    Sending mine off today.
    2017 GTS. now at 3300 miles. Oil was filled with full synthetic Liquimoly Molygen 5w-50 and a K&N filter when we purchased with 1300 miles (by Zen Racing, Atlanta..if you're on FB you may be familiar with that ordeal) . It was way darker than expected for only 2000 miles, but it now has Mobil 1 0w-40 and the OEM Mopar oil filter.
    I'll update as results come in.

    Here's a test with more intervals and more mileage. The downward trend in wear metals is comforting, and probably the norm for these engines once they get some mileage in them.

    Notes: my car got a new engine at 14,000 miles and I failed to test the first oil change at 15,000 miles. I have used M1 15w50 since the beginning of my ownership. The car consumed about a quart per change until recently it seems to have mostly sealed up after 10,000 miles on the engine. I do 1-3 HPDEs per year. Typically burn a half quart per HPDE weekend.

    I was relieved to see that. Got me to looking at the numbers that were lower than the "universal" averages too.
    My concern was how dark the oil was, but from what I read, it's just the oil doing it's purpose, cleaning, etc.
    Was there a link or list in here (I couldn't find) that has all the explanations of each element, mineral, additives etc all in one place?

    This thread is interesting. Do any of the results mention what lab testing methodology they use for the various elements? I’m also assuming that the reporting is on a weight basis?

    go to Blackstone Labs website and read the FAQ to see if that answer your question.

    It was not in the faqs, but they listed the ASTM standards they use elsewhere on the site. It was more just a professional curiosity. Thanks.

    Cool. I was curious as well. I found some good info search "oil analysis". We also have or had a couple petroleum engineers on here, 'TomFLGoR' for one, not sure if he still around. You might try messaging him?

    I might try to look him up when I get time. I'm a chemical engineer (brother is a petroleum engineer) and previously worked for a large company at a refinery that manufactures motor oils among many other petroleum products/fuels. Motor oil wasn't my area of expertise (High octane fuel was), but my hobbies led me to be more curious than your average bear I suppose about the motor oil.

    I'm sure others would love to have a little more understanding to their analysis'. Post anything pertaining you may find. That's awesome
