Here is a used oil analysis on my 2011 ram 1500 5.7 hemi.
110k thousand at the start of the sample, 115k thousand when oil was changed.
Really impressed with the wear and the amount of moly left in the sample.
Tbn is a little low for only 5k miles on the oci, but this truck sees a lot of short distance starting and stopping.
Chose 0w-20 because I live in Montana where winters routinely get well below zero for weeks at a time.

Yup, that does look good. With that low a TBN I wouldn't go any longer than a 5k mile OCI, though.

I was thinking the same thing, keep using the same oil at the same oci
