About Me and This Website
My name is Mike Kaufman. I am the author of "The Motor Oil Bible" and have been selling synthetic motor oil, lubes & high efficiency filtration for about 15 years.
Over that time, I've done ALOT of reading and talking and studying and researching motor oil and filtration, and I've always felt that a well educated customer was always the best customer, because they understood their needs, understood the differences between motor oils, how to evaluate and quantify those differences and how to determine whether an oil is doing the job they expect it to do.
Ultimately, THOSE are the customers that will stick with you for the long haul ... IF you've got a good quality product.
Why I Do It
My book and this website are both the result of a desire to educate people regarding motor oil and filtration - to help them be better and more educated consumers, so that they don't buy a product simply because the company propaganda says it's the best thing to come around since the IC engine was invented.
The best way to establish the quality of an oil is to evaluate it's technical specifications, pay close attention to those that are most critical to your application and then to verify via oil analysis whether the oil is actually performing to the level you expect.
If it is, then, of course, you keep using it. If it's not, then you move on to the next product and put it through the same "trial by fire" test method.
Why This Site is So Valuable?
That's the beauty of "The Motor Oil Evaluator". It allows you to not only compare the technical specifications for nearly 700 oils within just minutes to find those that are the highest quality and best fit for your needs, it now also gives you the opportunity to see how this oil performs over time - BEFORE YOU BUY IT and without having to perform your own oil analysis!
Of course, I'd still recommend you run your own oil analysis, BUT, as a Gold or Platinum member of this site, you'll have a much better idea of what to expect BEFORE you purchase an oil because you'll have access to view OTHER MEMBERS' oil analysis results for any oil in the database.
Never has there been a website like "The Motor Oil Evaluator", that would allow you to view so much motor oil technical information in one place with so much ease.
You Owe it to Yourself
You work hard for the money you earn, and, when you spend such a large portion of that hard earned money on a vehicle, you want it to last, and you want it to perform well.
Motor oil and filtration are the two greatest factors that will affect how long and how well your vehicle performs at the level you expect. Why not make sure you're using the best and not just take someone else's word for it?
"The Motor Oil Evaluator" allows you to do that. Even a free membership provides you with access to a HUGE amount of data in a very easy to use format. And, if you decide you want more functionality and more data, a simple (and very inexpensive) upgrade is all it takes.
