Looks pretty good to me. You mixed for a VOA? Interesting.

I mistakenly purchased Platinum HM instead of regular Platinum and my two vehicles are almost new. So I decided to dilute the HM with Pennz Gold Semi-Syn. This blend will only see a 5K OCI in the MPI engine..... so no big deal.

I yanked the Castrol Euro 5w30 out of my older Colorado and sent a sample to Blackstone. That UOA may be in a couple weeks.

Moly is down

And the [email protected] is lower
Than the Penn Gold

I won't use their Atlanta lab anymore. They originally marked both of my mailings as being Ultra Platinum. Then what a coincidence!!! Both of my Calcium numbers are exactly the same. Then both of their [email protected] numbers seemed lower than adverttised / lower than expected.

I'll shop a different company, when I do Valvoline Modern Engine and Mobil-1 AP VOAs this summer. Polaris website is hard to navigate. Not even a link that says 'Get Your Oil Analysis Kit' here. So I'll probably use Blackstone for the VOA, depending on how my Blackstone UOA turns out. I'm expecting that in 7-10 days.
