    2018 XRS Rotax Engine Oil Analysis

    Hey,

    I'm not sure if anyone was interested but I figured I would post some oil analysis data for this engine.

    Fuel dilution is measured via gas chromatography, so this is an exact percentage vs. a calulation/estimation.

    This was on a brand new unit.

    A few comments. Stock oil and filter did not do a good job. Stock OEM map is surprisingly trimmed properly, it is not running rich nor lean, and the combustion dynamic is great. Poor ring seal and afraid I may have possibly not seated the valves correctly. This is a bit harder to do with a CVT vs a traditional transmission.

    Would be nice if I knew what I was looking at, it looks like it might have some valuable information.....if only we knew what it meant.

    Different lab, but you'll get the gist. I used DOA to help ID a leaky high pressure fuel pump on my f150 and decide what oil was the most tolerant of it. Military has been using it for years to determine major service issues before things go boom. The thing that I liked about the report that I got through Amsoil was it highlighted out of spec findings that this lab doesn't seem to die those of us that are not petroleum engineers or chemists, etc.

    Zero moly is disappointing. No TBN listed, is that an optional test?
