    I thought the X15 required the 10w30 semi synthetic????
    If you're trying to save money do the Cummins extended program, 80,000 mile intervals, free oil samples every 10k.

    I have one and it was barely registering, but I took a load to the burning man festival in the black rock desert, and that alkali dust was just sitting in there slowing getting sucked through the filter into my engine. When they pulled it out of the housing, it was like smoke rolling off of it. Not sure why it wasn't restricting the air flow more than it was showing.

    Pretty much those three you mentioned are the most common, and they’re nationwide. If you cannot bobtail, Walmart’s with an Auto Care Center can also take your used oil. Their limit may be 3 gallons, though.

    I just bought myself another gauge recently. It could be yours isn’t working anymore. I watched a video, by the way, that mentioned that you may not see anything on the gauge until after 50k miles.

    Gas stations. Grocery stores. Don't accept used oil.

    If I go to a Speedco, I do the basic oil change. Oil and Oil filters. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE, not even the windshield washer fluid. I watch them very carefully. Usually $150 less than the standard full service with lubrication and fuel filters. They never grease it right, and they usually spin the filters on too loose or too tight. The only reason I do it at all is problems getting rid of the old oil.

    My dad had the oil changed in his N14 powered motorhome, and the shop charged him $750. I told him that’s outrageous, and to let me do it for him next time.

    Next time, with about 4000 miles on the oil, he had the same shop do it.

    Do your own oil changes.

    Put a 50 gallon drum in your garage and dump the old oil in it. Call up a local guy to come pump it out when it's full. They won't make a special trip for 50 gallons, but wil gladly stop in their way back from pumping out a shops tank. If you don't want to keep a drum in your garage, then id just pr it back into the oil jugs and run them up to any shop or auto parts store. They will all take it. It's free money for them.

    Also you don't need a fancy expensive oil drain pan. Get a cheap cooler at Walmart with a drain plug.
