    What's your Generator and Oil combo?

    Yes, I have considered running the 0w40 sounds like the best of both worlds to me. That new formulation of The Mobil 0w40 has a very high TBN. Maybe after I use up my current stash I may try it.

    UOA from blackstone

    Pete thanks so much. I was surprised to see the viscosity and flash point are a little low. The OLM was at about 50%, 11 month service time. I'm a little surprised the M1-EP did not hold in the specified range. If there is only a trace of fuel dilution why would the viscosity drop? thanks...

I had most of a left over gallon of Rotella T6 and changed using the T6. I came accross some information about engine oil specifically for Natural Gas engines. I found two...
