Engine oil

64 subscription cannels have I on youtube and only one person has produced a new video to keep this timeslot going (of course it’s not their sole purpose … but … never mind).

In any case, modern engines (and we know the Japanese are masters of high quality engineering), as well as their lubricants, are made of much better materials than they were 50 odd years ago, when I started thrashing mother's Mk1 Mini around ...
