Re: Synthetic Oil & Stuff
A friend of mine works at Menard's. On Feb 1 last year, it got down to
-39 below. While he was at work it was dead so he decided to try a
little experiment. He took two bottles of motor oil, one Mobil 5W-30 and
one Mobil 1 5W-30 and stuck them outside. Two hours later he brought
them inside. Mobil 1 poured slowly. Mobil was SLUSH, it didn't pour.
He's run Mobil 1 ever since. True story.
Addition tidbit, Christmas day, I got up at 10 to go to the grandparents
house 50 miles away. 20 below out, Audi started after 3-4 seconds of
cranking as always. Not in a garage, or plugged in. Took off to
grandmas, half way there, roads are clear, no one around, I canned it.
Drove 100+ mph for about 5 minutes, hit 120 at one point. Had to slow
down at that point because the windows were frosting up and the defroster
couldn't keep up. I run Mobil 1, 5W-30.
