What did Blackstone write about it? Do they still give you their opinion on the oil state? Also how long have you been using liquid moly for?

Blackstone said the lead is a little high given the oil change interval but can't draw any conclusion based on only one analysis.

They said the TBN is still good so I guess 8,000 KM between drain is good.

I have been using Liqui Moly for more than 3 years now.
