A slightly low viscosity was only unusual finding.Flash point was fine so it wasn't caused by fuel dilution If this oil was rated a 5/20 the viscosity would be ok.wear was generally lower here after a shorter run.If any problems exist they don't show up.sample date 5/28/09.4000 on oil.no oil added.

Thanks for cleaning that up, TC, much easier to read this time :) Looks good, do you have the comments from Blackstone? Or are they at the top of your post?

Thanks for reposting. How many miles on vehicle now? The oil sheared by design, as in how it earned the energy conserving seal of approval. It looks like the engine is wearing well though.

Yeah, add numbers seem off - Zinc/Phos not even close to where they should be... Also, you Si is high for the miles. With an '08 it could be residual break in, but I'd still check the air filter/ducting. As for the visc., Edge starts very thin at 9.8 cst; so it hasn't moved much....
