I am 4 weeks into a 2018 Forester. I love it so much that I want to buy an older one for a winter beater. Considering something of that vintage with bad head gaskets as a winter rat. As long as I can get the monitors to come up and CEL to stay off!

Unless Subaru installed some sort of KERS or the "mild" hybrid system off the XV Crosstrek Hybrid, I doubt you have any provision for regenerative braking. The Forester's CVT control logic probably incorporates better hill sensing and wil

Read what Amsoil wrote. They are telling you to use what oil for what specification. I never said Amsoil was approved by the donut foundation (API) for this specification.

By some of your recent posts, and the fact that you were inquiring about SA, I presume that SA is very important for the spec that you were discussing (e.g. ACEA C3)? When you say major oil brand, is this the same as an oil major? From Wikipedia:
