I have 6600 miles on my 5.3L and it has not used a drop of oil. The dipstick is still at the full mark.


My 2016 Silverado 1500 is doing good with 7600mi no oil loss/consumption either. :D :D :D

I have had the AFM disabled on my truck since about 10K. I have over 135K now and no oil lost between changes yet.

Yep, both of those guys are super bummed on it. I told them to tune it but both are not really good with the wrenching.
