Engine oil analysis

Has anyone ever had this done? I've checked around at a few places and I was just wondering if there is any company that anyone prefers or uses a lot on this site?

You can order a kit from Amsoil and send it in. Its about $25 to $30 for the service. It takes about 2 weeks to get it back. Good service, gives easy to understand info.

Most people here will recommend Blackstone Labs. Another option that may be cheaper is if you have a Caterpillar, Komatsu or John Deere dealer nearby. All of them do analysis and it's usually cheaper than mailing a sample off.

I'll check into the cat dealer, my brother in law was working at one about a month ago as a diesel tech. Blackstone was the one that I was looking at last night. 22.50 is a pretty reasonable price. Do you think that the analysis is worth the money?

Lubriport Labs, Inc.
