Well with the diesels DPF im kinda stuck with the low ash Top Tech 4200 flavor. I do use Mobil 1 in my Transit Connect, Honda Civic and Jetta. Through 50K i have never had to add any top up oil to the TDI btwn the 10k OCI's so im not overly concerned

Put Contacts, Plunger, & Brushes in it or at least check the condition of the Brushes!.......And run it another 265K! Nippon/Denso Gear Reduction starters are the best starter ever made & the Contacts are the most common failure.

From my personal experience I'd pay more for an Earthquake than I would an Aircat. They had a 100% failure rate in our shop when the local Snap On guy was carrying them.

Thanks Quattro Pete: I just called TireRack and they confirm that you cannot compare the scores across different performance categories. Thanks for the education. My owner's manual indicates there were three tire/wheel options apparently available
