    MMO experiment that could use validation....

    If you want to test gloves, test'em, seals test'em. To test gloves to determine what is going to happen to a seal doesn't add up for me.

    Amsoil SSO 0W-30, 1993 Civic, 3,007 miles

    Do you plan on fixing that leak?

    Do you really need any thicker than 0W-20?

    So I guess me, Demarpaint, and a few others were correct saying they were designed to break down. Why blame MMO, oil, Kreen,or anything else then? If you're looking for the best gloves, that's cool, if this is to slam any products, I think its a lousy attempt.

    Do you really need any thicker than 0W-20?

    I am not disagreeing with the fact, that both gauges are a big help but, do they really tell you what is happening to the bearings, rings and cylinders? I don't think the gauges could provide that info w-o uoa or ripping down an engine. Didn't we have a member who used to post here that lost an...

    I'm going with trav on this one. There's too much money riding on an oil pressure gauge for my liking. I mean there's nothing wrong with an oil pressure gauge, or a temp gauge but they aren't infallible are they? I've seen an oil gauge stick, tried two different gauges on an engine and got 2...

    Pennzoil Ultra "no intention of discontinuing"

    With the great base stock they make that stuff out of I wish they offered it in a 0W30.

    0w-30/5w-30/10w-30. Who makes them/ What's best?

    RP is good, there is nothing at all wrong with it that I could think of. Although there are a lot of guys here that hate it for one reason or another.
