Another OCI done. I ended this one early with 14% left on the OLM due to lots of dusty and offroad early this year.

Everything's in the clear, and my oil consumption has FINALLY reduced from 1.5 qts to 0.5 qts it really did take 30k for my rings to seat, I guess...

everything today is done for MPG's, low tension rings + thinner oils that prolly delay ring seal. girlfriends new in 13 malibu 2.5 was using 5-20, a qt in a thou, enter 10-30 a qt between yearly changes!!! once the warranty is gone manufactures care less when your engine dies or how much oil it uses, + DI can make it worse with higher compression, think oil spray on the back of your valves!!!

Good report - thanks for posting. Some will argue, but I still think rings break in better/faster on dino or blend. I switch over after 25,000 miles.

Nice report. I'm VWB in mine (with Formula shell on the shelf for the next changes), 15k miles and it hasn't used a drop of oil between changes.

Valvoline white bottle I'm guessing.

Did you notice any change with the aftermarket air filter, silicone still appears to be controlled well with it according to the UOA. Been running the PP as well due to $2.99 a quart after rebate and sale pricing.

Unfortunately I don't have any UOAs from when I was using the OE paper filter. I asked Blackstone on my last UOA, which is probably why they mentioned it again this time, but they said silicone is healthily low and controlled. This is impressive to me, after offroading in Moab this spring I knocked a layer of fine dust off the filter-- which it is clearly keeping out of the engine cheers My two UOAs above are proof that the washable dry media filters don't let anything through as some people continue to believe.

And same here, the mail in rebate on the PP is too good of a deal. I would run pennzoil ultra but all I have off the shelf nearby is platinum, so I just run that.

I did switch to a Fram XG for this next OCI, we will see how it compares to the last two with the Mopar AB.

Another one for the records, previous two oil changes were both PP 5w20 and Mopar AB oil filter, and AFE drop-in dry media air filter. This present analysis is from switching to a full AFE CAI dry media, and a Fram XG filter, and again PP 5w20. Notice how there's no increase in filterable particles or dirt in the oil, and how my numbers are lower than the universal averages or comparable.... OLM was at 9%. I've given up on my oil consumption and have decided 1qt of consumption is normal at 7k miles on my engine. Blackstone doesn't seem worried.
