It has a cool, old school ring to it. And the 10W-30 has great specs.

And it quieted down my somewhat noisy 4.6 timing chains. Hopefully the so-called "clingy" molecules will make the inevitable timing chain guide failure less inevitable.

You paid too much. wink
I got in on the $0.05/qt deal... although some of it was the syn-blend stuff.

Still have not used any yet, have too much other cheap oil to use first.

Took my sisters 11 Corolla and they used magnatec 0w-20. No complaints from the engine . It seems alright. It has/had a $10 service rebate . I think it expires this week.

Because, the engine on the TV commercial makes a humming noise. So, yours should too. grin

The big reason for me to use it is the bang for the buck. Priced just below Edge yet give full synthetic protection. A lot of users here have commented that their engines ran quieter. The stuff they use to make the oil stick a bit more to parts might be doing that. Who knows.

Why is this oil so "quiet"? Moly? Intelligent molecules? Liquid earplug additives?

Is it significantly different than Edge?
