Bought 3 qts of 5W40 and 4 qts of 0W30 to put in my GTO. I already have the 5W40, and strangely enough this stuff smells like whiskey........

Jason, I ran across that stuff the other day by accident when I was googling for motor oil info. Looks like it may be a contender. Appears to be a synthetic even by the standards of the most devout of the Orthodox Synthetic Faith. Of course, at $8.49. per quart, if it's not at least as good as Mobil 1, Redline or Amsoil on at least one oil quality criterion, it seems like a questionable value. Still cheaper than Synlube... BTW, did you get it at the "liquidcosworth" site, or do they have a reseller? I notice on their "buy" page they also have: COSWORTH PERFORMANCE ENGINEERED COOLANT ADDITIVE and COSWORTH PERFORMANCE ENGINEERED FUEL TREATMENT I wonder about that coolant additive. Is it supposed to be another "Water Wetter" ? Be interesting to have someone test these. Not me. My wife needs the money for shoes...

I just had a vision of an LS-x stroker pounding through the Texas Hill Country with Pat Traver's "Snortin' Whiskey" blasting out the windows. [Big Grin] [ March 15, 2006, 06:44 PM: Message edited by: 427Z06 ]

An oil that smells like whiskey; OMIGOD! Nirvana. Tift Merritt on the CD, 6000 RPM in 4th on the on-ramp in the 533i. Going to work is fun.

Maybe some of the Cosworth folks kept some Jack Daniels in oil bottles so they could pour themselves some on a slow afternoon at work, and their boss wouldn't notice since all he sees are oil bottles lying around. Then one day a new guy didn't know what was in them and packed them up to be shipped out. [Big Grin] Pity the first hardworking Cosworther to discover he was drowning his sorrows in a tall glass of 5W40. [No no]

Heck, that does it for me. Less expensive than the single malt I'm sippin' on now. [Big Grin] Seriously, it's sounds like a fine product. I'll have to give a try in the near future. Thanks for the info. [Coffee]
