I've read alot of posts of mos2 being perceived as beneficial. I'm simply asking if it will do harm to an engine. Might it have the placebo effect....no harm no foul.

I agree with how easily scratched the gauge and radio plastic covers are. How easily differs from car to car. After too many years of mistakes if you want to remove a smudge, I use a soaked microfiber cloth and very light pressure on the smudge on

It would be an interesting race between a V8 Supercar and a Cup car. The V8 Supercar has the better gearbox and handling, and a Cup car has about 200hp more. Here is when they had a Cup car and a V8 Supercar at COTA to promote the V8 Supercar rac

My portfolio has been hit hard this week, down more then 1%. BP and LNCO continue up nicely, everything else is red... OTOH: As of 9/01/14 It's up 17.25% YTD, and 35.12% for 1 year. I wonder what is going on with ARR? I may have to buy some more.

So, can we discuss some potential factors that would cause an oil to thicken up so much? BTW, here's one document on the subject, but it's fairly high level... http://www.engineaustralia.com.au/~engine/sites/default/files/SB008.pdf

RP certified oil is way over priced. Dont fall for the unsubstantiated advertising. Its All Bull. Last we saw their HPS oil wasn't a "technical" synthetic just warmed over dino glop like BP Syntec.

I don't know if Biodiesel causes that, but if that is the cause, I'd switch to an HDEO with a higher TBN and see if that fixes the problem. Checking M1 web site just now the TBN of ESP 5w-40 isn't given, but by way of comparison Delvac 1 ESP 5w-40 g
