Just ordered 2 oil analysis sample kits. Been running DexosD GM oil 0W-20, gonna send a sample at the end of this week when I change it, should have approx 10,000 miles will be my 3rd oil change is a bit premature for sure but the first one I did at 1000 miles. So I will take a sample and send it out for analysis, also been using AC DELCO GOLD UPF66R ENGINE OIL filter
Then I will switch to the WIX WL10351, Its supposedly has 5 smaller micron rating approx, I also will switch to AMSOIL
Synthetic Diesel Oil SAE 0W-20
and then send it out for another sample and see if any changes?
More to come with results

I did one about 6k miles ago with ac delco and PPE 1140000650 filter. Truck will be getting amsoil within the next two weeks and I’ll get a sample of it too. Trying to find that wix filter has been a problem so might go back with another ac delco.

Nice! now I wish I understood more about the topics and numbers, Did you have to tell them what kinda oil? I purchased through Amsoil, just wonder if they could determine which oil is which? Since I bought the kit at Amsoil I don't want to tell them what brand oil it is? wonder if I can leave that blank?

I’m sure you can leave that blank but I bet if amsoil is doing the testing that they will figure out it is their own oil. In my Cummins I always looked at the silicon count and 24 would have been high enough for them to say I need to check my air filter. They didnt bring the silicon up this time though, which was weird.

I bought 2 kits, 1 for the DexosD oil and another kit for the Amsoil oil, gonna do both to see if any difference from one to the other both will be approx 5,000 intervals on change.

11/15/21- This is my first Oil Sample taken at 9,000 miles at 2nd oil change using Dexos D for the first 2 changes, then switched to Amsoil and will do another sample 16k about 1k away to see if anything different between DexosD 0w-20 and Amsoil Signature 0w-20, it will be 2nd drain of Amsoil when I send the latest sample.
I was a bit concerned with higher iron #s, but everyone I see posted has a higher Iron #?
