Wonder how many of the designer oils are unique blends vs. a new label ?

that test is called the one arm bandit for many reasons. It is a BS way to test any oils. You can use honey and or olive oil and have the same the results. This video has been out for years.

A person many years ago shown me how they can make any oil look and score the best using the one arm bandit no matter of brand and weight. The wear scar - total BS - I can pee in that cup and have the same results.

Amsoil does a good job of explaining some of this as well.

watch the vid fully 100 % and you learn a trick or 2/

I don't think you can beat the price!! In my 500 efi's just seems like my pressure drops down a little after about 15 hours of use with the merc stuff seems like it breaks down or something. I like to change oil about evry 20 hrs the valvoline is almost half the cost
