Sure, why not? Will a typical oil filter cutter, aka Caterpillar, Longacre, Airwolf cut your typical fuel filter? Is the media similar to an oil filter? Are fuel, air, oil all typically paper/cellulose elements?

I use Mobil 1 10-40 high mileage in my Kawasaki 6hp. Change it once a year, never a problem. It calls for 10-30 or 10-40.

The issue as I see it is that the jack lifts in an arc, eg not directly straight up. A wheel jack pulls its own wheels under the car, provided the concrete surface is smooth and its top catches a good lip, like a pinch weld. With the opposite side/

I'm very happy with both of my civics (8th gen). I have two kids and we adapt perfectly fine using two compacts as our get around vehicles. Having said that, I believe you can't go wrong with either a Corolla or a Civic. Personally, I liked the body

I read somewhere (maybe the jackstands manual) not to lift both ends of the vehicle at one time. Well, I have shunned that warning a time or two to rotate tires or whatever. Well, I am wondering is there any merit to this caution. I bring this

Hmm Meijer currently has it on sale for $22.99, might have to take advantage. $2.19 a quart is a decent price.

I slowed it down but not to an idle, maybe 1/4 throttle at most also allowing some water to circulate by pulling on the wand. That's another question I had.....when starting the engine with the water on, it seems to pull easy but if it doesn't start

We have a '14 Corolla with the CVT, insane gas mileage and power in it's class, I wouldn't even consider the 4 speed auto, spend a little more and get the CVT. Got ~44 mpg with cruise control set to 80 mph, between Chicago & St. Louis

I have a couple Streamlight TLR1 lights. Both a couple years old and the newer one has strobe and is brighter. LED is most definitely the way to go. If only I hadn't lost all of my guns in that boating accident I would have a place to mount them.
