You got a point! In general just if anyone saw something I may be missing & of course to just contribute to the collection.

Jimmy: which oil was this? I hope the silicon is just sealers washing out of the '13, otherwise check your air filter.

jeez, your used oil could prolly go straight into a 2-stroke chainsaw...given the way BS estimates fuel%, you likely have >5% in reality. I'd sample mid-OCI with oil analyzers (not BS) and try to do less short trips if poss.

Show me a magical oil that holds viscosity with fuel dilution. There is none. Better here that I started with a 40.

Your post made it sound to me like you thought T6 held it's viscosity.

I see what you're saying though.
Some ACEA A3/B3 and C3 5W30's are holding viscosity with fuel dilution, but probably not in your car with the beating that T6 took.
