Re: questions about oil
I never said that using more oil would compensate for poor manufacturing. I simply said that I choose to follow my manual when it comes to mix ratio. I'm not gonna sit here and debate the differences between engine manufacturer's recommendation and oil manufacturer's recommendation. I didn't ask for opinions about oil manufacturers recommendations. I asked if the oil I was using was ok, and if the mix ratio was ok. As I said earlier, someone whose mechanical knowledge and experience I greatly respect told me to follow the manual, even if the oil bottle says something different than the engine manual. I will NOT debate that with anyone here.
