You missed my point, TT. But you proved my point in a way as well- government subsidies create false bubbles in an economy which are not supported by the real factors of supply and demand- if ethanol as an valid, worthwhile fuel for every car on th

I'd have no problem using either of these filters. The UPF has a silicone adbv, so likely the preferable choice for extended ocis. The PF uses same thread end bypass used on some M1s, nice feature. Either preferable to the ecore alternative, 'imo'.

Definitely General RT43. We live in Denver and have these on my GF's Matrix. Aside from being a very good all round tire, they lead their class by a mile in snow performance. No brainer.

I personally ran RP in my Subaru from 1,800 miles up to ~32K. When I drained it after a 30K interval, the fluid came out as an opaque silver-grey color and appeared very viscous. I put in Amsoil SVG and ran that for 70K miles and it came out looking
