    Oil change interval

    I'm going to suggest watching the OLM with that prolonged period of idling. It will most certainly adjust for that. In my opinion if you have a intelligent oil life monitor (you do) which takes into account ignition cycle count, oil/coolant temps, mileage, run time etc vs a counter that only...

    Super Tech 5w-30, 6,200 miles, Hyundai 3.3L GDI

    Thanks for this UOA! I have a 2013 Santa Fe XL with the same 3.3L in it. I plan on running a UOA in the spring after the crappy Canadian winter and see how it held up. Current fill is Motul xclean efe 5w-30 with OEM (Mann) filter.

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    I agree. I never considered going linger and I think I'll take it back to 10k and try again. But this car sees way too many miles to do sub 10k oil changes

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    It will be out of warranty in 10k. That and the fact they were already at 15k when they called me for the oil change I figured I may as well test it.

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    I'll check the PCV system when I have it in next. It's approaching 90,000kms now. I'll change the oil as well as the engine air filter and resample at 100,000kms. It's just terribly hard to believe there is much physically wrong with this car as much as a byproduct of being DI. When they're...

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    Cbfr3 is correct. It was 80,124 kms on the car 15,131kms on the OCI.

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    Any advice on where to go from here would be appreciated. I would expect the oil to be in worse condition with that kind of fuel dilution...,

    2006 Pontiac Vibe Motul 8100 xclean efe 5w-30 10,095KMS OCI

    I would! I searched for your analysis but didn't find it. Link? As far as the silicon level I did change the air filter this OCI. I'll have to make sure to have a fresh filter the next OCI I plan to sample.

    Motul 8100 ecolite 0w-20 VOA odd results?

    No on my end it came from (probably the bottom) of a sealed plastic 5L jug after I had filled a car so it should have been mixed up. I assume that would have come from the storage container at the factory....

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    Right? How do you justify dropping the OCI back down with results like that? From what I've read, these engines are known for fuel dilution.

    2006 Pontiac Vibe Motul 8100 xclean efe 5w-30 10,095KMS OCI

    Yeah there are people here that can reprogram back to zero. At that point I'll put a sticker with the date and mileage on the drivers door jamb and keep driving!

    2006 Pontiac Vibe Motul 8100 xclean efe 5w-30 10,095KMS OCI

    Here is the UOA from my Vibe. 240k kms on the clock. 10k OCI. 80% highway runs. Very happy with the results. However, I expected the TBN to hold up a little better. Was shooting for 15k OCI.

    Motul 8100 ecolite 0w-20 VOA odd results?

    I sent out a VOA of Motul 8100 ecolite 0w-20 and it came back with high wear metals and severity 4. I figure from the holding tank. Should I as for a retest?

    2019 Subaru Crosstrek 2.0 GDI Motul ecolite 0w-20 15,131km OCI

    So I got the UOA back from my wifes cousins car I take care of for them. This car sees 95% highway runs as they live in a rural area and put on 1,000-1,200 kms per week. The way I see it, this is the most optimal operation anyone could possibly ask for. Because of the huge mileage, we decided to...

    cars with high mileage

    2006 Pontiac Matrix 1ZZ engine. 10-15k oil changes with Motul xclean efe 5w-30 synthetic and either Toyota long filter or Fram Ultra synthetic filter. Guess it's a baby compared to those of you south of the boarder, but it has 242,000 kms doesn't burn a drop of oil and all I've done to it is...

    Any interest in an RGT 5W-30 UOA at 10k?

    How are you liking it? Do you have the common rattle at start up?

    New Motul Lineup

    Just picked up another 8 jugs of Motul. Among them, was a couple jugs of Xcess gen2 5w-40. Me being me, I have to do a VOA to compare to the original xcess. I'll keep everyone posted.

    1985 Toyota MR2 oil selection and UOA question

    We did replace the tires and the brakes. Unfortunately the pickings are slim for tires of that size.
