i agree and I also have multiple degrees (big deal) and so far english is a skill I never liked nor gave a care about. Math is where engineers are good, not english. Some people make a point out of their degrees and it makes them feel important. Who cares. Mine are all in a box if you want them.

Feel free to correct it if it makes you feel warm and fuzzy all over. Again worthless effort in my eyes.

My boss is great with spelling but can't design anything either.

Back on topic: At toyota.com like at Lexux.com there is also an Owner FAQ that explains:
http://www.saber.net/~monarch/faq.jpg

1. The benefits of synthetic motor oil are marginal at best because natural petroleum oil does an outstanding job.

2. It's risky to extend oil change intervals when using synthetic

3. It's risky to switch back and forth between synthetic and natural petroleum oil.

Hmmm, perhaps that proves my point. He can't design anything and yet, HE'S your boss. Probably earns more than you do too. Guess that spelling is good for something after all.

I hope he makes more then me with the 1.5 hour communte (one direction). As I told him 3 weeks ago, I have no need for him. Too bad if there is a layoff, he is the first to go with no skills. Anyone can be a babysitter. I could go on and on, but drop it since you will lose.

1A. Define marginal since the delta between the two oil tests I posted are far from maginal.
2A. risky is taken out of the equation if you, the user, uses a good oil
3A. risky ??? It was back in the old days. Again time to step-up to at least the 1990's.

Wink

Got this link from LOC titled "Everything you ever wanted to know about motor oil" Perhaps this will at least help calm some? Let's quash any personal attacks from anyone including age, profession & the like........guy's......come on now.....what's next? Insult each other over the model Lexus we drive? The only other alternative I have is to tell a really stupid & corny joke to try & break the ice here gents! .......I have to warn you however.......it involves an octopus & bagpipes & I really don't want to go there at this point. lol
