Dean,
Flagged data does not indicate an immediate need for maintenance action. 
Continue to observe the trend and monitor equipment and fluid conditions. 
Silicon is at a MINOR LEVEL; SILICON sources can be abrasives (dirt, Alumina Silica),

Nice work, that's a really cost effective lube looking around my local SCA

Yeah. I got a 20L drum of it a while back for $100. It works well for me as a mixed fleet oil (2 cars and a motorbike).

Why do you say that? The owners manual says I can use anything up to a 20W-50.

Lol. Oh right. I suspected, but wasn't 100% sure.

One thing I have never really understood is the (I can only assume) 'cultural mindset' that in North America a thin 5w-20 oil is what is 'best' for an engine, and a person might be shocked if a 10w-30 was used.
Whereas in some other parts of the world, with a climate not too different, great results can be shown using even a 15w-40 in the same engine.

I think the difference in oil specs by market for the same engines show that the oil viscosity doesn't matter too much in most engines and in most conditions.
Cold starting is the only difference most people will see, and if the temps are not near the oils minimum operating range, I doubt the difference is significant. For a 60F "cold start" almost any viscosity will do.

I always pick my oils viscosity according to the temperature range of where I live. In winter my coldest mornings are about -2 Celcius and in summer my hottest days are around 42 Celcius, so a 15W-40 or 10W-40 seems to do the trick all year round.

I recently had my car serviced at the Toyota dealership and they put a 10W-30 in it. Will be interesting to see the results of my next UOA.

I wish we could get Penrite here in the U.S. I'd run their ten tenths racing oil in my drift car if I could! (at the right price)

"Cold Start" after sitting all day in the parking lot at my office in the summertime - 95-100F. The engine is warm before I even start it...

Normal engine operating temperature is 210-220F, so your engine oil is still 100+ degrees below its desired temp. With 100 degree difference it deserves to be called a "cold start".
