Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Quality of oil?

#1 Post by nrobertb » Tue Jan 02, 2018 10:19 am

On the old forum there was an engineer who knew a lot about types of oil. If that gentleman is still around I have a question for him.

When you go to a gas station there will be a brand name quart of oil selling for $7.50. Right next to it is a no name oil selling for $3.50. Is the expensive one really any better?

I wonder if the $7.50 oil is Synthetic oil... that's what I use for my guns for lubricant.

There's more than just "oil" in "oil", the types, volumes & quality of the additives may well vary. Unfortunately there's so much hype about "magic" additives" its hard to sort the wheat from the chaff.
