Re: Thermostat/Oil Cooler (long... but maybe useful...)


Hey Simon- 

One other possibility (maybe): aluminum would most likely have to be purchased 
by VW as ingots from another supplier.  So, they'd have to absorb the costs of 
heating aluminum for refining purposes, only to cool it to ship to VW, then 
heat it back up again.  If we assume that VW has their own Magnesium-producing 
facilities, then it is possible that when they heat the concentrated Magnesium 
Chloride salt to past the melting point of Magnesium and perform the 
electrolysis, the molten magnesium is poured directly into the mold.  This 
would be a tremendous amount of savings in energy costs... does this seem 
possible? 

Take care, 
Shad
