no no no no no
did you not read hobos post at all?
ill jus let hobo make fun of you but i have a question for hobo about my own logic:
ok, better oil = less friction on the pistons correct?
so, less fricton=less heat generated by one turn of the piston, on the engine block itself, not in the combust chamber
so now the piston is moving more freely, it requires less feul to do the same amount of work correct?
and since less feul is required, this gets you an imporvement of mpg
but, since no more real work is saved, jsut the work of less feul, you gain little to none hp or tourqe?
i dont no if it makes good sense, but thats what i think of, i see less friction = less power needed to move the piston, that power is generated by feul, so therefore less feul is needed to get the same movement of the piston?
add, critisize, correct, i just want to know for sure
