75k in just over 41 months of ownership. Won't be 3.5 years old until Jan. 13. Catch can installed at less than 300 miles and probably less than 15 miles ever driven in V4 mode. Use M5 when not using the Range devise.

Also changed oil just prior to this picture..............drove 20+miles, took the picture and drove home.

Oil change prior to this was on October 2 at 67,3xx on the clock. So; I drove a bit over 7500 miles in 2.5 months. Some here would say I'm abusing my truck by not changing out oil at 5000 mile or less intervals. Not too many here drive that much in that short a time, and tend to be the pseudo-experts here. :lol: 8-)

Notice the "average" MPG on the DIC also...................Twas at 21.5 prior to my 20 mile jaunt around suburbia today to hit 75,000 after my oil change.

Just typing................and saying.

you are racking up the miles. How long do you normally keep a truck?

30 days x 41 months = 1,230 days

75,000 miles / 1230 days = 61 miles per day, everyday, for 3.5 years xD

You drive a lot! Got to do what you got to do. Impressive mpg by the way.

I change my oil every 12,500 miles if that helps your feelings ha

As long as you take care of things they seem to last for some reason. Until some of you guys recently posting how much you drive i thought my little 500 miles a week (not including if i take it on the weekend somewhere) was a lot

Just as an FYI....I'm averaging 2350 miles a month. My commute round trip 5X a week is 85.5 miles, and I'm changing the oil every 5K.
