Dad sent me a picture when he replaced the valve cover gasket on their Focus. Has usually gotten Chevron supreme most of it's life.

Like the members stated... Looks great indeed. Chevron Supreme is a very good oil.

I recently had a friend replace the VCG on the 2006 Focus ZXW (wagon) that I bought with 106K after noticing some oil in the spark plug hole on cylinder 4. It wasn't quite that clean but close enough to make me think that the PO did regular OCIs. Mine had slightly more varnish but still looked great.

Those Duratec (Mazda designed) motors are tough little units and can run a long time with just a modicum of care.

Pics like these make me think oil brand doesn't matter anymore. All modern oils are good..

I have a 2006 Hatchback that just turned 200k. I changed the plugs and noticed a little oil in spark plug hole #4 as well. Looked like new oil and there isn't enough to worry about yet, but will keep an eye on it. Looking through the fill hole looks like new. These are definitely good engines. Doesn't move from the full mark with over 10k OCI.
