    Have you got these results back yet? I'm just curious what the results were.

    No, I was slammed with work and Christmas so didn't have a chance. I got it shipped out a couple days ago. I'll try to remember to post something when the results come in...if I'm not too despondent. :P

    Its all good. I'm just into this sort of stuff. e.g. see my post on volvospeed... http://volvospeed.com/vs_forum/topic...-3309-by-gcms/

    Is it okay to link to other forums?

    I was going to dual post this on this forum but thought it tasteless... potentially.

    NO WATER...NO ANTIFREEZE!!! WoooooooHOO! I have just moved from Maine to Texas, am starting a commercial photography business from scratch and cannot afford a major expense on my old mule. We need to tough it out for a year or two.
    (...sigh of relief...) SO(!) glad I didn't believe those chem-strip tests. Blackstone Lab saved me a TON of money!

    Oh yeah that's the good stuff. Actually your TX fluid looked very good. I'm curious as to what methodologies they use. Surely its an ICP-MS (if you're not familiar with inductively coupled plasma its certainly worth a google because they are fantastically cool machines) for the metals analysis but I wonder what sort of preparation they did to cut through the matrix. Thanks a lot for sharing!
