I haven't done the oil analysis research yet.. what is this telling us?

Everything is slightly down, but only a little, except Boron and Magnesium, so they were probably in the oil or TP then?

What am I missing?

Boron (I think) and Magnesium (I know) are put into the oil by Mobil to increase their alkalinity rating.......

Note that with the bypass, all the baddies are LOWER after 4200 miles than without at 3000 miles.

That's what bypass filters are for. Keeping stuff down.

Ah.. that's the part I missed -- more miles with the bypass, but still lower readings.

Thanks.
