This opens the Pandora’s Box for clever marketers.
I don't think 540Rat is a "clever marketer". And he has stated that he doesn't use the one armed bandit for his testing.

When I read the link it reminded me of a time when Royal Purple was using the one armed bandit to promote their products on some car related TV programming. It was probably the old Horsepower TV.

None of this matters if you change the oil and filter often enough.
It is when you try and stretch the oil change to save money or time it hurts.

The problem is 540 Rat won't say what he uses.

All the oils today are high quality & have to meet stringent requirements. IMHO, there are no 'bad' oils, just some that are better than others.

if anybody has too much time on their hands and not enough to do, they can search back through Mr Rats old posts and find the one where he describes his "testing" machine. IIRC, and it's always possible I don't, it sounds exactly like the one armed bandit described in that linked story.

Not surprising at all.

With 0W oils you change when you see a ET drop off and that's usually 3 1/4 mile passes. On larger engine (822 Hemi MMPS deal) it's every other 1/4 mle pass.

Wow, that's not a lot of time on the oil.

Curious as what your bearing clearances are.

And what you attribute the change in the oils performance to.
