I have MATCO ones in 1/4" and 3/8" and love them. For the undershields on cars they can't be beat.

That is an insane amount of blade wear. I've had the same blades on well used push mowers for 10yrs and not seen that in my area. Like said above, the MTD 38-42" twin blade decks are super shallow compared to the Sears/Husqvarna 42".

Looks pretty good. I think I have one or two more left in my stash, but I'm trying to finish using the Napa golds first. Once all of my other filters are used, I'm going to switch to Fram Ultra's running them for two OCI.

I highly doubt the switch made any engine operation changes to be felt, probably the weather? I've ran 5W20 Ultra, then switched to TGMO 0W20 in my Accord, and nothing changed, MPG remained the same as well.

^^^If you think it may be a suspension issue due to high miles, accident or incident, have the car aligned. The alignment guy will tell you if you have any bad front end parts.

Boaters have a strong aversion to using E-Anything in their tanks. In some states (NY for one) E-10 is the only fuel available so boaters have to suck it up in those states.

Usually a bad balljoint or other loose suspension component will shake after you hit a bump, esp while going around a curve, and the problem goes away when you apply brakes. I'm fairly confident that's not your issue. My first guess would be tires,

I have 2.2 GM ecotec engine and the factory block heater is an external bolt on type that is very inefficient and not as strong as I would like. The heater hoses come out of the engine close to the firewall and at about the same height as the inlets

Different country, different views. On this side of the pond, different coporate culture ruling over the dealers, and different training used at the dealrs for those who service the cars. Proabaly a different set of buyers also.
