Advertising on website didnt match experience July 19, 2017
Reviewer: NICHOLAS JENKINS from LOS OSOS, CA United States  
The sample arrived at your facility on 7/7 at noon, but was not touched until 7/11. Your website advertises 24-48 hrs turn aorunf. I spoke with a manager and was fed excuse after excuse. First, I was told that the sample arrived too late on Friday (noon is too late?) so that Friday wouldnt count. Then I was told that you also dont count the day after the sample comes in (Monday) and that "filters are a 3 day turn around." The website states 24-48 hours.

The first oil analysis contained errors, incorrectly listing that I had steel cylinders. I had to call back in and have them update the results based on the correct cylinder material (Nickel).

At this point I have no confidence in the report since it was issued with errors and the comments were based on those errors. My results were not available for a full 120 hours after receiving the sample. This is far beyond the 24-48 hours advertised.

Oil Filter analysis August 8, 2012
Reviewer: Billy Tidmore from Tallassee, AL United States  
The whole process was very easy and I shipped my filter back the day after receiving the package.  Only a few minor problems.  I never received an indication when my sample had been analyzed so finally went on the web site to find it.  This required a customer code, which I had to obtain after trying several different combinations.  After this, the report was visible and complete.
An email with the information would have been helpful.
