Something Cool They Showed Us at Chevy Today.

well... sometimes if the shop is real dead the corprate guys at chevy will pay someon to come in and tell us what to look for so we can sell stuff better...

and today they did just that

they brought us 2 gmc 2500's with 100,000 miles on them...

truck A.. had its oil changed every 3 K... full syntec for 100'000 miles

truck B had reg oil changed every 10% on the gadge

the motor in truck B was a block of sludge tho it still ran it was much less efficent then truck A

truck A's engin looked like it had just been rebuilt... it was THAT CLEAN
ran like a too... no shakes like it just come off the line


yet another reason to change yer oil evey 3K



mods... tinted taillights, 1000 watt alpine mono amp, 2 10 inch alpine type "r" subs, basspro slot ported box, xm radio, alpine 6x9 rear speekers, alpine 6.5 front speekers (both type "s",09SS front bumper and lip,black factory headlights, 12k foglights, 10k headlights, slp catback,fe5 suspension with sportlines,black carpet, painted plastics (black) huge custom pink monster sticker... and ofcourse.... BLACKED OUT!

but if your using that truck as it should be used then changing the oil more often is a great idea.

Yes, like the experts say, oil is cheap engines are not. And you get what you pay for. I always use full synthetic to reduce the demand for real oil.
I was watching a show and the show said that if 10 percent of America would start using full synthetic, the demand for real oil would decrease by 10 million barrels a year.
