Default Re: Used Oil Analysis Thread for Our Engines.

couple of notes about my latest. i don't think my previous amounts of added oils were right. no way i bounced up that much. perhaps it was a quart more for the others(other than the 3900 mile one), example 2.25 instead of 1.25 quarts added

the silicone on the one test was from changing to a gen 1 valve cover

this particular test had 3 1150 mile trips, twice from NC to TX, and once from TX to NC, and a 1300 mile roundtrip to Iowa and back

I burn about a quart about every 1500 miles.

If it ain't broke, fix it some more.
