I'm done with Purolator, and not limited to their oil filters. If they intentionally do not respond to valid concerns having been given multiple opportunities to do so, then I have to think they have something to hide or don't care about their custom

I believe the only OCI-related restrictions Chevron places on Techron Concentrate usage is to not use it more than three times in the course of an OCI. I remember reading that on official Chevron literature but do not have a link to it at this time.

VW reliability..or UN-reliability is being overblown in this thread. The 2.5 is a reliable motor, and has a timing chain which is nice. AFAIK the manuals are problem free. It may not be as reliable as a Toyota or Honda but with those low miles its wo
