It is true that they used to. It is also true that they don't anymore because of people spouting useless drivel saying that the beeswax could harm their motor. Fun fact, jet turbine oil still uses beeswax because we maintainers actually understand its use rather than almost putting companies out of business based upon mis-information.

I don't know anything about all the crap. I'm just a brand loyal consumer and prefer Castrol. I usually use walmart brand for when I know I've got a leak or am only going to run the oil for a few hundred miles for beak in with an additive.

Please do school on this! Cannot find any info on this subject online with google searches...

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

I've only ever had one really hot motor that I built with my dad but I would say it was fast but not race quality. It was still a factory block just blue printed and balanced with high quality internals. In that motor we only used royal purple fluids in everything. Who knows if it made a difference or not.

I'm just basing my level of interest on brand of oils on the amount of 200K-300K rides I've owned that went most of if not their entire life by running whatever oil was on sale when the odo turned over around 4000-5000 miles. no synthetics, no crazy this or that... Just what the best deal was at the time I walked in the store to buy oil and a filter. One car in particular my parents bought brand new and I bought off them and is still running around Az with 315K on it and it's had virtually every brand of oil known to man thru it. Change oil regularly and don't worry about it. Unless you really have a badass motor... Or stress over your oil purchases for your factory motor. LOL You can argue it all you want but it's not going to trump my first hand experience for me. My yota for instance, it had 215K on the V6 when I swapped in the current motor. Still ran great! I did the motor swap for more power and to fix oil leaks I was too lazy to fix. HAHA, you know the lazy route to fix an oil link is to just replace the motor! Duh... If you could've seen the intake from the air filter with the hole in it!!!! LOL, oil, pffft, how about dirt right thru the motor?

If I hadn't just changed oil in the expo friday night I'd be interested in oil for a good price but it'll be a while till I need it again. BTW, I used penzoil this time. YIKES!!! LOL

I was never all that hot on synthetic until I saw the cylinders on a toyota with a ton of miles on it and you could still see the machine marks. The thing still looked brand new. I agree though with maintenance, on time oil changes matters more than which brand you use. Filters on the other hand are another discussion all together..... Hahaha!

Can you get me rough height and diameter of the bottle? Also, is the tank full? Empty? somewhere in the middle? how much pressure if not empty? What's the max pressure on the regulated side of the gauge?
