0 make up oil. IOLM went off at exactly 365 days. Low mileage is due to storing the car during the peak of winter for three months. Oil is 4 qts. Kendall, 2 qts. Motorcraft since I ran out of Kendall. Both oils are semi-synthetic. That accounts for a drop in Ti and some of the other additive numbers shifting slightly. This change was stretched out to a little over 13 months. Wear metals are pretty much rock bottom. Frankly, nothing to see here, just keeps running like a watch.

Nice steady Fe wear; at or below 2ppm/1k miles. Other metals are low enough to be noise. Contamination low. Nothing but good news here.
Is this a Vulcan? What vehicle?

Note the shift in updated API oils thru the series (Ca down; Mg up), and yet the wear rates go unaffected.

The car is a 2012 Escape. It's interesting how many people at BITOG obsess about additives, NOACK, etc. when the relevant information is how is the engine wearing on whatever oil you're using. I have this car, a 5.0 in an F-150 and a V-10. All three are doing just fine on Kendall semi-synthetics changed by the IOLM.
There would be no benefit to me switching to synthetic oil since my goal is controlling engine wear rates. Everything else is just noise...and marketing.

Would not be possible for me to agree with you more.

WEAR is the thing we want to avoid. It's the output to which all inputs strive. As long as the outputs are good, the inputs can be presumed to be satisfactory. If my engine wore this well on a 50/50 mix of goat milk and dog unrine, I'd just keep on running it, to the chagrin of nearly every BITOGer.

When ExxonMobil comes out with "Mobil 1 Organic" I'm holding you responsible...

That's nice...but is the goats milk / dog urine ratio correct?
