Oil changes for gassers are getting close to diesels. My 2015 5.3L Silverado required 9.5 quarts of oil. (Why they could not have rounded that off to an even amount baffles me.)

Interesting just changed my oil in the Cummins 12 quarts of oil $35 and the oil filter was $6 at advance.................... My diesels though older have never cost much more than the gas engines to maintain ........ Much better fuel economy too
