Just wondering if I should change mine more often because it doesn't get driven near as much with the diesel prices so high. It gets driven less than 2k a year now.

Been using Rotella T 15W40 and changing every 5000 miles. Switched to AMSOIL 15W40 and AMSOIL filter. Going for 25,000 miles between changes with an analysis at 10,000 and 20,000 miles.
