Another clean run on 'old' PU for the fussy Nissan VHR. Correct me, but looks to be shearing to the bottom of a 30w but 7K on it is fine with me. Lead back to normal. - b

Looks good. That one lead reading could have been a glitch in their reading equipment that day. That oil holds up well for your driving style

It's actually dropped about 5% into the 20 grade, but your previous UOA's were in the 30-grade. Did you do any driving that was more aggressive than usual in this OCI?

I had a good report too with the old "Euro" Pennzoil Ultra 5W-30 in my '09 370Z. I had been running Redline but they had a pretty big price increase and I found the old blend Ultra at a reasonable price at Amazon. My engine only has 46K miles on it and I noticed that the oil consumption dropped considerably using the Ultra from what it was burning using the Redline which is interesting. I'm pretty conservative so am doing 5K OCI's with it. I wish they had not discontinued that blend.

Not particularly. 80+% of miles are highway running between 2500-3200 RPM in 6th. I'm not afraid to accelerate quickly, and give it the go pedal whenever I can. grin Summer here was also unusually cool so it didn't see any days over 90F either. - b
