This analysis is from the Cat diesel (don't know the model, nor the brand or miles on the oil--90k on the engine) in the motorhome my neighbor just bought:

code:
Cu     3
Fe 11
Cr 1
Al 2
Pb 4
Mo 14
P 1948
Zn 1586
Mg 1313
Ca 1397
af -0-
fuel -N-
H2O -0-
Si 2
Vis 11.3
SAE 30
S 19
Oxi 1
Nitr 3
Soot -0-

So, it looks to me like clean 30wt!!! I'll suggest that he change it for a 15W-40.

Do the other specs look like CH-4 oil? (Way high phosphorus & zinc, eh?) Maybe a straight 30 CF oil?

Or Mobil Delvac 1300S, or Pennz Long-Life, or better yet, Schaeffer #700.

But...anyone have a good idea of what this current oil is?
