I just got an issue of Princess Auto's latest 2 week sale, Oct 2-Oct 14. It is showing that Marvel Mystery Oil is available here. $8.99 for a 946 ml (1 qt.) bottle.
That's rather expensive $9 x 4 = $36 gal. plus taxes ($42 gal). If it's available in gallons it could be cheaper and I wonder if that would be a true gallon (4.54 L)
or the much smaller U.S.gallon ? I don't care how good it is, or isn't, at that price it can stay on the store's shelves.

I'll send you a qt. , well, when you least expect it and you can play around with it, its addictive for some of us motor heads. It must be that wintergreen aroma that captivates me ............ LOL  Some guys like to use ATF in the same vein, dump a qt. in your crankcase a qt. low and a 100 miles before an oil change to clean out the engine, I squirt into one cylinder engines while running a few times at a fast idle or rev it up a tad and that works for me, ATF is like a detergent oil, it seems to clean up the combustion chamber a little bit and make the engine run smoother, remove a little carbon. Sea Foam ? You can do the same thing with H20, it just creates hot steam in the combustion chamber, squirt a little H20 into the carb at a fast idle.

I use it for a variety of reasons FWIW but its not that expensive here in the states $ 3.88 for a qt. Like any product you have to see how it works for you. Lets not get Mike all wound up on oil additives, some people swear by them and some swear at them. Lucas oil has some good additive products and they are well accepted. If your drive train is in good shape and you change your fluids regularly you don't need any additives. 

Walmart has their own products and they sell a " Supertech " brand of synthetic oil that meets the SAE or Devos spec's ?  Supertech brand carb cleaner and brakekleen for $ 2.00 a can and I stock up on that.

The factory oil specification for a new Corvette or a Porsche is Mobil One, I use that in my engines but I'm okay with the Walmart Supertech synthetic oil lately. Ever since I started using synthetic 5W 30 in my SBC the oil consumption decreased by 50 % , you don't have change the oil as often and you get easier cold starts in the winter time, especially for a snow thrower but to each their own.

Playing around with my jewelry for the Fleetwood ROTY-A, I put a lot of thought into these and I make them look just right with the jewelry I have on hand, my time and my dime, shipping to Canada is $ 35 U.S.  If you get one consider yourself worthy and you passed Mike's background check, I had one more version of the original plaque to finish and I decided to make one more limited edition run with the new plaque design- eight total. All about friendship and having a few laughs amongst devoted Cadillac friends.

Yes, something must have been chewing a pine cone, corn on the cob style, and overshot a bit.  They've also found that hood insulation makes a good mattress and bed cover.

That looks like it was chewed.

After returning from a recent short run, I heard an unusual hissing sound at idle while the hood was open.  There was no apparent driveability issue; electronic controls often mask deviations within a certain range.  This is what I spotted!

BTW, the DIC-reported voltage was initially 14.9, which fell to 14.3 at hot idle upon returning home.  The Group 79 ACDelco battery is 14 years old, but looks brand new thanks to its location under the rear seat.  A battery analyzer estimates the internal resistance at 4.57 mΩ, which is higher than for a new, flooded lead-acid battery, but still within serviceable limits.  

In addition to battery condition, I suspect there's a significant difference in measurements made across the battery terminals immediately after a cold start versus observations made after a vehicle has been driven into a shop.

The internal resistance of a heavily sulphated, "dead" battery would be over 10 mΩ.  When a constant-current, 1 A charger is connected, the charge voltage quickly rises to 15.5 or higher.  It takes more voltage to push 1 A into an old battery.

Playing around with some jewelry, The Johnny is going to replenish my stash, I have plywood for seven total so this will be a limited edition run with the template, once the template gets used for number eight then its over. Vehicle specific is nice if you have the jewelry otherwise its mix and match, this is a CDV version. C'mon Rene, you like the new plaque design.
