This thread is spiralling out of control (as most threads do).

I like peaches. I like bananas too.

I prefer both fresh. Not canned.

don't think she has seen the big five-oh yet. i will tell you this. she's not too old, and certainly is old enough.

you ask, "Is that a vagina in her armpit?" i say, "bonus." armpits is like butt cheeks--everybody has two.

could be a robot. i hear they got 'em now. she looks real to me. mrs. stepford.

eye makeup is a little weird but i'd change her oil.

yee-ha!

Synthetics are compatible with dino oil. That's how you get synthetic blend. Having said that, I did read someplace that mixing brands may not be the best thing for your engine due to the different additives that the maker puts into their oil. But in your case it was very little, kinda like topping off the oil. Should be ok.

i think i may have drunk the kool-aid as to mobil 1. i'm thinkin' i should just go back to dino oil. usually i go to wally-world and find a name brand that is on sale and go with that. shell rotella, valvoline, castrol. i got some mobil 1 and had no problems but it is pricey. $$$ is not a consideration when it comes to maintaining bb but...why waste $$$. oil is oil. bb doesn't know or care. maybe i should get some of that purple drank stuff? whatcha think?

water, water, everywhere,
nor any drop to drink...

I don't know BB, oil brand and type is strictly a personal preference. I bought some royal purple and wasn't impressed. Anybody can add purple food coloring to anything. I'm currently using Amzoil but I have no data to base that use on.

water, water, everywhere,
and all the boards did shrink...

when is the last time that you have heard of someone complaining about an engine failure because of a oil failure. this is supposing that the oil had been changed within the proper mileage intervals and was the proper oil for the engine; 10W30 for the S2000 and an interval of 3000 to 6000 miles.



the water, like a witch's oils, (wonder if they got it in 10W30?)
burnt green, and blue, and white.

bb, I'm using synthetic oil throughout my cars for the piece of mind, extended drain intervals and slightly better mileage. Dino is fine for these cars too, I would probably go with the German Castrol if you can find it.

[QUOTE=bbcricketta;214113]when is the last time that you have heard of someone complaining about an engine failure because of a oil failure.

Actually, I remember many moons ago that several Indy car people
noted that they seem to have a failure right after a change. Of
course engines and oils have come a long way.

I also read an SAE paper on oil tests in the early days of M1.
Their conclusion was that at 20K miles the Mobil 1 was
about equal to dino oil at 7500 miles. Again, things
can change.

i am not saying it can't happen. i am sure that it has happened. racing applications are different. i am talkin' normal street use with regular changes. if you use the wrong oil it can mess things up quickly. if a company's oil starts blowing up engines, they aren't going to sell much oil. the market takes care of things in this respect. this kind of word gets around quick. you do wonder though. if you read some of the oil labels and see their guarantees and disclaimers (lawyerese) it leads one to think that there may have been problems in the past.

i hear that Mobil 1 ain't the same Mobil 1 that it used to be. 5000 is about as far as i want to go without a change. used to be 3000. i guess that if there was one best oil, we would all be using it. only thing i know for sure is that we need tolerance and lubrication. there, i said it.

I take my S to Valvoline and stand over the mechanic. I've done this since one idiot that was flirting with my daughter and forgot to put the plug back in and destroyed her engine.

Is this really rocket science?

I see no soft pornography here. womenz in bikinis is available for viewing at any public beach or river. Cant see how that qualifies. This peach on the other hand, is clearly perverse:

maybe you guys in WY have a different definition of **** than some of us. they is a lot of sheep in WY, and cowboys. i have not posted, nor seen on site, anything that remotely resembles pornography, hard or soft. i detest ****. it is debasing. the female form is a beautiful thing in any mode of dress. in fact, the less the better; but cover it up in public. i'm a prude like that. you are right about one thing: this site is great.

My old RX7's had the oil filter on top of the engine point straight down! And you to add oil every fill up due to the fact that the oil metering pump shots oil into the engine to lubricate the apex seals. It was on top of an air-to-water oil cooler. Just grab it and twist it off. It's back by the brake reservoir.
