6K miles for first oil change

I have about 5K miles on my diesel and the oil indicator says I have about 25 percent remaining. I have been doing some towing. Does this seem to be about the average that everyone is getting?

Re: What is the breakin period prior to towing?

Re: Let the pot watching begin!

Right now the wait is not as long as you think. I got my vots number on 10/17 and it was built, inspected, and in shipping on 11/06. Thats not bad. I bet I will get it by the 27th.
