Its funny. When that inverse oiler gets completely drained I can feel slightly less pep in the pedal when operating at light pedal pressures. It's almost like the engine has just that bit more "snap" with mmo in the inverse oiler.

It's not a good idea to leave it drained. It wears the metering seat in the oiler and disturbs the engine vacuum (as in 'leak'). If you are out of MMO or whatever, then disconnect the oiler and plug the hose to the engine.[/


I've learned to fill it every 2 weeks. At that point there's maybe 1/2 quart left in the tank. It holds 2 quarts.

Would you rather me post the results in this thread, or just send you a PM, Clevy? I'd be fine doing either one. It'll likely be Sunday or Monday when I report back about it.


Well, bad news... Weather strikes again, and I am not able to go home this weekend. It has snowed and sleeted at a minimum of 2 inches in some areas, and a maximum of 8 inches in the areas between my campus and my home. Add to that the fact that I'm 67 miles away from home, I'm not about to risk it. Especially when considering the ESDA (I have a free text msg subscription to my local ESDA) sends a text saying that travel is hazardous and is not advised. I will have to wait to tell you guys my results with the quicksilver tc-w3 until I'm able to get on the roads long enough for anything to report.

I have two of these, one is currently not in use but will be soon. I've had them since about 1984 and never had a problem with either one of them.
