Here is the UOA of the Penzoil Ultra 5w20 from my 2nd oil change that I sent to Blackstone a couple months back. (changed out the factory fill at 1989 miles)



I changed out the Penzoil Ultra & Motorcraft filter out for Amsoil signature Series 5w20 and Amsoil EA15K51 filter when I did the oil change. I will be interested to see how it does when I send it in for a UOA at my next oil change.

Sometimes I feel like an idiot and sometimes I know it... It's human nature to see it in others when we are blind to it in ourselves. It kind of depends on the question.

If I put an Estes rocket's exhaust into my air filter to pressurize it will it be the same as nitro injection?

If I add water to my gas tank is that the same as water injection?

How many pounds are in a foot pound, do I have to count to 12 while turning it?

I lowered my car by collapsing the springs with a torch and now it doesn't ride right, what happened?

I bought these cool 35 inch mudders on ebay, what do I need to do to fit them to my Focus?

Joe Blows web site claims 200 MPG on water with his new high tech turbine intake charger but all I got was a plastic propeller, how/where do I install it?

My wheel was vibrating so I super glued the back of it but it's still vibrating. how do I fix that?

My dealer said that I had a bump to bump warranty but I still feel the bumps, who do I contact about that?

My local service guy told me that oil never wears out so I only intend to top it off, you are all fools for wasting your money

When the tires wear down you have more rubber on the road so I use mine till I can see the cords for more traction.

I had a flat and used a tree limb to lift the car and now the side is all wrecked, cheap (insert name here) cars are not built like they used to be in my day.

My owners manual says to press Horn when I want to notify another driver but I can't find a button labeled Horn.

The dealer said that I have 3.2 turns lock to lock but nothing seems to lock.

I could go on but I am tired of my own ignorance.

The definition of stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.

Wow, glad FF has become such an incredibly kind community lately. Really guys?


Also PandT, the line is Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. But yeah, I'll be sure to stick up for you next time. Or not.

My comment wasn't directed at anyone in-particular... More of a response to your comment that there are no stupid questions, just un-asked ones. My comment was just a fact I learned from a professor in College. There are stupid questions!

Um, did I miss something - a second refresh seems to have downloaded the report but all I got the first time was an icon. Comet dude, 'insane' is not politically correct right now but if you call back I'll try to figure out what 'or not' means in any context that I envision from my posts. I meant no offense to anyone.

Agreed, hence the wild examples that I posted. No offence intended toward anyone.

Yes, there are in an absolute sense, stupid questions (why don't things fall upwards?). But my greater point being, that I'd rather someone feel embarrassed for a moment for having asked something that may have been asked before, or sound obvious because of inexperience and get a good answer--or be directed to it--than not asking because they're afraid of feeling stupid.


No offense taken.
