A 20w50 oil blend with Ricin
« on: January 20, 2009, 10:37:26 pm »
I know Elfmoto makes a 10w40 blend with Ricin for the old castor oil smell.

Does anyone know of a 20w50 blend like this?

09 BMW R1200GSA for a change of pace!

Ricin is very poisonous.  WWI pilots would sometimes suffer from inhaling it.  They usually didn't live long enough (for other obvious reasons) to determine long term effects.

I don't know why they would even sell it.  It's a gimmick pitch.

A four stroke engine probably wouldn't burn enough anyway to notice the smell.  :o

I wouldnt mix stuff in my oil risking the engine for someone else to have a sniff,--if many people cared.

     Yes a 4 stroke would'nt burn enough.

   Mix the engine oil with old Indian resteraunt cooking oil then you will smell like curried  vindaloo.
