Thanks for the replies. Wish there was an auto/engineer/expert, with data.

Still, interesting, some of you have the same experience I have.

Also, agree with poster, car seems to run smoother on freeway after waxing.

I have noticed the same effect, my car runs better after I change the oil. While I might not save money doing it, I know its done right with a very good filter, and no chance of "accidentally" slitting the CV boots.

YES! I use that stuff as a lubricant in my air tools and it smells great every time I use them!

Seems, right after the oil change, Auto seems to run smoother and quieter.

Has anyone else experienced this? Or is it just psychological?

Anyone, do any real experiment with data?
I've always felt my cars run better after I wash and wax them.

I bet it would run better with some kind of green energy. (solar, wind, ...)
