Fuel conditioner affect oil analysis

Can my diesel kleen be adding the the higher iron I'm seeing in my oil analysis. All other numbers come back awesome but with only 5000km on the oil it's at 33ppm. I know it's nothing alarming but I read somewhere that fuel additive could affect it so I thought I would ask the experts here. Also I heard that lots of 6.4 show higher iron is this true?

With a little more thinking on my part maybe this question was pointless since I had no fuel contamination. Anyone else getting higher iron readings on OA

I was seeing it when running Rotella syn, switched back to Rotella dino and mobile syn and havent seen it since. Im not sure the fuel conditioner would be a cause. I run diesel kleen in every other tank or so.

Mobil syn is what's causing it for me. I think I'll just have to try another oil and get a analysis done till I find one that's best suited for me truck and driving conditions

If I remember correctly arent you running something different than 5-40? Maybe thats the issue because I have never had any issues with the 5-40 mobil syn.

Ya last winter I ran mobil delvac 0w40esp. I've been running the 5w40 the rest of the year and just changed it back to 0w40 last oil change so ill test it too. I think it could be from idling so much. I drive 900km to work at the start of my hitch then when I get there I drive everyday to the rig 5km and its cold so lots of warm up time plus short drive. So it's half hi-way km half short trips. I think that's a big part of the increased iron

IMO in town driving stopping and going is worse for ur truck than idling. If that's the majority of your driving expect to see more fuel shown up in ur uoa.

My .05 cents for what it's worth.

That's the weird part all of my oil analysis come back with zero fuel dilution. I'm sure I'm worried about nothing I change my oil every 3000 miles anyways

Yeah everything is deleted. I've done much longer oil change intervals and the sample still says <0.5% wich I'm not complaining about
