    It actually did start dropping much faster in the past month, when before it was slow and steady.

    My bad. 2.0 engine About 8k miles a year, but two trips of about 1k miles each, so 2k highway and 6k city (about 20 miles on the days I do drive, which is usually once or twice a week. I hope that helps.

    Oil life monitor and percentages

    I'm using semi synthetic oil (Pennzoil) in my '17 Ford Edge. It's got 41k miles and the percentage is 14%. Will the oil be in worse condition if I wait until it's at 0%? I know oil wears down as the miles add up, but I just want to make sure that if I go by the monitor, and wait until 0%, I'll...

    Using dino oil when semi-synthetic is required.

    It does say that on the manual. I can't post the text though, sorry, but it is in the manual. I have a 2017 Edge 4 cylinder.

    Using dino oil when semi-synthetic is required.

    I was just wondering what happens to an engine that the manufacture requires semi-synthetic oil, but regular oil is added by accident, say at the oil change place. It didn't happen, but I was just wondering how it would affect the engine.

    Frame style wipers better than beam style?

    I've had my '17 Ford Edge for 14 months now and I have yet have to replace the wipers. They come with the ugly frame style blades, but they've lasted at least twice as long as the most expensive beam style ones. Did I get lucky and get fluke blades that still work as well as when I got the...

    How long until new engine turns oil black?

    That's interesting about same company but different engines having different results. I didn't have any smell of gas, and hopefully won't have any when I change the oil.

    How long until new engine turns oil black?

    As you guys know I recently bought a new Ford Edge (2.0 eco-boost)and I finally have almost 1500 miles on it but the oil looks the same as it did when I bought it with a little over 400 miles.There's also none of the shiny metal shavings that I can see in the oil. So I'm wondering if this is...

    Have different oil brands always been the same?

    In that I mean if they were meeting API/ILSAC they were offering what all engines needed from them? I recall years ago, many probably, when it seemed like there was night and day difference between oil brands. Where Pennzoil was a step up from QUaker Satte, and both were infinitely better than...

    Does it matter where the oil comes from?

    I was reading that some oil companies get their oil from Asia, or other places outside of the US. Does it matter in terms of quality, or meeting ILSAC or API specs? Is American oil that company X uses going to be a better quality than Asian oil that company B uses? And does anyone know if...

    Anyone do UOAs with different oils

    Just wondering is anyone has done UOAs of different oils on the same vehicle. And if so, were the results significantly different? I think it would be interesting to see what a Super Tech and Pennzoil UOAs look like in the same vehicle, if for anything but to see how the engine treats each oil.

    Why are my Crossovers tires UHP & not "SUV" tires

    I just found that my tires on my Ford Edge are UHP (Hankook Noble S2)tires and not the SUV/Crossover tires. Anyone know why they wouldn't put SUV tires on this vehicle?

    How are car/store brands so cheap yet still...

    Able to meet ILSAC and API requirements/specs, while name brands like Pennzoil and Valvoline meet the same specs, yet cost as much as double in some instances. I've seen a bottle of pennzoil synthetic cost double of supertech yet they both meet API and ILSAC specs. Are the big brand's base oils...
