Seann, I feel for you buddy, if I drove a Chev I would want to get all the help that I could!!!!
JUST KIDDING. I am due for my first oil change on my new Ram the first week of January and I have several years of free oil changes that were part of the negotiation when I bought my truck. In my old truck I used Amsoil but have no idea if it made a difference as it only had 65,000 Kms on it when it went back.
My truck is garaged so I think I will stick with regular oil for a while. I only have 3600 Kms on it in 6 months so I don't put that much on the clock and I have only pulled my 5th wheel on one trip so far.
