Well it is not an American brand if Hugo owns it and controls it.Regarding Citgo: true Hugo and co own the stuff, but Citgo employs THOUSANDS of US citizens at its US refineries. Formerly Cities Service, Citgo is an American brand that has the misfortune of being owned by a nutcake (he's dying by the way)
Too bad you have no idea what you are talking about:Well it is not an American brand if Hugo owns it and controls it.
Trying to change the name will not change who they are
And you have paid no attention.Too bad you have no idea what you are talking about:
"At the same time, the government was nearing completion of a major refinery at Rose Bluff just outside of Lake Charles, Louisiana, that would eventually become the foundation of the company's manufacturing operation. Using designs developed by Cities Service and the Kellogg Co., the plant was dedicated only 18 months after the first concrete was poured. A month before Allied troops landed in France, it was turning out enough critically needed 100-octane aviation gasoline to fuel 1,000 daily bomber sorties from England to Germany. Government funding through the Defense Plant Corporation (DPC) also prompted Cities Service to build plants to manufacture butadiene, used to make synthetic rubber, and toluene, a fuel octane booster and solvent."
Uh, the company has been in business as a US company since BEFORE WWII (around 1900). Citgo/Cities Service played a significant role in the war effort. It is since 1990 it has been owned by Venezula.....way before Chavez....
It has already been stated that none of these motors have experienced a failure due to type of oil. Ultimately you have to be comfortable in the choice you make and how you spend your money. Syn 3 isn't bad oil but it's not great,and for the price you can get better. Red line makes a 3 pack for our bikes and I can attest to it improving the feel of my clutch and almost eliminating the "clunk" we get going into first gear. I personally will never put motor oil in my tranny or primary when manufacturers make a specific product for it. It's up to you. How often do you want to wrench on your bike.
