this thread is giving me a lot to think about. I'm on a 5k OCI, started with OEM 5-30, then to 0-30 as 5-30 was discontinued, and my Blackstone basically looks like this all the OEM oil reports posted here.

I'm debating if I want to move on to Molygen 5-40. Can anyone confirm this is the oil being used by people here? https://www.fcpeuro.com/products/5w4...i-moly-lm20232


Anyways, my driving style has changed significantly. Car no longer is DD and when it comes out, it is driven hard, after oil temps are up to 220 of course. I see the shear on the 5-40 and 5-30 Liqui Moly is certainly better, but ultimately, I'm leaning to sticking with OEM 0-30 for the cold flow properties as 0-30 SUS still shears down to a 30 weight oil, albeit barely, but the cST is at 9.5 which is great for a lot of the around the town, short distance low throttle driving.

Report also shows minimum metals, no fuel in oil, plenty of moly.

Any thoughts?
