Not a bad deal at all, especially for those that prefer to avoid MIRs. I already have a pretty huge stash thanks to the great Menards deals earlier this year, though. We'll see if this stops me.

Good report. Looks like even the hybrid Honda DI still has some fuel dilution issues but as always, it isn't going to hurt anything. Interesting to see it looks like most other DI UOAs.

Hopefully they'll do the right thing and give you a full refund, plus a prepaid return label. I recently bought a PCV valve from O'Reilly and it would not fit in the vehicle, so I know how frustrating it is (albeit on a smaller scale).

Yes, if it's RA's fault that you received the wrong part, they will give you a return ship NUMBER to ship the part back to them on their dime. If you ordered the incorrect part#, well, it's on your dime!
