NOBODY does this.
Telling people to check their oil at EVERY fill up is stupid, everyone
knows it's stupid so it is ignored.
Except by you.
Meantime if anyone wants to check their oil first thing in the
morning, they'll get nearly the same reading as at the gas station so
long as the car was parked on level ground. And they won't need a
wipe. And they can check their tire pressures when the tires are cold
- something you can't do at the gas station.
Now if you were to read the section on checking transmission fluid and
it were to say it should be checked with the transmission fluid at
operating temperature then you could go on to say something about
check engine oil right after checking the trans. But I doubt many
owners could locate the trans fluid so this would be another waste of
time - in other words, right up your alley.
news at 10: f.a.a. decides that airlines can dispense with "safety
checks". the new standard of "well, it seemed to be ok last time we
used it" is now considered sufficient for the nation's air fleet.
spokesperson for a.l.p.a., mr brain acar, told reporters that members
were "thrilled the stupidity is over" and that they were looking forward
to "just getting on with flying".
under this rule change, airlines from the former soviet union member
states and greater africa will now also be able to crash within u.s.
airspace for the first time.
I checked my oil yesterday at a gas station about 2 minutes after turning the
engine off. I checked it again this morning after it sat all night. The level on
the dipstick was the same.
If I repeat this experiment a hundred times will I get a different result?
