I googled around about he various elements and what they mean for oil... in respect to your report.



More zing and phosphorous : better for mechanical wear

less molybdenum : worse for mechanical wear

Less boron : worse for preventing acidic erosion of smooth surfaces

Less calcium : worse for preventing acidic erosion of smooth surfaces

more magnesium : better for preventing acidic erosion of surfaces

less copper : your cooler is reacting less with ZDDP - good. copper bushings (if any) are eroding less.

low potassium : your oil contamination level is very low - good



Didn't do them all, I'll edit later if I feel like it.
