The car is a Volvo V40T2 with a 1.6 ecoboost engine.The oil is still in use , I plan on going until I reach the 18k. I drive a lot of highway. I had to put about 0.5 L of oil during the OCI , and it was 0w30 also RL, I did not have any 5w20 more.

That would be 9300K (miles) I believe. Shouldn't be a problem to go to a longer OCI.

Crap load of calcium for a TGDI engine. You ever experience LSPI? Normally wouldn't suggest extended OCI in a TGDI vehicle, but most people don't use Red Line Oil, either. It's my understanding that this Red Line 5W-20 oil contains little to no VM. So, barring oxidation or dilution, there should be nothing, really, to degrade, within this oil. And the add pack certainly seems stout enough to go the distance. Forgot to look before I started this response - did you get a TBN?

The oil should definitely be changed if the OCI was 9,300,000 miles. grin

I have never felt any LSPI . The TBN was 3.7...
