Coming from an older set i think you are right..
(i dont like believing everything that i read but..) supposedly the Picture quality is lesser on the 900H than the previous 900F and also lesser than the 950G and 950H.
From what i gather the 900H gains the HDMI 2.1 and the new TV tuner that...
Speaking of OLED.. rtings just reviewed the Vizio OLED.
Personally i am good with LED.
My current dilemma is the TCL 635 vs the Sony 950H.
The thrifty guy in me wants the 635 but the quality guy in me wants the 950H.
The 900H is the...
Not an expert but to me it just looks like it got thicker?
Also would be curious to know if 0w40 over 20K miles would have paid for itself in fuel mileage?
FYI- your personal details are on the UOA.
I have been in the market for a new 65 inch for about 3 months. I am an avid reader of https://www.reddit.com/r/4kTV/ and i also go to rtings and avsforum
Here is where I am with the process.
Hisense- H9G- amazing picture at the cost of panel lottery and longevity.
TCL R635- amazing...
After owning over 25 dump trucks and tractors my advice is that engine oil is the least of your concerns.
Rotella T4 or Delvac or Delo 15w40 are all within a flip of a coin of being 'Best'.
Pay more attention to clean fuel and clean air and status of your coolant and liners.
If corn is so bad why are we still growing so much of it?
Before Christopher Columbus it fed the 'Americans' North and South for nearly 10000 years. After that it fed the world.
Why are we growing so much? It does more than 'feed people' now. It feeds livestock, We use it to make Liquor...
I have read posts on Honda/Toyota/Saturn with the same issues and i have yet to see anyone with success. I think some guys even pulled the pistons and soaked them and the carbon remained until manual cleaning.
Since the problem is ongoing i doubt that any oil will reverse the process.
VW 508.00 to my understanding is to 'help' the fleet mpg.
Quoting another poster here " VW508.00/509.00 is ridiculously easy spec to meet. There is NOTHING in that spec that is special except that increases mpg. "
Its possible someone screwed up somewhere.. not sure what 'on sale' means but at this website its $85 for 4 gallons
and its only F2 whatever that means.
Looks to be industrial/commercial usage.

" It's more noticeable in the cold weather" " I am using she'll rotella t5 10w30"
Have you tried a thinner oil?
" It does consume oil"
Top off with MMO see if that lessens the noise.
I have had a few 7.3s. I would NOT enjoy listening to that diesel engine on a vacation.
When/if things go wrong... its expensive..
The Excursion 7.3 was only sold for 3.5 yrs.. no idea how many were produced but its not alot.
I would like to see pics of the dipstick and the wipe cloth.. I have had about 25 80s and 90s dump trucks and tractors but they were not fresh at all. most if not all the oil was black within seconds of a fresh change.
Do you or someone else do the oil changes? I have seen some old timers...
