I'm using Mobil One 5W-30 with an M-104 Mobil one Oil filter. Just changed the oil again a few seconds ago as a matter of fact :)

How often are you changing the MOBIL 1, EVERY 5,000 MILES?

I can't figure out where SUBARU came up with 3,750 miles.:cool:

Why not make it 4,000 or 5,000 for that matter like ever other manufacturer.

TOYOTA, HONDA.. they are at 5,000 mile intervals.

I will stick to 3,750 and dyno oil for first 15,000 miles, but would like to switch to MO1 and 5,000 mile intervals, but don't know how that would affect the 100,000 mile extended warranty if something happens to engine.
Blame can be put on me cause they recommended every 3,750?

Very interesting! I should send them samples too. I am on Mobile1 5W30 Extended Service and Mobile1 filter Extended Service.

Interesting. Changed over to Amsoil 5w-30 (my son is a dealer) at 10,000 miles. Now using the Amsoil extended (25,000 miles) 5W-30. Also use the Amsoil "extended use" oil filter. Used 1 qt in 7500 miles. Assume the oil "usage" will drop with more miles (now about 23,000 miles).
