Loc: Great Lakes
Time in service: 12 months
Miles in service: 11,240

Driving conditions: mix of very short commutes (3-miles one way) with 200-mile hwy trips every couple of weeks.

Oil: Mobil1 0w-40 API SN
Oil filter: Mann (OEM)
Air filter: Mann (OEM)

Make-up oil: none

Sampling technique: Blackstone pump via dipstick tube.




I must say, the TBN retention in this new SN stuff is impressive, as is shear stability.

The previous sample on the above report (10/16/11) was on M1 0w-40 SM, 8800 miles and 1 year as well. That sample had multiple 12-mile commutes, but no extended hwy trips.

That is an awesome engine! M1 0w40 is a really impressive oil as well especially when you factor in the price.

How many qts does this engine take?

Even with the short tripping the oil resisted shear well.
There's a reason why most here consider one of the best oils money can buy. And at 25 a jug down south why even consider anything else.

Thanks for sharing the report Pete! Awesome report (note to other members, I have same engine, good too, but I have light misting leaks at only 45,000 miles. frown I have another version of same V6 with 24,000 miles leaking too).

I love seeing the report because these days the checks I do are with only about 5k miles so it's almost worthless to look at.

Do you take your own oil into the factory service that you did this year, or do you let them use whatever they stock on the years that is their turn?

Every alternate year I take it to the dealer for Service B and just let them use whatever they use.
