Anyone run Mobil1 Ext. protection?

I put it in my truck last time i went to walmart, said good for 15k miles. its been little over 10k and wondered if i should go on and do it to 15k or have it changed now. They put the default fram filter on, should i get a longer life filter or will it handle filtering for 10-15k miles.
typical driving 25 miles 1 way everyday no stop and go traffic til after work and its a good 8 minute drive before i get to the interstate. i do no towing, will this summer in august tho.

mobil one recommends you run their filter.

i run the extended life 15k mile stuff with their filter. i think if i was u i would change it, you need to run the mobil 1 filter with the mobil 1 extended life oil. it should be a M1-210 i think. it will say for extended mobil 1 oil.

i change my oil between 10k and 15k

ive been using mobil 1 since i got 3,000 miles on my truck, i now have 64k.

you still have to change the filter I'm sure. I wouldn't go any longer than 5000 miles on a filter.

I would believe it would be alright. They wouldnt put 15k on the box if it couldnt last 15k. Next time I will try the 15k Mobil 1 instead of this 5k Mobil 1 stuff.

Question to all: Is it bad that im running a Fram filter with my Mobil 1 5k?

I run Mobil 1 Ext Performance in the Grand Marquis with a Mobil 1 filter. The car doesn't get driven 15k miles a year any more but I plan on changing it out when it hits 1 year or a little later. B4 the ext performance, I was running the normal M1 5w30 w/ a M1 filter and changed it out every 7 months.

I personally am not a Fram fan and only run Amsoil/Mobil 1 filters (Amsoil filter/Amsoil 5w30 in the Ranger...Mobil 1 Ext Performance/Mobil 1 filter in the Grand Marquis). I wouldn't run 15k miles unless I had a M1 filter in there.

I believe he is talking about the extended performance mobil 1 (That's the only one they have guaranteed to last 15k miles) and that is a synthetic.

its a full synthetic.
but next time i go if its not raining ill do it myself, if it is ill just buy a filter and give it to them
if it cost me 40 bucks to do it every 15k miles compared to 20 every 3-5k im making good on savings.

Thats some pretty interesting info, I still use the tough guard frams, but it said they were the best of the frams, but still kinda scary.
