I've seen some serious snark directed at M1 because it shows higher iron in UOA.

Could it be an additive of some sort?

What wears that releases iron?

Is high iron really a problem? Why or why not?

Let's discuss

Ancient history from my point of view. I ran AFE out to 17K miles with no excessive Fe in the UOAs.

Yes, it was a few generations ago...

but with any elemental analysis, you have to ask that question...is it wear, or is it material being liberated from the couple of square feet of oil wetted surfaces that have nothing to do with wear.

The latter (appeared to be ) the consensus back in the M1 high Fe days.

I'll have a UOA in another month or two of M1 HM 10w-30. I've got 30% left on my OLM which is about 2k miles left in oci. Total miles to 0% is 7500

I'm mulling over if I want to try the M1 AP 5w-30 and take it to 20k. Important to know what's going on

Why not just run the AP, take a sample for UOA at 15k, and decide from there?

I don't find it a coincidence that during the time we saw high iron numbers on UOA here with respect to M1 5W-30 was during the time that it was found that the M1 5W-30 SM was failing the Sequence IVA cam wear tests(direct measurement of cam wear, not UOA "wear" metals).

Yes, SM formulation, one viscosity only, so it's ancient history, and we do have the limitations of UOA to factor into our observations here.

I'm not a consensus seeker. Fifty-one percent of the people picking the wrong answer is a consensus. Fifty-one percent of the people picking the wrong answer does not make it the right answer.

Never attribute to engineers that into which politicians, lawyers, accountants, and marketeers have poked their fingers.

Just generally, this is a solid statement. approved
