I currently have about 70 miles SHY of 6000 miles and plan on pulling a sample - hummm depends on the 4600 mile one I guess (maybe at a forced drain or maybe ???) Just What do I look for to protect me and my BERINGS? When does this ACID suppose to build up? How long do I need to let my OCI run before you are certain I will have build-up! No, Joke, I'm serious... I wanna know... What are the numbers suppose to look like to show you they are being eaten up... please give me an example on the low and high end of the scale?

Their oil will be over 3K, mine at least 10-15K (if that is a normal drain)... so if they are said equal in drain... I guess I can safely go to at least 10K... I'll keep it in there and let you guys know with my reports!
