People who really know, know they don't know much. So you are definitely on the right track.

It definitely depends on what the topic is about!

Yeah, but if you’re a car or truck maintenance freak, this is a great place to hang out.

If it's any consolation, the majority of folks that formulate oil don't know that much either. They just know a bit more than your average bloke.

You're being modest. I've learned a lot from you and many others on this site. However, your sentiment is refreshing.

Haha I so agree.
They guys in Chemical Synthesis often know lots about the chemical and tribological functions. But nothing about practical applications
Formulators like to take cool and often expensive chemistry to make up some exciting "claims" based on the tiniest points of differentiation.
Marketers generally don't have any idea what the chemistry is or does, they only want to know what kinds of things they can do to make a cool commercial about.
End users generally don't care. Chemistry doesn't matter - we just want something that works.
BITOGERS spend hours worrying about the minutiae differences is one or two published data-points but only if the oil is readily available and on-sale at Walmart.

The smartest people I know, know very little.
They all have 2 things in common though. They know where to source accurate information, and they listen.
