The one thing about GC is that it doesn't seem to cause more leaks once it's inside the engine though. The small oil leak I've got in my car is no worse off than before, and perhaps even a tad better (I'll know for sure at the end of the interval)
Is that a Canadian Skunk, Pat ?

Originally posted by MolaKule: TMP (a triester) and most ester oils have this uncanny knack for creeping and spreading if there is any way it can get past a bottle seal. I have a heck of time keeping TMP and other polyolesters from flowing down the sides of containers, once a seal is broken. As I have stated in other threads, esters are their own surfactants. The GC most likely contains complex esters so once a film is established, its gonna try to flow and spread. NEO, Mobil, and Amsoil do the same.
