Conversation with GC Elves

Okay, it was dream. Last oil change I had M1 5W-30 put in my Saturn SC2. So last night, while in la-la land, I heard soft music in the background. I think the song was, "Do you believe in magic". After a few moments, 3 elves appeared...they told me that my mileage on the M1 was nearing 3000 and while I could run synthetics much farther than that, I should change it. I asked him why and they explained that I had ran dino oil previously and the M1 was getting a bit dirty cleaning the engine up...he went on stating that it was "time for the conversion". The elves faded away...the music continued to play for a moment, then all was dark. So this morning I woke with a mission.I then drained the M1 out, saving a bit for a UOA to check and see if the elves were right about the M1 being a bit dirty. I replaced it with some M04 GC...it was strange, I kept hearing faint passages of "Do you believe in Magic" in the background but could not find a radio playing anywhere...strange. So then it was off to work...traffic was relatively light as I cruised down the four-lane street at a sedate 45 mph. No cars near me as I approached a green light. Suddenly, without any input on my part, the brakes slammed on, the car came to a skidding halt, stopping me at the stoplight that was green. I was fling against my seat belt but other that being surprised, not harmed. A car appeared, running thru the red light at a high rate of speed. And I heard that music faintly again. I turned around and headed back home, not a fence-sitting wannabe, but a true believer now. I retrieved the sample of the M1 I was saving for a sample and poured it into the container of used oil I was going to dispose of...no need to "check" the elves anymore...and strangely, as I poured the oil sample into the disposable container, I heard that music again....

I'm starting to believe that this GC-mania is an underground movement to tee off Exxon-Mobil people who might be trolling BITOG! Wanna see something funny? "Heh! M05 isn't green, and according to StinkyPete's VOAs, it has a different additive pack than M04! Run, run, buy more M04!" (hahahaha! Look at those crazy people run!)

Darrell, That was so beautiful...I mean like SO BEAUTIFUL....really!...so help me, John Sebastian. [Cheers!] Oh, by the way, the Elves told me to tell you, "You're welcome." Oh, and one more thing, you have a mission to perform now, don't you? [I dont know] Come now, you KNOW what it is.

You do, at times, get that hint of Twilight Zone music in the background. [Big Grin]

Actually all i have ever heard was, "Do you believe in magic"...and it's real soft, faint, like background music. I now know what someone means when they talk about a "Zen-like" state of mind. darrell sin city

The saga comtinues...i have around 500 miles on GC at this point. I have noted the following changes... 1. Power. A huge increase. Anything more than 1/2 throttle applications result in useless wheel spin. I attribute this to "The Power of the Elves" pushing the engine to new power heights...Pennzoil just dont have elves... 2. Gas Miliage. A huge increase. Miliage went from 24 city, 32 highway to well over 60 in both scenarios. Again, i attribute this to the assistance of the elves urging the engine to new heights of fuel economy. 3. Safety. I am much safer. See above post related to how the elves saved my life at a stop light... Well, okay, maybe this is a bit (?) of wishful thinking, but i truly have noticed the engine appears a bit quieter. Other than that, no real changes...(that i can openly discuss, the elves have a disclosure contract they made me sign!). darrell sin city
