    12 Nissan Titan high copper

    Hey guys, here’s my latest uoa from Blackstone. I haven’t done anything different on this oil than the other samples. No towing or off-roading or anything else that’s hard on oil. I’m not sure why the copper went so high on this sample. The sample at 45K was Mobil super synthetic 5w30 and the...

    Would you run a fram ultra for two changes?

    Hey guys, I’ve got a 2012 Nissan Titan that’s running Mobil 1 5w30 with a fram ultra filter. I’m due for an oil change. I’ve always changed my oil at every 3,750 miles as it instructs in the manual and the 3 samples I’ve sent to Blackstone have been very low wear. This time I stretched it out to...

    Castrol Edge question

    I bought these two bottles last week at oreilly and when I got home I noticed the bottles were slightly different. One thing in particular is the Chrysler MS 6395 certification is on the 5 quart jug but not the 1 quart container. I also noticed on the 5 quart it says "advanced full synthetic"...

    Oil filter recommendation

    Hey guys, I know the Fram Ultra is one of the major top dog filters around here and I happily run it on my truck, but I'm looking for a filter recommendation for my wife's 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee 3.6 V6. I looked on the Fram website and they don't make an ultra cartridge filter for this vehicle...

    Farewell Crazyoildude !

    Very sad to hear of his passing. I'm a new member and read a lot on here and noticed he's in just about every thread. It'll be weird not seeing him post anymore. My next oil change will be Mobil 1 and a Fram Ultra, his favorite.

    Ummmm well that's scary

    I found my other sample on my work bench a few minutes ago. I remember the sample I sent in being very very dark black which I thought was unusual (because mine is usually a brownish color). The sample I just found in my bench was my usual brown color so I think it's very likely I sent in her...

    Ummmm well that's scary

    I sent in a sample to Blackstone on my truck and this is the report I got back today. I took the sample about 2.5 months ago and just got around to sending it in. I think what happened was I got my sample mixed up with my mother in laws sample that I took about 5 months ago. She has a 2012 Kia...

    Bought a Glock 19

    I feel the 19 is a little to large for me to carry concealed unless you're wearing a jacket so I've been carrying my Ruger Lc9s pro.

    I use 5w30 Mobil 1. Just kidding, I bought some lock lube at home depot that works great. I think its just liquefied graphite.

    How do you log or track your maintenance?

    I actually just use the notepad app on my iPhone to keep up with all the maintenance on my vehicles. Easy and I always have it with me.
