I see in some places people recommend the Multi Vehicle, while others say only +4. Amazon currently has a sale on the Multi vehicle ($4.44 a q), and was wondering if this would...

    Castrol E-Pods

    Looks interesting and its a very good idea for storing a few different types in a small area, but they are always at the upper end of pricing. Even more money for us wholesalers than Liqui Moly or Mobil. <a href=""...

    Would you rent or take your own vehicle?

    Going back and forth in my mind. Maybe you guys can give a different look on it. Weve been going to Virginia every year, renting a house on Smith Mountain Lake.

    Well I guess the 642 like to throw some iron around. I was wondering if my tune had something to do with the higher numbers, but its not really much worse than whats on the board already. Im going to resample with the M1 0/30 I put in to see any difference, but I doubt it. Well see in a year...

    This was visible from my house miles away. Lit the sky up all night long, very sad to see a historic building go down. Someone reported temps from the highway a few hundred feet away went from 6 to 60 degrees! 8 alarms were called. <a href=""...
