Just for something to watch... Also what oil analysis looks like in a lab.

Stevie, no offence buddy, but did you even watch the bloody video yourself??? How is that Top Gear? Literally the first two seconds of the video show FIFTH GEAR Logo. duh

Thanks for sharing though. I remember this vid from some time ago. Cool to see it again.

The site the video was on quoted it as Top-Gear so I used that in the title. I realized after it wasn't Top-Gear but I can't change the title now... Sorry about that. thumbsup

Just surmising, but I'm getting the impression the title of the video alone is preaching to the choir. hide

There are multiple technological errors in that video.

Do not use this for educational purposes where accuracy about factual info is vital.

Yup. Mix of good and bad info -- mostly good, but enough bad to be significant.

I'm sure the people at the lab were yelling at their TVs when they saw the finished result!

Seen it before...a half second quicker on new oil, and new oil alone...imagine what that would do for CAFE credits.

More specifically, thinner oil makes your car slower. You heard it here first.

I'd quite like that to be true, though it would upset A LOT of people.

Sadly, though I havn't seen many 5th Gear "tests" all the other ones I can remember seeing have been utter bollocks, too.

While I know it would be impossible to address everyone's psychological nuances in a mass distributed video, I'd still include something like:

"Listen you imbeciles, nobody likes to pay any bill and many of you think every mechanic is a dishonest thief but that doesn't give you license to neglect your car.
Even if you're uncomfortable with this you should develop an appreciation for dirty vs. clean."

Obviously this doesn't apply to BITOGers.
