    G-Oil 5W30, 9003 mi, 2005 KIA Spectra

    I know G-Oil has a few "generations" of formulations, so for clarity, the G-Oil I used was in this jug... <img src="http://h2savecom.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/screen-shot-2012-07-12-at-4-22-56-pm.png" alt="" /> Other notes: Car has K&N air filter which has been replaced with a Fram air...

    Pretty solid score, methinks.

    I've been frequenting the clearance corner in the auto section in the Walmart in northeast Tallahassee where there were two shelves with Valvoline NextGen, NextGen Maxlife, and G-Oil in a nix of 5W20 and 5W30. I watched it over a few months and none of it moved, complete with dust to show. I...

    Change it or leave it a little longer?

    Hey everyone, I have a question. I currently have about 9000 mostly highway miles on a fill of G-Oil Black Jug 5W30 (pictured below) with a PureOne filter on my Kia. <img src="http://h2savecom.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/screen-shot-2012-07-12-at-4-22-56-pm.png" alt="" /> The oil has been...

    AE86 Corolla Time Capsule

    How neat is this... an all original AE86 Toyota Corolla GT with, yes, you're reading right, 48 original kilometers on the odometer. A reminder of just how simple cars used to be just 25 years ago. <a...

    Friend backed into my car...

    It's not really that bad, and more of an inconvenience, really. I was at a friend's house for breakfast and he had to leave to run a quick errand... he then comes back in the house and asks me outside. I saw the right rear quarter of his Volvo XC70 with a mark and cracked tail light, and my...

    Middle School Football...

    and the tricks they pull...this will never work again! <div class="video-container"><iframe frameborder="0" width="640" height="360" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/0UIdI8khMkw" allowfullscreen></iframe></div> I think that team still ended up losing the game, though.

    Oil for 1985 Chevy 6.2L Fire Rescue/Brush truck

    So I just joined a Volunteer Fire Department (Midway VFD, Midway FL) and being the good BITOGer that I am, I checked out the fluids. OOOH, oil was a quart lower and more black than sin. It was supposedly serviced before they acquired the truck from Forestry in December... I don't recall the...

    Syntec in a scooter?

    I scored a couple of $2 quarts of Syntec 10W40 and was wondering your thoughts on running it in a 250cc scooter. Maybe for a shorter oci? It has a dry clutch, water-cooled, usually ridden in the mornings with the occasional afternoon stroll. It's either going in this or a 95 Honda Accord...

    Kymco People S 250, 1412mi, Mobil1 4T Racing 10W40

    This is my first UOA ever, woohoo! Anyways, just bought this scooter last month from someone who bought it in May. I wanted to get a baseline for oil changes. This looks great to me. Looks to be able to do 3K changes on this oil with little difficulty. I use it on most mornings (when it is...
