Same oil as in my other post with 805 miles, but this sample has 1610 miles.
code:Redline was able to do for 1600 miles what no other oil I have tried can do for half that; hold it's viscocity. Now, I don't really care what the viscocity is as long as it protects. These two sample show higher Aluminum and Copper than most of my reports. I have changed out this oil and I am running fresh Redline, which I will sample at comparable intervals. I want to see if my reports are showing the famous "Redline cleaning", or if wear is really elevated. If wear numbers come down, then I may have found the right oil for me.Oil Redline 10W-40 Miles on oil 1610 Time on Oil ~26 days Iron 12 Chromium 0 Lead 0 Copper 20 Tin 6 Aluminum 21 Nickel 0 Silver 0 Silicon 10 Boron 34 Sodium 12 Magnesium 45 Calcium 3080 Barium 0 Phosphorus 1089 Zinc 1423 Moly 704 Titanium 0 Vanadium 0 Potassium 0 Fuel <1 Water 0 Coolant NEG [email protected] 12.59 TBN 8.04
