Not much to say here, looks good as predicted for a short OCI. I've used up the "included" services and I'm on my own now. I'd love to do 10k OCI's but I'll keep the 6K due to warranty until 100k. At least I can put a dent in the AZ clearance stash!

I've never seen a PP uoa/voa with sodium in it before and that low of moly for the 0w-20. This UOA seems strange. Did you run a valvoline oil the previous oci?

I haven't seen any Pennzoil with sodium either. The old and new formula PP on PQIA both have <5 ppm, so to have 250 in this sample would indicate a lot of something else is in it, a typo or bad news.

I was pretty sure it was PP but I could be off. My other stash oil was Valvoline 5w20. The previous oils we're all Subaru 0w20.

I'm getting old! Now I'm pretty sure I ran the 5w20 Valvoline for summer and I saved the 0w20 PP for the next change for fall. You guys are sharp!

Cool I got free Moly! Last oils we're all Subaru 0w-20 from dealer, no additives. Oil had to be PP 0w-20 or Valvoline 5w-20, those are the only two I have on hand. The next UOA will be with M1 0w-30 AFE, that one is for sure!
