    put pzl plat 0-20 in 2012 chevy sonic

    my mpg did go up .1 to 33.9 after 100 miles. My friend knows better but he just does not care, i have known quite a few people like that. Maybe i am the idiot for changing synthetic oil after 7500k considering i know people who put in the cheapest oil they can find and rarely even change the...

    put pzl plat 0-20 in 2012 chevy sonic

    car has 23,500 miles and i wanted to see if oil was as good as M1 0-20 which is my favorite oil. I have seen a .01 increase in mpg in only 100 miles of driving and i am hoping for at least .02. With the exception of turbos, i feel anything from SN 0-20 to 10-30 will be fine in gas engines. My...
