It may be an April Fools joke, but it is also a dead-on parody of BITOG.

Truly, I almost did this on my last car purchase thinking of buying some German or French car that used a 5w40 "real oil". Then I thought twice ... .

I have decided that 20 grade oil does not protect my Focus well enough.

I am going to run 30-70 year round!

I have 2 of these, a 1986 GLHT and a 1987 NA. Will run forever on any oil, even used oil in a pinch. Just change the head gasket every 100k miles or so.



The Omni and Horizon were the first front-wheel drive cars in the Dodge and Plymouth lineup, the first front-wheel drive transverse engine production car in the North American market, and among the first American built front-wheel drive cars to sell in large numbers. The Omni almost reached the 1 million unit mark, but production stopped in 1990; with a total of 961,508 Omni/Horizons assembled.

Which were, of course, attempts by Chrysler to clone the already popular Volkswagen Rabbit. Chrysler purchased Rabbits and disassembled them in order to reverse engineer whatever they could. Chrysler didn't have a four cylinder engine they could use at first, so they purchased Rabbit engines for several years until they could build an engine of their own.

I owned a 1979 model, a two-tone green four door. It was without a doubt the worst quality vehicle I have ever owned. Except for the Volkswagen engine, that wasn't too bad.

Great thread, and I've nearly posted same before...if I buy a case of TGMO, does that justify me buying a BRZ Subaru ?

Had similar thoughts at work yesterday when one of my co-workers was talking about his dyno forays...in my words, he'd achieved "tyre pressure boost crossover"...more pressure in his manifold than in his tyres...32psi in his Mitsubishi on E85.

You are crazy. Yugo specified 20W40. I know it because I had one. Sadly, that was before I knew about BITOG and used 10W40 instead.

The Dodge Omni/Plymouth Horizon was designed by Chrysler Europe, the former Simca and Rootes; most of the engineering appears to have been done in France, where Simca made best-sellers and the inspiration for the Volkswagen Rabbit.

(Full story on its development - as told by the design team).
http://www.allpar.com/omni/horizon-c2.html

With the 2.2 liter engine and a manual transmission, they were quick, but as economy cars, they did not have a reputation for speed. The Omni GLH and GLHS would change that - for those in the know.

Check it out. Facts are facts....

I often peruse craigslist looking at Fords for my FL-400S and other equivalent oil filters. I do not have a ford.
