I would suggest that if one is worried about initial viscosity with respect to fuel dilution (or anything else for that matter), there's not a lot to be gained by splitting hairs within the exact same grade and service classification. Most 5w-30 SN/

Im still a subscriber the theory that you must bleed while working on your car (shade tree myth) for the project to go smoothly and no follow up issues.. its sorta uncanny how true this little rule has been in my life of turning wrenches for hobby.

Motul certainly promotes itself in racing. Red Line has been good at that for a number of years, too. Nonetheless, I wouldn't doubt the ability of either Motul or Red Line. To add to their aura, they're both oppressively expensive in Canada.

I understand the desire to save on washer fluid when there are days I could go through a gallon. Considering that costs as much as a gallon of gasoline, it can effectively double the cost of one outing if we set aside depreciation. But most of the ti

$49/gallon or $177 for five. So save nearly $70. But a bit of hassle for 2-3 years. Storage is a bit of a pain, so if someone were to say the lid is really only good for 2-3 uses before it falls apart, or whatever, then not worth the savings.
