Not one for stretching OCI. 8500 miles? Nope. 3500 and no more for me. $30 bucks. But I can understand people that drive a lot of miles for 3500 to be unreasonable.

Blackstone Labs told me I was wasting money changing my Royal Purple at 3K intervals after they tested my used oil, so now I go to 4500 miles between changes.  Having Blackstone test my used oil was well worth the 25 bucks it cost.

I look at the reports more like a watchdog than a reason to stretch my intervals. I average 15-18k miles a year and typically try to change oil every 5-6k miles. It's good to be able to look at data once or twice a year and quantify things like fuel dilution, solids, and water in the system to use as indicators to see if antifreeze or excessive fuel  is starting to enter the system. Also how well the filters are functioning to keep the abrasives at bay.
