    Motorcycle filter on a car?

    Here's a silly question that I couldn't really find the answer to. Could I use a Hiflo motorcycle oil filter in place of an OEM oil filter for my truck? I know it physically spins on the truck and in fact the Hiflo has all the same dimensions, micron rating, etc as the OEM, using filter cross...

    UOA 2020 Nissan Armada, factory fill 0W-20

    Holy molybdenum, Batman! That's either Japanese market Idemitsu 0W-20 or there's some moly assembly paste from the factory. The MIJ Nissan filter did its thing.

    Paint Protection Film (PPF)

    Bought a brand new Armada and shopped around for PPF as I wanted to give it a whirl in order to protect the bumpers and hood. Never done PPF before, so I did some shopping and found an installer with an excellent online reputation (mostly window tinting) and having been in business for 20+...

    2016 Honda Gold Wing F6B, ongoing UOA

    Bought new in Nov 2018. Sadly, I didn't capture the initial oil change last summer but this Spring, even though it had low miles I did a UOA for curiosity's sake. The first oil change revealed a noticeable amount of sparkly flakes and debris in the drain pan. Just wanted to get a UOA and see if...

    Little bit more of everything going on here, despite the SN rating. Blackstone called it Premium Blue on the report, but it's not. This is the white bottle Valvoline HD Diesel oil. <img...

    Shell Rotella T5 CK4 15W-40 and 10W-30

    Here's a two'fer of T5 Rotella. The 15W-40 I was testing for my truck and the 10W-30 for my motorcycle, trying to follow Honda's recommendation of no moly in the oil (yes I realize it's not JASO MA rated). The 10W-30 indeed had no (significant) moly so I'll probably try it out after my Actevo...

    Color difference?

    Just sending away two different HDEO samples for VOA (since I haven't seen these two particular flavors' reports, yet) and noticed a big difference in color/hue of the two oils. Rotella T6 and Delvac ESP were both a darker amber like the Delo is, haven't seen anything quite as light as the...

    Mobil Delvac ESP 5W-40 CK4 (synthetic) VOA

    Virgin Oil Analysis just recently completed, CK4 formula purchased a couple months ago. Figured I'd share, an updated VOA from one I saw while lurking last year. On paper, looks decent enough but in the flesh, it's really a nice oil. Actually smells kind of sweet, like candy, and it hushes up...
