YEAH!! I LIKE IT!!

YEAAH! WOOO!!! ( guess I'm up till sunrise now ....) YEAH!! :D

I'm going to invent an anti EPA engine. The goal is to cause the most emissions & use more fuel than any engine in history. I want it to smoke like a heavily loaded mechanically injected diesel. I shall unfurl it at the earth day parade! :idea: :D

Over the past eight months we have been building several Limousine Tenders for large private yachts. The 34' epoxy-fiberglass tenders are powered with Volvo inline six cylinder 370hp. diesel inbord/outboards. The white hull limo-tender was just launched this past week and went through several days of sea trials. The boat will carry 12 passengers and 2 crew with a top speed of 36.5 knots (41.5mph). I will post several pics.....

I was thinking the same thing. I thought we struck gold going for a ride in my dad's "little" 21' Sea Fox when he first bought it 2 years ago .... until we got on the water and looked around at all the bigger, better, faster boats all around. :lol: I ain't complainin' - I've been riding in much worse on land without money to even fuel the piece of junk. Just the fact that my poor ass has even been in a boat, I'm thankful for that.

But I REALLY want to go on THAT boat! :D toothy

Nice work Eddie - those things are MINT!!

The reason I trust them is because they back up their product with tests, white papers, etc.. and they ENCOURAGE you to send your own oil samples out for a lab test, either through them, or whoever. If the stuff is ruining your engine, the lab will pick up on it & tell you exactly what is failing, and why it's failing. If the lubricant sucks, they'll tell you that too.

When I first started selling the stuff, my brother bought a bunch of it for his Duramax. He's got it all tricked out, and it puts out around 600 ft.lbs. right to the ground. I told him he could run that oil for 15,000 miles ... and he didn't believe me ... so he sent a sample to a lab at 10k miles. They told him the oil looked (by "looked" I mean all the additives where there) just as good as any fresh oil does. They also found high levels of silica in the oil, which indicated his air filter was a piece of *censored*. Wouldn't have known that otherwise! 8-)

Here's some old iron I picked up this spring. I haven't had time this summer to work on it any, but I'm itching to get it on the road. Love those old Dodge trucks!

I have used AMSOIL ATF and gear lube with great results. I'm sure their engine oils are excellent as well, but my driving patterns (short trips) make it tough to get a return on the additional cost.

Your example of the air filter is a great example of using oil analysis as a "tool". In large equipment, an oil sample is much less expensive than an oil change...so it makes sense to pull a sample every couple hundred hours and make sure there is no glycol, dirt, fuel, or excessive soot in the oil...if it checks out, keep on running it. I recently got a report on a 844 cubic inch diesel that showed 6% fuel in the oil; the lab recommended checking the fuel injection system for problems. Sure enough, one of the injectors was pretty lazy and not atomizing the fuel properly. All injectors were replaced, and after 100 hours of operation another sample was pulled...no more fuel, good to go. 50 quarts in the sump on this one...it is important to get your money out of the oil.

Most major oil companies have an oil analysis service, but many people don't take advantage of it.
