I Chuckled

A guy on another forum (not diesel or vehicle related) asked what type of oil to use and this "guy" had this to say.....................

"01 so i am guessing you got well over 50,000 miles. i only use royal purple, BUT when you go syntheic you cant go back to regular oil.

royal purple oil change is normally double the price but you dont have to change the oil for 6000 miles. so it is the same.

i changed out all my fluids to royal purple and truck shifts and drives better.....

good luck"

i've heard people say dumb crap like that, just plain stupidity. i have one not automotive related. we were leaving my wife's sister's house in virginia and i was going to take a two lane back but my sister-in-law suggested i take the interstate because the deer are really bad and you don't have that problem on the interstate.

Oh crap.........here's some more....

"This is interesting to consider:

Your car has a thermostat and a cooling system. It runs at the same temperature, year round, except on start up. The only difference is that in the summer, it starts at a higher temp and warms up faster, which is better for your engine, and makes your oil perform better. Using different oils in different seasons is utterly pointless."
