    Good DIY forum?

    Ahhh yes, definitely a joke. Are you trying to say that I am not funny? :)

    "Full" branded Transmission filter for my 5EAT Subaru transmission?

    I know that most insist on only OEM oil and trans filters for Subarus and I have largely followed that rule. This time was no exception. I ordered what I thought was a 38325AA032 OEM transmission filter for my Subaru. Now I understand that the OEM filter is intended to be lifetime but I am...

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    The intent is to be a braggart even if it doesn't make financial sense. Instead of look at my burnout and my quarter mile time (neither of which make financial sense either) I want to shift to something new. I have other vehicles for that sort of duty. I guess you didn't look at my previous...

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    Hahahahaahahaha! Funny you mention it. I just switched to 0W-20 M1 AFE on my 213k 2nd gen Prius. No appreciable gain. It's probably cause my wife uses the car for a trash can and is loaded with starbucks cups and McDonald's bags though.

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    It's the valve bodies on these. The job isn't actually that bad even for a slow old turd like me. A synthetic with low cSt. Even Maxlife is not as thin as the original.

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    Did anyone actually look at the link I posted in my original post for user AZsynthetic? Was he lying when he says that he obtained much more MPG than just 1mpg by going thinner?

    I understand that but was wondering how far I could push it up.

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    I don't care about costs. I care about MPG in the end. A pointless hobby....yes...just like the burnouts I did when I was 20. Heck this is much cheaper. No speeding tickets!

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    ...because the Auto trans is like $3500 and It's not worth my time cherry picking the motor and selling it to some covid ridden maskless stranger who will need to take a dump in my bathroom because he traveled 1000 miles without stopping for $500. Thanks for the tips, but kill is a relative...

    Oil for max fuel economy? ALH VW TDI

    I am glad that you are getting this everyone. I am really trying to cut off my finger to save my hand (hopefully just a fingertip) to save fuel because I am bored...as bored as I was doing doughnuts in a parking lot when I was 20 and I want to say it got 50 mpg. It's already getting 47 mpg on...
