Default Somewhat OT - Oil information page

Hello to all -

Was doing some research on the best oil for my pickup (Ford F350 diesel), and found this page: http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/

It has a wealth of information on oil, additives, tests, and machine lubrication in general that makes for some interesting reading and a good overall resource. Give it a look for all of your answers to oil, lubrication, etc.

Thumbs up Re: Somewhat OT - Oil information page

Thanks for the link Chris. Another one on the favourites list.

Did you check out the oil additive test? I haven't used additives and definately wont now.

Simon.

Simon -

Yes, it was the first thing I read. Adding Lucas oil additive would defintely wreak havoc on the Ford's diesel - the injectors are activated with a high pressure internal oil pump, and that amount of air would likely shut them down.
