white motor oil

White motor oil so we can see it on the dip stick and so it won't stain the driveway so bad.

Make motor oil white so we can see it on the dip stick and so it won't look so bad on the driveway and on the motor. Also have the oil turn red as it gets old or looses lubrication potential so the wife know when to change the oil by looking.

       What color is your driveway?
Shz, Sep 16 2003

       Honey, I thought I told you to wait until the oil turned red before changing it. You've got white motor oil all over you.   

       That ain't motor oil.

       You clearly have a reasoned and balanced view of the female ability to use a dipstick, bronco. And how do you tell when the oil gets old?

       //And how do you tell when the oil gets old?//   

       Because it would go an odd silvery-black colour with all the bits being rubbed off the metalwork inside the engine.   

       Unless you have a white driveway, I struggle to see how white oil would aid in the drip problem - get a drip tray or stuff a sheet underneath.

       Deliberately facetious remark PS, in case you hadn't realised.

       You are right about the driveway, the real benefit would be to keep the drip sheet from looking so bad.

       [marked-for-deletion] surely redundant because of the white dipstick?

       i think you can buy that stuff at the "your an idiot" store.this is oil not oil besed paint.
