doing this interval. Thanks

Not wasting, just use it in your 2-cycle engines :lol:

I think most would agree that the 7,500 mile OCI Volvo calls for is pretty much double what these engines should really be seeing.

I buy oil when it’s on sale & mail in rebates are available. Another way to save money is to run 15-40 in summer temps. At summer temps 15-40 is the same as 5-40.

You settle the oil change interval question with data from Blackstone.

My all highway P2 driven tested like new oil at 7500 miles, even TBN was like new, no water, no fuel.

I change it at 7500 and top off the T5 with the old oil

As a point on topic, who actually gets their oil tested?

What kind of info do you get out of it that makes it worth the while?

Fleets do this to maximize value of maintenance dollars. Economically it doesn’t make as much sense for a single car (tests cost $25) except to gather info on your oil aging pattern.

Here is an example of oil changed at 7500 miles, I don’t have to guess engine or oil condition on one of my prime runners. In this case , after 7500 miles my oil is still like new. I choose to change it on this car, one of my two prime cars, and use the oil as top,off for my winter or Airport rats
