This question is aimed I guess at BOBITOG but I think many of you are well informed so please feel free to respond. Am currently using M1 10w-30 in my Ranger and Camry, 2002 2.4 liter. I am using 5000 mile oil changes and need to know if the above oil will handle the same interval. Just ordered a case of 7000 15w-40 so thought I might just go with one manufacturer if possible. Thanks in advance Greg harrison

Schaeffer Supreme can easily handle 5k intervals, we have quite a few UOAs on here that are at this mileage or higher and the oil is still in great shape. I ran 10w30 Schaeffer Supreme to a 5000 mile interval myself too, and it definitely could've gone further. [ September 16, 2003, 09:56 AM: Message edited by: Patman ]

Thanks for the reply Patman, We seem to be sort of programmed that if it isn't group 4 or better base oils that it is inferior quality. I learn something every day . THanks Greg Harrison

Do a search on the UOA board for my 6000 & 9300 mile analyses on BobZoil(Schaeffer Supreme 7000 10w30 SL). Easiest- search member #2 for the full distance on UOA only. Schaeffer's good stuff, I bet it'll do well in your vehicle. BTW, I now have ~14,300 miles on my present fill of BobZoil & Lube Control. I plan to drain & analyze at ~15K, & will post the results on BITOG's UOA board. Should be ~5 weeks.

I just changed from 5W-30 Schaeffer's Moly Pure Syn to the Supreme 10W-30. I plan on going 6K miles and compare to the 6K of the Moly Pure. I have a previous report for Moly Pure and one of TriSyn- all for the same vehicle. I plan on going 2 changes with the Supreme 10W-30. Based on what this oil does-I may move more toward the blend. And for me that's quite a statement. [Smile]
