You are the only one who knows that oil can be tested.

Again.. what does racing engines have to do with 5000 miles of highway driving?

But then you KNOW everything :)

3literbeater obviously you are not very edjucated about motor oil. why not do a little research before bashing people who do know what they are talking about. All of the comments that you feel are stupid and were posted by stupid people are true. Try a little research on the subject and you may be surprised to find that the only stupid person or as you said "moron" is YOU! It's quite obvious that you have no clue as to what you are talking about.

I have not drained my oil for over 38,000 miles, and have had no problems whatsoever. I do have the proper filtration and use blackstone labs for oil analysis every 6 months. I must be a moron for using todays technology to my benefit...as to using the technology of the '70's that you seem to be stuck in!

After reading all the responses; it has become apparent that there are a lot of knowledgable people with good information and some that have personal opinions. Whether the opinions are hear say or fact is beside the point.... No matter how much factual information you provide a person.... You may never sway him from his opinion !!!

THIS HORSE ("TOPIC") HAS BEEN BEAT TO DEATH AND KICKED WHILE IT WAS DOWN !!!!

Can we now move onto more educational discussions.... THANKS !!!!

OR 4x4
