Be sure you find one that uses Gas Chromotography for testing fuel dilution.

Also be sure that they do the tests on the type of oil you are using.
Sent a sample to another lab, that specializes more in diesel engines, & they missed a few of the tests that the other labs were doing that affected gas engines.



I have used Fluid Life, & AGAT labs

I use fluid life in Edmonton. I think they sell kits for 25$ + extra for TBN and TAN.

I should double check what method they use for fuel dilution.

I have been getting the kits for free at a local agro store. A few of the large implement dealers use thos same company for their testing.

I use Toromont, the Toronto Caterpiller dealer. They charge about $20.
The CAT dealer in Winnipeg should be able to do it for you.

Oil analyzers inc / Polaris in Edmonton. Definately ask for Gas Chromatography or they'll just estimate the fuel dilution
