This facility is a branch store of the main store in Indianapolis. It's a fairly large facility as they used to work on OTR trucks too...but mainly just do heavy equipment sales, service and rental now. But this store doesn't do on-site oil analysis. They'll take the samples but they send them off. We've had several dropped off there. They email me the reports in PDF form.
I remember one analysis in particular where the shop foreman was pretty mad at another guy I work with for not getting the oil changed in his pickup for over 11,000 miles. We were on the old 3000 mile routine for gassers. This was a V8 Dodge 1500 using Citguard 500 15W-40 diesel oil. So the driver of the truck took a sample to Cat, just to be funny, and the report said the oil looked great and continue to monitor. So thats what he did. It made the shop foreman pretty mad. We still talk about that one.
