    Castrol Magnatec Lexus DI application

    So I recently purchased a 2012 Lexus IS250 premium. These are equipped with a 2.5 DI motor. About two years back I switched to Fram ultra in all of my vehicles and will do the same with this one. I'm curious if Castrol Magnatec 0w-20 would be a good choice? Looks like a very stout oil and we'll...

    Mannich fuel additive

    Recently read an article which discussed how an additive called Mannich is much more effective than PEA. I see that afton chemical is a producer, but a intensive search only turned up a couple obscure products that claim to contain it. Is it really that much better vs PEA? What products contain it?

    Mobil 1 TDT vs Mobil Delvac 1300

    I am interested in running a different oil in my 08 Duramax. I had originally decided on Mobil 1 TDT as I've heard good things from other fellow Dmax owners. But looking at the specs between it and conventional Delvac 1300, I'm left scratching my head. The lesser 1300 has a higher flash point(...
