I donít know how Toyota does this without excessive moisture and fuel in the crankcase.

Report looks good. Technically the engine only ran for what, 9,000 miles? Give or take a few hundred. Haha

I'd say there's definitely fuel in that sample. Direct injection engine isn't it? Blackstone's inaccurate readings of fuel dilution aren't cutting it with so many GDI and TGDI engines going around these days. Viscosity and reduced flash point are the giveaways here. KV100 should be somewhere around 8.6 for M1 AFE 0W20.

Report still looks really good regardless of the fuel.

it's port fuel injected, not direct. High-ish fuel dilution (its not that bad...) could be just an annoying consequence of it being a hybrid, which has trouble warming up because the engine stops & starts very often while driving. Engine often operates in short bursts.

Way too much calcium for Mobil1 AFE 0w20. http://www.pqiamerica.com/June%202014/exmoM1.htm
Too much moly too. Hard to see how the previous oil could have left that much behind. (?????) Are you sure this is M1 AFE 0w20???

This isn't AFE. Either the oil in your crankcase was something else, or we're looking at the report for someone else's oil sample.
