I posted this in the genral forum and only receive done response, which did not answer my question completely. I just did an oil change (GC) and wanted to know since I used a magnetic drain plug if the sample would be even worth sending in. I might just send it in, because last time I had a high FUel Dilution reading so maybe it is worth just sending it in for that. Let me know what you think.

Why wouldn't you send the oil in for a UOA? AFAIK, the only reading on a UOA that <i>might</i> be affected by having a magnetic drain plug would be the Iron (Fe) reading.
