This looks nice. I've thought about using Schaeffer's, and honestly, this is making me want to try it more. A solid 7.5k oil, and the price is really pretty nice. Was Terry happy with the results?

Terry is helping me "tune" on things to make the results even better. I was amazed with his interpretation. For those seeking perfection he is well worth the investment. As for the Schaeffer's it never ceases to impress me. Performance exceeds it's price point. This was one brutal oil interval environmental wise and the Schaeffer's protects well. I'll be posting a report on the 7k 5W-20 from a police cruiser soon, after the lab provides a visc. It was omitted from my initial report. Thanks, REDDOG

I will be looking forward to this report. I assume the police cruiser is a Ford?

With this oil and periodic ARX cleaning, that Rogue should be spotless its whole life. I will also be getting Schaeffer's soon, I can get it locally for 5.00/qt for the 7000 or 6.00/qt for the 9000.

Johnny, Yes, it's a Crown Vic Police Interceptor, 4.6L. I think you'll find it interesting. I'll post it as soon as the lab emails the visc to me.

Very nice. I, too, would like to see that CVPI report.
I wish my local rep had some 5w20, I would start using it in my brother's F150 as I think it would perform well. He only carries 10w30. Maybe he'll order some if I ask?
