Yeah true - a track day is hard use, no way around it. I guess what I meant was that GM warranties these cars for track use, so that's what they're made for. My hours meter is reading something like 150 hours on the engine so far, and 3 hours of that was on track. That's why I say I'm not really doing anything other than what it's intended for.

But yes, I hear you. Compared to typical street driving, track days are another level.

I'd be curious to see the numbers with the Mobil 1 0W-40 dexos2. Too late as I've already used the Valvoline again, but next time for sure I'm going with M1.

Here is my report. It has been the Mobil 1 0W-40 since oil change one. Itís on its second change now.

Here's my 3rd analysis report. 6646 total miles on the car. 2339 miles since the last change. Same use as the other two reports:
  • 1 HPDE track day
  • the rest is mostly urban driving with occasional highway use

The report is pretty consistent year to year. Still higher iron than average. The comment in the previous report suggested the iron content could be due to "hard" use during the track session.

This was my last time with Valvoline MST Synpower dexos2 5W-40, since they lost the dexos2 certification. I used Mobil 1 ESP 0W-40 for this latest change, so I'll have to wait until next year to see if there is any difference in the report.
