    Edge 5W-30 10k miles '13 F150 5.0

    My last OCI was about 13k miles and it looked pretty good. This OCI was only 10.2k miles but the engine was worked hard for many more of the miles. It's a heavy truck (for a half ton) and is loaded heavy or pulling heavy loads more often than in the past. Some of the elements (silicon, sodium...

    Tick Collars that Really Work

    I've had excellent results with Seresto collars, too. I believe this was the 5th year using them and they are well worth the premium cost.

    Sorry, Shannow. We're hoping things work out somehow and maybe you can have a better 3rd anniversary there.

    Andrew Camarata cuts open his diesel filters

    The filter cutting part....meh. I didn't think anything of it. I've never heard of the guy but I watched a large portion of the linked video and really enjoyed it. Neat job, nice editing and loved the views from his drone. Thanks for the video!

    Why no love for Castrol GTX Diesel 15w-40???

    Yup it was called Hypuron until a couple years ago. When CK-4 rolled out, they changed the name to Vecton. CK-4 has brought everything up a few notches but 10 years ago Hypuron was an enormous improvement for me. I extended my drains yet oxidation remained much more stable and TBN held high. It...
