Lake Erie is still partially frozen, so its a good time to get stuff done before the real good weather comes. But hey! This is good. Now that you mention it, I'll head to the store and buy some Redds.

Think of it this way, you have 100, you multiply by 150% (1.5) to get 150. Divide 150 by 150% (1.5) to get back to 100.

because % is per cent, where cent means hundred. Think pennies, one hundred cents to a dollar. One per cent, one per one hundred. So if you have 50 per cent, then you have fifty per hundred. So 50% of 100 is 50 per one hundred or 50 somethings.

First thing I'd do is check for spark - one cylinder at a time. I'd want to first determine if the misfire is ignition related or fuel related. In the meantime, I'd be using my nose to smell the exhaust. A rich smell means the fuel is getting deliver

I use an oversized filter on the Park Avenue ONLY because it makes it easier to reach. I am using a Fram Tough Guard, currently on its second OCI. Im running the filter for 2 OCI's.

OP, your initial inquiry didn't give me the impression you plan on making this a habit so i wouldn't worry one bit. And even if you were, most folks just read the bottle (where they say fully compatible) and move on.

The bladder in the tank usually has a schrader valve so you can check pressure. Do so. If water comes out during the check, the membrane is shot. If there is air in there, ensure the pressure is to spec. Then consider replacing the valve.

i think they call their house brand pro line but your best bet is supertech if you are looking for a good oil at a pretty good price.
