RE: Mail Delivery Problem

Hi Gang,

	This was originally "Marvel Mystery Oil" and I've been trying to
respond to Dan((GY3WSX@VM.SC.EDU), but this message has been bouncing since
last Thurs. so I'm sending it via the list...I apologize...

>       I'm a little confused.  Did you add Marvel to your gas tank, or in the

Hi Dan,

        Sorry for the confusion: I add the Mystery oil to the oil, but only
just before an oil change; I don't run it all the time.

>       I have added Techron (by Chevron) to the gas tank before, and I was told

        Ditto, I also add Techron to my last tank before an oil change and run
the tank low before refilling it and doing the change...why risk contaminating
fresh synth.??

        I'll be interested to hear what you think. I think I remember that you
are running Amsoil in the tranny and diffs. now, like I am. And I have been
thinking of trying the Redline in the tranny anyways; to see if I can get by
this not down-shifting into 1st except below about 7mph. So, please share your

                                        Happy motoring,
