But I happen to disagree with you, that's all. Why do you think Ford recommends an OCI of 10,000 miles when the customer is the one footing the bill for oil changes? Their dealers could be making 3x more $ if they just recommended a 3,000 mile OCI.
I didn't take it that way, just like to give myself hell.

I believe the 10000 mile intervals are to make the Al Gores in the world happy.

I am just glad you guys do not call people like me stupid and believe all the press instead. It is a to each his own debate, but I was on some other forums where this was getting crazy (i was trolling), and figured I would rant with a good crowd.
