So if I drop of a Duramax oil sample, the CAT dealer would be cheaper and quicker with a full page report? Please confirm, I'm always looking to save a buck.

Pick up an oil sample kit from your local CAT dealership parts dpt. (truck or construction equipment doesn’t matter) The price of the kit includes the testing. Pull your sample and drop it off. Engine make doesn’t matter. All CAT main stores have on-site oil labs.

Yep... try it. And you can discuss results in person if you drop by for the results plus you will receive results by email. I used to use other places for oil analysis but it took nearly 2 weeks to get results back. Now it is only takes just a couple days.
