You are crazy. Yugo specified 20W40. I know it because I had one. Sadly, that was before I knew about BITOG and used 10W40 instead.

For starters, check the date on the calendar...


I can read the calendar OK.
2013, year after the world was supposed to end in 2012. We live on a borrowed time. Sounds like we just started 4th month of that already.

Tire pressure-boost crossover.
Now that's a good one.



As far as the omni goes I had one. Great little car. 5 speed,2.2 engine. My girl at the time drove it without oil. She pulled in an I could hear the top end clacking really badly so I asked her how
On its sounded like that.
A week or so she says,I was working out of town at the time. So I pop the hood,no oil shows on the dipstick. I put 4 litres in.
She drove that car for 3 more years til she rolled it.
Its funny you know. There was a time in my life where vehicle maintenance was a whenever type thing,and my vehicles still went into spaceship type mileages. Now I obsess about it and they don't seem to last any longer.

Well if we want to split hairs the new 5.3 specs 0w20.

I call [censored] on any 5w30 being the best. Vival la 10w40 dino in a prius in northern canada in February!!!!


You got me! I'm not sold on AFM and 0w-20 oil yet...
5w-30 in 20 years will be the 20w-50 of today...
