Congratulations! In Feb of 2013 I became debt free by paying my house and former car off and then six months later the desire for a new sports type car took over and I went back in debt for a new 2014 Mustang GT. Then in August of this year I bough

I have heard ST's oil has a TBN generally around 7-8. And I have heard it quickly deteriorates. However, I would have no problem using their oil, especially if they had an 0w20 for the full MM on my Honda. It is fine oil IMO. But who am I? Cheers.

I too have that page. However, mine specifically mentions Hondas oil as what is recommended. It goes on to say that full synthetic is not recommended. But thanks for showing me that, reinforces using M1 0W20! Cheers

How does Super Tech compare to NAPA Synthetic, or Meijer? Are any of them comparable to the big boys?

I had (note had) a 2012 cruze that I got new. Never really used dexos-1 oil except maybe once or twice. Other than that, I used MC 5W30 and a denso filter at 6-7k miles and then I switched to bulk 5w30 cheapo blend that I ran 5k miles. At 39k miles,

Well if they continue to support Win 7 till 2020 I'll worry about it then. If they stop before then I will be using Linux on everything I own. I don't see myself paying for Windows anymore.

Got the quart version of Rislone Engine Treatment plus a Fram PH16 for $5.08 sweet. I saw they had Valvoline High Mileage 20w-50 for $1.97 per quart. Is that a good top off for a vehicle requiring 5w-30 that has a moderate appetite?

If you have a competent handyman working for 30 bucks an hour keep a hold of his number and treat him well. Black Friday a new opener is 100 bucks, so if you got anything decent for double that I'd be pretty happy.
