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.
Amsoil XL 5W-20(old synthetic formula) - ~7500 miles
Insight - 27,621 miles
WEAR METALS (ppm)
OIL ADDITIVES (wear prevention)
0.0% fuel dilution
10ppm silicon (dirt)
USED OIL PROPERTIES
7.95 Cst / 20W
