FYI - I have not yet opened the air filter compartment to examine it yet, but it has been about 25K miles since the air filter was replaced. For that reason, plus the fact that Silicon is so high, I have ordered a WIX replacement filter, along with

HPS is the good stuff RP makes. Synerlec is fantastic. Even Joe Gibbs did testing with it and got good results and it did produce more HP than a couple of big name oils.

I like [censored] bits. I'd rather mangle a bit than a screw in most cases. I did recently buy a bunch of DeWalt #2 phillips bits that have held up well; much better than the el-Cheapo bits I usually use.

Ditch the Phillips head and get the square drive screws. Made the switch recently and don't plan to go back. With the square drive it makes it a lot easier to use one hand for holding something as the screwhead stays in the bit a lot better in all
