In case anyone in here is truly serious about extending their oil change intervals, or may just be curious about how their engine is holding up based on their used oil. I've posted one of my Blackstone Lab reports you get when you have your oil analyzed. The report below was for my '03 Cobra. If you look at the columns you'll see the results from 2 separate tests. One done at 13,375 miles and 16,920 miles. If anyone is interested I can dig up the report for the Ecoboost and post that too.

|ecostang2015||I did my first oil change in my '15 after the first 3K I put on it, I bought it with 20K, at 23K I changed it, then every 5K after that I've been changing it, since it is a synthetic blend, it can go 5K, I wouldn't recommend 7.5K|

|agwood||Ok 3,000? I just hit 1,000 so I'll keep that in mind. I am going to switch to full synthetic as well, you mind if I ask what you used? I have always used Pennzoil's line of full synthetics, do you have another preference?|

First Oil Change
I am new to the site. I've had 2 Mustangs but just picked up a 16 EcoBoost last week and I have a question about the oil. I have heard mixed reviews as to when the first oil change should be on a brand new car. The break-in period is 1000 miles, and Ford doesn't specify in the owner manual, it just says change it every 7,500. Should the oil be changed before that, as there could be gunk circulating in the oil due to burn off from the brand new engine? Or with these new cars do they want you to break it in for the full 1000+ with the original oil?
