Oil change intervals (Fumoto valve info)

I have a 2018 F150 King Ranch diesel. The "smart" oil change monitor generally has reached 0 at 5000 miles or slightly more. This month it went to zero in only 2500 miles. Being frugal, I'm reluctant to change the oil at only 2500 miles. What mileage are other folks getting before the oil monitor reaches zero? Any advice?

Depends on conditions and towing etc. I use to have the oil changed at 5 thousand mile intervals but that is waste. So now I follow the oil monitor system it will tell you.

I just got my 4th oil change at 15,000 miles and I have just been going by the oil monitor. I think lots of short trips and idling make it decrease quicker, but I am not sure. It was supposed to be 10,000 miles between changes, but I have never broken 5000.

Mine just rolled over 6100 miles and still shows 30% oil life remains. I'm going to get my first change soon.

I just rolled over 11k miles and I've done 4 oil changes so far. My commute is 4 miles each way in the city. According to the oil life monitor, a change is required every 2,500 miles or so. Although I'm sure I could get more milage out of the Rotella T6, oil is cheap and it certainly doesn't hurt to change it early. These engines are not going to be cheap to repair so I'm going to play it safe.

Thanks. The short trips certainly answer the question. I'm going to change it as soon as my Fumoto F106 N valve comes in!

Was it ever confirmed that is the correct Fumoto part? IN the other thread people mentioned it not fitting. I posted like 2 weeks ago according to the Fumoto site that is the wrong part number. This is probably the lowest activity forum I have ever been on so I have been anxiously awaiting someone to reply with more info...lol. I plan to do the same when I do my first oil change sometime in the next 1,000 to 8,000 miles

Fumoto F107 SX with adapter ADP 107 SX is what I have ready to order. I thought this was the one we needed.

Yeah, I originally got the F106 but it didn't fit. Ended up finding the F107 fits perfectly. I've had it on since the second oil change and it works great. Makes oil changes a breeze.

Now you got me worried. I got the F106 off another thread in the forum. I'll order the 107 and clear it up for the group.
