    Got a report from Blackstone lab. I change oil every 5k miles and use Motul Hybrid 0w-16. Report shows high iron, should I try to switch to another oil brand? Or try to send another sample to see what is goin on?

    Is "Motul Hybrid 0w-16" TOYOTA grade oil?

    Just follow Blackstone's advice: send another sample at your next oil change.

    Their conclusion is very clear to me.
    Iron is high but they supply possible reasons for it.
    Sending in another sample at the next oil change is the best option. This analysis report is your baseline and if you change to a different oil you will skew the results of the nexy analysis.
