    75W140 and my Toyota Sienna

    I am getting ready to change the differential and transfer case fluid in my AWD Sienna. Service manual calls for GL-5 75W-85, so I am sure that the Mobil-1 75W90 GL-5 gear oil will be just dandy.

    Extra 0w-20...good time to try the CATERHAM blend?

    I have a case of M1 0W-40 SM that I blend with newer M1 0W-20 for my 05 Prius. Here in moderate NC is works well with about a 50/50 blend. Once I run out of 0W-40 I'll probably just use M1 0W-30 out of the bottle. I go with 8k to 10k OCI's btw.

    I have two Prius, a Gen 2 and a C, and they both get changed at 10K. The oil doesn't even look very dirty at that mileage.

    Here's where the semanitcs and spin come in !

    Yes, I think it does matter what kind of guns are being used in homicides. Because once the debate starts in earnest, numbers and "facts" are are going to start flying. Having accurate metrics is going to be highly important I think.
