Jump to new posts Re: TGMO or MGMO which is more desirable? by CATERHAM @ 1 minute 55 seconds ago

Not only that but M1 0W-20 is really intended for 5W-20 applications. For Japanese applications oils like TGMO and MGMO are more suitable being much lighter at typical start-up temp's and also have higher AW additive levels.

Google 'Cheap car rental Boston' and try a few brokers like Priceline, Ecconomy car rental, Kyak etc. Many offer lowest price guarantee, so play one against the other and ask for an upgrade in lieu of a price match.

Good to know about the QS autopsies. Too bad their parts selector is pooched for my application (truck). It's probably why Menard's doesn't stock the QS2. A standard, reduced, and oversize filter (housing) should all have the same gasket dimensions.
