Background story. My wife ran way over her OCI last time on the impreza crosstrek, and she has a (likely worthless) Lifetime Engine Service Contract that requires all maintenance be done - per the Subaru maintenance schedule in the OM by a qualified shop or individual.
So just in case some questions come up in the near future, I want to have an analysis of this oil sample from the long OCI. I think it was around 9500 miles /5 months; I do have the exact mileage and date of all OCI's in her OM which is in her car at this minute.
I collected the sample in a clean Nalgene lab bottle I had, and I plan to pour this into the BS bottle provided.
Now on the BS video they say no tape is wanted or needed on the sample bottle - but how about the outer shipping bottle?
1) Do you guys usually wrap some electrical tape or ?? around the lid to keep curious postal sorters from opening this thing up?
2) On the Engine Slip sample form, What do you put for :
- Unit I.D ___________., Engine Make__________; Model ____________
I can sort of guess on the Engine make, But I'm not sure what they want for Unit I.D. Id like to be consistent with the other big samplers here.
I will also be sure to share results when I get them.!
