Re: Marvels Mystery Oil
IMHO the best thing you can do is use true synthetic oil. I have seen tests where two identical engines were run side by side on dynos - one on oil and one on synth.
After umpteen hours, only stopping for oil changes - I think it was over 100,000 miles equivalent - they were torn down. The oil engine showed the usual extensive wear you'd find at that point.
The synth. engine was completely clean and all measurements were within original tolerances - essentially NO WEAR.
It's expensive stuff but a classic "pay me now or pay me later" situation.
I've been using it for years in my vehicles and the only downside I've found is a slightly increased tendency to leak - the stuff is so slippery it can creep out where oil stays in.
I, myself, personally intend to continue being outspoken and opinionated, intolerant of all fanatics, fools and ignoramuses, deeply suspicious of all those who have "found the answer" and on my bad days, downright rude.
