engine oil analysis

I just received my first oil report and the only issue is the lead was high.
Oil is shell 5 40 sample pulled @ 3500 miles. Most of the mileage was pulling my fifth wheel with a weight of 12K. Burned 155 gallons of WVO and 145 gallons of diesel.

Is anyone else having their engine oil tested?

Could be turbo bearings going. Any mods to the turbo?
Also, watching for trends is the biggest and best thing about

Only mods on engine is air intake and heated WVO system.

Is this an OK system to use on your truck? Not familiar with it.

I just got my report back with a lead high of 10ppm. It is from the bearings. rods/mains.

I tow 10,000 trailer and run straight diesel fuel. I use Rotella 15-40 oil. I change it every 5,000 miles. I called Blackstone and talked to the tech. He said I should change the oil just BEFORE going on a heavy towing trip. NOT after. I will send them a sample after 4,000 miles and see what count is then.

My 2004 E-350 SD van with 6.0 Ford engine has a 100,000 mile warrantee. I would never try to use other crap with the fuel including veggie fuel. Don't want to mess up the warrantee. I get about 12 mpg pulling that load and 15-16mpg around town. I am retired and on a small fixed income. I do not want to have to pay heavy repair bills.

I am thinking about going to synthetic crank case oil. I will talk to Blackstone before trying that.

Bruce,

The Blackstone report said they could not tell where the lead came from.
All other metals were below normal. They said if it was from the bearings there should have been other metals with it.

I hear you on keeping you engine warrantee intact. I know converting and running WVO is a risk. I have about 5,000 miles of running WVO with out any issues
