    Castrol $10 rebate

    A while back I had some leftover bottles with ½ to 1 quarts in them i.e. Valvoline, M1, Liquid Moly, others in various weights i.e. 0W20, 5W30. After I drained my old oil, I put in the 6 quart concoction with a bottle of MMO and let the engine run for 15-20 minutes, then drained it for about an...

    Supertech MP Maximum Protection 20K miles filters

    I bought a MP7317 oil filter today. The side of the box referenced Fram 7317, Mobil 110A and K&N 1010, all filters that I have used. The new-gem Titans like a high flow oil filter. $15+ every 5,000 miles for a high-flow RP or K&N is a little pricey. I saw a YouTube video with a cut up MP oil...

    Supertech MP Maximum Protection 20K miles filters

    My ‘19 Titan can use the Fram XG7317, but the Walmart app says the Supertech MP7317 will not work. Wonder why that is?

    Triax Synergy SRT 0w20 or 30 VOA?

    Tried it 2 years ago. Did not leave it in long enough for a UOA. Engine was loud upon startup. Swapped it out 2 weeks later and things were back to normal.

    K&N motor oil

    Ordered 1 gal. jug and some single qts. last week. Ordering it this qualified for some sort of discount and it was cheaper to get it this way directly from K&N vs. ordering two 1 gal. jugs.

    K&N motor oil

    I have owned 4 of the series 2 Nissan Titans. They tend to be a little noisy until the engine is fully warmed up. Along with other brands, I used Ams SS a couple of times, and it tended to burn it. I tried K&N 0W20 and the engine is quiet cold and does not burn any for the 4-5,000 duration. I...

    Nano Pro MT Oil Stabilzer

    I bought a couple bottles on sale 2 years ago. It turned the oil almost black immediately, Oh so I did not use it anymore in my vehicle. I use it in my old lawn more now and it honestly runs like a new mower. It is quieter with less vibration. Not so sure what it did in my automotive dancing...

    Boxed Havoline now available in full synthetic!

    I tried out a 6 qt box of the 0W20 today. Attached a close-able spout on the box opening and adjusted the flow volume into the funnel going in the crankcase. Very easy. Just laid the box on the engine cover. I took the funnel and put into the empty Havoline box and poured the dirty oil in, then...

    Toyota 5.7L, 0w-20 noisy, STP to thicken?

    Likewise, I switched from M1 0W-20 to Pennzoil Platinum 0W-20 and my cold startup lifter tick almost disappeared. Then, I added STP Synthetic Oil Treatment and now it's completely gone.

    17 Kia Sportage: Purolator One vs Purolator Boss for a regular OCI

    I like the Fram Ultra's, too. For the past 2 years, I've been using MicroGreen oil filters. The oil doesn't start turning dark until 7-8,000 miles.
