Besides, as I have been saying for quite a while, it isn't just the oil breaking down that is a problem, but combustion blowby contamination. Nobody has been able to answer to my satisfaction as to why contamination is not an issue. I understand oil breakdown perfectly, but even oil that stays brand new will get contaminated.
