    Does an engines rpm range affect compression ratio? I mean to say, a high revving engine has the same fuel concerns a lower revving engine does. Oil is the primary factor for higher revving engines, past the obvious, an engines ballance.

    it is higher compression, not as high as direct injection engines. The oil is a custom ester blend.

    I get gas from reputable places because of the additives, specifically

    I do not and will not buy from Junior Chavez. That's about my only restriction, although during the oil spill I tried to make sure I always hit up BP.

    Given the nature of the business, where the oil or gas actually comes from that you consume is not always a sure thing when you buy it from a specific retailer

    I try to go for BP as much as possible -- patriotism and all that. The oil spill thing was totally not their fault anyway.

    It depends on what you mean. We buy almost all of our gas from Chevron. Why? Because we have a Chevron credit card and that makes using them more convenient. I have no particular love for or hate for Chevron, they're just the closest gas station to our house and are common throughout the area that we live, therefore we got that card. In the past, we had a Mobil card for the same reason. It's not the name, it's the location that we care about.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    oil is certainly fungible. But I won't buy from Citco, nonetheless.

    Virtually ALL of the gas comes from the same refineries.
