Pre Rev-X Oil Sample

I was selected to test Rev-X in the 6.0 I have. I was thinking of pulling some oil for a Oil Sample before installing the Rev-X. I was thinking of removing the Oil Filter and taking some oil from inside of the canister. I don't have a very good memory and can not remember if all the oil drains out before you put the new filter in. I was thinking of just changing the oil filter to a new one right now and when I ran the Rev-X for a while and change my oil take another sample.

I have about 2,600 miles on current oil change of Rotella 5-40W synthetic. Did about 800 miles of towing during this change most is daily drives to school just long enough to get everything warmed up.

Need some Ideas Quick Don't want to pull the plug to drain it and only other option would be to suck up up through the dip stick.

I'd go the dipstick route. Might want to get you a Fumoto Valve for the future. Makes getting samples much easier.

I found some 1/4" ice-maker hose and had a large syernige pulled it up through the dip stick tube. I was real easy just marked the hose with the end of the dip stick ran it down to the mark sucked up the oil. Did it while it was hot also.

Hmm blackstone always told me to get the sample mid stream on an oil change.

Have they changed their rules? I havent had one done in about a year

I don't use Blackstone I use Schaeffer's lab. I am expecting to go to at least 7500 on this oil so I figure I'll send it in at 5k. I may go at 4500. I am interested in the 5k result because that's when I usually send in my sample.
