Ah, Amazon.
Did they give you a choice of a refund or another jug?
You really wanted the oil, not the money.

Re: Advertising

They gave him the option of getting it somewhere else or reordering it.
I've been hearing the term high mileage oil referred to oil for motors with high mileage on them, but also oil to use for 15k miles or more miles between changes. I doubt the same product would be used for both applications. I don't think it's the advertising but people using the term. Seems to me that would lead to some confusing conversations.

Re: Advertising

I reordered, and the new jug came last week.  Changed the oil on Sunday.  The jug says it's for engines with over 75K on the odometer.

And the internet says the oil swells rubber seals slightly, causing them to do a better job of sealing after they are all old an dry and cracked.

Might be jinxing m'self, but...

Cherry Bomb doesn't leak any oil.  179,000 miles and no oil leaks is great.  No transmission leaks, no pwr steering leaks.  Doesn't lose brake fluid.

Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm using reglar ol' 5w30 Castrol, btw.  I've had older,  leaking engines respond well to thicker oils.  I had a 71 Pontiac GT-37 that leaked oil like a sieve, it only lost half as much 20w50 as it did reglar oil.  It also burned more oil than the retreating Iraqi army, like a quart per 25 miles.  That was also helped by the 20w50.

Re: Advertising

You're lucky, leaks can be such a pain in the ass you don't want to drive it unless you have to.

Sort of advertising... If the government hadn't been drying up the rubber supply I might not have been born.

Re: Advertising

Probably shouldn't think about the difference between "scrap" and "used" rubber.

Re: Advertising

"Rubber" is so crude.

I prefer the term 'manhole cover'...

Re: Advertising

During the 50's and 60's we heard a lot about diseases, vaccines, and what seemed like wild medical procedures mostly because of TV.
At the end of the 60's they started advertising prescription meds directly to the public.
People were a little overwhelmed with all this strange information and had questions with no answers.
Some ad agency came up with a plan, have a Doctor write a book that nobody could buy with answers out the wazoo.
The way to get it was with a subscription to Moneysworth Magazine, then it was free.
One MD writing about every field of medicine hmm...https://cellar.org/images/smilies/unsure.gif

Throw in some scare tactics like you'll die when no doctor will come and you didn't get this book!

Re: Advertising

This Coke promotion offering sizeable discounts on some popular car accessories was a good deal.
I don't remember seeing it which is odd .I should thing it would have been in some of the major automotive magazines. Talking to a buddy we concluded it must have been a regional thing, but talking to people in various parts of the country nobody has ever seen it. Granted I haven't found people from every nook and cranny who are old enough to have seen it, and there are 68 coke bottlers in the country so that many territories.

Yeah, and stuck in about the time I was working at Kanuika's speed shop so I should have been aware of it.

Re: Advertising

I wondered where they would place this add as I didn't think HotRod, LIFE or Popular Mechanix would work.
One Canadian told me they were in her aunt's movie magazines.

Re: Advertising

What you see (in ads) is usually not what you get. Often it's, well not like pictured in the ad but about what I expected.
But sometimes it's, why those dirty bastards, what a rip off.
