    I temporarily. solved the oil pan to oil pump seal leak. I tightened the oil pan bolts. It has been almost 2000mi and the oil leval has not moved. Not bad for 218k mi. I just started Mobil 1 oil last fall.
    How many mile on oil change with Mobil 1?

    Personally I go 5,000 between oil/filter changes. It's easy on the scheduling.

    Yes that is with Mobil 1 as well. It's a little over kill for a synthetic but as I said it's easy on the scheduling and if I can't get to it right at 5k I figure I have a little time still.
