    So what's the "go-to" PEA based fuel additive? Indirect and direct injection engines...

    I know techron and redline were the go-to's backing the day with Gumout lately coming back into the picture. I was wondering what is the one to get or look at now days?

    Storing motor oil, how long should it last?

    I'm saying I'm in need of an oil change within the next 6 months. I don't mean hoard it when we see it. Basically a year ago, we would say well I need an oil change tomorrow, let me get some today. Now we need to plan a head for that OCI

    Storing motor oil, how long should it last?

    Sorry for the redundant thread but if buying oil and wanting to use it within say 6 months or so, how long should it really last? Id guess upon using it, I should give it a good shake or is that even really needed? We're at the point where we need to buy oil when we see it, not when we need...

    Battle of silicone greases for caliper slide pins

    As many of you may have seen already, Im in the search for new greases for brake jobs here and there. I thought this might need its own post- since its specific.

    Looking for a Sil-Glyde replacement for brakes...

    Hmm lol. So I just found out that I SHOULDN'T have greased my wifes caliper pins. Its that style where the pin is exposed slightly/ semi floating... Its the ATE caliper style.
