This sample was pulled from my 2014 Dodge Durango with a total of 147,000 miles and 7,000 miles on the oil. The oil is HPL's 5w-20 CK-4 based formula and has been run since Feb 9, 2022, about 7 months. The lab is Wearcheck. There was still some cleaning taking place, as the filter I pulled at 145,000 miles shows:


I just made a 2,000 mile trip over three days on the new filter. I removed the filter and carefully took a peek between the pleats after the trip and saw no carbon. The filter was returned to service and will be changed at 5,000 miles or 150,000 miles total.

The cleaning seems to have subsided and the UOA below looks very good. I will post another UOA in another 5,000 miles.

Cu is a very soft metal. Even at elevated levels would not cause much wear or abrasions in the engine.

The 5w-20 CK-4 isn't listed on HPL's site. Can you provide the link please? Nice report card, btw!

I like the increased "old school" zinc and phosphorus in the new formula. IMO zinc and phosphorus in higher levels, even though some say it is not necessary in a "modern engine" is still better.
