Somebody smarter than me did point out the lab did the UOA ASTM method as they do not perform the “new oil” ASTM test. There is some error in the actual difference between the two tests, but I am not personally aware of what the actual difference is. I think they mentioned it was about 1.5-2.0 numbers, but I can’t say that’s true with confidence.

I'm not a TBN nut but it sure isn't very high. The moly and boron look good. Thank you for sharing!!

I mentioned it in one of the RGT threads- TestOil (and nearly every other lab only perform the ASTM test for used oil), which reports a TBN number 1-2 full points lower than the virgin oil ASTM method. A UOA will give you a more accurate result to see how TBN holds up on this oil. I should have a UOA on RGT 0w20 by October since its running a 6k OCI in an ‘18 Forester.

What’s the benefit of using this oil verses a PCMO ?
