All looks great to me smile


Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

Looks decent for a Cummins, which often "make metal" in UOA's

Wear looks average overall; Al a bit high but too early to panic by any means.

That's a lot of money for a lube only used for 7.5k miles! Any lowly dino oil could do as well for far less cost. My recommendation is to either ditch the RL, or greatly extend your OCIs, to get any hope of ROI.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.

The oil is still in the sump so it wasn't changed.

I also want to point out that the engine is not stock. It makes about 650whp and I use the truck all the time to tow my race car trailer.

It has the G56 manual 6 speed so its holding up fine. Only mods as far as the transmission goes are a twin disc clutch, coolers and switched over to an MTF instead of the ATF it comes with from the factory.

My apology! Their wording is a bit ambiguous at times. I made a bad presumption. Keep running out the OCI. Where/how do you sample? Do you have a sample port, a Fumoto, or a suction pump?

For a heavily mod'ed engine, this has decent wear.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.

It's okay no worries. I have a Fumoto valve installed so I took the sample using that.

I do my Dmax the same way. Great little item to have!
