I highly recommend an early first oil change. we did ours at 2K miles.Got it. Thanks, Peter!
after that I go quite a ways. last one was at 20% remaining. I will eventually narrow in on a cycle for the explorer on my DD car I go all the way to OLM goes off - but half way through the cycle I replace the oil filter.
I time that with an app on my phone where I log the MPG and etc. (ACar if curious - there are some other good ones out there)
reasoning - even though the engine was run on a test stand, then shipped off to be installed in the car, where it was refiled and run again after the car was built. It has sat and there could be any amount of shavings and the like in the oil filter. So mostly it's to take out the filter, but also to put new clean oil in the car after a decent break in period.
