Reasons: Fuel Dilution, Carbon Build up (well helps some), Burning a little oil

Present Oil: MaxLIfe 5w30...good oil, need lower NOACK and better HTHS

Anyone use this oil and have an opinion

Noack will be better on the plain PP 10w30, that is if nothing changed since they dropped the claim from pds.

Agree. But why not not a 5W-30.


If you want the job done right......do it yourself.

Used MaxLife for a long time, but fuel dilution was getting worse per UOA as was consumption. Its a trial to how this goes.

Noack is meaningless in preventing intake valves deposits. Oil is going to sleep past the valve stem seals by design. The ash content of the oil is what really matters. Pennzoil platinum euro LX makes claim to reduce inlet valve deposits. Look up the oil on Pennzoils website. VW 504/507 are what you want for intake valves deposit reduction.
