I found a couple old threads about this company/oil, but nothing terribly informative. It seems Total has a large presence in Europe, not so much here.

This is the oil we use at my shop as our "bulk" fill (5W-20, 5W-30, 10W-30). I normally run our next bump up, Amsoil OE 5W-30.

I got slightly concerned about pushing the Total much past 3,500 miles, but now after looking it seems the Total to be plenty good for 5k-7,500k. I only push the Amsoil to 5k, maybe 5.5 at times.

So oil gods, what say you?

7500 mi should be good.
Would I go beyond ? why not.

SN is not really old enough to be "classic"
SJ is just about old enough.

I have had excellent performance running "plain dino" conventional oil to 5,000+
Syn-blend oils got to 10,000+ miles.
I'll run full synthetic to 15,000 and never bat an eye.
