    2017 6.7 Powerstroke UOA

    I think I am going to drop back to around 300 hours. Which will take me to 10000 miles based on my current driving habits. That will most likely when the oil life monitor triggers. I’ll be watching for your uoa of t6. Curious to see how you make out with it.

    2017 6.7 Powerstroke UOA

    New UOA just in. 425 Hours on oil sample. 12550 Miles. Not too confident in the TBN on this. Seems high for 425 hours on T6 5w40 based on the last uoa being the same hours, but I could be wrong. Makes me question the accuracy of some other numbers on this report. The viscosity appears to be...

    Any chance you could ask the lab if they have any sample left to double check the fuel? May possibly be an error? Also, did you have a regen cycle run preceding the oil sampling? I have made it a habit to not pull a sample near an active regen, thinking the oil may have higher fuel...

    Amalgamated tdr-fl

    In a gasoline engine, high concentrations of mmt with create orange soot that will trash your cat and sensors similar to what lead will do. I have seen it first hand. The epa note above states at that specific concentration mmt is not harmful to emissions equipment. I reached out to...

    Amalgamated tdr-fl

    I agree with you. It helps with combustion, and binds to the soot to make it more easily combusted, however was known to clog catalytic converters in gasoline engines. Now I know we are dealing with diesel and dpf system. Curious at what rate it would accumulate in the dpf, since the dpf is a...

    Curious with maganese oxide residue. Would I be trading soot levels for maganese oxide residue build up in the pdf. http://www.meca.org/galleries/files/Schindler.pdf http://www.meca.org/galleries/files/Sierra_Research_Auto_Industry_MMT_Report_August_2008.pdf I had a buddy that was addicted...

    Do you think pulling an oil sample right after a long regen would lead to elevated fuel dilution in the sample?

    Amalgamated tdr-fl

    I have read some good things about this. My interest is to lower soot levels from combustion to extend life of dpf. Not necessarily add in the regen process. One ingredient is maganese. Any pitfalls from having manganese in the fuel system and it getting into the engine oil...

    2017 6.7 Powerstroke UOA

    Honestly I believe the high iron is because I have been running it out to 425 hours. Driving is mixed. I do about 1/2 city and half highway. And trying to establish a baseline. I am thinking the normal is more along the lines of 300-350 hours. I agree the iron is higher than typical for my...

    No egr work done to the vehicle and I run some antigel if it gets down in the low teens.

    2017 6.7 Powerstroke UOA

    Any thoughts on the new report soot level? Seems a bit high based on my last soot level with similar usage. Just glad the report arrived in my inbox. It was presumably misplaced in the mail for months.

    Thanks for the reports. Do you have any ideas on hours of use per oil change

    2017 6.7 Powerstroke UOA

    Possibly, however the schaeffers 132 moly ep is like molasses. Only thing I’m curious about is why the uptick in soot? My last 2 runs were 425 hours. First was finished at 10000 miles. Second run was 425 hours, 12,500 miles.

    12500 miles. 425 hours. Schaeffers 132 added here so that should account for the higher visc

    Yz250f-Maxima 20w50 pro plus vs Mobil 1 20w50 vtwin

    i picked up a 5 gallons pail of the maxima. Ended up under 7 dollars a quart in bulk. Little more expensive then say rotella, but I’ll probably run it to 7 to 8 hours per change. It’ll make up the price difference. Dirt bike engine oil off the check list for a while.
