    2011 Town and Country....not bad at all.

    Got this due to a screw up at the rental place, i was not at all happy with having to drive a minivan 400 miles back home while the radio shop worked on the plane. However, I have found the van to be surprising, both in drivability and in easy of reconfiguration. My late, unlamented lemon...

    Miata MSM (turbo) Delvac1ESP, 6,625 ...HUH??????

    here is the 6.6k pull of the D1ESP in my Mazda Miata MSM(factory Turbo). this oil is going to be pulled as soon as i get home and i think i have an extra gallon for sale.. the miata is typically a kitten with oil, in my FX the D1ESP thickened out of grade (see <a...

    Lycoming IO360-C1C6, 47hr AeroShell 15w50, 100SMOH

    this is the first run of regular (non-break-in) oil on my IO360-C1C6. as the engine still only has 100 hrs on it, i am not real worried about the silicon (although my A&P is checking the induction system). <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Code:</div><div...

    Infiniti FX45, 15k Delvac1ESP5w40. Mixed results

    here is the 15k pull of the D1ESP in my FX45 (VK45). the oil was changed back to M1 TDT. i currently have a gallon of this left, but am not very impressed with the ESP formulation. am also running it in my Miata MSM for an interval (which may be shortened). <div class="ubbcode-block"><div...

    Delvac1 ESP 5w40 FX45 10,279miles FX45

    here is the latest UOA on my 2006 FX45. while the Delvac1 ESP did a better job of controlling Iron than TDT, i find the rest of the report somewhat disappointing. the TBN is lower than the TDT at a comparable mileage, and this oil is beginning to look a bit tired. this is the new Delvac1 ESP...

    2000 Tundra V8 M1 0w40 144k total 10k on run..yawn

    yet another fantastic toyota V8 uoa. note that this one compares my 2006 run of 5w20 with my current run of 0w40. i am not sure what the difference was, although this run had my ~3700 mile high speed run to CA on it. the rest of the duty was light towing. approximate time in service was a yr...

    Re: M1 Syn ATF 2000 Tundra Transmission 120k

    my next 4 posts will be prime examples of how smart (ok, never been SUCCESSFULLY accused) people can do stupid things. when i bought the Tundra in 2000, i had all of the oils shifted to syn at 3k. then i went along thinking i had it whupped until 100k, got busy and let things go to 120k. while i...

    M1 5k on 04 miata MSM 8.3k total

    before anyone says anything about iron, look at the miles. this was a cherry MSM (factory Turbo) miata that i bought with 3412 miles on it. i had the oil changed before i left the dealer, and changed at 5k to see how the oil was doing with the turbo. this is my 3rd miata, but my first turbo. it...

    M1 TDT 9.8k 06 FX45 91.8k much improvement

    this vehicle has been my worry bead on lubrication. my beloved M1 0w40 just can't seem to tame it, so i went to TDT with much better results. refill was Delvac1, will try taking it out to 15k. <div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Code:</div><div class="ubbcode-body...

    02 Miata, 10043, 125k total, M1 0w20 vs 0w40

    a chance to compare M1 0w40 with 0w20. the latter had 1 quart of makeup and was a qt low when the oil was changed and the sample taken. the 0w40 had a 1/4 qt of makeup. doesn't look like the lighter vis had any effect on wear at all. TBN was very good for an oil that isn't considered a long life...

    M1 0w40 312hrs Honda GX340 Generator

    this generator was fired up during the ice storms in arkansas, and ran continuously for 312 hours. it had gone into storage with some gas left in it, and it required both some choke and some seafoam to run (idle circuit clogged). considering the MFG OCI is 50 hours, i am VERY happy with this...

    adjustment for makeup oil?

    so i am getting ready to do an OA on my miata, which i have changed from M1 0w40 to M1 0w20 for this 10k OCI. my question is, over the course of a 0w40 OCI, i will make up about a quart, and it will be about 1/2 a quart low. on this OCI, i will have made up 2qts, and it will be about a 1/4 qt...

    M1 0w40 06 FX45 yet another odd one 9986 on oil

    the FX45 doesn't seem to like my beloved M1. this is the second OA that shows some sort of bearing issue... i am thinking seriously about either trying Delvac1, or going to a 6k OCI with a good dino. thoughts? Blackstone Labs Oil Filter--------M1 MI/HR-ON-OIL------9986(5000)9437...

    AeroShell 15w50 lycoming IO360-C1C6 AA5A 43HR

    since we don't have too many aircraft, i thought i would post this relatively disappointing OA from my HyperCheetah. engine is 119SMOH. my flight pattern is typically that after advancing the throttle to the stop, i put my foot on it to prevent slippage... blackstone comments For one reason or...

    M1, 0w40 FX45 5000miles ...got the lead out

    my earlier OA on this had way too much lead, was figuring on going to something exotic if this didn't come out ok. fortunately it did. Blackstone Labs Oil Filter--------M1 MI/HR-ON-OIL------(5000)9437 MI/HR-ON-UNIT-----(59641)54641 ALUMINUM----------(3)4 CHROMIUM----------(1)1...
