Question: Why use an oil stabilizer with a synthetic oil? Comment: This is a classic example of why NOT to use an oil additive that has viscosity thickeners in it.

Thanks for the test info guys. I do have one thought however. Why does my oil never look foamed or anything when it is changed? I just have a doubts about the "real world" viability of the test. It was not in a motor with the heat and bearing clearances and I have my doubts. Thanx Joe

If you need an oil this heavy, the Amsoil Series 2000, 20w-50 would be a better way to go .... TS
