    07 Yukon Denali w/6.2L w/ 180+k mi; 6.3k miles on Amsoil ASM 0w-20

    Jetman I think you stumbled into the right Oil for your Denali. Your wear numbers look good, and you've got plenty of TBN left. I like your incremental approach Good Luck

    2018 Bmw X1 s28i, 32,805 miles, 5.4k miles OCI Motul Xcess Gen 2 5w40 LL01

    Thanks for the report. It's great to see you trying different weights of Oil. This report is another example of how hard these Turbos are on Oil. Lots of TBN left, but the Oil sheared out of Grade

    2021 F-150 2.7L EB - M1 5W-30 - 10,040km

    SupraSteve Since you're not looking for extended drain intervals and are content with 10k kilometer uoa's, I would switch to some different brands of synthetic. These Ecoboost motors are known for shearing Oil out of Grade. Your 2.7L EB was no exception. I'd like to see what Amsoil SS, High...

    Michelin Defender LTX/MS after 40,000 miles

    I've sold takeoffs with 75k on (4) different occasions for $275-$325 in (3) different states on Craigslist. The tires normally have a little <6/32nds of tread depth. Over time I've determined that this is the "sweet spot" for selling used Michelin's. I currently have 342k miles on my current...

    My Quest For The Best Oil on the Planet

    Navi I'm currently Testing a 2016 Ford F-150 3.5L Ecoboost for 1 of my Kids. I did a 5k UOA back in February. I felt the oil had a lot left to offer. I should have a 10k UOA in October. If all goes well, I'll step up to a 12.5k UOA

I purchased these tires 16 months ago, and they have 40,300 miles on them The tread depth is 9/32nds of an inch. When New, they start at 12/32nds of an...

    21 F-150 Ecoboost towing oil grade

    Great Question Why not keep running the Valvoline Advanced 5w-30 for another 16-18 hours of towing. Then do a UOA, and post the results

    Air filter minder

    I think these Filter Minders are very useful, I've been running 1 on my 2011 Expedition for 6+ yrs. I ran an Air Filter for 117k miles before it needed to be changed. I've seen the Wix and Donaldson filter minders, but they were for Diesel trucks with a 25 lb gauge. The filter minders for a gas...

    oil change fall or spring?

    stangguy Since you do <5,000 miles per year I would change the Oil whatever time of the yr makes you the most comfortable, then change the Oil every 4-5 yrs with a good quality Synthetic Oil and a good quality filter
