Default Blackstone Labs Feedback Not From Me

This was from an Amsoil Dealer who I was reading on Bookface. I've had this conversation with a few of you about this very same issue. And I am willing to discuss it via PM or text. But here is what I read....



For those of you who have had their oil tested using Blackstone Labs, here's some facts to keep in mind:
1. They don't test for oxidation, which is important when testing oils at longer intervals.
2. They don't test actually for fuel dilution. In fact, I have oil analysis from Polaris showing 4.4%, and an oil sample from the same drain sent to Blackstone showing less than 0.5% fuel dilution. Blackstone estimates based on flash point, while Polaris Labs tests using gas chromatography.
3. Blackstone charges $10 extra to test for TBN (Total Base Number). Polaris Labs includes it free of charge, in addition to a return shipping label.
This was pointed out on NASIOC, the president of Blackstone Labs joined the forum and blasted personal attacks. Two used oil analysis were posted proving to him that they fail at testing fuel dilution, and he refused to respond to any posts from that point forward.
Oil Analyzers Inc is AMSOIL's private label for Polaris Labs analysis kits. Among other private label customers are Conoco-Phillips, Ingersoll-Rand, Allison, and Cummins.
Is that enough reason for you?

I will definitely be using Polaris from now on that's for sure. Especially after moat of the other findings were consistent besides fuel.

looking up parts

I've used Polaris for years. They had a good fuel dilution program.... unfortunately too good....

Glad to here about the BlackStone labs report. I hate to here that personally I use them personally outside of work.

I have sent off thousands of samples to ExxonMobil now and there program is pretty good and sophisticated.

Thanks for the heads up on BL

Well that's a Bummer I have been using BL for years. Looks like I will be going a different direction in the future.

Thank you for the info.
