Hello again, and do any of you folks here know if the Exxon Superflo is still a good oil for 4-5k with a good filter like Purolator P-1 or WIX? I still see this oil at advance auto parts. Friend of mine with a older cavalier was wondering; I dont see many reason why not.



thank you in advance,

adam v

That oil would probably go 7-8k, application depending.

Try the new SN GF-5 Mobil Super 5000 with titanium - easy 5K and $11.50 at wallys for 5q jug - It killed the new PYB in our forester. It also has a sinister looking Jug!

Thanks guys and I will let him know bout it. His 98' cavalier has like 103k on it, no problems and he generally uses a pure one filter or napa gold on it with whatever is on sale; says he wants to try Formula Shell or Superflo.



thanks again, and heck I may use it on my civic also!

Must be not having any moly any more, no boron any more, lots of sodium and a whopping 36 ppm of titanium. What a deal at $11.50 cry

Only UOA will tell you if the oil has any significant issues for YOUR use and YOUR driving profile. You could see things like shear out of grade, high oxidation, fuel dilution, etc. which would help decide.

And it fully meets the strict API SM and GF-5 specs. So what dont YOU know about lubricant additisation by looking at a VOA?! Molys' dissappearing everywhere with the advent of GF-5 Could it possibly increase piston deposits and cause ring sticking? Not compatible with E85? Formula Shell SMwas moly loaded - smooth stuff.

So does the current Exxon Superflo still have a decent additive package? Talked to a older man that I work with and he uses it and it alone in his old 91' toyota 2wd truck and no complaints; he said he would try it if I was inclined. Might look at advance and autozone this thursday or friday and get some.

thanks

adam
