You've only gotta get away with it for a year or so & then screw it if you get busted. You're rich & gone! :lol:
I don't think there is any legal liabiilty once you get exposed. None of those labels has an API "donut" on it so buyer beware. The 5 unopened quarts of TSC Traveller non-detergent HD 30 that arrived with my 8N has no "donut" on the label and says this on the back:"CAUTION This oil is rated API SA. It contains no additives. It is not suitable for use in most gasoline powered automoble engines manufactured after 1930. Use in modern engines may cause unstaisfactory engine performance or equipment harm."
Presumably "modern" engines is anything newer than 1930. So why do you suppose TSC is selling it and what are the buyers using it in???? It's going to last me a long time because in my shop about the only thing it gets used for is as an assembly lube for non-engine parts....
PS> The chances of it actually being tested and "rated SA" are zero. That rating is so obsolete no lab in the country is equipped to do the testing. And that is why there is no API "donut" on the label. This post was edited by TheOldHokie at 09:25:01 10/27/13 2 times.
