Made an image of the report. The thumbnail should enlarge twice. Should also mention that the oil had 10 months on it. 110,000 miles total on Jade

If you can't see it properly I'll try something different.

I've used Mobil 1 5w-30 synthetic for years in all my previous vehicles. Been using the Toyota spec 0w-20 in the 14 FJ, but may just switch to M1 now that its out of warranty. Thank you for posting.

Have you been using Mobil1 for the life of the vehicle? If not, how long? Report looks great. Try doing one another after a couple intervals (y)
(y)

I bought Jade in Sept 2015 with 38K on her (110K now). The first owner had all the maintenance done at the Toyota dealership where I got her. I would guess it was Toyota 0w-20. I used M1 0w-20 for a time then switched to 5w-30.

After installing a remote oil filter I started using a M1-301A Extended Performance oil filter. A large filter. (I don't have to remove the skids to change the cartridge any more) I was doing changes every 5K, well before the 6 months. After we retired she is not a daily driver. I will extend the interval but not go beyond the year. I seriously doubt I'll get to 20K in a year anymore, maybe 10K. :)

I may have to go this route to avoid the skid plate removal headache. Thanks for posting.

A PDF file Kevin at Baxter sent me when I started the MOD. He is sending image(s) of an alternate mounting solution.

Another testament to Mobil 1 with your data. That's even better to hear M1 is providing good results (expected I hope) and for the majority of the miles. I'm sure your upkeep of Jade has helped as well.

Does that make a mess when changing the oil do does it drain back from the filter? I wouldn't think draining back from the filter would be good in the long run because of starting empty.

The filter I use has anti-drainback valve. No quarantee that all do.

I poke a little hole in the outer rim of the filter and us a little air pressure to push the oil through the element and into the engine. It does not push it back through the pickup. Not steady pressure, a couple little puffs. Then unscrew the filter until it is almost out of the threads and another little puff. Almost no oil left in the filter adapter to clean up. The adapter does have a edge/barrier that keeps any oil left from spreading.

It does work well.
