1) there's nothing credible to learn from this "test" 2) towing 4500 lbs at 3k rpm isn't hard on an engine at all. The load is well within the towing limits of the vehicle, and very high rpm (high reciprocating stresses) or very low rpm (low film boundary and lugging engine) are issues but not 3k rpm. IMO this thread has little value.

Wait, you said "when it went into freezer" but you meant out of the freezer? That is why I asked you the question I did. So you're saying the Valvoline and the Supertech were "yellowish and waxy" at what temperature?
