can someone else verify this information this is a good result test for this engine. As I just dont honestly have a clue what is a "good" return results for all this "ingredients".
I will be happy to post some examples of "good oil analysis" comparisons that are considered normal. Also will post where these different metals come from.
Any good analysis will have 3 sections.....wear metals, contaminants, and additive packages. This is why we like ALS as they break them out well.
Just to be fair though, here is one from Royal Purple on a WRX with 6,500 miles on the change. Blackstone said this was a "good" sample.
Look at the iron, chromium, lead, aluminum and nickel. Remember that we are looking at numbers from 6,500 vs 14,899. This sample from Royal Purple is 2.29 times less mileage with more wear!
With all due respect, you can't get better than zero. If you can reduce the chromium, lead, and nickel, those are the moving wear metals you want to really focus on!
Here is another sample from ALS on a 5.7L Hemi with just over 40k miles using Mobil 1 and 4,900 miles on the sample. Similar year, type, and usage temps and conditions:
Look at the iron, chromium, lead, aluminum, and nickel. Compare it with our 14,899 sample. This is more than 3 times less mileage on the Mobil 1 with much more wear!
Here is an example of where these different ingredients come from:
Now Im still fairly skeptical regarding this whole bnd stuff and custom blend ect. However you said this oil change is 15k miles?
Basically 101 miles less than 15k miles.
what excatly are your intervals...im not worried about mileage but more so in duration of time...My car is strictly a fun car for me so i dont even hit 6k in 6 months unless i just went on vacation with it like that past week, so sometimes i feel like throwing money down the toilet when its only 3k on sythenic and its at 6 months and the book is very clear about changing at mile interval or time interval whichever comes first.
We recommend initially 10k miles. After that, we move up based on actual oil analysis. If we know you are going to use the car for fun and not even get to the miles in 6 months we can blend the oil to incorporate the longer interval time wise before you get to the higher mileages so that you don't have to dump it constantly every 6 months etc. 1 change can last for 2 years if it is under the 10k miles.
Here is a 6.1L Hemi Challenger with 15k miles on one change....12.5w40. Again, you can see the iron, chromium, lead, aluminum and nickel. Similar results show consistency!
I just have one last oil change with mobil 1...and I just might contemplate switching to try this "magic" stuff if the time interval is longer than 6 months.
That is pretty cool. Its hard to imagine that I only need to change oil once every two years...But again and again I keep seeing proof!
Thanks for posting up
