I did an oil change in my wife's BMW tonight and it was the end of an era, I put the last of my supply of German Castrol into it frown All I have left now is two 5L jugs of Belgian made Castrol 0w40 and then after that, I will switch the car over to Mobil 1 ESP 5w30, because Canadian Tire no longer carries Castrol 0w40 at all.

I don't really want to run a 5w40 in this car, most of them are too thick compared to what I've been running in this car (either M1 0w40 or Castrol 0w40) Besides, now that ESP 5w30 is sold in 5L jugs up here, and goes on sale frequently, it's reasonably priced and it's an oil I can use in both the BMW and the Corvette (once my supply of the old ESP Formula 5w30 runs out that is)

2002 F150, 200,014 miles on truck, 3,414 mile/13 month interval with 2 qts makeup oil: Off and out: Bosch Distance+ and Magnatec 5w-20 (with 1 qt Mobil 1 EP 0w-20 @ 1,300 miles and 1 qt QSUD 0w-20 @ 2,500 miles, truck was 1/2 qt low when changed). On and in: Mobil 1 M1-210A filter and for oil, 1 qt QSUD 0w-20 and 5 qts PP 0w-20 (figure same viscosity and are both SOPUS products, will be just fine). [Linked Image] Plan on a ~3,000 mile interval again. I do a lot of short tripping, and drive less than 3,000 miles in a year in it. I have debated never doing another oil change on the truck since I use a qt of oil every 1,200-1,500 miles. I have a Fram Ultra on my shelf, maybe next year I will put that one on and just do a 4 year run without changing the oil or filter, just keep adding oil. Also did an ATF drain and fill, hence the MaxLife ATF.
