In the case of this 1M mile Toyota it's true that any filter would have resulted in the same due to the extremely high amount of highway miles and regular oil changes. When those situations aren't present is when higher efficient filters can help mak

You know I've seen just a few of the new AP UOA's and frankly I really wasn't impressed they showed no better wear metal etc. than the regular Mobil 1 or their EP. Presently in see no real value in Mobil AP.

I know of at least one car that will set a code if the TB is moved even with the engine off, key out. Seems that the ECU stays active for a little while after the key is removed. Disconnecting the battery is a sure way to avoid setting a code.
