Is all oil Analysis the same
is all oil Analysis the same or where shoud i get my done at?
Is this a good question?
If they go to a true laboratory yes. Gulf Coast filter uses Titan Laboratory $20.50 with prepaid postage US mail per sample and Jerry Sims at Gulf Coast explains it to you. 10 to 14 day turn around. Amsoil uses Horizon Laboratory 25.75 with prepaid postage UPS and you can get your results on line 3 to five days. They also have online classes to learn how to read your samples. They both want your cell phone number for serious sample readings.
No, they are not all the same. Some do not detect ULSD, others don't clean there machines well enough between samples. Polaris Labs is the recommended place to get it done from those who follow Kevin Rutherford's advice.
Single sample - go to speedco or a nearby truck dealer (most have a simple machine that'll give you a clue about your engine).
If you want to make it a regular thing pick one from: Polaris (subjectively the best because I use the OPS system); Gulf Coast - simple, get kits and ship from TAs and Petros + live/personal support; CAT lab.
