TBN looks good for almost 10K. Viscosity dropped a little. (starts at 13.7) Fe looks about right for a VW 2006 diesel What was the zinc #? LCM - remember this is not an super extended drain oil - it's a low SAPS formulation. Longest OEM recommendation or may be extended with UOA.

Pablo, and what's even more amazing is the short trips, gravel..dusty roads! 10 to 12 K is excellent and thanks for the information. This formula works for this engine.

It's now a 30-weight. Otherwise, it looks good. TBN seems to be at the typical stabilized level.

Why, Pablo, I'm a bit surprised! It's publication G-2047, "Oil Analyzers Inc. User's guide to Oil Analysis Services." Also, the viscosity info is on the back of the report cards.

Thanks for telling me the source. I don't go by those general numbers, so haven't committed them to memory - I was just thinking you had a VW diesel database or something.

Looks like another Amsoil average of 12K oil. If he dumps the oil at 12K, leaves an Eao oil filter on, and does another 12K run....the product is well worth the money spent.
Amsoil doesn't make and EAO filter for the TDI. (I wish they did). What filter did you use?
