Looks fine to me. Main thing you look for is in the fuel bowl for metal shavings

Those filter look good for 9,500 miles. I assume you are using an additive with your fill-ups? If so what are you using?

On a side note...over the years I have tried many different additives and filled up at different locations. I always eaxamine my filter(s) when I change them. I have noticed that my favorite fuel stop (They sell a ton of diesel) allows me to go longer on my filters. They look so clean compared to other places I used to go to. When I would stop off at the cheapest place in Chicago, my filters were black as coal when I would change them, and there was always a ton of water when I would drain my seperator. Now I very rarely see water in my fuel and my filter look clean.

The bottom line is your filters are directly related to the quality of fuel your truck uses.

My bottom will usually look the same or worse at 10-15k and the top always looks brand new.

I've tested with Blackstone 6 times and now I have no fear about taking the oil to 15,000-17,500. Everything looks really good at those distances but the viscosity does start to fall below 66 SUS Viscosity. They target 66-78. Perhaps that is the shearing everyone talks about. Your oil looks good.

I put in a FS2500 and I notice the that the aluminum and Iron stay lower but the Insolubles% is the same; always .03. My aluminum is 3-4ppm and Iron is 15-30. These are 10,000 to 15,000 intervals. All the rest is the same stats as your and they tell me it looks good.

My Calcium, Magnesium, Phosphorus and zine are almost spot on with yours. Perhaps I'll the Rotella synthetic versus special ordering the Valvoline Extreme Blue. You have a bit more Moly.

I've got a some Potassium and Boron from the RevX I dumped in at 91,000 after a change.

I was running diesel klean for months, I haven't ran anything in the last 6 weeks. I always fill up RaceTracks that are by the highways since those tanks get filled more frequently than a station 10 miles into the city area- just my logic lol.
