You've watched WAY too many CSI Miami shows! Its one thing to argue that through rather EXPENSIVE organic chemical analysis (e.g NMR, Gas chromatograpy, fractional distillation), one could tell one brand of oil from another, assuming of course they somehow got the manufacturer to disclose the confidential, proprietary formula. Its another thing entirely to suggest that one could do analysis to determine brand of oil once decomposed! Honestly this is the most ignorant statement I've every read on the internet. Wow, just wow.
