Blackstones' comments:

Universal averages show typical wear levels for this type of engine after ~4,400 miles on the oil. Copper and iron are on the higher side, and they show wear at steel and brass/bronze parts. But neither is terribly high when you consider the oil change interval, so they're just something to watch as trends develop. The thin viscosity isn't a problem and it wasn't caused
by fuel dilution. Change this oil soon and check back in another 10,000 miles to start wear trends. Overall, this is not a bad first report for your Dakota.

Nice results...personally I wouldn't have gone 10K on an inexpensive dino oil in a hard-working 4-cylinder truck engine, but this definetly turned out fine.

Brad-Penn uses the same add-pack as Valvoline does...


2010 Kia Soul 2U - 2.0L I-4, auto; 149k miles.
Castrol Edge (black bottle) 5W-30; Fram TG 9688.

2009 Pontiac G5 - 2.2 I-4, auto, 121k miles.
Oil/filter TBD

Addyguy, the long drain time was an experiment just to see how the oil performed.

I think these results are pretty good. Vis maybe a bit thin.
