I put a lot of miles on my FiST, probably faster than most people do, so I figured I'd start sharing my oil analysis data as I go.

I've attached the first two and should be doing a change very soon. Probably next weekend - a little longer than I wanted to run the oil, but that's the way it goes.

I was going to ask were all the Mg came from but after digging up some old oil analysis I realized it is likely a detergent/dispersant additive component. I just changed to using Castrol Liquid Ti 5w20. If that is what you were using, it is probably where the Ti came from.

Castrol FST and Liquid Ti both have a bunch of titanium (titanium oxide I think) and Magnesium in their additive pack. The rest are definitely detritus from crankcase shavings and piston honing from engine break in.
