1 year, 4K miles. Clean and mint off a 2017 R1200GS.
Could have gone 2x the mileage, along with the oil.
Purchased the Mahle version of the filter for all future changes.
I continue to be impressed by this stash of Champion filters I purchased on Rock Auto close out a few years back. Original thread:
Thread of a 10590 I cut open a while back:
The Sienna Hybrid launched in 2020. If someone is rebuilding those engines 2 years later, that should answer all our questions ;)
A Sienna ain't no Camry... weight/load alone will make a difference on fuel dilution.
DI, low starting viscosity, auto stop technology, short trips, 87 octane fuel...
Wowzers, haven't been here in a while and this is the first UOA I've looked at since back.
Too thin. I would put 0w30 in there if it were my van. I am looking at a Sienna hybrid to replace one of our autos.
Yes, sir! That's my winter oil (along with the leftover Rotella laying around)... got about 12 quarts of the 10w40 too :)
Surprised how well that oil performs.... road the 20w50 all the way down to Georgia and back last year in the 650. That wicked slick shifting sure was nice on those roads...
Your bike won't know the difference IMO. That's low miles on good oil, and if the bike is stored in reasonable conditions between rides the oil could go years.
I'm on the other end of the spectrum... pushing oil past the 6k kms Suzuki recommends, usually because I don't want to change my oil...
This is one of the inexpensive filters I purchased from Rock Auto a couple of years ago and has approximately 10k kms running Valvoline (WB) 5w30. I was pleasantly surprised with the shape and integrity of the media after seeing the OEM filter with loads of wavy media after the same OCI. Very...
Finally got around to cutting open the three PF64's that were installed by the dealer during their regular maintenance over the past 1.5 years. All looked in good shape, no tears, no major issues. The new 'ecore' style has a tighter cage arrangement. I certainly doesn't look like media could...
Got my local garage to do a dump and fill on our 2017 van. I made sure they used the Mopar ATF+4 since I'm still under warranty. Wish I would have thought about the drain plug prior.
85k km on the van now.. I think a 50k mile interval makes sense, especially considering we tow with the van.
