quote:I think it depends if driving style changes , motor gets on boost more often ect but all else equal if it were mine based on the other report I'd take it to 7500 this time of year if the visual and other aspects look good I would not bother with a UOA because of initial moly uptake ect of this new oil type . Next run will be better . I have the 3w-30 in my Wifes 3 quart Kia oil murderer and it's lasting far longer than I'd ever imagined but all engines are different . Some the intervals need be crept up on . You have lotsa experience.....I'd say let it be your guide

would just run your motor on Synergyn only and leave the doping for other oils that need it .

quote:I could probably do 7500k intervals on a good dino with no real problems. I realize I dont need the LC, but I like to use it. Especially since I have seen some good things happen once I started using FP. I will post about that later once I get more data. The reason why I asked the question in the first place is because it seems that Synergyn usually loses its TBN pretty quickly on the first run. I thought maybe LC could help it out with this. I probably wont see this problem anyway since my engine has had syns its whole life and burns almost no oil at 50k. I didnt use any LC this time though, I might add some later if it looks/smells like the oil is deteriorating faster than Im used to (with amsoil). I probably wont get a UOA done on this first interval of Synergyn anyway.
