Stand corrected. Still think 15k is too long for an oil change warranty or not

Agreed. But I have a customer who consistently goes over by 10k miles so he's going 25 to 30k between olive changes and it's over 300k now. That's one a 14 Ram 6.7 and a 16 Chevy 6.6.

I don't doubt it at all especially on the 6.7 when they are being worked....and it appears he is. Did the EGR fall off his 6.7 truck? If it did I don't blame him for running 20- 25k if he's working it. Bout right for an industrial and medium duty engine application which the 6.7, and it's precursor the 5.9, really were/are. Most folks don't realize they weren't originally designed for a "pickup" or for Dodge at all.
Don't need bypass filtration to do that mileage on an inline Cummins either...just a good quality oil and filter of which there are many.

Yes sir. They take a beating and keep performing. Like I've said before I've abused the **** out if my 12v. I can walk out right now and fire it up and it hasn't been driven in over a year ( need a new transfer case) its been way over on all of it's oil and fuel filter changes and driven like I stole it something like 280xxx on it and hasn't shown any signs of giving up. Year and a half plus with no overdrive and driven at redline running back and forth to Vegas from 29 palms and everywhere in between deployments.

No bypass filters. Yes I have been working on them since new. Ram needed a egr cooler at 80k them def system took a crap at 160k and it was all removed and tuned at that time. 350k on it now and have done a turbo actuator and water pump since then. Duramax dpf took a dump at 102k and got trashed and tuned at that time. His 15 GMC exploded a cp4 at 160k and it was just traded as is for the 16 Chevy

You bring up a good point Tree Cowboy and certainly one that will generate a lot of different view points. I'll generally follow the manufacturer recommendations for interval, but only use synthetic oil. Even on the oil change intervals at 10k miles I would not go that long on regular mineral oil, it would have to be synthetic.

We have a sister company that runs semis and its interesting that the newer trucks go 45k miles between oil changes, but that's an entirely different application versus our daily drivers.

I am relatively new to this, but your points on bypass filtration made me do some research to see how it works and i might look at putting one of these on my Titan. It makes sense.
