Did you leave the filtering element in the 'can or not?

What are your driving habits? I hardly ever hit 1/2 throttle and my can fills up a little bit more than 1/2 every week.

I left the filter in, wasn't I supposed to?

I drive it kinda hard sometimes and kinda like a granny other times. Either way I can go for almost a month before it completely fills.

You are supposed to, some people don't for some reason.

Try driving like a granny all the time for a week or two, you might be suprised (and you'll get better mpg to boot).

i ran high mileage once in order to kinda break down crap and help seals, if the high mileage formula does what it says, then moved to full synthetic. i run quaker state 10w30 in summer, then 5w30 in winter. i only run quaker state unless i make some more money then ill start using redline or royal purple. also mine has 137,000 miles on it but it looks great, under hood too, and runs like new so full synthetic will make it run even longer. have a ford taurus ran full synthetic in it at 100,000 miles, now it has 195,000 miles and runs better then when we got it, since i replaced a few more parts and a crapped out a/c compressor(what a pain and mess).

beacause the colder it is the thicker it makes the oil.

You would too if you lived up north. Thick oil doesn't flow well when its cold so the engine isn't well lubricated during start up.

I live in Cincinnati, and ya know what....5w30 all year round. 86K miles and way less than 1/2 a quart per oil change in topping off.

I love synthetics

Jeep, I assume you change your own oil, right? So what do you do with the old oil? What do you store it in until you can dispose of it properly?
