It probably would be similar to other HDEO oils made by ConocoPhillips that are rated CJ-4/SM. I wouldn't worry about putting CJ-4 HDEO in a gasoline engine. Just look at how well it works in turbocharged gasoline engines, especially Subaru engines.

I've worked in two shops with epoxy floors. We mopped them with laundry detergent, usually Tide. The secret is to get the floor really wet, scrub the really bad spots, then mop the water and dirt off. Finish with clean water mopping.

Good luck. I have a friend with one. I replaced the PCV, tried Castrol 5w40, and Castrol 10w40 to try to solve the consumption of 5w30 oil. I don't know why this engine and their 3.8L V6 often consume oil.

The UOA sections show that Mag1 5w40 is an excellent oil. You should search the UOA sections and see for yourself.

About 5 years ago, I worked at a shop that used Pennzoil's equivalent. The packages always leaked, and getting the last bit of oil from the container was a chore. They went to bottles soon afterward, and never went back.

What really impressed me is that my local Wal Mart charges ~$26 for this oil in a 5qt container. I thought they would charge more. That also makes it the same price as M1 0w40. Now that WM charges this price for Castrol 0w40, waiting for Advance Au
