    New car for my wife.

    I'd also favor Mazda, they are lately somewhat integrated into Toyota brand and are very competitive with Toyota on features, quality and pricing. Personally, I'm looking forward to Mazda CX-70 intro in the near future, will be interesting to see how it's priced.

    Why is rotella hated by some?

    I used to have 600cc Yamaha bike between 2005-2010, bought new, I recall using T6 15w-40 and it didn't use oil, rode it 6 months a year. Used same oil in my '97 2.sl0w Jetta too, very little oil use even at 375k km before I traded it in.

    How would you feel on the interstate being followed by a driverless autonomous tractor trailer

    Parking Ticket - Case Dismissed!

    Phone and app use should not be mandatory as not everyone has a cell phone or a 'smart' one. Imho, if they want you to use call phone and app - they must provide you with a phone with app.

    Russian Sub w/ Ukrainian porthole

    The sub was reportedly hit by Storm Shadow - a UK supplied cruise missile. UK also supplies them with sea drones. As far as personnel loses, I understand UA lost between 500k and 1M including personnel unable to return to service, not just dead. Russia may have lost about 1/6th of that, that's...

    Alternative methods to fight inflation

    Imho, when prices go way up average Joe cannot afford as much thus buying less and less. You most likely noticed how empty malls are and many closed all together. Increasing production of consumer goods does little as prices are still high, if they cannot sell product they produce what's gonna...

    Best option for oil and filter 2022 Kia Seltos EX (heavy usage)? Inline 4 base AWD model no turbo. 0W-20 oil

    What you can do is to get oil analyzed as you go say every 2k miles to see how bad fuel dilution is and what oil viscosity it's at that point. It's possible that dilution will make oil dangerously thin within first 2k miles on fresh oil. A little thicker oil cannot hurt engine, while thinner...

    Regane HM: Regane Complete: my guess is concentration is different, no benefit of getting 12oz bottle.

    Is there a list of ACEA A3 or A5 approved oils anywhere?

    What will your Subi and friends' Civics actually benefit from when using A5 oil over C3? I see C3 oil as superior to A5 in those cars.
