Experience W/ Schaeffers Oil

All those running Schaeffers oil would you please post your total miles on your truck with Schaeffers and your problems or lack of problems while using it. Curious to see what advantages or disadvantages of running Schaeffers in the 6.0. Thanks to all for responses.

shaffers oil results

After about 6,000 miles useing shaffers I have found that my truck a 03 F350 is really happy. I used to use Redline but got to expensive. I go about 6,000 miles per change and seems to run better when cold. I' happy and so is my truck!!!

I posted this because I see a few running this oil but I haven't seen a whole lot of responses on it good or bad. I know the injectors on the 6.0 are sometimes problematic and they don't like dirty or compromised oil and I was curious to see who may or may not have had problems while using this stuff, including turbo, egr valve, leaks, and used oil analysis results. If you had milage gains or losses that would also be good to know. This appears to be a very good oil from the lack of bad comments I have seen as a result of using this oil, but I thought I would try to open up a can of worms and see what popped out. If your exerience was good or bad I'd like to hear your results or comments.
Thanks

i have nothing but good about the schaeffers oil, a lot of people myself included cant afford the difference over a shelf bought oil, i have used the schaeffers fuel additive as well, very good stuff, i could notice a difference immediately, truck idles smoother and floats on the highway i also got about 1 more mile back on the mileage, white buffalo on this forum is a dealer for schaeffers. myself i use the Mobil delvac brand, Wal-Mart shelf for $10 per gallon.

im still alive and kickin...find me on FB..."StrokerX1"
SOLD my truck, another Diesel within 2011

NOTE: if your on OK and need some PSD work done, i know a dealer tech who does the work....PM me!

I switched over to Schaeffer 5w40 last oil change and installed a big a$$ Gulf Coast bypass filter also. I am coming up on 5k on the oil and will be sending a sample out for analysis next week. I am not planning to change it until the UOA says too. I'll just keep up with the filters and do the UOA every 5k. As of now the oil still looks new.
