I am interested in trying an ester based synth oil. Currently look at either Gulf Competition Ester 5w40 or Motul Sport. The motul sport looks like a new breed somewhere between 300v and X-Cess. But the gulf comes in at 10 GBP cheaper and is quite

The fact that many people replace only two tires indicates how few people actually rotate their tires. Even rotating once half-way through the life of the tires is a big help.

Since you mentioned high temps, what temp is your pentastar running at? Do they run hotter in the Rams? With winter temps mine (the Durango) stays in the 180s. Summertime causes it to run in the 190s, low 200s if I'm setting in traffic. Convent

Looks like a great Ideal, if your stuck with the horrid cans. I upgraded to Eagle Safety cans, and 5 gal NATO cans, you can still buy them. At the time I thought if gas was $5 a gallon, I could afford a Heavy Duty metal can since I could not afford

Putting bread in the fridge dries it out. Don't do it. If you buy extra bread (i.e. BOGO at the store), put a loaf in the freezer. It will thaw relatively quickly when you're ready to use it. Because science: http://www.seriouseats.com/2014/06/doe

If I don't use it within a week (branded bread) or three days (fresh baked) I put it in the fridge. I bring it to room temp "low and slow" in the microwave wrapped in a damp paper towel. At that point you can heat it in a toaster oven if

It takes me a while to go through a loaf so my bread usually stays in the fridge. Lasts pretty long. Only drawback is it will dry out from the lack of humidity.

Trav, that makes sense on a stored engine and I do live in high humidity. It also says you only need to use 20% of the engines oil capacity so 4 ounces an oil change once a year would be cheap. You don't think it would benefit on a daily driver, watc
