Thank you for that chart.
I will be buying motor oil similar in fashion to buying wine now in the future.
I'm still disgusted that nobody has brought this out into the open!
There seriously is no news about this, makes me wonder. . .
Thanks for the "heads-up!"
Actually, I haven't used regular motor oil in any gasoline engine for over 30 yrs.. On the other hand, the fact that you are using regular oil may
very well have something to do with the fact that your engine loses and/or burns oil now.
I've been using fully synthetic motor oil in all my engines and I've put over 250,000 miles on each of the last three trucks I've owned without any
of them burning and/or leaking oil. I usually change the filter at 5,000 miles and add a quart to refill it, then I do complete oil changes every
10,000 miles. The fact that I'm not having to do oil changes every 3,000 miles, (as recommended by most regular oil manufacturers) seems to negate
the cost difference between regular and synthetic oil.
I learned long ago that regular oil and regular gasoline are two of the worst things you can put in your engine and both will cause you headaches on
down the road.
Especially when it comes to using "regular" gasoline in small engines, like chain saws, weed-eaters, lawn mowers and even outboard motors. My
repairman told me that if I wanted to save some money, I should quit being a cheapskate and spend the little extra it takes to stay away from the
Well, I'm here to tell you he was right as rain. If you don't believe me, just try switching to mid-grade gasoline on all your small engines and
you too, will soon realize that he is right. I doubt you'll ever have to pay to have the gum cleaned out of another carburetor and they'll start
quicker and run better than ever before.
Anyway, thanks again for the info. The "let me screw you before you can screw me" mindset of the modern day corporate world never ceases to amaze
me and it's always nice to be aware of their latest scams.
S&F for the OP!
