I thought I had seen it all but apparently not so. Interesting read below too. I still want an HKS Exhaust though.

Formerly in marine engineering. In an earlier life I owned my own petroleum tank truck, and hauled for the majors and independent's.

I did that with Valvoline(20 winter-30 summer) in the latter 60s. And my engine didn't blow up either.

Ha no. Sucker born every minute. The Mitsubishi Evo guys that come in my shop have never mentioned this. Thankfully. Most of them run Redline, Amsoil or Royal Purple.
