I have done 40.000 K,s on this oil in my 2007 Jeep grand Cherokee CRD The odometer is at 240,000
I have added a provent 200 and had a green diesel flash tune added mainly to turn of the EGR did use a bit of oil probably 3 litres in that 40,000 had 3 changes in that distance as well
I change the oil and filter every 15,000 k,s the book recommend every 20,000 I personally feel that's a bit long dropped it to 15,000 k,s about due for another change might try a 10w40 this time no need for thin oil
Where I live the coldest it gets is 10 degrees Celsius and that would be at 3 o'clock in the morning by the time I wake up and get driving its already 18 to 20 degrees so personally don't think the lighter viscosity for cold starts is necessary after posting on the forum before asking this question

I saw a couple people were interested in a VOA. I posted it in another thread but figured I would post it here too.

I have been using the Amsoil 5W-40 full saps European in my
'14 SRT jeep Grand Cherokee and have been quite happy with it.
First few oil changes I used the SRT recommended Penzoil Ultra
0W-40. As I have an oil catch can to protect the throttle
body from gunking up from recycling sump gases I noticed when
emptying the oil catch can that it contained a yellow paste, butter
like rather than oil. Since I have gone to the Amsoil this has
gone back to normal oil in the catch can. I have not done a UA
as the car has less then 10k but next change I will do a UA
and see how it holds up. I change twice a year with a Amsoil
filter. The engine seems quite happy with this oil and is
quite quiet when I'm not into it's 470hp. (G) If there are any
issues with the UA I will report it here.

With the rather decent sump size it is surprising the PU 0w-40 did not hold that well (as per your oil catch can observations). Do you feel that the 0w-40 was cooking out the yellow paste while this 5w-40 from Amsoil is a more robust formulation, specifically because it is a 5w-40 full saps motor oil?
And what were your oil drain intervals with the Penzoil Ultra?
