Yes, I like that Oil - Filter setup also .
BTW, I roughly measured how much oil came out from the factory / dealer and it was around 6 US quarts... (2.0T)
Around 6 qts. with Filter is Not even Close to Respectable Data - other then You Used some Oil ..
Other on Sites have said their 1.5T was down between changes and they had Topped it Off before the Oil Change , again was that 6000 miles Change or 10,000 miles change
No one Knows -Because
1. Good Actuate Information was provided , 2. Log events need to be more Actuate . Oil Amount Used - needs to be Reported in Oz .
I sure If You go to the Dealer - He only puts in 3.5 Qts , but Charges You for 4.5 Qrts You'll be saying something . .:surprise:
I went with the Purolator Pure One PL14610 filter as I've had good luck with Purolator for many years.
I used Pennzoil Platinum , but I'm using 5W-20 full synthetic.
OK reason I'm in here today is to Bring some Data Logging to Our Site - New Motors , New Transmissions We don't know what's Actually going to Happen in 30-40K
I Pulled Oil Filter as the Motor got Breakin Period - during some real Hot Weather .. _ also Noted Oil was down some 12-14 Oz this to Me is a little High Use . . Now
I don't know what the Factory is using . . and these Type of Oils - I Have Not Run on any of My Other Vehicles - those have Different Requirements ..
OK - I do Under stand some Use of Oil during Break-In could be Deemed Normal , but We should all be Tracking it .. and Reporting Here !
Strength in Numbers !
Now I only just started to Scrape the Surface of these **Oils - and Bam ** - I run into this Stuff called : Titanium Dioxide - Oil Additive ?
So Far I have Found it in Paint , Food , Vitamins , and some Prescription Drugs ?_?_?_? This Pegged My What Meter !
First Thing that Hits You hard about this is It's Listed as a ( Cancers Agent )
, OK Dig a little more and Chemical Co Reps are Saying :
**Whether it be Zinc, Molybdenum, TiO2, or Tungsten, any metallic or organo-metallic additive has to be processed
so that it is 1) soluble in the lubricant, 2) that it disperses. **
OK , then I found Heat Annelise of this Additive Agent works after it gets Warmed Up , But is Shot all to **** at 266 Degree's F or 130 C . . , so now I wonder Why the H
is stuff even in Mobile Oil ? and I Guess some Version of Castrol Oil ? ( Is this Why some are Burning Off Oil Between Changes ) If so then
Were back to the - Engine Bay Temps and Oil Passing through the Turbo Bearing Area are Too Hot for some Additives ! ( Burning this Off ) ?
If any Oil is Broken down due to Hot Engine Bays and Turbo Bearing Temps of 286-288 Degrees ( These Temps I have Documented ) -
Like I recorded - then I'm NOT Running any Oil with TiO2 stuff in the Oil . .
Unless someone tell Me what this Additive is Suppose to be Doing ? ( Anybody )
