Looks good. Very consistent #'s, despite different oils. ASM Tbn must have been a fluke.

XL was break-in wear. I should do another run with it.

I think 0W-30 in this engine is a winner.

Right now I'm back on ASM.

Are you using any bypass filtration or just the ea filter?

What one SSO that looks good in a [censored] cat of an engine and you are declaring SSO a winner. 18K in 6 months could hardly get much easier on the oil that is all HWY miles. How do you explain all the lack luster SSO UOA we see on this site? I will say it does look like it is performing stellar in this application but I would bet M1 0W30 would do almost as well and cost a lot less. People always discredit any good UOA in a Toyota so I am thinking we should do the same for Amsoil and not count Honda or Toyota power plants because they turn in great numbers on almost any oil except Schaffers!LOL

So Pab's you need to find something like a direct injection V6 or V8 Audi or maybe a GM 60°V6 or V8 and go 10K miles in 6 months with SSO in them and report these types of number's!LOL Copper alone in a most GM V8's would add up to more wear metal then all the metals checked in the above!LOL

What up withthe Lithium does this Honda suffer from depression?LOL

Lol, if it wasn't for the post count JB I'd think you were a troll. Here's the money quote, "18K in 6 months could hardly get much easier on the oil that is all HWY miles."

Yes, every oil can do 18k straight and have the same results. :)

Pablo - Nice run. I see now that your TBNs are most likely high due to lots of driving in short periods of time (i.e. no time for acid formation to break it down).

I think by most standards this oil could've seen 25k without batting an eye, under the same regime and with sufficient filtration capacity.

Which ones are those? I'm not sure if I want password access to your mind.

Perhaps you should post some links.

No bypass. Just Ea0.

Very, very impressive run. TBN and visc. are rock-solid. You probably could have gone 21-22k on this oil, like you did on your Volvo. Why'd you go back to ASM?

It IS a minor blip, but any concern about the uptick in aluminum?

ACTUALLY JB, TSO was the oil that never impressed. SSO HAS been excellent so far and proven to be better than ASL/ATM.

I'd say ASM/SSO are their two best PCMO's. Both are also using the most current, modern additives. The others are using older additive technology. Amsoil usually puts the most modern additives into their SSO oil.

Btw, what is it with you and S3k? It's not their best PCMO anymore. Maybe their best diesel oil, but not for passenger cars.

No concern about the Al at all. Seems to be tracking miles.

Because I have a ton of ASM and only a case of SSO.

They really improved viscosity control with many of their oils. SSO in particular maintains it's viscosity extremely well.

SSO supposedly uses XOM's top of the line PAO as I've said before. There are different quality grades I believe.

Honda UOA = boring

Can't argue with results though.
