Hello, this is my first post here been a lurker for too long! This UOA is on my 2017 Ram with a 6.7. I noticed the oil looked watered down. The oil was Rotella T6 5W40. The Oil and filter was changed to T6 15W40. 50%of the usage was towing a 5th wheel trailer. I normally change the oil every 7k. I am hoping the iron content goes down.

And yet it tests at precisely the data sheet viscosity. This illustrates how inaccurate the visual viscometer can be.

I think that UOA looks great in my opinion. Trust the green check mark, it is there for a reason.
