I received my Blackstone results and looking for some opinions on the oil performance. Looking at the Blackstone comments, all seems solid. I find the results satisfactory given my extended oil change interval. I'll hold off on revealing the oil manufacture to minimize any bias/unbias comments for now. Thanks!

Whats the point of posting this? It looks fine but the whole point in posting a UOA is info for people with like engines to get a better idea what works well in them.

Looks good. 8K OCI's looks like a good number to use under your driving conditions.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

5W-30 performs better than a 20-weight in most Subaru engines.

The oil is SuperTech Full Synthetic, with one can of Liqui Moly MOS2 Anti-Friction oil treatment and using a MicroGreen oil filter.

Im very pleased with this oil and never had to add any supplement oil along the way (not bad for these engines). It was my 1st sample taken from this car.
