Despite Blackstone’s comments, looking at viscosity there may be quite a bit of fuel in this sample. This could explain the relatively high iron/1,000 miles. If it were my car, I’d cut the OCI to 5,000 miles to see if it made a difference.

Agreed. Mazda says 7,500 miles max in the US under ideal conditions. Why go further?

Don’t they use salt on the roads in Iowa? That falls under severe according to Mazda. Is this EP or AFE?

A fair bit of fuel, as others have said. Long run, but the oil held up well. I would expect iron to trend down a bit as mileage accrues.

I don't know why does Blackstone keeps comments section in their reports - they are 100% useless. My wife's would make more relevant comments on this report.

I would change it sooner also, without the 5w30 you added, your viscosity would have been even lower.jmho

I agree, there more fuel in the same oil then this report shows (just look at the flashpoint)

This oil is practically 0w16 at this point. It's amazing the engine seems fine with it.

If it was my car, I'd drop the OCIs a bit, not go higher. What did the oil life monitor show at the time of the sample?

I think thats a bit long of a run considering the cst is only 6.18 @ 100c. Iron is up a touch not bad, but i just would not want to drive with a 6.18 cst oil. I have the similar engine in my 17 cx-5. I'm going to pull a sample at say 2500 on this oil to check fuel dilution.

I never like seeing double digits of iron.

I wouldn't go to 11,500 miles....
yes, this oil is still "good" in that it isn't anywhere near close to being "completely spent",
but I think it's near the end of it's useful life.

Less than 3ppm/1k of iron is hardly the end of the world. You’re trying to say I should cut down my 17k OCIs by half just because it ended up at 18ppm, just so I can keep it under 10? Not gonna happen, no basis in fact to do so.
