That 325 hours was probablyin 6 months or so, I am trying to go to the 1000 hour mark but will re-sample in 325 more hours.There is no bypass unit in the setup, since we have a problem with critters chewing on wiring I have not opened the cabinet with external bypass.

Jeesh you could probably easily roll another 600 hours with just top up oil!

Man, Isuzu makes good engines AND the Amsoil is doing a good of protecting it.

I'm with pickled, double the usage and just use top off oil to replenish the TBN.

We are figuring 50 mph, the machine runs 98% @ 2k rpm....

I am working on a 1200 hour run before we change...that would be 60k and would be quite cost efficient

Hi,
Pablo - You said:

"There is no wear."

We do not know if the 1.5 gals topup has been factored in to the UOA result. It is not mentioned in the Lab. report!

However, these engines wear well on almost any suitable lubricant!

Well yes if that much oil was added it probably helped the TBN. And of course if Amsoil did well, it's because the engine always does well regardless.

The Amsoil 15/40 and the straight 30 are IMO the best oils Amsoil makes well proven over the years, no fancy hype they just plain work .

Typically the oil add is as follows..

2 qts for oil filter...
4 qts over 300 hours.....we have a guy who thinks the oil level needs to be right up to the top of the line...

Actually we used 2 gallons per 200 hours with dino and before I used the Auto RX...
