    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> How would adding weight increase gas mileage? <hr /></blockquote> because by covering things it decreses drag and everyone knows drag is a killer on gas mileage. why you think everything on a aircraft is covered and streamlined.

    Switched to GC Lost Oil Pressure

    no such thing as a reliable electric guage. the merc 4.6 I had in my cougar had a faulty sending unit. might want to check that. other than that I would hook a mech guage up to it and see for sure. my oil pressure never changed with GC.

I had a 95 ranger and never burned oil and always ran great. no power what so ever but it got me to where I wanted to go. I will even say the...

    GC = Gold Castrol or Green?

    anything prior 0504 is green. anyhting 0504 and after is gold. the gold will work just the same as the green. its just most on here still have large stashes of green left. so they havent used the gold yet. but some people have and said its just as fine as the green. so use with no worries.
