IOLM 4%. This is the new SN+ Lubritech semi synthetic oil as the Ti additive is no longer available in 5W-30. Engine wear is as close to non-existent as I have ever seen. The fuel dilution seems to come with direct injection. This is a great example of the value of oil analysis. If I decided to run a synthetic oil out to 20,000 miles I would be about 3% fuel dilution...no thanks.

No calcium or magnesium level reported?

I presume you're sticking to the IOLM during warranty? The data clearly shows you can consider extending the OCIs, though I'd want a TBN to give some greater comfort in the extensions. And if you're not going to extend, then I'd just ditch the UOAs, because the wear is so low it's moot.

I won't extend the drain because I want to watch the fuel dilution. I get the synthetic oil concept but looking at boron depletion along with fuel dilution extending drain intervals without UOA seems like a bad idea.
At my current annual mileage I'm changing oil once a year. I don't mind getting under it to keep an eye on everything else. With the twist lock drain plug 2 1/2 gallons of oil comes out in about three seconds!

no, I accidentally left them off. I copy the last posting data and then paste to add the new data. Then I spend the next 15 minutes trying to re-align the columns. The code process is easier than doing your own root canal...but only slightly.
Mg on SN oil ranged from 10 to 14. On this SN+ change it was 317. Calcium on SN ranged from 2100 to 2600. On this SN+ change it was 1329.
