Tom P,

I think that was the answer I was trying to give you to begin with. I have been running an oil that is deemed too high in ash content for 10 years and 60k miles now. No boom yet... Since the guarantee on a reliabilt is less than half that number I would say that the claims that these are unsafe oils are over reaching and under "realtime" analyzed. There's conjecture and there's fact. My motor has run awesome for 10 years. That is a fact. No study can undo that. There's too much info and warnings our there by pencil pushers that contradicts our eyes and personal experience and there's plenty that have been "influenced" by outside forces.

Hmmm, regional sales guy from XYZ oil would like to increase sales to a certain demographic (bus and two stroke diesel owners) so he "invents" a study that says his competitor ABC oil has an inferior product. That is not verifiable nor unbiased empirical data to base a 'truth" upon.

Before everyone starts a flame fest over this remember who we're talking about here... Big Oil. Spare us all the BS and rhetoric that they give a %$#@$ about us or our nation.

Wow fortyniner was talking about .9 ash content of the Coastal brand of oil compared to the Delo .85 brand and here we are at 1.5 the oil companies can post all the BS they want but no C rated oil will be over 1% ash and in 2013 that drops to .5 I am already buying Delo 400 with .5 ash content as Ripley says believe it or not.

You nailed it RickB lol 

good luck

"Guys would kill their grandmother for their stockholders..."    Really? i have some stock in 3 different oil companies and i sure ain't getting rich off of all of their high profits. 1-2 percent dividends, so who is getting the big bucks? Smiley
