I picked up .3 volts and a little bit of speed after an oil change and the old oil only had 2k miles on it. Weather conditions were worse when I went faster too.

I've been told most oils break down after about 1000 miles. Ive had trucks go out to 10k without too much breakdown, but they were completely stock work trucks.

How many miles on the oil? 6.7's are not that hard on oil and Delo isn't the worst thing you can buy, and I hate Chevron....so I wouldn't tell you any lies there.

If you are loosing mpg's we should run analysis on your oil. You might be getting high fuel dilution in there.
