    Looks like the holiday Kingsford charcoal sale is back, and Home Depot looks to be the leader this time-$17.99 for two 20 pound bags. Good thing, too, I was on my last one!

    Amazon Makita electric mower, 4 batteries, $399

    Well, I finally did it, destroyed my old Craftsman push mower, snapped the blade in HALF instantly on an old tree stump (my own stupid fault), bent the crank/or jumped time. Fortunately for me, Amazon has this incredible deal-the Makita XML03CM1 mower, with FOUR 4.0 AH batteries & a charger, for...

    Discount Tire Direct sale, possibly including rebate!

    Might be worth taking a look at DTD if you need some cheap new rubber-I just scored 4 new Yokohama Avid Touring S tires for my son's Accord, around $250 OTD including tax, OH disposal fees, & 3 years of road hazard. $110 off, no rebate required (although Goodyear and Cooper have that too). Move...

    Oregon road tax pilot program?

    Oregon is starting a pilot program that charges 1.8 cents/mile & $43/year, guessing on EVs-good deal? Or not good deal? https://www.oregon.gov/odot/Programs/Pages/OReGO.aspx Edit: I see it is only EV & so-called "high mileage" 40+ MPG vehicles-and apparently they're jacking up registration fees...

    Here comes the MC FL-820S test...

    Apparently, my Fram Ultra luck must be running out-I have been having worsening ADBV action with an XG2 on the MGM in my sig, a 4.6 2V. It got bad enough that just a couple hours of sitting was enough to get the dreaded timing chain slap. The Magnatec 5W20 only has about 3000 miles on it, so on...

    Pronto P04612 cut open

    This filter is from member JT20's Subaru, maybe he will chime in with mileage, oil, and application? Looks really clean inside, can gave my cutter fits for some reason, but side cutters finished the cut. No tears, coil spring inside, no tears (or even carbon) at all. Nitrile ADBV nice and soft...

    Help me talk him out of it...

    My son wants to get rid of his old XJ (in my sig) & replace it with a 2013 Challenger (not Hemi, 3.6 Pentastar) with 113K. Looking online, electrical problems like the TIPM, junky alternators, and wonky power window switches & smart window modules seem common. I told him he was going from one of...

    Virgin XG3600 cut open

    For our friend Adam (car 51)-I have fair number of these, so this is my minor contribution. Date code is A23243, was sealed in it's shiny (fairly) new box. Now, everybody stay safe out there! <img...

    Service Champ OF2222 75% OLM, unknown miles

    This little "gem" of an Ecore was on the Express 6.0 in my sig when I bought it, it had approximately 5000 miles or so, 25% OLM remaining, but the Jiffy Lube used NON-Dexos rated bulk 5W30 QSAD/green bottle, along with this filter. It caught some crud, but ADBV action was failing (noisy startup...

    PH10060 oversized?

    Anybody ever use an FL-500S size filter in place of a PH10060 (GM 6.0 liter L96 application)? I have four Purolator Synthetic PSL22500 filters that are very similar in size (although slightly longer), have the same threads (M22-1.5), even similar bypass ratings (22 PSI). Wondering if it's worth...

    Ford IDI diesel starters

    Got a bad one on the F-450/Super Duty in my sig, just wondering what people have had luck with? I've read good things about DB Electrical, both on Amazon & eBay, like to hear people's experiences.

    Ford 3.7 thrown rods?

    Apparently our leased Transit 250 vans have had an issue with throwing rods (not mine), it's happened to 2 engines, both under 50K miles. Has anyone heard of any problems with these? The one in my '18 has always sounded like it has loose rod bearings since day one, I've been tempted to slip in a...

    XG3600 7562 mi. approx 10 months

    Off the xB in my sig-there was a chip in the Sure Grip that showed the start of a little rust, so I changed it out earlier than usual. This filter doesn't stick below the oil pan, but it is in the front, protected only by the plastic splash pan.
