Well this is obviously not totally scientific but I am curious to how everyone would rank them and possibly why. So, here it goes for me. Using a 1-10 scale. My "Super 7" oil filters #1 Fram Ultra = 10. This is due to its quality constr

Hey guys, Looking to extend on my wife's 12' 4cly Malibu. Obviously things need to be finalized via uoa, but what's the consensus on the longer lasting oil. 5w30ep or 0w30ss. Car is driven 40 miles a day on 55mph 2 lane roads...hoping to maybe ru

Hi Broc, Thank you so much for taking out the time and helping me out. I am planning to use a fram ultra filter with ms5k when I reach the 5000/6 month interval. After the harsh winter is done I'll be trying out M1 HM with the same filter. Eng

The etiquette in tipping is explained here. It's a little confusing to those of us who haven't grown up with it, but just a way of life for Americans I suppose. https://www.tripadvisor.com.au/Travel-g191-s606/United-States:Tipping.And.Etiquette.html

Most quality filters will go 2 oil changes ... Yours are a bit long for average, but why not?

They do it because most people NEVER check their engine oil level, and the hope is that a slight overfill will keep them from running dry before the next change if the engine consumes any.

My Silverado has a Fram Ultra that was installed in Aug 2014 - it's on it's second oil change that was performed Sept 2015. The oil life monitor currently is at 40% Don't plan to change it until it reaches 20% , which could be a few months from now.

How can you be sure of 1/4 quart overfill I say this as I see here that MANY owners do not check their oil as instructed in the owners manual. "I let it drain over night and check it cold"...yep you guys. Show me that in ANY auto manual.
