If they marked lead with only a 8 I'm screwed with my 14! Looks good. Good flashpoint. How many total miles on the car? I'd NOT be worried with this report. Get a few more before being concerned. (ie trending) Take care, Bill

You are right. It seemed low to me also. I think its fuel related with all the short trips (just a guess).

the board's preference is to type the results as you have done. It keeps the results "on the board" (since hosting an image requires a 3rd party) and it is 56K friendly.... Report looks good IMHO.

The silicon is a bit high for only 5k miles. That, plus the fuel, will contribute to the slightly higher lead. Give you air filter/intaker a once-over to ensure no leaks, or really dirty filter. But as others have said, nothing reallly to worry about!

I have went over the air filter box and ducting. Can't find any leaks. Where I work there is a 1/4 mile drive way made of limestone. I think the dust from that is part of the silicon. I would like to have the lead lower.
