Been using it in all of our gas and diesel marine vehicles. No problems, engines run great. Couldn't think of a better oil for engines that run at high rpm all day long. Also use it in most of the private vehicles, all of the muscle cars, all of the

I swore my 04 had gear issues too after reading all the symptoms on line. When I finally took it to a shop a year later 3 of 4 wheel bearings were toast and the rear end was perfect. The IRS bearings sound just like bad gears when they go out.
