Default Purolator's new 'BOSS' oil filter

Well not new theyve been out for a year or so.
My buddy has a Chevy suburban 2014 with 54k on it.
He has only used the Royal Purple oil and recently ran 17k on one of Purplator's BOSS filters.

His mechanic said his truck is in better shape than most 2015s.....


Just a thought. 17k between oil changes? Sheeeeesh what a Jew.

I have a 2012 Civic ... recommends synthetic with oil changes @ 12K

Any mechanic I've talked to says not to go that long.

I guess we'll see... synthetic is newer technology. Let's see if engines mileage actually increases !

Is that with conventional oil ?

I've always gone with 5K miles with 6 or 8 cylinders, and 3 -4 with 4 bangers.

With my new civic on synthetic, I've been going with 6K miles. (which is sooner than what is recommended)

I wouldn't filter fecal matter with a Purolator.

I change at 7,500 using semi-synthetic and OEM filter. That used to be the suggested interval in my car until they now bumped it up to every 10,000 or once a year.

Yes that is with conventional oil, I've been told many times not to use synthetic on low mileage engines as you want some wear in. My 2006 Jeep has just turned 50k and I may use synthetic the next time around. We normally have at least three vehicles between the two of us and mileage stays low.

With a '94 Ranger, you can get by with oil from the recycling center.

The greatest trick the devil ever pulled was getting people to believe that they need to change their oil every 3,000 miles. And when I say the devil, I mean the oil companies.

There is so much evidence showing that oil is still pretty much brand new at 3,000 miles that it just doesn't make sense.

My personal vehicles get 10k oil changes and my Sprinter gets 15K. All synthetic.

This is my first time using synthetic .... For warranty, had to use 0W-20 synthetic from new.

From what they say, the synthetic can go longer between changes, but you have to use the 'synthetic' filter as well ... guess it holds more tiny metal bits ?

I always heard 5000 miles ... When they made the change to 3K, that was for the 4 cylinders ... makes sense ... I guess they work harder ?

I wouldn't spend money on synthetic oil for a 22 year old vehicle unless the thing was absolutely mint.

It's only got 140000 on it some old dude had it before he passed. And plus 22 bucks for 5 quart jug of synthetic doesn't sound bad to me.

I'm sorry, but your membership to ET is being suspended until you
buy a proper vehicle which consumes atleast 12L/100kms. Bonus
points if it's replacement is unreliable.

The new Honda Civic is a really nice looking car. It is now as big as the older Accord.

My 96 Ranger has 87000 and my uncle who is a Ford mechanic put conventional in it. It also just had the 8 factory original plugs replaced! I guess every 100000 miles for plugs or when they get that old!

That's a scary subject I was looking around under the hood and noticed the plug wires said 1994 I'm guessing that original? Had me wondering if the plugs have ever been replaced.... I'll find out this weekend
