Thanks for this mind blowing article. You are too good with your field of expertise or subject. Do you take up classes or how did you learn to write articles so well. I just hate to miss a day without reading the articles.

engine oil cooler made from aircond cooling coil????nice.... =)

Hi,

Have to ask how come my engine oil get lesser when using semi synthetic (10W-40) compare to use mineral engine oil (20W-50). Any idea?

Hi,

I assumed that you are having an old engine that burns oil due to worn piston rings, cylinder bores and valve guides. A fully synthetic oil, being a thinner oil will get pass the worn parts and end up being burnt off much faster than ordinary mineral oil. So I suggested that it is better for you to use mineral oil. If you experience blue smoke from the exhaust, an addictive that thickens the oil may help.
