If you run 20% MMO every oc, the concentration will gradually increase because not all of the used oil is removed. Try using the 20% MMO oc every other time.

So I don't mind buying stuff from AA since they are convenient (8 miles), but the replacement for a denso coil is double the cost from RA. For > $50USD, i can let the car sit for 2 days.
