Does your uncle work for Southwest Research Institute? They are the most respected independent testing laboratory for engine, fuel, lubricant, and automotive component manufacturers in the United States.

FYI, I couldn't buy "Amoco" if I wanted to. You need to understand that motor fuel brands are a regional thing...

We have no "Sohio", "Fina", "Gulf", "Conoco", "Sunoco", "Amoco", "Getty", "Citgo", "Mobil", "Phillips 66", "Sinclair", "Tenneco", or "Husky", etc. here where I live. We do have ARCO, BP, Shell, Texaco, Ultramar, Chevron, Union 76, and numerous independent stations out here. We used to have "Exxon" but it has now become "Valero".
