So when checking my Oil, it smelled more like a gas can than used oil. Being paranoid about all I have been reading about DI motors and shearing, I decided to do a change and send a sample in to Blackstone. It was after it had been warmed up on a 15 mile or so run and the sample was taken half way through the drain. I didn't do a TBN since it only had 2348 miles on the change. I figured there would be plenty left. MI/HR on Oil 2348 MI/HR on Unit 6263 Sample Date 12/11/11
It looks to me like it sheared the oil down to a 20wt after 2300 Miles? Am I reading that right? I typically drive ~ 10 miles each way to work and back daily with some longer trips on the weekends and occasional 300 Mile runs to Michigan. Let me know what you guys think.
