UOA for a sample from May for my 2022 Taos, 8722 miles on both the factory fill oil and the vehicle. I'll be having another oil change in the next couple of weeks with close to 10k miles and will do another UOA.

open range
Typical FF - some elevated Si, Cu and Fe, that's normal.
VW 508 00 obviously. BS doesn't even know it's 0W-20.
However Manganese appears to be more than common
for VW engines. Probably more than 1 % fuel (as it's BS).

Wear metals are actually pretty tame for a FF ran out a good distance. Definitely shows me my 1k mile new car oil changes aren't necessary. But I will continue to do them!
