Blackstone phone call- Potassium & RevX.......

Well I got a call from Blackstone today about my last oil sample.

Sample details:

Shell T6 5w-40 Synthetic
RevX- 8oz
3400 miles


They said I had about 1000PPM of potassium in the oil, with about 60PPM of sodium. Usually this tells them there is coolant in the oil. She said its not much, they usually see about 20PPM sodium, and about 100PPM potassium.

Doesnt seem to be the case here. She called me back after about 10 min to tell me she looked back into other diesel truck samples, that were submitted with RevX. ALL of them have higher than normal amounts of potassium and sodium. She said if I can send her about 1oz of RevX as a "virgin" sample, they will test it for free. She believes that the RevX has these two minerals in them.

She is sending me two more sample kits. One for RevX, one for my next oil sample. I am VERY curious to see whats in the "mystery bottle" of so called RevX. Let me find out........................

From what I have read about Rev-X and oil samples with it, that is completely normal to have higher potassium and sodium levels.
