04 cm 870 oil consumption
Hello all. On my most recent oil change I switched to Mystik 15w50 and had to add a gallon of oil at 6k and another gallon at 10k which I have never had to top off nowhere near as much.Is it the new oil or something else?

Mystic s the 'Citgo'/south american competitor for Rotalla(shell), and Delo(chevron), and Delvac(Mobile) brands of oils.

If you change brands of oil then the rings will take time to re-seat. This is why I tell people not to change oil brands too often. Some oils also have less "sticktion" modifiers in them, allowing for more oil consumption.

All brands of oils have things different about them.. otherwise they would get sued into oblivion for copying additives form other brands of oils patents.

I made the mistake of changing out oil brands the last few times based on what my local Wally World had in stock and it seems like they can’t even keep the SuperTech in stock.Oil pressure has been great with the 15w50.Should I stick to the Mystik and hopefully the consumption goes down or is there a particular brand that you recommended that I should switch to instead? Thanks.

only some regular oil sampling with an actual lab will tell you if the oil is doing its proper job. Iron levels in particular, will usually tell you if overall, if it is as good as something else.

If I start running up to the frozen north will I have issues with the 50 weight?
