Re: 1st Oil Test M1 ESP 5W30 MY12 JGC 3.0L Diesel

Swampy,
This is brilliant stuff you are posting. Keep it up please. However, what it says to me is that yes, the engine is running beautifully but you are basically throwing away good oil. If the cost doesn't matter then you may want to consider the environment. I would like to see you get a few more k's out of the oil. Once you start getting reports saying that the oil is nearing the point of depletion, then you could say you are pretty well at the optimum engine maintenance/life efficiency point. I'm old engineer from way back and efficiency is what I live for. Sad isn't it?

Hello to all.

Final 2 blackstone reports using Mobil 1 ESP 5W-30. I had repurchased a pack of six oil reports, but as things are going so well, I haven't bothered getting anymore done. I'll continue with the Mobil 1 ESP as there really is no need to change or experiment.

How about trying to extend your oil change periods to see at what point the oil stars going bad. It seems such a waste, let alone the environmental issues, to drain out and discard good oil.
