Service Intervals, 7500 or 10,000 miles??

Everything relating to my pickup says that the oil needs to be changed every 7,500 miles. Ford Website and the Owners Manual.

But when I bought my pickup I went ahead and bought the 75,000 service package. After about 18 yrs of changing my oil I am done, getting lazy I suppose. Anywho, the finance guy that sold the package to me crossed out the 7,500 mile interval and wrote down 10,000 intervals.

What the hell? What is correct?

I've got 15k miles on my truck and have been changing at about 7k miles. Last oil change the message center on my truck recommended - change oil soon. I am following service manual so I don't have a future issue with waranty.

I look at it this way, I spent almost 60K on a truck, so I'll spend a few extra bucks and change the oil at 4, 000 miles.
Oil is the best insurance you can buy, especially if you still have EGR running.

The reply from the dealer on the matter.

Good Morning,

The information is correct...the diesel is 10,000 and the 6.2 gas is 7,500. You should have received a supplement in the package for the owners manuals for the new Ford diesel. If you did not please let me know so that I can get one mailed out to you. Occasionally, the manufacturer misses this when putting the books together. I hope you are enjoying your new super duty and if there is anything that we can do for you please let me know !

Thank you,
