I would like to post an upcoming oil analysis from Blackstone in a few months. I never learned how to post the results as received from Blackstone. Is there a STEP BY STEP procedure available? Ed

The two main options are to upload an image of the results, or type them out into the body of the post, preferably using the code block features to maintain whitespace. I don't know of a step by step procedure, but it's pretty easy to figure out. This post may help:

I agree typing up is probably best for preservation, but most time consuming. If you'd rather upload an image, see this older thread for steps:

Except you don't have to upload the image to a third party image hosting site anymore. You can now upload images directly to BITOG using the "Upload inline image(s)" icon (5th icon from the left above the reply box).

By far we prefer you put it in code block text. (Use something like "Note" from MS, etc).
Once you type in the format, it will stay formatted when inserted (use the "#" to induce the correct code you're using)
It's great once you set it up, because as you add columns to your UOA files, it will auto align everything as you add stuff.

You can also cut/paste into a jpeg using snipit or such tool; then post as an image. This is quicker, but not able to be edited once posted, so you cannot "add" info as the UOAs progress or if you want to modify stuff.

The act of preventative maintenance, in and of itself, is FAR MORE important than brand/grade/base choices among lubes and filters.
- under maintaining something is akin to abuse/neglect; that can kill equipment by shortening the lifespan
- over maintaining something has never been proven to be anything but a waste of time and money
