I use WIX oil analysis kits. I purchased 6 of them on amazon for 35 shipped. Each time I send on it, it only costs me postage which is very minimal, less then 3 bucks.
Blackstone is another lab but they have been going up in price. Polarisis is another and seems to be the new go-to. Oil Analizers is the next lab in line. Basically, see who is the closest to you and has the best price and go from there.
The comments are basically useless so do the research and know what the numbers mean and you will be good.
In my case, I dumped the oil at 5k and took a sample mid stream. If it comes back favorable, I will probably dump the current at 5k and sample again to get 2 data points. If they both show life left, I may push it further on the next fill. Its all about trending your motor to see. Its best to stick with a single brand so you get a true trend.
BobIsTheOilGuy.com (BITOG) is a great site for oil advice. Do a ton of reading and reviewing others analysis results. You will pick up the trends that you need to know to understand the analysis. As with everything, take everything with a grain of salt.
