I changed my oil in my bus recently and got to thinking; should I send this to a lab? I saved some in a jar & did some searching online.
I found a place in Washington State, so I called them. For only $26.50 they will do a basic lab test checking for metal deposits, viscosity, antifreeze, fuel contamination and a few other things I don’t remember. They send you out a test kit; you put oil in it and mail it back to them. Results only take 2-3 business days.
Has anyone sent their oil to a lab before? I was thinking it'd be a good idea since my bus sits for long periods of time, and then is driven for 1,000's of miles at a time.
Here is a link to the site I found…
Seems worth $26.50 to me, what do you guys think? I wish I had thought of this before I put hundreds of dollars and countless work-hours into my bus.
