It might be a bit harder on the starter, but I see no real reason not to use SAE40 oil as long as it meets requirements for addative levels. Straight weight would be more resistant to shear, so that's a plus. BMW's oil chart allows everything from

I've seen orange cans put in Ultra boxes at Walmart. Yes, by all means check the box for the right filter, and check the filter for flaws before buying.

Actually one swap where the guy got an upgrade. The funniest one i saw was where someone went to the trouble to put a TG inside a Bosch D clear box so they could get a Bosch D for a TG price, which was about a $5 savings.

So this is what I got done this morning: - 3 time drain and fill on the transmission with the Toyota WS fluid. Got exactly 4 qts each time. First time the fluid was black and nasty. I could see an improvement in shifting just after the first drain.

I concur with the 2 fluid recommendations. However if you want to just do a drain and fill with a pan drop. You won't need more than 1 gal unless you plan to do the drain and fill several times. I personally prefer the drain, fill, pump out method.

I paid $1/qt for Mobil Clean 7500 a couple years back (65 qts in stash). $5.50 for oil, $6 for Mopar filter (got 4 at that price), I should be good for $11.50 oil changes/5000 miles, so call it $46 through the next 20,000 miles in the Jeep.

How much did you actually save by not just purchasing another quart of PYB, instead of "MotoMaster" ? I always purchase an extra jug and use the excess for top-offs, etc...
