Josh,
I always knew you could party. smirk wave


I mean, you can’t just waste it, right?

Also that might be why my brain doesn’t math so good. I had calculated it out in my head and come up with a .28oz difference, when as is pointed out here,

It seems to actually be more like 2.8 oz. So, never mind then!

Well my purchase of Melitta #4 coffee filters today was disappointing. The price has gone up and the quantity reduced from 100 to 80 in the same packaging. mad

This happened years ago to many major ice cream brands including my favorite - they went from 1/2 gallons to 1.75qts. But I quickly found a solution by simply buying two containers at a time. Ha - I really showed them!

I buy 6 quarts of Power 1 on Amazon for $52.95, or $8.83/quart. BMW Advantec goes for $18.00/liter. You do the math and work it out for yourself, but I'm going to stick with the quart bottles of Castrol.
BTW I find that 4 quarts fills my wethead motor just to the top of the sightglass circle on an oil/filter change.
