    Here's the link to the F150 forum with the guy having over 300,000 miles on his ecoboost F-150. He gave it to his son when it had 366,000. You can read through the thread to see he tows 85% of the time and the only thing I saw he did more often than the owner's manual recommendations is change his spark plugs every 50,000. No oil catch can no induction cleaning.

    Also while researching if I require an oil catch can. I found this article from 2011 at Edmunds, a site I have used often over the years, heck even when it was in book form pre-internet. It talks about the early adopters of GDI and how now (2011) many of the issues have been eliminated.

    I have decided to simply do the maintenance as recommended by the owner's manual with the exception of changing the plugs every 50,000 miles.

    Plugs might still be a good thing to do earlier than later. Someone on here changed em earlier than necessary a while back and they were pretty worn for the low mileage he had

    Got a new 2017 XLT as a company truck on 2/26/18. As of 6/10, I have 9.2k miles (11% remaining on oil life indicator) with the first oil change coming up on 6/15.

    An oil catch can was installed at 2k.

    That was likely me. Plugs are cheap and easy to swap. Gaps were off pretty good. I think a 50k change interval is in ones best interest.
