Mobil 1 0W/40		8,946 Miles

Blackstone comments:

There's really no bad news to report for this first sample from your S600's V-12. Metals look great
here compared to universal averages, which are based on an oil run just half as long as your sample. Iron is
exceptional considering the longer-than-average oil run, as usually longer runs leave more iron in the oil.
The viscosity was half a shade low, but that wasn't the result of excessive fuel dilution and it's not hurting
anything, so we wouldn't worry about it too much. No water or insolubles were found, and the TBN was solid
at 3.2. Great engine and great report!

Looks like the M1 0W40 held up well. It was run for exactly 1 year. Currently running M1 0W40 with factory (fleece) filter. Factory air filters as well.

Looks good. You could go 10K, but probably want to change the oil on a yearly basis.

Exactly. Factory service minder is set for 10K or one year. I don't like looking at it on every start up, and there could be a warranty issue for exceeding it, so I changed based on time...

What an amazing engine...exceptionally low wear. I think M1 0w40 is just so hard to beat. Thank you for sharing this report!

Excellent.

May I suggest some additional information to round out the report?
The operating conditions (short vs long trips, spirited vs gentle driving, winter driving or not) and the model year.

So this is the so-called nectar of the gods. Wow, really impressive for Mobil.

The car is a 2005, and it's driven principally on long trips....a few moderate trips, once in a while, it's driven to work, but that's 15 miles on mixed highway/city. About half of the mileage was with the previous owner, a friend, who used it much as I did. I generally drive pretty easily, but I can't resist full-throttle acceleration now and then...it's just too tempting.

No real winter/cold weather, and I am very careful to have the engine fully warmed up (15 minutes run time) before using full boost.
