I missed my oil change interval. I'm now 300 miles over, and the new oil is still in the jug. :headbang:

Now, on one hand...it's really no big deal. I'm running synthetic oil, and Ford's OCI is 7500- so my 5k interval is way conservative.

On the other hand...this marks the second time in my vehicle-owning history that I've missed an oil change by so much as a single mile. And the first time, it was a 400 mile weekend trip that ended up being a hair over 1500 by the time I got home. Oil change came due around mile 1400. (And yes, I debated changing it in a parking lot 100 miles from home.)

This time- I just plain lost track. Lost track of what my odometer was the last time ('til I looked it up), and lost track of how fast I've been piling the miles on the last couple weeks. Bad combination, as it turns out...

So- the engineer in me says I've done effectively no harm, but I'm still about sick thinking about how stupid I was. :mad:

Oil lasts waaaaaaaay longer than people think.
