Can synthetic oil ruin my engine? Is Dino Oil better?

Synthetic motor oil was first made during WWII to replace hard-to-get petroleum-based motor oil. Might be better to start a freshly rebuilt engine on regular oil, because full synthetic is sometimes too 'slippery' to let the rings & cylinder bores wear-in correctly.

Synthetic is better. Use Mobil 1. It will blend with any other oil that has been used previously.

That must have been a hell of a lot dinosaurs!
They must have been roaming the earth like fleas on a mangy old dog!

I've often wondered what created the vast amounts of oil that is pumped from the depths of the oceans.
Possibly whales?

You were lied to throughout most of your days studying History, Social Studies, etc. A lot of information is left out, and even more has a spin on it.

Its biomatter, both flora and fauna. So yeah dinosaurs are in there but its majority going to be plant matter.

It's funny you mention that. A few years ago my wife and I went to Niagra Falls for vacation.

We we're staying on the Canadian side and decided to go for a drive one day. We we're heading out to lake Ontario when we went by Fort George. We stopped to take a tour. They gave a very nice history of the fort with a British perspective.

Right across the river in New York is Fort Niagra. We decided to cross back into the US and take a tour of Fort Niagra. They also gave a very nice history of the fort from the US perspective.

You would have thought they were talking about two physically different places and 100's of years apart in time, not two forts that you could almost throw a rock from one to the other.

Somewhere in the middle you will learn the truth.

Picture of Obama drinking a Pepsi...


FoxNews "Obama declares war on Coke!"
MSNBC "Pepsi clearly the best, if you don't agree you are racist"
CNN "Tonight on the Situation Room we discuss the escalating Cola War"
BBC: "35 killed in drone strike in Syria"
