Dude I am not lying. Have no reason to. When conditions are right this thing sips fuel. Don't look at the instant. Look at the average of best over 50km and 100km. If I keep looking I can pull up pics of 650 km showing low 10's. No magic or tricks. Just actual grabs. My wife takes pictures all the time to record her km for reporting. Go try one and see for your self. Has blown my mind and changed my expectations of what a motor should perform. My 5.3 only gets as good as 13-15 on the norm. My eco gets 11.8-13 on average. We put a ton of miles on and get good milage figures on highway. Of course it goes to shit when you get to the city but straight highway this thing is that good.

So the oil changes at 5000k are not cheaper than a motor replacement. It has saved me a lot of money over the years and my truck is still running strong.
Each to their own I guess. Just my thoughts. If you pay for $50-70,000 for a new vehicle, why try and skimp on maintaining your investment??

Yup exactly. To each their own. If you really want to get into it the best way is to complete an oil analysis. You will be surprised at how much good oil people throw away. I think the big driver for the new OLM is to reduce waste and cut back on emissions. not that it is always good for your engine but just because it has always been done that way makes it the right way. I guarantee to you that oil technology and engine technology have got better over the years not worse. So the old change the oil every 3000 miles does not hold true any longer.

Fact is I do not skimp on truck maintenance. I follow it quite closely because my trucks are expensive and they are my life blood. By following the OLM is following manufacturers specifications. So far it has not let me down. This 09 Silverado is proof of that. My 07 before that was the same as well as our 14 and 17 models. All getting hammered with miles and pulling loads.

It's your vehicle, manage as you wish. The important thing is that oil is in it. Change the tranny fluid frequently and your tranny will last a life time also. 490,000 k on both original motor and tranny still going strong.

Also be sure to use a higher quality oil filter for longer drain periods. Cheap filters can become clogged and open the bypass valve. NO FILTRATION!

That's an easy fix Tony!!! Now read very carefully and pay attention!

-first undo the gas cap ( located on drivers side of vehicle)
- remove said cap
-slide truck ahead approx 30 feet.
- slide in new 2018 fully loaded Chevy truck
- replace gas cap and drive away happy!!!!!!

I guarantee this repair!

My semi got 8.32 mpg on the last run.. does that count?
Computer said average of 8.6 mpg, I think that works out to roughly 32 L /100 km.
(that is on a 940 mile run.)

My binder running 1500 at 98 was getting me that fully loaded 6 axle step deck. The Detroit likes rpm though. Best I got was pulling empty lowbed at 10.5 which was pretty good I thought considering the drag and weight.

I just went through the same problem on my 2009 5.3L. Oil pressure would slowly drop to 0....warnings and buzzer came on saying low oil pressure shut engine down. The little screen under the oil pressure sending unit is the usual culprit for those engines that have the screen...it plugs up. I bought a new sender and screen...I cleaned the old screen (returned the new one) but put the new sender in as I didn't want to go through the hassle of doing the job again. Figuring out how to disconnect the electrical plug from sender was a *****...all the videos on how to replace the sender without removing the intake were great but they all failed to show/tell how to disconnect the electrical plug. The son-of-a-***** has a sliding lock that you have to slide upward first then push another tab inward to release the plug. All's well now.

If a guy could see the connector would have helped...but had to go by feel.

I used a 1 1/16" deep set socket, wobble extension and an adapter to go from 1/2" to 3/8" and a 3/8" flex head ratchet. On a lot of the videos they all complained of bloodying their hands trying to get back in behind there...I didn't lose a drop.

Right on!

I did oil analysis on a couple of my vehicles many years ago to prove the 2500-3000 mile oil change is a bunch of bunk.

And you know what else is really funny...all these guys who profess 2500-3000 mile change intervals base it on a visual...the oil looks dirty...really!
