Of course the ST would be fine for this undemanding application. 6500 mile OCIs should be a piece of cake for any API SM/SN oil in most engines in most uses. Many of us, including me, would look to a better quality oil and filter solution, but one ha

I have used it without causing a problem, however, I am not sure how well it removes sludge and varnish. On abused cars, it removes so much sludge so quickly that the oil pump screen gets covered with engine sludge and quickly ruins the engine. I sa
