    Do you live in an area with "exotic" cars?

    Most exotic thing here is a Jimmy/Blazer that probably has more HP than my Cummins, and John Deere Gator on the other side.

    Can Pentosin LV ATF 1 fluid be used in a older Ford power steering system?

    I don't have any expertise in the matter, but I treat PSF as a simple hydraulic system, and those things take anything from ATF to 15w40. I run Maxlife in my vehicles (based on cost), the jeep is filled with 0w20, since that's all I had when it blew a seal. Oddly enough the seal is holding it...

    How often do you change rear diff fluid

    After initial 15ish k mi, every 50k seems reasonable. Gives me something fun to do since my truck doesn't see heavy use ( tow under 1% total use), and don't haul over 2 tons. I do pull the plugs about every oil change and clean the magnets though. I'd still shoot for 50k if I used it to its full...

    2021 CRV 1.5t Castrol 0w40 6k mi

    Yes, these dilute heavily. They can't warm up for nothing, in a 35 degree day, the heater will drop the gauge back to cold within a drive through visit.

    First oci was at 600mi with qs 5w40 That ran 3k, put in some 5w30 ish mix qs and rtgt last one was the same oil. This car sees a healthy mixed driving, including 1 hr hwy runs, has no excuse to yield a 3cst drop in viscosity, but it is an earth dream. Refilled with the same, want to see a...

    How far over the MAX oil fill mark...

    Buddy of mine took his XL7 to an indy and was always spot on at oil change time. Scratched my head, because he was always a quart low when I did it. Turns out it was overfilled preemptively. I started doing the same on that thing, perfect every time since 😄. My IS250 wound put a solid quart of...

    Thank you, I wasn't planning to let anyone touch my car though. I learned my lesson with Lexus Certified hamfist.

    What brand diesel fuel you diesel owners using?

    Space age is beating the prices of red diesel around here. Costco is not worth the 3 or 4 cents difference for the lines. When abroad, I stick to Chevron mostly, but that's based on good luck with gasoline. Whatever I do, I always use Power Service, pays for itself and then some.

    Delvac Extreme 15w40 after 1k mi. 6.7 Cummins

    Now that you mention it, I did notice the engine is making quite the racket, at least when cold, since I dumped it.

    I honestly thought it was going to be a "people of Walmart" thread. Less amusing, but I do like the facial expression.

    Fuel injector cleaner

    While I can't remember exactly at what point, but my old IS250 would lose power, and would regain it after a B12 chemtool to the tank treatment. Ran Kirkland/Chevron top tier, so that whole argument of gas is additized enough isn't true. I would always test the car on the same hill, speed set on...

    Newer BMW M3 batteries cost $1900?

    I'm curious about that. I have a lithium in my bike, had it for probably 6 years now. Never gave me grief, no signs of imminent death, even after sitting for well over 6 months untouched.
