^^ Make sure you guys also post these in the Blackstone thread which is stickied so they dont get lost and drop down to page 5!
Its shearing a little, but no where near what the Ester did. The virgin SUS @212 viscosity of the Nissan Ester oil I think was around 60 and mine sheared down to 53 after 4k miles, and I saw numerous others in that range.
The VOA I saw on the Ultra started at 57.5 and sheared down to 54.8 and the Platinum was 57.4 to start and the OP's sheared down to 55.2, both after 5k miles.
I'd still put in either Pennzoil product over the Nissan Ester for longer OCIs.
I agree with the Blackistone copy and paste though.
You guys could both be on "schedule 2" and change it at 7500 miles with the Pennzoil.
When I hit 20,000 miles I hope my UOA's look that clean!
