Yes, sorry. What were the driving conditions of the run? Towing? How much how often? Iron and lead are a bit high for that short of an oci, not out of the normal range I guess but a little higher depending on how the truck was driven.

Sorry I haven't been on in a while to reply. The truck gets driven hard everyday and has a lot of short drives too sadly. I pull a 20ft enclosed lawn trailer about once a wk with equipment.

Given how hard the truck gets worked nothing seems too out of place. The Iron is a bit high but not crazy high. The rule of thumb on Iron is under 100 ppm is fine, sounds like 5k OCIs are about right. No TBN but the oxidation number is not out of hand so no need to worry.
