One (serious) comment I will add....

If you are not a native English speaker, then we really don't care at all if your English is lacking- the point is to communicate however you can, not to meet our standards of writing.

Yes?

Absolutely.

I originally had written some disclaimers in there about the grammar part not applying to folks who could also take the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foriegn Language), but finally decided that I wasn't trying to write a novel or a legal disclaimer so I took it all out

Plus, in my experience, folks for whom English is not the primary language tend to have better grammar than native speakers. The wording choices can sometimes be interesting, but the grammar is typically exceptional

Arrow Not so fast

I really do not mind seeing some old subjects brought to light from time to time. New blood can bring new ideas to the table. I always have the ablity to skip what does not interest me.

This being said, I do not know if the subject of oil can be further beat to death with anything useful or not. Tires on the other hand seem to continue to evolve at a fairly quick pace. Many subjects such as wax are pretty subjective, unless of course someone discovers a wax that jumps out of the can and applies itself! This I would like to hear about.

Duly noted. Spell checker installed

The worst part is that since it is a Sticky I can't go back and edit the typo!!

K-Y?

Thanks for the post. It should be 'common sense' ... but that can run pretty thin too.
