An oil thread :rofl :

I personally believe Italian food should be cooked in a medium priced olive oil while for fish and chips and a traditional English breakfast require lard or dripping. I can't honestly tell if Indian food has used ghee or normal commercial oil.

Can't help with the oil thread though. I bet it's really long though. Tried the technical bit?

Duck and cover...

Is that the one that says "change your oil early and use only the brand suggested by some dude off the forum" or the less popular one that says, "change on the manufacturer's guidelines because they do this sort of stuff for a living and build tolerances into their estimates to cater for us 'idiots' who are likely to mess something up and cause a costly warranty claim"?

When you find it just promise not to post it as it only upsets people...
