Was meaning this type of bench test

Basically when over the road tests get debated here folks say not enough data acquisition control … or consistent like for like testing.
Then a bench test tear down comes up and we hear ”it’s not real world”
As you know oil companies do both along with extensive lab testing.

It's just loyal brand huggers who can't fathom their favorite lable is not the "best"who retort every test.

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

Dunno...I’m a Mobil 1 user and I honestly feel their marketing tear downs are totally and completely useless as are their taxi tests. I still feel they make great oil...

Like I said earlier...give me a 10 year test in a short tripped car with low oil and a bad egr...heck let’s make it a Chrysler and really make it interesting! Maybe a college girls car she got from her 3k per year great aunt
