Probably going to go 2k miles then send in a sample for an oil analysis and go from there then switch over to valvoline maxllife hm 10w40 for a couple of oil changes. Will post my findings here.
If you're referring to this VOA , I believe that it may be incorrect. Note the info that was posted by motorguy from Wal-Mart's oil supplier, WPP. I've seen Blackstone results on Rotella T6 where ZDDP was lower than a Resource Conserving 5W-30. Not! I didn't look up any Valvoline uoa's to see if the additive packs where comparable like some there were saying.

Also, the viscosity should be robust enough to handle some fuel dilution.
