    Personally, I'd welcome an engine that would let me use Crisco. Maybe Canola.

    Some customers and investors will not wait that long.

    The investors will want to see a return on the money that they invested .

    Since the financial side of EM is not and has not ever been opened to the public, we'll just have to believe that it's being handled in a professional way.

    Interesting read. I wish they had done some tests on the "high-mileage" oils for cars of over 100,000 miles. My car is 15 years old, with an unknown number of miles since the odometer is broken and doesn't click over the mile consistently, but it's over 100,000 miles.

    So, I have to ask you...why are you "wasting your time" on a forum dedicated to a vehicle that doesn't exist? :fencing:

    I believe that you both may have been in the incorrect thread with your posts.
    This thread is about oil type for the Elio, not production schedule.
    You might want to repost your statements over there, and delete these.
    I cannot move individual posts.
