I put on 5000 miles in just three weeks driving from Pittsburgh to work on relief efforts in the Florida Keys, all over the Keys for two weeks, and back home. So many miles so fast may not be a good challenge, but it is what it is. I wonder if the high sodium is from the salt air since I was around the ocean so much? I was concerned about trying a new oil but that's why I got a UOA.

Wow! This amount of sodium would have me worried, but metal numbers look really low.

Sample contamination, by any chance?

Dunno. All I can figure is from driving so close to the ocean most of the time. Water is 0.0 so I don't think coolant is getting into the oil.

So is it Euro L or just regular Euro? If it's Euro L, I'm not sure what's the point of using a diesel oil in a gasser.

Euro L is SN and is used for certain gassers (fewer in North America) despite Shell's inventory labels.

Euro L. It was the only PP 5w30 that any of the local Walmarts had in stock at the time. Now it's gone and they're back with regular PP. Maybe was a supply issue with Walmart.

Or people stocking shelves don't know the difference. I've come across that here.
