I have resisted all the gadgets and miracle additives. To save gas I: Combine & limit trips, Air up tires, Remove junk weight from the vehicles, Use cruise control when possible, and Drive with a light foot.
Engine Oil Filters
I think most cars would be fine with holes in the filter media. I don't think there is (under normal conditions) anything in the oil that needs to be filtered. The filters are there as a CYA just in case something goes wrong or something gets in ther

*Maybe* its just "cleaning" as others have suggested- but I don't think I buy it. You've run PP in that engine before, did it do the same thing? You've run Euro M1, it should do about the same. I'd be far more concerned that you've develope

If you can add oil, you can find a way to remove it. My old 1990 B&S Toro has BOTH a drain plug under the deck as well as the option to tip the mower on its side and drain the oil out of the fill hole. My 1984 Honda snowblower has two drain p

That's exactly what I was thinking. What I don't understand is why Amsoil and Redline changed their recommendation because I recall that before Acura came out with the DW1 and all wheel drive fluid that they both recommended their ATF in the rear dif

I don't see how a dino 5w20 would affect anything. The only thing that I would change is go 5k miles maximum on the OCI instead of MM. Besides, no 0w20 oil has the turbo rating yet, so it's not like it's going to be superior in height temp situatio

The downside for electronic ignition is cost and complexity. The sum total makes it beneficial overall versus carburation. The only snake oil I fell for was Slick 50. All my colleagues were raving over this back then. Also back then, there was a

I just called the Mobil tech and they assured me there is only one M1 0-40. I told him some say there is a different formulation in Euro for M1 0-40, vs US, and he again said there is only one 0-40. Same in Euro and the US. Could he be wrong? Possib

PYB, QSGB, MS5k, are all good choices. The H6 is a solid engine. 5k should be no problem with any SN 5w30. That fits your 10k yearly milage nicely. Check/change your PCV valve if you have not already. Nice car, enjoy.

If the battery has caps, you can recognize a JCI battery as the corners of the caps are cut at 45 degrees whether its an JCI Interstate or JCI MAXX, etc.
