Saw these on NAPA website and they look just like the blackstone bottles and pump. Does anybody know anything about oil analysis from NAPA? It's $14.29, is that for the bottle or for the test? What lab does the test?

Wow, I'm also interested in this. I might swing by NAPA later in the week to pick up some other stuff, if I do go there I'll ask about these...assuming I remember to

I find it interesting that they keep mentioning WIX.

Thanks for the info, I was looking at the lab they cited on there, however I can't find a sample report at all.

I don't mean to start anything, believe me that's not my intent, but if that's the same sample hardware that blackstone uses, does this lab also do Blackstone's testing? The "Private Label Program" info on the lab's site made me wonder

I've seen another company reselling Staveley Services' analysis, but their name escapes me at the moment. It wasn't Blackstone though...

Here's the NAPA page about their fluid analysis services. Anyone else notice a similarity? It makes you wonder if NAPA doesn't just leave everything filtration related entirely up to WIX.

So is that price supposed to include the actual lab analysis as well?

DOH! I guess it would have helped if I'd have remembered to actually include the link, now wouldn't it? Well, here it is... http://www.napafilters.com/products/filterfacts/fluidanalysissystem.asp

So does this Napa vacuum pump accommodate the Blackstone sample bottles? Are the diameter and threads of sample bottles standard?

It looks to be the same pump. Check out the pump on blackstone's website to compare. I think blackstone pump may be cheaper but have to pay shipping.?

regarding earlier posts about whether blackstone uses stavely, my guess is that staveley/napa, and blackstone all use the same sample bottles, storage bottles, and pump and that is why they all look the same. That doesn't mean blackstone uses staveley to do their analysis etc. but I am sure blackstone would tell you if asked who they farm out work to for the analyses they do not do themselves.

I dropped by my local Napa (CANADA). The cost will be $80 plus tax! (approx $65 US)
