I have a 2015 gmc denail duramax 2500 and my dealer has cbanged it when the milage was about 5500, and filled the def up with 2.5 to 5 gal. We have a little over 20,000 and just over 1year won't come close to 2 years, but thats ok. Truck has been GREAT. Service also.

Be sure to top off the trans fluid when changing this spin filter as the spin filter is full of fluid when removed. Not much, but.
Ok thanks. I will ask for that at my next oil change, which is coming up soon.

The Chevy dealer said the same thing when i was in Marianna, Florida doing some scuba caving diving with my chevy truck. Ford Didn't give me any free oil changes but I guess they don't have to get some to by their trucks :roflb lack:

I just did my last one at 20%. I had to take a day off to get our 5th wheel serviced, so I killed two stones with one bird and got the diesel oil changed as well.

Thanks for all the replies....

So it looks like the answer is that it depends on the Dealer!

Says a lot if I want to do business with this dealer in the future too.. If they turn me away cuz it's not below 15% I'll think about that when I'm in the market for the next truck!

My dealer said to bring it in at 20%. I said I change at 50% or 5000 miles, whichever comes first, especially after towing threw hills and mountains.

Im gonna find out soon. I want my first, break-in oil change done on my new GMC Duramax before i get over 2500 miles, maybe even before....even if i have to pay for it myself.
We'll see, i got a few friends at dealers though, that will help!

My last two free oil were at changes were at 22-24% because I had 2,500 mile trips ahead of me with no time to stop along the way. It was no problem.

Cool!
Honestly the maintenance plan deal is nice.....but for what i payed for the truck, it would be silly to worry about a $60-100 oil change or 4 of them. But I'll gladly take them!!!
