It's boring and go at least 15K next time the oil is more than up to it.


make the inside of your engine oil cap white.
don't use.

Good report. Go with M1EP 0w-20 for regular 12,500 miles OCI and save yourself a few bucks from buying AP.

Just curious - you send the results to two different labs?

No, I got results from 2 labs by not sending the oil sample to two labs.

Yes, and I got it on sale so it did fine... I actually got a little more out of it because I didn’t actually change it until 12,251 miles... had some other work to do.

Comparing to the last run:

  • The additional make up oil in the last run (from sampling) seems to have had marginal effect on TBN, Perhaps more on TAN
  • The ALS sample shows a more marked variance in TBN between the prior and current sample.


I’ll be sending another sample with a few hundred more miles to Blackstone for confirmation of particle counts.

I have a feeling the high cost of the AP oil is due to the unique/proprietary and advanced AO's in this oil. It's pretty impressive the AP oil is good for 20k and has a SA of only .8. Same with EP. Good for GDI engines and long drain capable.

Thanks for sharing. It seems as if you could have easily done that run using M1 EP at lower cost, although I think you may have mentioned getting a great deal on this oil somewhere along the way. I'd be willing to try it myself if priced under $30 a jug, but the everyday $28 price on M1 EP still seems to make more sense. I do have one vehicle in the fleet that is a candidate for this oil, so I will keep an eye on the prices.
