    another injection quesiton.

    Ok I've noticed when i've been injecting that a minute amount of oil seeps back out of the injection site. Not a lot maybe like .05ml but I'm a "waste not, want not" kinda guy. I inject slowly and even leave the needle in for another 10 seconds after the injection but still get the same effect. I use a 1inch 22g needle (mainly cause i hate using one pin to draw and one to inject) Any way to prevent this or is it just something you just have to deal with?

    i usually leave mine in for a good twenty seconds, take the needles out fast then put slight pressure on the injection site

    Draw some air into the syringe, maybe 0.25ml. After you have injected the oil, the air will follow. This will ensure no leakage and no oil left in the needle.

    And yes, I do this all the time.

    I agree, this is by far the most effective way to keep the oil from seeping. I haven't heard the Z brought up in years. Good thinking.
