    Who has used a high viscosity transmission fluid in a LV application?

    I've been using the Pet-Can MV Duradrive in everything since the product came out. I'll switch to their 668 next time. I have an unopened pail of the Chevron HD example to use up first. My usage is about a 5 gallon pail a year, so I'm not a big customer.. edit; IMO low vis ATFs, gear oil and...

    Never owned any BITCOIN or the like- but BTC in the high 18k this morning

    Warren Buffett bought BNSF because for one thing "they can't pull it up and move it offshore".

    Need new all seasons for minivan, is there a noticeable difference between H and V rated Crossclimate 2?

    Typically the slower speed rated tires have a deeper tread and may weigh more. I'm not driving 130mph in the winter, so I don't worry about the speed rating as much as performance on ice and snow.

    Who has used a high viscosity transmission fluid in a LV application?

    To answer the thread starter's question; Yes, and I'm not using any of the "vintage"ATFs. I look for the "HDs" that are suitable or approved for Allison's 995 or 668.

    Needing tires for my 2005 Tahoe

    Going to either 245/75/17 or 235/80/17 should help your mpg. I'm thinking Nitto EXO or Toyo CTs for severe winter and long tire life.

    Oil suggestions for 2021 1.5T GM Ecotech

    Exactly why I went with the 3.6L 2022 Acadia. It's a 5w30 engine to begin with, so I can do pretty much anything I want. 20L pails of Petro-Can Dexos 5w30 are $99 minus canadian tire money, which equates to about $75 USD. M-1 0w40 Dexos is not sold in stores. I see 5w40 as an option. The 2L...

    Oil suggestions for 2021 1.5T GM Ecotech

    I'd say experiment while the car is on warranty. Turbo'd engines don't like exhaust back pressure. To fix the gasoline smelling oil on a 2014 2L Escape I cut everything off behind the downstream O2 sensor, 2 1/2 inch woven flex, 2 3/4 exhaust pipe, 2 1/2 in and out bottle muffler then exited the...

    19 Ram 1500 Classic Tires - 265-70-17

    You may be able to have your cake and eat it too. A slightly taller tire will give you more flex and better ride on the rough stuff, even with a higher cold pressure. I wouldn't go bigger than a 275/70/17 without going to a wider than stock wheel such as a 17x9", but have a look at 255/80/17s...

    Drawbacks/Concerns of HDEO Additive Package in Garden Tractor?

    The Delo 15w40 in question could just as well be labeled as SN, SN plus that passed CK-4 and a host of other Diesel specs.

    Drawbacks/Concerns of HDEO Additive Package in Garden Tractor?

    I was just thinking, if the oil is ok for XXX hours in a 6,000 hp fast ferry engine, it should be good enough for a 22 hp lawn tractor.

    Tire pressure on LT tires

    Your LT tires should outlast the SLs by about double. I wouldn't go below 42psi cold.

    MTU Category 3.1, you don't see that spec on every HDEO.

    And two more pails today. About a 240L stash = 3 + years.

    Any VOA requests?

    Go to the PQIA site and look at the HDEO tests. The 10w40 UHP has the same add pack as the 15w40 HP.

    Shell ad from 1958

    I still do that at age 67. My first Dr Pepper in 1968 was at the north Hill 10 pin bowling alley not far from the USAF base in Minot, ND.

    Oil/Filter suggestion for John Deere S240 w/Kawasaki 21.5 hp.

    The S240 should have the 726 Kawasaki V2 with a conventional oil filter. The quick change system is on the 724cc in S120/130, S160 and S170/180 models. On my 726cc/X320 I used 15w40 this time around.

    Two 5 gal pails of T5 15w40 @ $84Cdn minus $5 each in Canadian Tire money. Before tax and save the whales etc, it works out to about $60USD/pail.
