    That song in that terribly obnoxious t shirt commercial on youtube

    I cant seem to find it on youtube. For weeks until , perhaps a week ago, it was all over as an ad on the vids I was watching. It featured right in the beginning an dude dressed in obnoxious douche style; tight jeans and tight t shirt, baseball cap, standing between a gas pump and a pickup...

    Still possible to find stocks of the "old" Mobil 1 10w-30 and the 'old" Valvoline Synthetic high milage 10w-30 that still meet ACEAA3?

    Still possible to find stocks of the "old" Mobil 1 10w-30 and the 'old" Valvoline Synthetic high milage 10w-30 that still meet ACEAA3? IN the last few months they seem to be replaced by GF6 oil. I have in front of me my last bottle of Mobil 1 10w-30 HM, ACEA A3. The ones in the stores I see now...

    Mobil 1 high milage 10w-30 has changed

    Couple months ago I had been very interested in Mobil1 Hi milage in 10w-30, it being one of the few 30 weight oils that are ACEA A3 rated (and both my vehicles are clearly high milage) But when I looked at the shelf at walmart and checked the back of the M1 10w-30 Hi Mi jugs low and behold the...

    Vehicle stored for 4 months

    I have a Nissan Xterra with the 4.0L that was stored for 4 months. I pretreated the fuel (3/4s tank) with a bottle of Seafoam as a stabilizer and just in case also used premium (in case of octance decay due to loss of light fractions).. Also the vehicle has been historically kept very clean in...

    Redline fans

    There is a sale on redline in Advanzed Auto, all over, at prices little over M1. This will go into my super charged 04 350Z (ATI w/ 7 lbs pulley). I love the concept of a nice strong VII-free 10w-40 Redline, for this application, but am scurred by some of the UOA's it has had. Any...

    2004 Nissan 350Z getting ProCharger,

    I just made a deposit on an ATI ProCharger for my Nissan 350Z. (A little background, the Mechanicals on the ProCharger are a bit less maxed out than on the Vortec for my car, but Vortec is cheaper and more complete as it ads a timing solution to the fuel solution that both have. Can get a deal...

    Here a good one

    I have been researching various forvced induction Mods for my new 350Z and among others I been eyeing the Turbonetics Single Turbo kit. I figured I would run M1 15w-50 in summer and M1 0w-40 in winter with it. But they <do> have a Turbonetics brand oil, which seems to have no viscosity #'s...

    Took the plunge to synthetic early

    My first oil change was at 1000 miles (break in with 5w-30 bulk Dino oil). My next change was at 2500 miles, figuring to get rid of the last break -in residuals, that may be in the crank case. Also I was getting increasingly nervous about running my engine on 5w-30 dino juice, as much as I like...

    The 10w-40 Syntec

    Meets some impressive specs. Heard a couple of guys say good things about it, someone even said it might have group IV in it? I like the tighter spread vs M1 0w-40. Anyone have a take on this oil? Fred.. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Smile]" src="images/icons/smile.gif" />
