Looks pretty good.

What oil filter did you use and what vehicles is this again? I forgot...

How much does this oil go for?

If I am reading it right,this engine is not even close to being broke in yet. That's pretty good for a new engine. It can only get better from here too.

Salesrep can give ya exact numbers, but it retails for between $6 and $7 a quart (case of 12). I suspect the gallons are a tad cheaper.

At first I wanted to say 'Al is too high'.

Then I saw total miles - pretty darn good run for 10k on a 17k motor!

Oil filter was a Hengst E71H D141

Engine was a Sprinter MBenz 3.0 diesel

( these engines require a MBenz spec oil 229.51 - difficult for me to find locally until I found a Schaeffer's point of sale near where I live )

I buy it in bulk 1 gal jugs by the cases.
@ about 20.00 a gallon .

Exactly my thought as well. For an engine still breaking in, this is an excellent 10k mile OCI report. Everything you're doing, keep doing it.

Read the insert in the upper right hand corner of the linked page, all of it:
http://www.lubrizol.com/Products3column.aspx?id=34976&linkidentifier=id&itemid=34976


Your oil is excellent for your engine, but its' phosphorus and ash are way too high for 229.51. In the long run your emission system will deteriorate faster than if you ran a true 229.51 oil. You just proved that it is not a 229.51. Or even a 228.51.
Your engine will survive just fine.

With a warranty of 5 years 100000 miles I won't sweat it

The warranty is for manufacturer defects, not for owner neglect or ignorance. On your way to 5 years or 100,000 miles you will experience decrease performance due to a higher exhaust back pressure. If you can't tell or care about a decrease in engine performance then all bets are off.

There has to be *some* reason why the Euro oils have a much lower ash content.
