This is the first time I've done a UOA on the car. Seemed to check out pretty well; wondering if Blackstone's guidance on extended OCI is rather conservative.

I don't understand how they can say that the UAs (based on 5k miles) with 5ppm are equivilant to 1250 miles at 5ppm ??? shrug
They say it's "below average", but the average is based on way more miles. Sometimes I don't think they proof read what they write ...

No matter; easily can go 5k miles or more.

Do you rev this up? It's a little screamer, and that might contribute to the Fe a bit.

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

Thanks for the feedback. Think it's worth me calling out to Blackstone to correct? I'm assuming everything on my UOA looks good and the averages are off...but please let me know.

I certainly do rev it up (after it's fully warmed up, of course). It'd be a waste not to, right? smile

Yes. Conservative.

Their 3000 mile OCI recommendation is just based on your current OCI.
