Forgive me, but I don't know Bob. I was wondering who he is.

I started reading the first article on the home page and only got through a couple of paragraphs before I realized that "Bob" has not said anything about who he is, what he does and why he is enough of an expert to write articles about oil.

I'm not doubting anything, but to be fair, I'm not going to sign on to an accounting forum and read what a mechanic has to say about handling money. (I'm not signing onto an accounting forum anyway, just making a point.)

SO..... Who is "Bob"? And why is he qualified to write articles about oil?

Bob is Bob Winters a Schaeffers dealer. He was sick some years back and the board has changed hands but not the name.

As TaterandNoodles said, Bob is Bob Winters of Ocala Fla and wanted a website to educate the public about oil, and sell a little Schaeffer's oil on the side. He was very openminded about members mentioning other oils for comparison.

He was a prolific experimenter and did some very interesting things in his garage and backyard.

Later, Terry Dyson and others joined to talk about synthetic oils, additives, oil analysis, rsults of simple experiments, etc.

He had a stroke some time ago but appears to be recovering nicely. He sold the website and domain to Tony during his hospitilization. Tony passed away and now his wife oversees the website.

He is an avid fisherman as well.

I don't think he ever forsaw the tremendous growth of BobIsTheOilGuy.

I see you edited the OP.

This is an open forum and respectfully "BOB" is as qualified as anyone here who accepts points of interest as valid.

It's always a judgement call, some being easier to to make than others.

Plenty of good data to back up or contest opinions.

It's safe to say folks are here to contribute or pick brains.

OK let me say this a different way.
What are Bob's credentials? (or the author of the articles on the home page)
OK, he is a Schaeffers dealer. Anything else. Schooling, experience, scientist, triboloigist, what? How do I know that the things said in the articles are reliable information?
