    I never venture into this part of the forum, but thought this might be the best area to post this.

    I just had my oil analysis done with BlackStone Labs, and they are simply incredible to work with.

    They send you a free sampling kit with all the instructions from how to take your sample all the way to dealing with the post office. I managed to ship my oil without filling in some of the information, and I was able to get in contact with a guy to patch things up within 12 hours.

    The report you get back has everything you could want. All the tech stuff is there, but they go the extra mile and give you a column that shows what averages are, plus an average-joe readable comment section.

    See the attachment, that's the report I got back (I blacked out my personal info). I know exactly why I got the numbers I did, and I can form a game plan with my future oil changes.

    I should mention that my total cost was something like $30 plus a postage stamp.
