My parents have a 2012 Camry, 4 cyl with 62,000 miles. Since new, they have followed the local dealership recommendation of 10k OCI's at the dealership with Toyota synthetic oil and OEM filter of course. So, they have only had 6 oil changes. Their d

We used their synthetic blend in my girlfriend's Civic when the dealership changed the oil unauthorized. Held up fine for the 9 months we had it in the car and still looked as golden brown as the day they put it in, for what that's worth. No odd nois

Not really, other than needing high purity for dielectrical purposes, it's kinda a waste because it's only available in small 2-4 ounce sizes. And like I said it would be hard to spread it really thin without wasting so much of it. Even the 100% sil

Nice uoa! What air filter? Total car mileage seems high enough for break-in si to start trending down. Or maybe it's just at the point of a downward trend. Are you now sticking with 7,500 miles max for warranty purposes?

It would probably work, but would also be quite a bit more expensive. And the Lubro Moly Oil Saver has to be replenished at each oil change, iiirc.

Good stuff. As a guy who spent 10 years going to sea on Submarines and still working on them today, I can tell you German U-boats were the good stuff. Their technology for the time was amazing! Thanks for sharing!
