Man, that's a high boron reading.

On UOA, Ultra tends to receive Boron readings in a much lower range than that, like 150-300.

Thanks for the VOA. I just put this oil in our 2006 Forester and so far so good.

Shell does not use a lot of moly in any of their oils.

Redline oils. Most of their offerings have a boatload of moly. Both Honda and Toyota brand 0w20 oils have a similar boatload as well.

Of course, an oil doesn't need a lot of moly to be excellent. Amsoil SSO has very little, for example.

This oil is on the thin side of a 30w, am i seeing that right?

I don't think that viscosity is correct, I had a 6000 mile UOA of Ultra that showed a thicker viscosity than this VOA.
