    It meets or exceeds API SP GM Dexos 1(Gen 2) plus Chrysler MS-6395. Also, they can't void my warranty for using it. I am just looking to make the oil on the upper end of the 20 weight.

    It calls for 0w20. Just looking for the higher end of the 20 weight.

    Need help

    For all you oil experts and amateur oil blenders I need some help. If I took 4.5 qts of Amsoil Signature Series 0w20 and 1 qt of Signature Series 0w30 what would the viscosity numbers be? Or if I used 1qt of Signature Series 0w40 instead. Looking for a more robust 0w20 weight for summer driving...

    0W20 Oil Choice Considerations ?

    Amsoil Signature Series 0w20, Royal Purple 0w20, Pennzoil Ultra Platinum 0w20 then Pennzoil Platinum 0w20. With that being said probably overkill for the tried and true Toyota 1.8L. It is not overly hard on oil and is a workhorse of an engine. As long as you change it on time you almost can't go...

    Valvoline Extended Performance 0W20 VOA

    Looks like a decent oil. I would give it a try. I usually stay within 5k 7.5K oil change intervals. My Jeep is still under warranty.

    Mixing oils - what viscosity do you get?

    So for you mixing experts. How much of an impact would and what kind of numbers would I have mixing 4.5 quarts of Amsoil Signature Series 0W 20 and 1 quart of Signature Series 0W30? Or would I see more benefit doing 3.5 qts of the 0w20 and 2qts of 0w30? Just looking for a more robust oil than...

    Rislone Nano Prime VOA

    I was limited to NAPA or Blackstone and neither check for tungsten. I am curious about the tungsten content.

    Rislone Nano Prime VOA

    I bought a bottle off of Amazon. I shook the bottle throughly and sent it off in a pre-paid NAPA oil analysis kit. It has crazy nickel numbers. They unfortunately do not test for tungsten, maybe that's why the nickel content is so highly? I did not put it in my engine. Just seen it and wanted to...

    Liqui Moly 5w-30, 5,011 miles, '18 Audi A4

    So, if you switch to an oil like Redline or Amsoil that have higher ester content, it can show higher iron on your initial oil analysis? Can you explain and will it improve by the next oil change and analysis? I ran Amsoil Signature Series my last oil change and my oil analysis showed slightly...

    Iron increase?

    I did not use the same oil for both OCI. One was Pennzoil Ultra Platinum and the other was Amsoil Signature Series. The engine has 14,823 miles on it

    Iron increase?

    I have a 2020 Jeep Wrangler JLU 3.6 v6. I got my latest oil analysis back and iron has went from 16ppm to 28 ppm. Both intervals were around 5k with just over 200 miles difference. The other variables is late summer/Fall on the 16ppm and all winter for the 28 ppm sample and approximately 200...

    Amsoil SS 5w30

    Both the current product lines of XL and Signature Series both have 100% Synthetic on the label

    Amsoil SS 5w30

    Pablo, I know that Signature Series is Amsoil premium product. I have a question about the XL line. All three product lines state 100% synthetic. Does that mean they all share a 100% synthetic base stock and each tier of product has a better or more robust additive pack? I am switching over to...

    VOA - Kendall GT-1 Max SN+ 0W-20

    Thanks for the getting the analysis done and posting it! I have used Kendall in the past. Just about any new oil today is a good choice for any OEM oil change interval. THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO REMEMBER IS YOU CAN HAVE THE BEST MOTOR OIL ON EARTH BUT IT IS ONLY AS GOOD AS THE FILTER YOU USE...
