Good stuff. Now you can understand why zero um is the bottom limit for detected metal size.

Nice to see the process behind the results.

Thanks Dave for your time and efforts; I was in Chicago a few days ago, so I know that you did indeed brave the weather in Indiana...

I am curious; when I send the oil to them, what can they find without me telling? Can they identify original viscosity, manufacturer etc?

Getting around to viewing many of the articles written here, and I must say: brilliant research and article writing! I think I'll grab a UOA test kit ahead of my next OCI (never done it before, but considering my 99 Dodge Ram has 219500 on the odo, it's time). Thanks for the article, definitely well-worth my time smile
