Bought one of these off ebay a few weeks ago for S&G.

http://www.obd2tuner.com/oto300-engine-o...ter-p-1767.html

NOPE, i did NOT pay that...about the same I paid for the BugA Salt that should be here this week (again for S&G)

Colorado has about 7,500km on the current oil, OLM shows 52% remaining. Amazing magic numbers tool says that the oil quality is "2".

Wife's Captiva has about 1,500km on the oil post camshaft swap and rockers...it too showed a "2"

Plan is to keep monitoring the Colorado down to 0% OLM, and see where the amazing magic numbers tool ends, and use that for the Captiva.

I don't trust, nor believe the numbers generated.

Having done a little bit of research, I DO think it will give me a head gasket/coolant leak warning, and maybe not much else.

Looks like a lubricheck clone.


It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that ain't so.

Never mind that. Let us know how the BugAsalt goes, particularly if its effective against mosquitos. I use an electric tennis raquet but their evade is pretty good.

I see its available on Amazon in

France (www.amazon.fr)

- Germany (www.amazon.de)

- Italy (www.amazon.it)

- Spain (www.amazon.es)

- UK (www.amazon.co.uk)

Ha! Like they HAVE insects.

Even if it only does that reliably that would put and end to me doing a UOA on repairs like GM UIM just to make sure the repair is tight. That would be okay by me.

So, about the size of a business card...Actually I could use one of those several times a day and build up some insights. I do a blotter test (I rip the top off a filter carton and use that) on everything I do an oil change on, and most I don't too. I may see it's way over, or no lube sticker, and dip the oil onto my bit of cardboard. A customer the other day said ''So I should change the oil at 10,000km, 40,000km might be too much ?'' Probably the worst I've seen.

15,000km, and the OLM is down to 5% (going for a service in a couple weeks time).

Magic Numbers machine showed a "3" for the first time.

I'm guessing that it's a dielectric...like I said earlier, maybe only really good at coolant leaks and water.

Can buy a much ore expensive one, from a reputable supplier

Here's another that you can get on ebay..
