    New pennzoil oils

    I said "I think" and "I believe ", implying opinion as opposed to specific knowledge. As far as I know, it's still OK to offer opinion on public message boards. Please let me know if BITOG prohibits this.

    Valvoline NextGen Conventional

    Safety Kleen is one that I attempted to buy. A large chain of brake and muffler shops in my old home town used it. They weren't interested in selling me any though unless I was bringing my car in for an oil change special. Retailing quarts or even a couple of cases wasn't their thing.

    Valvoline NextGen Conventional

    I've actually been interested in using recycled oil at several times in the past. Problem has always been price and availability. NextGen was the only one I could find on the shelf at same or even higher prices as premium conventional. All other variations were either available only at...

    How drunk do you have to be to do this?

    I read Keith's autobiography "Life". According to the book, he was able to make arrangements with an artist couple who were on the list of registered heroin addicts. In exchange for lodging in his caretaker's cottage, they upped their allotments of pharmaceutical grade heroin and syringes...

    Waterproof Grease --Aluminum or Calcium Complex

    I always used Bel Ray on the dirt bikes. I believe it was an aluminum compound and it was commonly available at motorcycle shops.

    How do you like your turbo car?

    1.3l Firefly in my 2019 Renegade TH has been a treat to drive. Plenty of grunt down low to make city driving painless. It's no performance engine. Gets all its work done low in the rev range then signs off early. Makes a great urban errand runner as well as a pretty good backroad explorer.

    VW508.00 oil change candy, dealer oil change kit w/price and part#s

    I like plastic drain plugs! There, I've said it. I worked with them for 30 years on industrial equipment. Even on gearboxes in a steel mill, with red hot billets rolling by, no problems. The good part is that it's impossible for a lube tech to strip out your oil pan threads. He'll owe you a...
