I went 5000 hard miles on mobile 1 synth and changed it.. I have never seen such black oil come out of a new car. It even smelt burnt... If you drive the car hard 0w20 will not be 0w20 for very long lol.

Mind you i go 5+ on my corvette and turbo focus with 5w40 and it looks fresh when it comes out.. And I absolutely abuse both my turbo focus and corvette (I mean ABUSE).

I in my life have never seen such black oil come from 5000 miles... it was like a semi truck with 20000 miles on its last change...
