Harvest King 10W-30 syn, 10k mi. on oil, 2002 Ford Ranger 3.0L V6 w/ 250k mi. #5337735 01/31/20 09:06 PM

10,085 miles and 5 months to the day on Harvest King 10W-30 syn with a Bosch Premium 3422 filter.

2002 Ford Ranger, 3.0L Vulcan V6, right at 250k miles. Holds 5 quarts of oil. Added 0.5 quarts during this OCI.

This was my third run on the same oil/filter combination, last two OCIs were 7.5k and I decided to try 10k. I may step up to 12k but we will see.

Clearly, anything less than 10k in my application is overkill.

My driving was about 70% highway and 30% around town.

This is the Warren-sourced HK syn. Has been discussed extensively here, suffice it to say it is by far the cheapest SN+/D1G2 syn available in my area.

Wow, Nice report, 10k miles and only 13 ppm iron wear, with a retained TBN of 3.3 says there is life left in the oil, and at KV100 = 10.2 it’s still in grade. Those 10W30’s are shear stable and have low Noack volatility, shame it’s not an allowable Dexos1 viscosity grade. Still it’s a full synthetic API SN-Plus oil, so it’s doing everything asked of it very nicely.

Nice little slug of Moly too (50 ppm)

Silicon is a tad high, may want to check your air filter is sealed OK.

Good report

I'm probably most responsible for declaring this Warren Oil (not WPP) based on history (it was pre Citgo) and bottle, however the 5w30 has a Dexos number that doesn't show on the licensing web page. I've contacted the distributor and hopefully will get a definitive answer. If not I'll contact Warren. Glad to see it's holding up so well.

Currently running the same 10W30 in our Frontier. No complaints whatsoever. Unfortunately we don't have a RK near us so I ordered some of the Havoline synthetic 10W30 in the box from Walmart for the next few OCIs. I think I'll load upon the RK 10W30 syn when I get back up to my sister's some time this year since I plan on using it in both the Frontier and Sierra going forward.

The Vulcan is one of the better wearing engines Ford's ever made. They are generally very reliable and can run seemingly forever. The good results here are not unexpected from just about any lube. Low contamination, very low wear, etc. Easily 12k miles is in sight; probably can get to 15k miles.

Your Ranger is likely to rot before it quits running.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Boy on a V6 and with a so called down line oil that impresses me. But I'll bet you wouldn't have felt better or you car wore less with $50 a Jug oil.

But on the upside, you get to post that you use $50 oil..so there's that. 😉

but.....but.....but Great Value Supreme coffee has the same certs as that crafty, schmancy, fancy Columbian Supremo. wink

Harvest King really rocked here. All the fill station additive & base oil faucets were turned on high, when that empty jug made it's way down the conveyor belt line.

True but it doesn't cost three time as much as the other brands.
