jon said: (quoted from post at 11:42:29 10/27/13) It was only a matter of time before somebody started screening burnt oil through a cheesecloth, adding a little new oil & selling it for 3 or 4 bucks a quart.

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....

TOH

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.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

good reading

You got me curious enough to walk out to the shop.

Checked out the DG branded straight 30w I have on the shelf,

for my squirt can and occasionally I use it as a flushing oil mixed with ATF, MMO on tractors I get where I don't want to pull the pan. VERY short term. ya know, a pass around the field until it's warmed up good, then dump it.

over $2 a quart now, for years they sold it at $1.25.

yep, same deal

pre 1930 warning, says no additives, SA rated, no emblem.

Guess I'll make the longer trip to walmart from now on and stock up on their cheapest, for my throwaway oil jobs

As a flush it is fine - as an engine oil it is pitiful. If you want a mono-grade oil to run in your engines there are plenty of decent ones out there. Look for a good SAE 30 HD engine oil. Valvoline for one makes a line of premium conventional oils available in mono and multi grades. All of them are API service class SM/SL.
