Fixed it for ya...
That darn motor has GOT to be the most hellish on oil that is out there... rapid temp cycles, little capacity, meager filtration, synthetic REQUIRED just to meet service limits... it would be really interesting to see a Blackstone report on it. I would bet, after 10 hours, it would have lots of viscosity breakdown and metal contaminants.
Hey this is cool, I get entertainment at the expense of Farnham's $22.
Works for me...
