I agree to stick with Mobil 1.. Far easier to find than the unicorn blood of the Pennzoil Ultra. Their products are very good as evidenced by your own experience

BMW sells an electric vehicle and they strongly discourage the owner from opening the hood or touching anything not in the cockpit. Self service for this vehicle does not exist.

Comparing both uoas. Wear wise the Motorcraft looks slightly better, but the Toyota oil held up better looking at the TBN. Both seem to have done the job, and thats what really matters Both are great reports.

Our '01 Focus has 5W-20 recommended. Having written that, I've also used 5W-30 and 10W-30 in it and it makes no difference I can see. I don't think that these engines are picky about oil grade, but then most aren't.

Are we allowed to laugh at stuff like this, or is that considered impolite? What is the fascination people have with putting snake oil additives into their motor oil that are actually inferior to the oil itself? I don't get it.

To be fair on Penrite, they DO have a range of Approved Lubricants And looking at the approval docs gives an example of how "expensive" the testing regime is to the likes of Penrite.

I lean toward the newer raspberry. It has a newer gen chip so the coding they would do on that would be almost the same as what they would do on any other ARM based system like Android or Windows for ARM.
