Actually, keeping the engine block free of oil on an 80 is critical to the quality of the scones from the sNakster. Quite critical. One simply cannot have even the slightest whiff of 5W30 ruining the latte-and-scones experience.

I subscribe to the flavoring that only 5W30 can provide. When I do choose to use 5W30 it is often for foods cooked for longer periods of time/lower temperatures. In my experience such situations allow the food to be more subtlely flavored by the smoke from the burning 5W30 and/or smoldering electrical. While 5W30 grilling always adds to the aroma for the cook, in my experience when the resulting food has been quickly cooked at high temperature with good air circulation there is minimal flavor difference when using 5W30.

I wonder, root, if you've tried Mobil1? It imparts a slightly more robust hint, reminders of times past when you still had to crank start and driver's wore goggles. But in the end, it's truly hard to beat the subtle southwestern kick of Syntec or the old world aroma of Rotella.

I always just put a rag around the bottom, spin it off fast and usually lose very little to have to wipe up. This is on Fs, 2Fs and 1HZ, not sure about orientation/clearance on a 1FZ?
