OIL THREAD FTW!! :p

Yep, I'm back riding again and feeling a little silly.

Comment on the above, Suzuki's oil change intervals are aggressive.

Oil analysis are fun, and informative if used wisely... I did it for years.

In fact I might do one on the Cadillac soon cause she's drinking coolant.

I mostly use it to see how a specific oil is performing and if I can extend my drain interval. Once I know how long an oil can go and still be good there is little reason to continue analysis on that engine. You do not have to change the oil to test it, you can suck a couple ounces out with a clean tube to send in before draining it. Knowledge is power even with oil. I wonder if some people would rather not know how their favorite brand really holds up against another brand. When I put Mobil 1 10W40 against Amsoil 10W40 they came out close with Amsoil having the edge for extended use. Now I know if I’m on a trip and have a few hundred to a thousand miles to get home that the oil will be fine. Peace of mind is a good thing too. Like I said do it or don’t do it, seems like a win-win to me.
