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.

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.

8,500km on the oil, OLM just dipped below 50%...still a "2" on the magic numbers machine.
