See if he has any recent virgin oil analysis data to add to his article.
It raised a lot of questions when it circulated around the cyberworld
last year, but a year of technology is a long time. Oil formulations
have continued to change (for the worse?). He's probably got the low
down and his recommendations would be worth knowing-- especially down
lower on the totem pole where those of us live who don't run Big Red,
