Phosphorous.1157
Zinc........1302
Water.......<0.1
Viscosity...10.5cSt
TBN.........8.59

I don't know about the boron. They had re-run it because the Iron and Lead were high for a VOA. The first run Boron was only 8 and the Moly was 672. Also, the first run potassium was only 1.

The first run TBN was 8.19, I didn't ask them to redo that.

Redline must be the most VOA'd oil on the board!

With how much the first test they preformed differs to this one. I would not hold any of those numbers to be totally accurate.

Just compare Redline VOAs on the board to get a round about figure

It's a test of the lab as much as it is a test of the oil. I wanted to try something other than blackstone.
These guys didn't have any redline in their database. They created a new entry for it.

That's pretty much par for the course.
It's there in the UOA too.
