If you've got a way to pull the oil filter off a 350 in an IFS truck without giving the front driveshaft a bath, I'm all ears.
By the way, there's an apostrophe in "that's", a Y and O in "your", CAPITAL I and apostrophe in "I'm". And I have to presume you meant "less THAN 30"

I have always used Valvoline. I used Duralube until about 75,000 miles and have used high mileage blend since. My 2001 Silverado 4.3 now has 213,000 miles and doesn't burn any oil.

I did it all by myself. I feel so self sufficient.

Definitely cheaper to do it yourself and it's good to get your hands dirty once in a while.

I use a taller wash bucket with the lift, doesn't splash that way. The crossover pipe is the mess maker when I change the oil. The oil shoots out and hits the lower half and that propels it another 4-6 inches. I have to move the bucket with the oil until it stops hitting the exhaust and then wipe it down.David

I change my own oil. Use Mobil one or Amsoil synth. I believe the oils are better than they used to be and synth can go 10,000 miles without issue. I had Amsoil tested a couple times at 10,000 miles and it was good to go more.

Here in the Philippines, it's very cheap to have a mechanic change the oil, around $5, so I let my trusty mechanic do it.
