Does anyone here determine their oil drain intervals based on regular oil analysis? If so, how has the oil analysis affected your oil drain intervals?

Most fleet operators change their oil too frequently; disposing of perfectly good oil and causing the unnecessary need to purchase new oil and filters. And since used oil and dirty filters are hazardous materials, disposal negatively impacts our environment. Conversely, with the use On-Site Oil Analysis, the condition of your oil can be monitored so you can maximize the time interval between oil changes without causing internal harm to your vehicle.

With the extension of oil drain intervals, you make fewer oil changes per year per vehicle. That translates to less money spent on disposal of old oil and filters, less purchases of fresh oil and filters, less vehicle time in the service bay and less service bay overtime doing repairs that couldn't be done because technician time was being wasted doing unnecessary oil changes. But savings associated with oil drain extension programs aren’t the only way that On-Site Analysis helps your bottom line. In addition to finding out the condition of your oil, diagnostic analysis alerts you to hidden or emerging potential problems. That means you can do preventative maintenance repairs while they’re small rather than wait for costly catastrophic failures. Less failure translates to fewer breakdowns that generate improved vehicle uptime. And don’t forget the fact that better preventative maintenance will extend the useful life of your vehicle.

We use it on all vehicles coming through our shop!

It is very difficult to know for certain just how long your oil could last before needing a change. The type of car you drive, the size of the engine, the age of the engine, the type of driving that you do and the type of oil that is in your crankcase will ALL have a significant effect on oil longevity.

The research shown that top quality oils can increase the life of engine oil especially those with greater amounts of preservatives. Routine oil analysis assures that many current synthetic oils successfully secure engines from wear with oil change intervals at 15,000 miles.

I use Polaris labs. My oil analysis kits that come with my OPS filters include the UPS labels as well, http://www.ops-1.com/products/faq, an Oil Purification System oil bypass filter that filters down the oil to 3 microns. I usually change out my oil at 100,000 mi.s, but some big rigs are going 200,000 plus before servicing. Cat C9 with 720,000 miles and looking to go an easy million even tho this is supposed to be a 750,000 mi. motor. I do not recommend bench type instant analysis you get at like at a Speedco, heard too many variances and not sure if accurate. Send it to a lab. Caterpillar dealers also have there own labs but not as extensive of a report as Polaris.
