Is this really all that complicated. > Well, it's more complicated than what you are saying because you are overlooking the *fact* that viscosity decreases *dramatically* with increase in temperature. Oh, and viscosity is not measured in "weight", as in 30 weight or 10 weight. As I told you before, viscosity is measured in cSt (centistokes). -- -Fred W
