quote:I was not trying to be smart, it depends what a consumer is willing to spend. There are many blends out there for over $2.00/QT almost $3.00/QT. People here know they have little synthetic in them but people don't and are willing to spend some more $$$ for the product even though its not really worth it. The local Mobil mart sells Mobil 1 for over $6 a quart.

quote:Well I didn't mean to imply it was a "wonder-oil", but it is very good. And as you may be aware, I always seem to say as long as its a good quality oil you can use it. IMHO, no one needs to use any special oil or any special anything, just flush once and awhile and change often to keep clean. As far as why I don't say, several reasons, one is that I just started selling it, and I no site supporter... there are more reasons, but I'm sure most of you have some kind on opinion already if you looked at my testing results and "Driving conditions"... The one right now is a CF/SJ, I do have some newer specs but I still have a lot of the oil from a long time ago I'm getting to... Often times I mix or I Fill with one and top with another, sometimes mixing three buckets in one when they start getting down too low, or pouring in my quart bottles. So also you are not getting a true representation of ONE OIL... like I said there are several reasons, But I think that it does okay.
Originally posted by sbc350gearhead: Robbie, I have read your posts about whatever "wonder oil" that you are using, but even after questions about it, you still haven't stated what it is. Is there a reason you are keeping it such a secret?
quote:I don't. I pay less for it per mile when you factor all the factors in with the cost of the oil. (i.e. clean clean engine, better MPG, good tab tests, etc.)
Originally posted by GROUCHO MARX: Robbie, You can get M1 for $4 a quart. You can get Pennzoil dino for $1.70 a quart. Why do you want to pay more?
quote:I haven't seen that price in WallyWorld for over a year Also as far as Group III-I think other than cold weather performance-it really can't go extended drain intervals as well as a PAO.
