Guys,

Blackstone oil analysis is back. The oil sample was taken with the engine warmed up for 15 minutes and I drove a block around the neighborhood. There is 1.3% oil dilution which reduces oil viscosity a bit. I do mostly local driving, stop&go, short trips and long Idle. The oil was probably overfilled at factory. Yes, I know how to take reading on oil dipstick. There is no way the oil residuals or incorrect reading.

I feel much better now. Although I had 1700+ miles on OD at the time motor oil was changed it is equivalent to engine with 5000+ Miles.

As an aircraft owner I have regular oil analysis done all the time. It's always best to have a series of them done to study trends. Your first one will serve as a "baseline" and subsequent ones will give you a good "trending" picture. I suggest you do at least two more....maybe one in another 2,500 miles and one at another 5,000 miles.

Thanks for the suggestions.

That is what I am planning to do. I ordered two oil analysis kits from Blackstone on hand and ready to send them in at the next oil change. I change my oil every 6 months regardless of mileage. The next oil change will be right around Fall 2019 (October to November). I get all my car maintenance done before winter. I would consider my driving condition “severe”.

Is there a difference between different vendors for oil analysis? I thought someone in another thread perhaps suggested additional vendors outside of Blackstone if specifically looking for oil dilution? Not sure what the different oil analysis vendors are as well as pros/cons of each....

It won't let me edit, here is the thread I was referring to where it's mentioned Blackstone may not be the best bet for accurate reading on fuel dilution of oil as they use an estimated value which isn't accurate

Where online do you order test kits? What does Horizon/Polaris charge for an oil analysis and the test kit?
