isn't to lubricate the crankcase. Either
your oil is in the bearings and up to the
cylinder head every turn of your engine,

Now what's the chance for any of the
general run of oils to stay up while you've
parked the car, for instance? Just about
as much chance as there is for a geyser
to stay up all by itself! Then every time
you start, don't pistons get up to the
top before oil gets up from the crank-
case? You kill that risk by changing sow
