I always torque mine to 13 ft-lbs. Removes guesswork out of the equation. Never had a problem with any of the brands I've used, - Purolator, Bosch, Fram, K&N, Mobil 1.

Yeah I have a convertible .22LR/.22mag, which I hear is not as accurate due to the slightly larger size bullet that must be accommodated. I like the concept of .44mag/.44spl, .357mag/.38spl, and now, 10mm/.40S&W... It looks like the glock 20

So the dealer price for an oil filter for my Can-Am is almost $20.00 and there appears to be few aftermarket alternatives. K&N makes the KN-152, however it is straight out of China, which is not confidence inspiring, however MANN apparently makes

Nothing wrong with FRAMs in the $12-$25 range. I replaced mine with a $17 FRAM less $3 mfg rebate. Ordered it as part of a $50 Walmart deal to get free shipping.

We noticed a relative's Honda Minivan had almost no air flow through the back seat air vents. Replacing the cabin air filter changed that immediately. That filter was pretty dirty. So a very dirty cabin filter can affect AC output. My 2007 Honda Acc

I prefer activated carbon in my cabin filters, personally. Anything to prevent bad smells from wafting over the evaporator coils.

Reckon one of the engines famous for fuel dilutions is the ecoboost - hence I have just started mine on Mobil 1 5w40 and therefore can bump up from 5k to 7.5k and still not pay for UOA.

Why would oil be more expensive in Australia, their gas is relatively cheap-hence the v-8 cars such as the Holden Monaro.

Exactly. 55 gallons of free oil is worth a $20.00 VOA to show what's in it and whether it would be suitable for use, not what's stuck to the bottom of the drum.
