Same drill 5qt's 0w40 and 1 qt 0w30. Not to much towing this round. One difference is I used way more 93 octane this round. Perhaps this helped with dilution?

UOA will slow down on this truck because my dad drives it now. he puts way less miles than me.

I think it comes from the fuel, but I am not 100% sure on that

Interesting how, with all that fuel dilution in the history, KV100 never dipped into 30-weight land. Impressive really. Tells me Castrol has stable VII chemicals that don't shear away like Mobil1 0w40 is suspected of. Smart going to a slightly thicker oil with that fuel dilution problem; It's hanging in there quite well for you.

They should do what Blackstone does and have "Universal Averages" for that engine so we can see if the iron wear and others are too high or not. I think yours is right where it should be or better though, although one would need to look up a Blackstone UOA to get the fleet averages for that engine.

Did you do anything different with the truck this time around before changingn the oil? Like ran the engine good before e the drain?

Looks good. Very consistent. Castrol 0W-40 is good stuff.

Some people will never admit the fact that excellent UOAs are achievable with the right oil at 10k OCIs in these F150 ecoboosts.

Is that a hack at me or a general comment? The reason I asked my question because Iím working on a theory for the fuel dilution we see in these motors.

The only difference I am sure I did was use more 93 octane. I always take the truck for a drive before I change my oil.

BeerCan's UOAs are prove fuel dilution is a non issue in these F150 ecoboosts yet some can't fathom extending OCI past 5k. You've raised concerns on several ecoboost UOAs in the past and your theory is debunked. 10 OCIs are the norm....join the club!

I always tell people with turbo engines, FORD, Mazda, whatever, stick to Euro oils!

Perhaps running the 93 allowed the ECU to advance timing to optimal performance levels resulting in more efficiency and less dilution ( than the folks that just put 87 in them and short trip and idle them to death).
