    4718M Spec.

    So what exactly qualifies an oil to meet GM 4718M? My thoughts is that GM wants it to be a synthetic oil to even meet the spec. What if a dino meet the criteria but wasnt "synthetic" so is it automatically disqualified? Also of the brands that "meet" the spec they are all 5w30 or 10w30 does...

    Homebrew

    I have 4 gallons of Delvac 1300 15w40 and 13 quarts of Quaker State Synthetic 5w20. I was thinking about combining them 50/50 and using in my 2009 V6 Frontier Pickup which calls for 5w30 year round. My theory is they would mix to a 10w30. I am pretty sure it would be OK but wanted some...

    What is your favorite general purpose lube?

    I used to always had WD-40 on hand, I switched to LPS for a few years. Now I have a couple cans of Rem-oil (Remington gun oil in a spray can) that are going empty. I need to pick up some decent prenetrating oil/multi purpose lube. What do you all use?
