    My Accert would use less oil with chevron. I also switched engines once to get lower consumption. But that probably wasn't what you were asking.

    I just spent $30k on my 99 classic because I don't want pollution crap. Put a low milage signature 600 my other one spun a Bearing $45k to rebuild. A used engine sounded better. Bunch of small stuff. Should be good for a while

    So they use mobile delvac, that might have something to do with it. What are some recommendations for my next oil change?

    It is normal to have some oil drip out of there. CAT did make a catch can kit that contains a filter that is installed on the blow by tube and puts oil back in the oil pan.

    I don't have that kit on my truck and the underside is coated with oil spray from going down the road. I did however extend the tube with a piece of hose which helped some to keep oil from catching everywhere.
     
    Oxbow and Coloradoman Thank this.

    How many miles have you put on since your last service ? And have you use/burned any oil ? Is it low ?
