Not one for stretching OCI. 8500 miles? Nope. 3500 and no more for me. $30 bucks. But I can understand people that drive a lot of miles for 3500 to be unreasonable.

Blackstone Labs told me I was wasting money changing my Royal Purple at 3K intervals after they tested my used oil, so now I go to 4500 miles between changes.  Having Blackstone test my used oil was well worth the 25 bucks it cost.

I look at the reports more like a watchdog than a reason to stretch my intervals. I average 15-18k miles a year and typically try to change oil every 5-6k miles. It's good to be able to look at data once or twice a year and quantify things like fuel dilution, solids, and water in the system to use as indicators to see if antifreeze or excessive fuel  is starting to enter the system. Also how well the filters are functioning to keep the abrasives at bay.

Latest oil analysis for SHO attached. Mostly city driving but a few long trips. Also attached is latest Jeep one so you can see that Blackstone is helpful when issues arise. Jeep seems to have a head gasket or worse going on. Jane the Jeep is going to go under the knife soon for lots of old part changes.

Yeah the Amsoil is done for.  U use the Amsoil filter?  City driving dumps fuel into the oil, but watch for a trend - injector.

On the jeep:  same oil- castrol hm - the entire time?  Very little antiwear additive.  Seems to be a coolant leak 4 sure.

If tuned:  Take note of the strategy code as you return to stock (including 3 bar MAP to 2 bar MAP) -> take car in & get it serviced -> check strategy code when you get car back -> have tuner update your tune if the strategy code has changed -> reload tune -> ENJOY!

Yea I have been using the amsoil filter. I may go back to motorcraft soon. My amsoil guy here keeps filters on hand for me essentially as his other clients donít use that filter. Iíll keep look out for fuel in oil, at least injectors look easy to swap on this motor.  Unfortunately there will be quite a bit of city driving until jeep is fixed, we put some mileage on the car. F Super Duty doesnít fit so well in Old Town Alexandria.

Yea I have been using the the castrol hm for a while now on the Jeep. I started using it after I noticed issues with the possible coolant. I tried Mobil 1 at one time in Jeep but that was only for a 3,000 mile oil change.

Straight up amsoil in everything now besides Jeep differentials and transfer case.
