Yeah, I'm kind of surprised too. That's the first time I've used Amazon Basics oil. The previous ones were all lower, and they were (in order) Valvoline Synthetic, Mobil 1 Extended Performance, and Mobile 1 Advanced Fuel Economy.I'm really surprised at the viscosity of your sample. We've seen Mobil 1 samples come back with lower viscosity after less mileage. I'd be very curious to see a sample of that oil new to see if it actually is a 0w20. One question, do you drive mainly expressway?
No, not mainly expressway driving. I'd say about 60%. My driving wasn't much different than for the previous oil intervals either. Maybe a little more highway due to a few summer trips out of town. My overall MPG has been 35.9, but for the duration of that oil interval it was 36.4, so that's probably also due to a little more highway. But still, nowhere near the EPA's 41mpg highway number for the car.
