Locally it's been at minimum $.30 for each upgrade. Over half of the stations are closer to $.40 for the mid-grade--->premium jump. The days of the $.10 steps are long gone. Heck, the days of the $.20 steps are long gone as well.

Shake it up before use if you are worried. It should be perfectly fine.

As for the capacity issue, I do overfill it a bit since it burns oil at the track, especially as I get faster. However, what concerned me this time is the oil looked really black. I've never seen it like that before and I do regular dipstick inspecti

I would like to be educated on an outdoor LED brand name Floodlight that brighten real quickly. The last one I bought was a cheapie and it literally takes a minute to brighten. I want to try something else.

I'd suggest replacing the whole fixture with one with dedicated LED panels rather than retrofitting the bulbs. For outdoor night illumination where color rendering is not important the higher color temperature LEDs will give better visibility.

I'm in agreement with a professional here. Something has changed with the groundwater. Sometimes veins move and how the water gets to the area where is drawn from change. There should be a screen at the pump that mitigates the sand from entering.

The two UOAs before this one were also RedLine 5W30. No thickening occurred as far as I can tell, it's just thick that way.

I'm trying Synpower for the first time in my Impala. Seems great so far, no NVH issues. The only syn that ever did everything different is M1 which was louder in the top end. Probably meaningless as well, I'd run it again.
Used Oil Analysis - Gasoline
What are your previous 2 oil changes? Red Line a thick 5w30 or is it thickening? Wear numbers look good. These LSAs are kind of low capacity engines, only 6 quarts of oil. I wouldn't feel bad changing it at 16%.

Keep in mind that Redline oils run heavy for grade (HT/HS). For example, their 5w30 has the same HT/HS as Mobil 1 0w40- 3.8. As for the additive, generally speaking it's not needed with a quality, properly formulated oil. Unless analysis says otherw
