Seriously though...

When you send in the sample to Blackstone, send in a virgin sample too so you have a good comparison, especially of the viscosity over the 5k.
I did that testing various oils in my motorcycle and the results were very interesting, including Royal Purple not performing any better than Castrol GTX.

That is a great idea. I will have to get another sample kit.

I am not sold on the "green" oils or antifreeze. We have been using it the marine industry for a while and the test results are not as good as some claim. I will stick with something that has been proven myself.

I'm still not at 5k yet on mine. I probably won't be getting a report, but at least I know that my money ($free.99) probably wasn't wasted I might make a mental note to take it easy on the last 1k miles or so that I have left since the viscosity they said wasn't holding.

According to the oil whizzes over at Bobistheoilguy.com, The formulation of G-oil has changed slightly in the past few months. They have made some changes to strengthen the additive package. I have the new formulation in the truck now and will report back in 5000.
