Are you doing any bypass filtration, or is it just the single filter? I'm impressed with how long the oil lasts. I really should start doing analysis, since I seem to go over on my oil changes anyway, be nice to have that piece of paper that says its ok.

Stock filter setup with the Amsoil Ea080 filter. Metro tech is great to deal with, just buy 6 of their sample kits leave them your CC info and email,drop off your samples at your convienience, it's under $20 per sample. They will email you the results. They have an after hours drop box outside which is handy as i'm usually there around 7 am.

Chris, at what interval (km) are you changing the oil filter?

Wonder what had caused that copper spike? Anyway, that seems to have settled down and not really changed much.
Other than that, awesome report.

I was doing it evry 15-20 k Joe, but my amsoil guy says it will go 60k easy, i'm going to go 30k withthe next one. The current one is at 20k and there is nop issues at all. The copper spike doesn't really concern me as Herb told me he saw numbers in the 300's on his truck even while running the bypass setup. I linked an article on copper in the oil with my last report, really good read.

Can someone help me understand these reports? I got mine done and there isnothing in Yellow but comparing mine to OP's there are some major differences.I am about 12,000km into a fresh rebuild. Ran two 1000km intervals of mineraloil then went to Amsoil for 10,000kms and these were my results.

The reason i havea yellow higlight is because my copper reading is way out of their parameters. Your sample results are in the column labeled TB3416, the parameters of your oil new are listed in the far right column. Just read down the columns and compare the two, ie; your copper reads 11 while a new oil reads 0.1. At the bottom of the report in the comments section they are recommending an oil change due to a moderate soot reading of "C", i would try a filter change and top up first, are you using the Amsoil AE080 filter?
Silicon is good one to keep an eye on as well as that is a good indicator of how well your air filter is working.
It's easier to see how things are working with more tests, as you get more data.

Thanks Chris, yeah that is what I had done is just read through and compareand everything looked pretty good but the silicon seemed a bit high even thoughit was not highlighted. Yes I am using the AE080 filter. I have done an oil andfilter change since this reading was pulled because i had the valve cover opena number of times to swap injectors around.

I will keep this as a baseline and go from there. What method do you use topull a sample without doing a change or losing a lot of oil? Also whatintervals are you changing your filter at? Thanks for the help!

I installed a fumoto valve on my oil pan

I am going to stretch them out to twice a year with the Amsoil filter, about 30k, they are good for 60k.
Herb Lansberg is a member of dieselram, not sure if he's on here, he is just a wealth of knowledge and will answer any question truthfully about synthetics
He's also on facebook

I change mine once a year and the oil is still clean but my son who does way more miles is doing 30,000km intervals almost from new with over 200,000km hard towing on his 2011, EAO80 and 5W40 Amsoil full synthetic deleted.

Diesel oil gets black as soon as it starts up b/c of the sulfur in the fuel, I was told by a diesel tech. It will never look like the gas burners, clean and golden. I have used Amsoil 15-40w 100% synthetic since first oil change with their filter and change it every 7500 to 10,000k miles and have never had it analyzed. No problems so far and I tow 6k per yr. across the country. Towing 11k, enclosed car hauler, tandem torsion axles.

That's insane.
Why would anyone in their right mind go 4 times the oil change interval risking their engine just to save $100 on oil?
That's why I'd never buy a preowned vehicle again.

I do a filter change at 15.000km and the oil/filter at 25k and I too used Amsoil from day one. But, 82,000 km's on same oil, someone enlighten me, for Crist's sake, WHY?

Simple. Start doing oil analysis. Let that be an indication as to how well the oil is performing (it will also tell you how the engine is doing). Why throw out something that isn't bad? If the oil is still good, then there is no risk to the engine.
