It's the only oil I have used in about 5 years. The only thing I have ran in my LBZ. No problems, no complaints. I have a sample that was taken at 110,000 miles on the truck and 11K on the oil. I will post up the results when they arrive.

I have been running it for about three years or 30,000 miles. No issues, I don't do oil samples because I still change it every 3000 miles. I used to have a hard time getting it. but now my local NAPA has it in the store.

My truck loves it.

I need to pull an Oil Analysis since I do run extended intervals (10K).

I can't find it locally and am trying to get setup so our company can stock it for our diesel trucks and vans as well as some of their other products specific to the industry we serve.

Waiting for the information to come back on the samples is like waiting for the results of a major test at your doctors, nervous and excited all at the same time.
