Smile Blackstone Oil Lab report

Well after 8k on my new 200tdi I wanted to get an oil report from blackstone to see the level of wear in the engine.

I have been using Rotella T6 5w40 in the motor full syn. I have been experiencing about 1/2 quart of consumption over 3k miles.

More than i wanted to see really, so i sent the oil in. Report came out great, this report was on oil that was only in the engine for 2500 miles tho as i had the time to do a change and the itch to know.

Great service btw had the report in 2 business days after they RX the oil.



I think my consumption is from some initial break in and hard driving. The 110 sees 60MPh hour long commute through north jersey/NY traffic 10 times a week.

I called them and they said that due to using syn as my initial oil i may see extended time of this type of consumption but it will trail off down the road.

Ill be bumping my changes from 3k to 4k and adding when needed from now on. Also on the initial oil that i put in the motor i added a ZDDP additive from summit racing.

No soot? That is the important number on a diesel for determining oil change intervals. I'd say lead is high.

You should be able to go much longer intervals. I'm running 6000 miles and that is only around 50% to the soot limits.

Soot is the insolubles percentage I think. Less than 1%.

The oil at around 3k will come out a translucent black. Not like not on the old engine were it was black as the night.

Ill email them and ask
