Funny, but I recently flicked though a ~1/2 century old motorcycle mag,
& there was an advert for a new Castrol fully synthetic engine oil, as
derived from aerospace & racing program technological advances...

(& for a 'teflon' impregnated low-friction piston, similarly touted, too!)
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).
