Here is my oil analysis from my Mercedes W204 C220CDI 2007model i using :
ARAL 0W40 SUPER TRONIC
ACEA C2, C3
API SN/ CF
MB 229.31/ 229.51
• BMW Longlife-04
• Fiat 9.55535 -S2
•Porsche A40
"Fully synthetic high performance engine oil for gasoline and diesel engines with and
without diesel particle filters. Based on ‘Aral Synthese Technologie’".
I send oil sample to blackstone one at 13.800km and 18.700km
Here is in 13.800Km on oil and 426,832km on my engine
Thanks for the extra information about this sample. Now that we know the type of
engine this is, we can compare it with our universal averages for the Mercedes 2.2L diesel engine, which are shown in
the far right column. Those indicate typical wear for this type of engine after ~5,200 km of oil use, so your longer oil run
explains why metals are higher. Everything's in good proportion, though, so we don't see any obvious issues. No
contaminants were found, and the TBN is good at 2.3, so the oil can run longer. Try 17,000 km next oil. Nice!

ALUMINUM =5 AVERAGES=3
CHROMIUM =2 AVERAGES=1
IRON =35 AVERAGES=21
LEAD =0 AVERAGES=6
TIN =0 AVERAGE=1
COPPER =5 AVERAGE=2
MOLYBDENUM =156 AVERAGE=42
NICKEL =0 AVERAGE=0

ZINC =890 AVERAGE=1433

SUS VISCOSITY 210F=67.2 AVERAGE=64-76
CST VISCOSITY 100C=12.21 AVERAGE=11.3-14.8
FLASH POIONT F =455
FUEL =<0.5 AVERAGE=<2.0
WATER =0
TBN=2.3
The samle is leaked at transit a little and the paper with details is leaked,
The first comments with out deatails about km on engine and oil is that

This oil sample leaked in transit, so we didn't get any information about this sample. If you can supply us
with the engine type, oil type, kilometers on the oil and kilometers on the engine, we can get you a lot better
information. As it is, none of these wear levels look like a problem. The oil was also free of any harmful contamination
like fuel or anti-freeze and the TBN was still strong at 2.3, so there was some active additive left. 1.0 is a low TBN. Low
silicon shows good air filtration. All in all, a very nice first report for this engine.

I send the information for my engine and km on the oil and blackstone send me more expain comments
Sorry for bad English blush

I'm no expert on diesel engines, but the report looks fine to me.

How many months was the oil in service?

It looks like you're accumulating kilometers very quickly. 427k km in 6 years... do you use it as a taxi or something?

Surprisingly high Mg/Ca levels for a C3/229.51 oil. Aral does not list virgin TBN unfortunately.

Here is analysis after from 18.700km on the oil 445.532km on engine.
NIKOLAOS: A little more wear showed up in this sample, but that's okay given the longer oil run. Universal
averages show typical wear levels for this type of engine after about 16,300 km on the oil. In comparison,
your readings don't look bad at all and since the oil was still in good shape physically, we think a longer run
next time will be fine. The TBN was still 2.3, and that's a little unusual given the longer oil run. Maybe the
250 ml of make-up oil helped. In any case, that's still a strong reading and low insolubles show good oil
filtration, so try going 22,000 km next time

Nice numbers you have there for almost 19000km on the oil.

Normal wear of the engine parts, the TBN still looks strong enough and I didn´t even knew this brand of oil. blush

Regards.
