Wow very nice! thumbsup

I would stick with 15K as your "Safe" change interval.

What filter?

Nice report Ö but think the Blackstone cat was trying too hard to earn his keep with the 17k comment

Great report. IIRC the 1.6 is timing belt engine. Might explain some of the low wear metals. That, and the M1 EP of course!

Replaced the M1 EP with M1 AP. I intend to go the full 20,000 miles.

One filter. I saved it to cut it open. I just need a good method of opening it.

Glad some folks here have the grit to go well over 10,000 miles. I get hives after 8,000 independent of the OLM.

Nice job!

+1 to what StevieC stated.
You must have a good long drive and into work I am thinking... Driving to Norfolk from my old stomping grounds was a 1 hr plus drive for those who did it.

Looks great, I agree with Blackstone, you wont have any issue going to 17. Cant wait to see 20k miles! Im sure the results will still be good, they look great for 15k here.

I would stick with 15k. Itís a good round number and there would be a cushion for those intervals when conditions are not the best like winter for example. On the other hand, if it took the better part of a year to rack up that 15k, then the M1 AP oil over 20k would be an option.

Yep, not sure Blackstone runs the same kind of tests Mobil does ~ this came from lab work:
