Looks like that might depend on OBD II data. Is that available on some/most/all of our diesel engine vehicles?

OBDII is on almost none of our buses I'll wager. The cutaway van style perhaps yes, but the kind built on a medium duty truck chassis are more likely to use J1587, J1939, etc instead of OBDII.

my bus is pre OBDII as a 93, but that is a very cool app!!

I wish my bus had gauges like that.

i got my oil analysis back from Blackstone... also a cool service.

I am going to check the intake tract for leaks. Plan a visual and perhaps a vac. gauge at the filter minder location? Don't know what numbers I'm looking for, maybe someone has an idea?

all you can do is test again next time.

i sent a sample in from my daily driver as well as the bus and it was very high in iron.
