It sure does run better. I have noticed it.

And I enjoy some concrete time, the flat surface helps reset my back and neck. There will come a day, though, when I won't want to lay on the concrete.

Doesn't happen much today with computer controls but carbed vehicles can have diluted oil from excess fuel. Engine operation may change after a service. Actually, after doing a carb o-haul we needed to do it before sending owner to emissions testing. Could and did fail from dirty/diluted oil alone.

I know for a fact our Suburban runs better after an oil change.

No idea. I haven't driven it enough to need an oil change. :confused:

Scott, I'm not sure where Burleson is but if it's not too far from Conroe, I'd be happy to swing by from time to time and put some miles on your GMC.
