That is a good price. I get V-twin from a lubrication wholesaler. Last batch was $46.00 a case. The 10 cases just in last week $54.90 each. That is not much under the retail #'s. Can not put a price on one of the best oils to run in our air cooled engines, especially turbos.

Rick, 60 quarts of V-Twin? How often are you changing oil? Love your endorsement and knowledge.

No H2O, The 10 cases are not all for my consumption. My buddies in the Porsche Club need a fix of V-Twin from time to time. I do change my oil twice a season. That would relate to around 600 miles a change. No filters just a drain and refill. For those that think it is a bit extreme I can agree. But I pound the motor pretty hard when I am on the track and because it is programmed to run pretty fat (rich) the oil does get a bit polluted by gas. For the $90 it costs for a change out the fill it is cheap insurance verses splitting the engine cases.

Rick, will you be at Gingerman next weekend for the PCA event?

There was some discussion to attend but that is a big weekend here in Michigan. Some Vintage Racing and the St. Johns (formerly Meadowbrook) Concours.

I have not run the new circuit yet. Will figure out a way to get there this year. Since you are asking are you attending?

I may run up there for a day. Depending on the weather. Not driving, just watching a few of my friends run. I usually spend a couple hours in Saugatuck, too. Makes for a nice day-trip. But if it is +90 degrees and humid (again) I'm staying close to home and the AC.
