Look at the soot number, the Amsoil bypass filter works per design.

Welcome to the site!

Outstanding UOA. No reason to change that oil. Continue to use as is, and get another UOA in another 10k miles.

Wow! Low soot; low wear; decent vis; high TBN. That load has life left in it.

Yes, actually I'd suggest you change your way of thinking.

Don't think about how many miles will limit your OCI. Rather, set condemnation limits for the lube and run as many miles as you can to get there.


For example, here is a thread with some limits from many of the major diesel engine makers:
http://www.calrecycle.ca.gov/Publications/UsedOil/2008020.pdf
Look at page 11 of the report.

You'll see that soot might be limited at 3%. Fe might be around 100ppm. Cu at 30ppm. Etc, etc.

Too many people do not understand how to use a UOA. The goal is NOT to get low wear numbers. The goal is to set safe, effective limits for the lube, and then operate the lube up to that safe level. Once you reach or get near a limit, then you change oil.

Don't limit your OCI; limit your lube!

Mobil Delvac 1300 CJ4 is on the 93K218 approved list.

With a Bypass Filter its possible with synthetic you wouldnt even have to change the filter. I think the biggest issue might be the

Our 60 series run on Delo 10w30 with no bypass filtration run 32kand drains along with the ISX. Mack E-7 and ACET operate on 28k drains with factory spinner. We currently have some older E7 engines with over 1.9 million on them without pulling heads or pan off.

Impressive! And I thought my samples with Schaeffer 7000 15w40 in my S60 were pretty good. Well, they are, but yours are darn good also.

Only difference, is mine is getting Silicon levels at 2-3 ppm. Seems like you might not be getting good air filtration on the first sample, but it did drop on the second. Just an observation.
