I wouldn't say that T6 is just as good it's hard to beat the best of the best even if it's twice the price. Amsoil dominates in every category, become a preferred member and get it at cost, done deal just as cheap as everything else. Don't be stupid and try to save 30 bucks on a $40,000 vehicle. And if you really want to double the life of your motor get the oil bypass unit from insane diesel or Amsoil.

So just received my oil analysis from my last oil change. I changed oil a little early because I wanted to time it with the AEM flash at the dealer and my subsequent GDE tune install. Same day as oil change.
Here are the results. At least there is no antifreeze!
Have about 45000 on the truck right now.

Here are results from the first sample I've had analyzed. The truck has run 93,000 miles being GDE tuned since 40k, and now for the last 15k miles I add 1 oz of HotShots EDT per tank of fuel. This sample was about 650 miles since last regen (72% soot loaded if I recall). Rotella T6 oil (since a few months before FCA made the official switch from the Euro oil) and various filters, as long as pleats look good and o-ring is in right spot. Oil changes always between 9,000 and 10,000 miles. Fuel filter every other, or every third oil change.

Think it will last another 100k miles without engine problems? I am 7,000 miles from betting it does... Oil Analysis 3-20-2020.jpg

Ordered 2 sample containers from Blackstone labs plus the vacuum pump from Blackstone also. I had an oil change done about 1000 miles ago and will be sending the first sample in this week. I will send the 2nd sample in just before I have my oil changed. That should be a good baseline for future data.
Black stone? As in the guys that produce pro hormones? No shit....

Brady,
That is super encouraging. I am very curious to see how my first oil analysis with the GDE tune looks when I change my oil this summer. I am expecting something similar! If these kinds of OA's don't encourage people to find a way to tune I am not sure what will.

It was great to see no coolant in the oil as I've had to add about 1/2 gallon over the 93,000+ miles to keep it at the cold level mark. That is a small amount I know, but it's had to been going somewhere....

I think I may continue oil analysis from Blackstone from here on out, if for nothing else but the comic relief in the comments box haha.

I have done OA on the last 4 or 5 changes and the last one could have been a little better, Curious to see the next after 7500 miles with the GDE tune

Just received my oil analysis back. Everything looks pretty good. I have 15,000 miles on the oil. 64,000 miles on a 2015 eco-diesel. I use Amsoil 5W 40 signature series, Insane diesels bypass filter open (very impressed with insane diesel) and Fully deleted. I will replace the filters tonight and go another 15,000 miles on the oil.
I've been running Amsoil for over 21 years. I had a 2012 Toyota Tacoma with Amsoil bypass filter and I got 80,000 miles out of the oil before they recommended to replace it. I did oil analysis every 20,000 miles on it. The oil will still good at that point but it had access fuel dilution in it for some reason. I get a kick out of people spending $65,000 on a truck and they cheap out on oil and filters LOL.
