    Green GC in Ottawa, Canada

    nobadges: if you're looking for it, the stash I found was in the southkeys walmart. darkjedi: didn't get in on the $4 autozone sale? Gase2: good point about the litre. My point however was that at >$6USD a quart, it's not worth it to me to get green GC when the gold stuff is available...

    Oil Change Interval Question - VW 2.0T

    basically, I'm saying do at most 10k OCIs, to maintain your warranty. Make sure you choose an oil that is VW/Audi approved for your vehicle. if the UOA says you can do 10k OCIs or beyond, then do the 10k OCIs. Otherwise, do whatever the UOA dictates, be it 7.5k or 5k or whatever.

    Oil Change Interval Question - VW 2.0T

    If you want what's best, figure out the best OCI via used oil analysis. If the UOA tells you you can do more than 10k OCIs, stick with what's in the owner's manual. Otherwise, run the oil at the OCIs that the UOAs dictate.

    Running Redline 5/30 in my Suby, just add ARX or change oil to dino?

    Huh? BlazerLT, no one is telling him to not follow instructions. Adding ARX to the redline oil IS following instructions. It doesn't make the ARX less potent, nor would he be using it "in a less than optimal way" Just follow instructions on ARX's site. You are fine to keep the redline in during...

    whoa didn't mean to step on any toes... sorry about that. I should have grabbed a sample of the previous owner's oil, I know. Any benefit in getting a sample of the A-RX clean phase drain? moribundman: getting the clips off wasn't a big challenge. it was getting them back on. <a...
