I shipped my sample Canada Post on Sept 30 and chose just the normal Express Post (not to be confused with the "priority" Xpress Post).   

It's been at LAX under "Customs Review" since Monday Oct 9, no update. The ETA Delivery was Oct 10.

Yeah, mine went out a couple days before Kijho's. I didn't choose the tracking option. Staying tuned.

Funny enough a few hours after posting the above I got an email with my analysis! Just checked the Canada Post Tracking info this morning and it still says it's with Customs in LAX.. interesting.

I'm assuming something like this wouldn't be very accurate if a chunk of the oil is added during the interval?

I go with 20,000 KM OCI but top up 0.6L~ (4.5L capacity) every 5,000 KM (essentially 3 top-ups before changing).

On the slip it mentions if you have added any, to specify the quantity and the grade/brand. I think they can bump the concentrations up as part of the calculation analysis and account for it.

Still haven't gotten my analysis yet...

Sent in my analysis about 2 weeks ago and received the email today. Unfortunately, when I was changing my oil, my father got ahead of mea and dumped a lot of it. So I only had about half the container to send in and due to this, I missed out on a few tests. Oh well.
