    Finally got my Blackstone results back! 194k on the clock when changed. Sent the sample off in late july. I'm guessing the usps horse died because it didnt make to their lab till last week. Anyway, the dipstick was at the halfway mark when I drained, checked it just now and it's still at the half mark, so I probably need to start doing 8.5 qt oil changes instead of 8 qts.

    Now on to the results! 9k miles on oil, I usually shoot for 10k intervals but it wasnt possible this time. My engine is a flex fuel as well (I know the manual states 5k intervals before anyone says it)

    I'm really happy with the results, and even happier with the Schaeffers. Their products have always been top notch for me. I run it front to back in my truck except for the transfer case.

    Cool. Yes, thanks for sharing.

    I've never heard of/seen that brand of oil though, is it regional?

    They're the oldest oil company in America, started making wagon wheel grease in 1839, and they've been family owned since. I believe they were the first to put moly in their oil too, but could be wrong about that. They dont spend money on advertising, just word of mouth. They mainly target industrial/agricultural/big rig market. But make plenty of products for home use. You gotta buy their stuff by the case most of the time. And you have to get it through an Oil Rep to get a good price. I get my diesel oil from my rep for 25/gal cause he has it on hand and I dont gotta buy a case of it, and my 0w20 from an oil supply warehouse. I think its around $100 for a case of 12 qts. They make excellent products and I highly highly highly recommend them! I run their products in everything I own. They're also famous for their million mile engine tear downs, it's worth a google.
