Picked up an SOS kit form Toromont to give em a try.

About 25k km back I would have added 2 bottles of Ceratec, not sure if any of it was still clinging on.

I should ask them to re-test.

Seems fishy considering the VOA results --> https://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/4408001/VOA_Shell_Rotella_T6_May_2017

Double checked I didn't typo.

That looks like a report from some full-on racing oil like Valvoline VR-1.

No dice. They already discarded the sample.

Email trail that led to a phone convo didn't really go anywhere since I can't prove the additive numbers without official documentation from the manu.

Hopefully the wear/contamination numbers are accurate. I don't think I will use them again.
