Took this sample in 2012 and never mailed it. Lost it during a move and finally sent it in with the samples from my other cars. Don't know how 5 years has affected the sample but thought it would be interesting to see if anything degraded.

Very good looking report. I'd keep doing what you're doing. Maybe try 5K next OCI.

So this is an oil sample from 5 years ago on a vehicle that you no longer have as it shows to be a mazda. What happened to the car as the numbers back then were great.
