4qts of TDT 5W40 + 1qt of M1 5W30. This sample was about 75% stop and go and commuting in traffic. Prior samples I would say was closer to 50%.

I've always been intrigued by this 5w40 and this report may push me from intrigued to user. Nice report.

Inspite of fuel dilution , this CJ4 E7 oil is still serviceable.
Wear rate is good, and OCI could be extended.

Might be a candidate for the best TGDI oil yet due to low Ca and it dilutes/shears slmost into a 30 grade.

Wear rates look pretty good, considering your driving conditions. Blending the TDT and M1 5W-30 doesn't seem to be having a negative impact on wear. I have been thinking of blending TDT as well, but was concerned about possible additive clash.
I was thinking of blending TDT with Mobil 1 EP 0W-20 at roughly 50/50, to get a 30 weight. I would like to use a Mobil diesel 30 weight straight out of the bottle, but no one around here really even carries Mobil Delvac 30 weight oils.
Advance Auto just started carrying Mobil Delvac Elite 10W-30, no one carries Delvac 1 ESP 5W-30 locally. I checked online, one retailer is selling it for 40 dollars a gallon.

What do you think of a TDT/ Mobil 1 EP 0W-20 blend?

I think that should work. From what I've read you can pretty much blend anything if it's for a short OCI.

I'm blending because the TDT only comes in a 4qt bottle. Sump is supposedly 4.75 but I usually need closer to 5. Easier to empty out a 4qt container and a 1qt without having to consolidate partial empty bottles.

The standard M1 5w30 I have on hand for servicing other family vehicles.
