Here's the latest report for my pilot. Numbers looks similar to previous report although copper dropped of a bit. lead of 1ppm - where's that coming from?

Same as my civic, FD has been estimated, will have the lab to do GC. comments are appreciated.

I think this looks really good for a fairly green Honda DI engine. The GC fuel dilution value should be in the 3% range, but that's remarkably low for a VCM/DI Honda. Don't know about the lead, but at 1 ppm it's just noise and I'd ignore it.


Just curious, are you running 87 octane fuel or higher?

Iím actually quite surprised to see these low numbers. Car has been driven with lots of shorts trips, very few highway miles. I had one tank of premium right before the oil change but all other miles are Costco regular gas. Re-filled it with PUP 0w20 5qts and 0.6 of amsoil.

Indeed, who knows - but it's really insignificant

The lead is statistical noise. Somebody with Napoleonic ancestry may have simply handled the container or breathed near the sample.

Looks good. 5,000 max oci with that vis. .02.

Pretty much what we'd expect for low mile unit break-in, in a short OCI.

Consider extending the OCIs; that's a pricey lube to toss in 3k miles ... Or, ditch the syn and just use the least cost approved lube.


The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money

Updated with measured fuel dilution. I don't see direct correlation between viscosity and severity of fuel dilution. Or they just messed up with the measurements. What are y'alls thoughts on this?

I mean .... why you say so, when it's otherwise.

First UOA - pretty much the same vis as the second one but much lower fuel dilution
