Subject: FWD: Outstanding Oil Analysis!

Just in case you're wondering how a hybrid holds up across 7500 miles.... (source: insightcentral.net)I just had my Insight oil analyzed. This is one of the best oil analyses I've ever seen. I'm extremely happy. :D I was surprised the wear was so small, because I frequently redline my engine, so I expected a lot more internal damage/wear.
