    I would like to add this report to the analysis report even though
    i put it on this site back in Jan 2016. At the time i thought i fuel in
    the oil so i changed it early. We mainly do short trips most of time.

    My stepdaughter did a lot of short trips over the cold months in her CX5, also. The oil really reaked of fuel when I changed it a month ago.

    Just changed my oil today at a 5K miles. Going to send the sample on monday if I don't forget. This will be the factory fill. Only thing I really want to see from the first sample is the TBN.

    It'll be very interesting to see how much the molybdenum content is from your oil analysis. And it'd be nice to know if the factory oil is indeed the Mazda moly oil or something else. Keep us posted.

    I asked how to input oil reports in the lounge section and received many answers. However; I was unable to succeed in posting my Blackstone results. Until I have time to mess with this OR we have a reasonable CUT & PASTE option, I fear my analysis will be missing. Sorry about that. Ed

    See if this screen recording of posting pics here on this site helps. I did it kinda fast so let me know if you want to clarify what I am doing. I did this on Safari for the Mac but should be basically the same in all OS and browsers.

    Try playing video I posted here:

    EDIT: I am assuming you already have a scan of the Blackstone report or are you trying to upload the PDF that Blackstone sent you. If PDF you will have to upload as an attachment. Let me know latter and we can refine further to get that linked up. You should still be able to upload the PDF using this video. Getting it in the message will be slightly different.
    All else fails, maybe he could email one of us his report and we can post it here for him.

    Awesome! Thanks for doing that!

    Looks like the Pennzoil Platinum has more Moly in it than Mobil 1 AFE according to gner's UOA sample (post #19). Living in Florida, the CX-5 probably doesn't have to deal with below freezing temperatures and extreme cold starts, so I would assume less wear?

    Some questions:
    1) What is your driving style Ed (ie, city vs hwy %)?

    2) Have you always used Pennzoil Platinum? If not, what were you using before?

    By the way, for others that feel it might be too expensive to use Blackstone, here are some alternatives:

    This was the third oil change. FF at 3,000 miles then 6K and this one at 12,000. Always used PP in 0w20. I do ~ 80% suburban and I am an easy driver. I have another analysis coming up in ~ 1,000 miles for a 24,000 mile check. Ed

    So how expensive for used oil analysis by Blackstone?

    For me, including postage and a TBN, about 40$. The TBN adds $10. However, I won't be using it for all my tests, just the first few changes to get a baseline. Black stone has a kit that includes 6 tests for a discounted price.

    Glad to see the report on the Pennzoil Platinum. Just did an oil change and that's what I put in to replace the Mobile 1. At $24 for a 5 quart jug at Walmart it's a bargain.

    My sample just got in.

    About my location and driving habits:
    - I don't really experience temperatures below freezing (typical So Cal weather)
    - I always allow my CX-5 to warm up till the RPM settles (I timed it once and it was about 22 seconds)
    - About 60/40 Hwy/City. Hardly any short trips. I work in construction and bounce between jobs alot so sometimes the commute is all open highway, sometimes its all highway but with 30 miles of stop and go traffic all the way home.
    - Driving style: on a scale of 1-10 (10 being really aggressive) I rate myself a 6.
    - Lastly, only 4 tanks since ownership was filled with 91 octane gas, the rest with 87.

    My first sample:


    So it looks like the factory fill is probably Mazda Oil with Moly. TBN shows that I could have stretched it out a lot longer. So for those with brand new CX-5's, stretching out the OCI to 7.5K miles should be no problem. I am going to shoot for 8K mi OCI and will report back.
