    Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel Fuel

    Why would 2 stroke oil be a waste of time? It is oil, so presumablby has all of the lubricity enhancers intact, and it is made to burn. Using it may be more expensive than other additives, but can't see why it wouldnt be good for the pump, valves, etc.

    you won't believe what synergyn said!!!!!

    I just said that is what it is labled, it has many beneficial properties aside from the octane boost. It is not just your normal alcohol based product. Coming from synergyn I trust it to have higher quality ingrediants than a botlle of Berrryman's or even Techron. It is seems to act more like...

    Pennzoil Platinum 10w-30: bad mileage

    Change in gasoline formulation? New levels of ethanol mandated in pump gas replacing MTBE? Seems a large number of people across the board are reporting decreased gas mileage right now with heat waves going on and AC's on 100% of the time. Summer gas this year is not like summer gas of...

    Synthetic Comparisons

    Adding LS additive when it is not needed can result in an ineffectual LS rear end, worst case it would be not LS at all and be full slip , just like an open diff. Then when you need it, you won't have it, and end up stuck.

    Why one brand?

    As has been stated time and again on this board, brand conciosness was more applicable when oil was refined from specific wells of crude. Now brand conciosness is more about what the physical properties are and trying to fine tune the oil choice to match the needs of the engine and operating...

    Oil Question?

    If the oil is just sitting in an engine not used it oxidizes at a much slower rate than when in use. It will be fine after 3 months, 6 months, ... somewhere on this board is a UOA of oil that had been sitting in a crankcase for x number of years, x>2, and then run and it was perfectly fine. An...

    HDMO, HDEO = Heavy Duty Motor Oil, Heavy Duty Engine Oil. Thes oils typically have either 'C' ratings for diesel engines, or like the straight 30 weight varieties say Heavy Duty or HD on the label. Do not use one unless it also has a corresponding 'S' rating (SG, SH,SJ...) rating on the label...

    Okay to mix conventional and synthetic transmission oil?

    Mercon V is a spec, it says nothing whatsoever about the basestocks used. There are dino Mercon V, blends, and full synthetics that are rated Mercon V.

    valve lash Q & pics

    Last time I remember adjusting valves it was as a kid, and Dad always did it with the engine running. seemed pretty easy that way and seemed to work. Does nobody do it that way anymore? Maybe would not work so well on a slant or V motor?

    nonhonda ATF in a Z1 auto

    maxlife may be recommended for Z1, but it is nowhere near the same in shift feel, and still requires the addition of FM's IMO. Tried it, the shifting was so much worse couldn't wait to get it out.

    The (somewhat) Complete Who Makes What Oil List
