Thanks Car51.


Yes, thank you. cheers

Watching that vid lead to many others as well. Imo, really shows the benefits of using a low first number and synthetic oil (depending on the brand)
Another Oshawa peep on here too. cheers

So, who here would be interested in a Harvest King 0w20 vs Mobil Super 5w20 cold pour?

Absolutely!

It really should be a little more scientific... timed through a funnel at the same temp or something.

Well, when I get home it should be around 20’ish F

The harvest king 0w20 will be there when I get home. smile

I have a funnel also and will have to research or someone can PM me on how to upload YouTube video

Thanks

Funnels make it a viscosity rather than pour point test...bit of a difference, but do the same thing every time, and you can compare.

My preference would be a steel ball bearing dropping through a cylinder of oil...could mount them side by side, and have magnetic release.

Ahh … that’s a bench race so we can place bets (until cheating sets in by day two) … wink
