    I just received my first oil analysis on my 2018 ProCharged GT. The car has almost 9,500 miles on the odometer with about 8,000 running the Procharger. This sample was taken with approximately 5,500 miles on the oil and appears to be healthy and happy! Oil is M1 5w30 with a pint of Schaeffers Moly EP additive (eliminated Coyote tick 5,500 miles ago).

    Looks good! I just put in M1 5w30 myself. Curious as to why, with the moly additive, MO only shows 76?

    That's great news! I'm thinking of going with a Procharger over the winter months while my car is resting in the garage. I'm not familiar with Schaeffers, but I swear by additives...I've used Liquid Moly Ceratec on my last 2 oil changes in my '18 GT along with T6 Rotella 5W40 full synthetic. I run E85 and everyone knows that the blowby from corn fuel is a bit more toxic than with gasoline, so I use the diesel grade oil because it has better additives that help keep the oil lasting longer. And the step up in the viscosity range really does seem to quiet these 3rd gen coyotes down a bit.

    I actually heard about Schaeffers from a guy I know that runs a large fleet of diesel trucks and tractors. He swears by the stuff so I gave it a shot. Just as some background my car had horrible coyote tick beginning at 500 miles after the first oil change (also M1 5w30). He suggested I try it so I went ahead and added a pint and it eliminated it almost immediately. Not sure what's in the stuff but it sure does work and doesn't make the oil look like a milkshake like some of the other additives.
