Like the dimples on a golf ball.

Actually mythbusters busted this one, but found that a dimpled car is more efficient. Given a simple shape such as a ford Taurus.
Yet they wash the out of airplanes to reduce drag

I have used Rotella for a good 10k miles and I was getting 31MPG +/- on my FZ1. Last oil change, I switched to Mobil Syn., I have been getting 37MPG +/- ever since.

I used AMSoil on my wife's Camry 05, and it runs pretty smooth although I am only getting 2 more miles per gallon compared to before, but still better. So next oil I am gonna switch to AMSoil on my FZ1 and see what happens.

I use Dumonde Tech Full Synthetic Race oil. Anyone who can prove to me that its not the best oil. I will by them 5 oil changes..

But...a 45.00 oil change does sound mighty fine... I pay alot of money for my oil but to me and ALL of my friends back home, we swear by it, after switching from the others!
