Default Hello

My name is Wayne. I just purchased my 2011 plain jane ranger last week. I traded in my 2007 Dodge Ram 4x4 (11.5 mpg) I owned a '97 Ford F-150 for 10 years before that and a 1966 Ford F-100 before that. This is my first small truck but so far I'm lovin' it. Sorta drives like a sports car.

Do you know whether this truck comes with synthetic oil or conventional? The manual says 7500 miles before first change.

Welcome... And most newer cars believe it or not have higher change intervals even on conventional oils... Synthetic oils on some new cars have intervals of almost 10,000 or so. I would still change it every 3000 though. It can never hurt your engine by changing your oil often.
