After all the talk about the flexible service system, and how oil changes have increased by 200-300 percent, and the better quality oils on the market, and one person saying one thing, and then we go back to "change every 5,000 km,s like we have done for the last 20-30 years," who are you going to believe?

Does any of us actually have any scientific ground to stand on that gives us the knowledge to say with an actual air of authority that we know what we are talking about?

Think about this, there are a lot of mechanics on this board, but no-one can claim they actually know.

It is so-so-so-so-so-so- easy to say something but have no scientific facts to back this up.

Well I have had enough of all this Bull*&%$ talk, and am going to get to the bottom of this oil question.

I have talked to a lab that tests oil, and have spent weeks on this internet studying all aspects of oil, and am going to get an oil analysis on the oil that just came out of my car.

What they will tell me, is where and when my oil is or will be breaking down, along with a lot of other techno-mumble jumbo.

Once this is done, I will post the results here.

May I suggest to the owners of this board to make a seperate column maybe on the left side for others to see, I know there must be a few million people out there wondering the same thing.

My cost to do this test is around $ 400.00 for the whole battery of tests.
