I have sort of the opposite experience...most of the mom and pop places are locked up, but the fast food chains aren't. I was even able to get Mickey D's and Sonic to let me collect the WVO. Weird!

Ok, I probably read some bad gouge there about WMO and WVO. But I still think that most kits are good. I find it hard to understand why anyone would sell a product like that without knowing that...

Online courses in diesel mechanics
