It is a matter of both temperature AND TIME. You can cook a roast in the oven and you can cook a roast in a crockpot. The oven is hotter and takes less time while the crockpot is not as hot and takes longer. In both case the chemical transformation of the proteins in the meat are exactly the same in the end.Agree but, we're talking a diff. here not fractioning hydrocarbons at a refinery.
I sure hope my Diff never gets that hot or seals are gonna fail!
Nice article, but his experiment doesn't address what we are discussing. It is a very convincing sounding paragraph when waved around completely out of context, though.http://www.frantzoil.com/newsletters/newsletter/4817708/50215.htm
In part:“Doesn’t Oil Wear Out or Break Down?” This is brought about
by myths, untrue stories, or mostly just by lack of
knowledge of oil properties. My answer is always, “No, Oil
gets dirty but it does not wear out.” This fact is
substantiated by the U. S. Bureau of Standards, the Shell
Oil Company, the U. S. Air Force, and many others.
I'm not spending extra on Amsoil! Cost to me is lower than some other brands.So, if the oil (or grease) doesn't "wear out", why are you spending the extra $$$$$ for Amsoil? Changing more often to fresh dino products seems the best way to take the trash out of the engine/tranny/rear drive.
That is not true. You should do whatever you want, supposedly it's still a free country, but oil absolutely DOES "wear out". The long hydrocarbon molecules are broken up by shearing forces generated by the hypoid gears and it eventually degrades in its lubricating qualities.I "checked" mine just the other day at 108k and it's just like new. So needless to say no oil change. In general rear lube is a lifetime deal and only needs to be changed if the seals leaked.
It's sealed and oil never wears out. :thumbup:
