I attached it for those interested. I came back with high lead...anyone able to tell me why this might be the case? I use unleaded chevron fuel in california and mobil 1 oil. All other relevant info on the oil report.

That's pretty cool. Do they say how they expect you to lower your lead levels? How much does it cost?

I ***think*** high lead content is bearing wear.

Maybe something on http://www.bobistheoilguy.com could help you.

Yeah, I think that is from the bearings. Rod, and main.

BTW-if you look at the report, it has a note that says the Lead is from the bearings.

But they go on to say that leaded fuel and some types of additives can cause lead in oil...

bottom line is they weren't sure, and I'm not either. i posted on BITOG (bob is the oil guy) and got some pretty good responses. Going to either switch oil, weight, gas, or all of the above.

My first thought, before I even read the report, was "bearing wear." That's exactly what Blackstone said as well.

Could be a number of things - you're in CA, and if you drive hard, that could be putting the hurt on those bearings as the oil thins and more stress is put on them. Could be that you need a higher viscosity.

Mobil 1 has the best basestock of all the commonly available oils, but it's not as good as others in the antiwear additive department. That could be part of it. A 30 weight may be a little thin for your use and climate. Try Mobil 1 0W40 or Valvoline 5W40.

But yeah...go see what BITOG says.
