Hey.. haven't posted a lot lately, been busy, but did have time to send in my 10month run (2944 miles) of 5w30 Magnatec to Blackstone. This is for my 06 Scion TC with the 2az-fe engine. No burning oil, or leaks. The oil filter used is a Toyota YZZF1. I really didn't plan on letting the oil go this long, usually it's every 6 months that I change the oil but just got busy. Lots of stop/go traffic with a couple of longer highway trips thrown in. It was interesting to see the Iron up to 7 but well below the average of 11.
Also noticed not a lot of fuel dilution (yes I know Blackstone eye-balls it), but the flashpoint (395)and viscosity looks decent (9.67cst), I did a VOA on Magnatec, viscosity for 5w30 is 10.25csT, flashpoint 425 deg F, tbn 7.1. I don't think this looks that bad..
So.. everyone's thoughts?
