    No question in heavy duty applications such as racing or heavy hauling (motor homes, etc..), that one will see a difference in wear between premium synthetic oils and standard dino oils. But for the average person motoring down the highway, does it make a difference?

    There was a story a few years ago about a guy who put one million miles (all highway driving) on his 96 Chevy pickup using standard Penzoil of all things. Eight sets of tires and a few transmissions, but he never touched the engine. Penzoil bought him a new truck and used his for advertising.

    I suspect for most of us, other parts of our bikes and cars will fail long before the engine wears out on dino oil.

    It's one of those subjects that'll just never go away.

    Because they're to much fun. People can get more passionate about oil than the makes and models of the vehicles themselves.

    There's nothing more passionate than uninformed/misinformed passion

    I'm a firm believer in the "I'm right and you're wrong" strategy of arguing a point.

    This is good stuff, camguard has invented something new that no one knows about? I've reman'd, overhauled, rebuilt, replaced, zero timed, many types of aircraft engines, even glider engines . I never used an additive one, hell the heavy iron never even changes oil, thousands of cycles, just add to!

    The bottom line to me is change your oil, regularly, even if you get stuck in bum fudge ridge one day and you just have to change your oil, and the only thing available from the Sack-o-Suds is BRAND X, well you have two choices, I'll let you all make that decision. This could be a start of a new thread........"that's a funny".

    Cessnadog if you ever have to rebuild, replace, reman, overhaul, zero time, or what ever one does to an airplane engine, break-in is the most critical part of that process.

    Once again, good stuff!!!!!

    I've always used one or the other straight. Aermotor for speed and power or Hammond for the sweet sound. Would it hurt to mix them?
