    OW-16 vs 0W-20 viscosity specs - does it really matter.

    If engine noise is greater with the 16w, I'd think about using the 20w.

    Home landscaping around house

    Different strokes. If they ain't broke; Don't "Fix" 'em. Work with what you got. 02 PS Just saw your pic. Very nice, natural look, as is. Trim or add plants as you like. Losing your landscape loses your property value.

    Please help sort my thoughts about buying a new car.

    This^^^^^^^^^^^^. I'd buy a new Toyota with a "real", 8 speed, transmission. I'd wait, if you can, prices may come down, slightly.

    Looks good. Pay your money and take your choice with a robust 20W or thin 30W. Is the Amsoil thickening?

    Looks good for the drives. Shear don't mean nuthin', unless, VIS is waaaay down. Your wear numbers are good.

    You're right. They changed it, again. That 5-20 vis at 8, on the data sheet, doesn't look right.

    Mobil1 0w-20EP 3.4k mil; Acura RDX 2020

    Bad news and Good news. The good news is that wear metals seem OK and you made a good call on the 3400 oci. Perhaps you can find a thicker 0-20 (PUP 0w-20) for your short ocis. .02
