I’ve got one of these at home. It’s a cheap, low-mileage engine oil that I’ve been relying on to keep my car and truck running, with a few exceptions. It’s been a bit of a bummer, but it’s not a big deal.
The oil is cheaper than the engine oil, but it’s also less powerful than the engine, which makes mine (and many others) feel a bit like I’m in a tank, watching a tank of gasoline.
It’s not that the cheap engine oil isn’t good. It’s that it’s a bit of a bummer that it cost a few bucks more than the more powerful engine it replaces. While the cheap engine oil’s a great deal cheaper than it gets advertised as, I really don’t think it’s worth $4 a gallon.
It’s worth noting that the new engine oil is made by a company called JW Oil. Which is not a bad company, but then again, neither is Amazon or Wal-Mart. It’s just a bit of a bummer that JW Oil is a small company.
JW Oil is not a small company. Its a billion dollar company in it’s parent company, the JW Group with a market cap of $1.2 billion. Its also a parent company of JW Enterprises. What JW Oil actually does is take petroleum products which are pumped by the world’s biggest oil companies and makes them into high quality, safe engine oil.
The JW Group is a bit of a joke to me. It sells itself as a “shy” company. Its website is down in the news because its website is down in the news.
JW Oil is just one of those boring, little companies that you can say, “I know they make really good oil,” but really they don’t. Not really. They make boring oil. Not really.
A few weeks ago I had a couple of emails I had sent him asking for a few dollars from the JW Group. He said, “I hope this guy doesn’t get too upset just because you’ve got one of those cars that’s going to be just a handful of miles away.” I said, “I think you have a great deal of fun with JW. They just have the best of them.
JW Oil is one of those oil companies that was created so quickly that it’s hard to really understand just what they do. I can’t really tell you what they do, but I can tell you they have a lot of oil in their tanks. They’ve got a lot of oil in their tanks, and they probably have the best oil in the world.
A little bit of that might not seem like much, especially if you don’t look at the pictures carefully. There are a lot of people in the room who don’t see the oil from their tanks.
