    Drain time, PPM of each drop?

    In the quest for cleaner oil and engine life I'm trying to determine the parts per million of dirty oil and using "fuzzy" math I'm looking for a challenge to my answer.

    This is still on BOGO at ADVANCED here in the Northeast. I looked at Virgin Analysis' and it looks like this may be just an average oil?? At my stage I've determined that, for the most part, FREE things are usually WORTH the price paid! Is that the case here as well? Thanks for any in-put!

    Fram... TOUGH GUARD

    I realize nobody here willfully uses a FRAM, but I'm curious if the TOUGH-GUARD uses the same glued endcaps, or are they of a different design? If anyone here has used their filter cutting tool on one, I would be interested. Thanks!

    Sluggish Power Steering @ Idle

    Would a change to synthetic in an 18 year old truck be worth it or is it probably pump re-placement time for an old G. M. product?

    Low Oil Level Sensor

    I was just reading about Hondas and their oil consumption in a previous thread and with all their high tech variable valve timing etc.,why can't they have a simple sensor so when vehicle is at rest it would measure oil level? Many vehicles have a low washer fluid sensor, but knowing ones' oil...

    Distilled Water

    I'm currently purchasing distilled water for vehicle cooling systems. I run a de-humidifier in the basement and I'm wondering if this is just as good as the distilled that I pay for?
