If you want piece of mind, order a Sample Kit (free) from Blackstone Labs, and when you receive the kit, extract enough oil to fill the sample bottle to at least 3/4 of its capacity, and then send it out with $28. You should have results in about 10 working days.

I send Blackstone Labs a sample from each oil and filter change. It provides a good indication of oil health, based on your individual drive cycles, along with change interval, filtration, etc.
