I went ahead and changed my own oil, oil filter, cabin filter, and sent in a Oil Sample to Black Stone Labs. The 2017 Toyota Tundra has canister filter. This requires a special filter tool to remove. I initially thought I could use the same one I saw on a You Tube Video for the 2015 Model. I was wrong. I ended up draining the oil from my engine through the regular drain plug. When I tried using the incorrect filter tool, I could not remove the filter. I had to call an Uber Driver to pick me up and take me to the local Parts Store. I found a Tool that said it could remove Toyota Tundra Filters. It was larger and more durable than the original tool I was using. When I left the parts store I noticed across the street a couple and some random guy were fighting. I called the police on them and got into another Uber Car for my ride home. The pictures above show the sample bottle I used and the unique mailing container provided by Black Stone Labs. I am interested in seeing the results. I had a little over 300 miles on the engine before switching to AMSOIL Signature Series. I put a little over 10,000 miles on the Oil. I also used Lucas Fuel Injector cleaner on almost every single fill up. Several years from now I want to break down the engine to see how clean the internals are. AMSOIL Signature Series can last up to 1 year or 25,000 miles. The length of the oil life depends on several factors such as: driving conditions, engine oil capacity, heat, engine type, and a bunch more. I drive my Toyota Tundra in bad southern California traffic over 40 miles each day. Its mainly highway miles but sometimes the highways here are stop and go. I also changed the Cabin Air Filter. That was very easy to do. The Cabin Filter is used to filter the air that goes into your A/C before it enters your car. I used a WIX Brand I ordered off the AMSOIL Website. I noticed it was much thicker than the stock filter. I also spread the filter open and saw some small dead bugs. This filter was around 7 months old and it already started turning dark.
