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'...
