    Synlube VOA Attempt - Set-Up Thread

    Would a spectral analysis show all of this stuff? I stay in contact with an old college chemistry prof. of mine and could probably have him run one on it (although I would be useless as teets on a boar at analyzing it).

    Has anyone else noticed that all of the Synlube sycophants have a very poor grasp of the English language?

    Honda 07 Civic Si oil consumption

    From what I have read most K20 variants burn a little bit of oil. My car burns less that 1/2qt over a 10,000mi OCI (K20A3 in EP3, I know it is the low performance version of the K20) but I am not worried about it. As little consumption as you are getting, I would just continue to use whatever...

    Anyone done extended OCI on PP

    I run PP 7500-10,000mi in my Civic depending on the conditions I drive in. During stop and go I keep it around 7500, but if a lot of the miles are highway I run it 10,000mi, heck that is what the manual recommends for dino. I also only change filters once every other change (running PureOnes I...

    Amsoil extended intervals vs. buyer stigma

    I always ask for full service records and won't buy without them. Before coming here I wouldn't have touched a car using even 10,000mi OCI regardless of the oil, filter, or UOA results. Now I would happily buy such a car provided the UOAs are included and all showed reasonable wear. I still...

    0W20, 5W30, 5W40 and 10w30 for Honda Civic.

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> Exactly Jon, It’s MY OPINION which I don’t have to justify to you with any “evidence.” I didn’t make any “claims”, say anything negative about 0W20, or “That 0w-20 isn't good for any engine that makes peak power at 8000rpm.” I said that “I wouldn’t use it in an 8000...

    longest lasting A/T tires

    Although it may not be the best for all out traction in any one category anymore I always got around 65K or ~2 years out of my 31x10.5R15 BFG All Terrain TA KOs (down to 4/32" when I generally change my tires) on my '95 5.8L Bronco. I had the best luck rotating every 6k (I do it myself) and...

    General Tire's Exclaim UHP

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> It's rated #1 in it's catagory <hr /></blockquote> Remember, it is only #1 in customer surveys, in TireRack testing it got beat by the Ecsta SPT and Yokohama AVS ES100 (which is old, albeit good technology). Jon

    Best oil for around $3 or less?

    Pennzoil Platinum is only $1.99 after Mail-in-Rebate at Pep Boys right now. Despite all the horror stories I have heard about their rebate program, I got mine in only 4 weeks. Jon

    Subaru and new OCI's Required.

    <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> <blockquote>Quote:<hr /> A 3.75 month oci seems like a waste, even for an STi, since my car is only driven 1-2x per week, which equals about 1000mi in that time period. <hr /></blockquote> Which is why a good quality conventional oil (or a great deal on synthetic), is...
