How to take an oil sample
- We recommend you start with a high quality oil and run oil analysis every 7,500 miles
- Run engine for 3-6 minutes to agitate the oil
- For best results catch oil sample midstream from the oil drain plug
- Seal the sample bottle
- Fill out the analysis form, peel it off and stick it to the clear bottle containing the sample
- Place the clear sample bottle in the white Gearhead container bottle and seal the cap
- Seal the containers in the pre-paid USPS pouch and drop sample off at USPS Post Office
(Work with Gearhead Labs to discuss engine-specific condition-based monitoring to extend oil change intervals and filter element change intervals)
Results take 1.5 weeks from the moment USPS receives the package.
