Me neither.. But the way I see it... $11 a quart for the oil I'm using is CHEAP compared to the 4 years of buying / selling & doing side work to come up with the $15,000 I spent to build my engine....

I think that was actually measured by a sample, not a stated amount. Be interesting to see a current sample.
