Val Christian had something right IMHO IMHO --- the word is "ART" not science.
The real thing here is TLC for your Rabbit. --- That spells TIME and lots of it.
Lubricants are important --- and do I like syn ??? yes ---but I do not like the price.
Did I investigate in depth ??? certainly. So it is an ART to do what is right.
The best of the crude is used for high end lubes like AVIATION ---lube. Why is that ?
--money. To wind up with an ashless lube --- it is done by selecting crude. So now
we wind up with two problems ----- good lubrication and good combustion. So does Dino
lubricate well ? yes. Does it burn well ? yes. Does syn lubricate well ??? yes.
Does it burn well ? ---- NO. So we are back to "ART".
Ask any refiner ---- and I bet they say --- a lot of art is involved. Like making BEER ---
do you think it is all science ?
Here are the numbers on ASH (sash) from Esso Exxon Mobil. EE 100 ------
Ash mass % NIL. Sulfur mass % 0.50.
So why do we not use that in diesels ? NIL sash sounds good ----- enter DA CRAP.
Dispersant for soot and things to neutralize acid ---- and so on. Are needed.
Name me a Syn fully certified for Aircraft engines ??? that should give you a hint of
what I am talking about. Piston engines.
The very properties that makes Syn so great ---is counter productive in certain applications.
ALL the syn's that I checked are loaded with ASH (sash).
NO API I do not use. Wisdom and experience ---- believe it. Better non API
oils may be available ----- now we are talking ARTs.
Cheap Dino like Loren said ----may coke up the top rings ---I agree . ---enter the ART.
Why ART ? because only you know the condition of use ---- Inuvik and Texas desert the same ?
nuff said. Here on the "WET COAST" moisture is a problem ---- that calls for a rust
preventative. -------- .
Someone here asked why the 6 month or whatever rule ??? super question I never
got a believable answer. But Hagar the artist thinks he knows.
Having a LOT of fun ---this is Rabitdosious weather . ---bet your ass.
Her is my Poetic side : You have to say DY like them Scottish ones. means to do.
"To dy and dy , and dy some more
and dy and dy your whole life thry
but nary dy a chore.
So is it work? never.
