Default Oil Laboratory?

I have a question. It may seem simple on the onset so naw on it a sec before you answer.


If I have 350 cst shock oil and 300 cst shock oil....Can I send them on a dinner date and have 325cst?

You might want to skip the dinner date and send them straight to the hotel.

Good question BTW

Yes, but it's not 50-50 like most would think. I forget the ratios, but there was a website that had a mix chart/application. Maybe someone can remember it.

So a 50-50 mix should be close

50/50 split will not be exact but will be very close. Now if you were mixing 60 and 20 trying to get 40 you would be way off.

Thanks for the link dynamiteracer. Been missing it since GE took it off their site
