    Is Warren still producing Walmart's Super Tech oils? Amalie is on the bottles at my local Wallyworld.

    Would a Fram be bad for my Jetta?

    Yes, a FRAM would be bad for your Jetta. Euro applications appear challenging for the FRAM design team. Stick to the German OEM manufacturers for your filters. Amazon is a good source.

    Fram Core filters any good

    Bottom of the barrel filters. I'd pick up a Wix built Super Tech for a $1.80 more next time.

    STP S9972 and Purolator Boss PBL25608 2011 Rav4

    Good looking filters. I wouldn't hesitate to use either on your RAV4. The last FRAM Ultra I installed on my Camry had some suspiciously wide pleat spacing. Clearly a QC issue. We'll see how it looks at the end of the OCI.

    Canister filter surprise. Cts 3.6

    Quite a few failed FRAM filters in BMW and other Euro cartridge applications have been posted on here in the past. But I've been using FRAM in my Camry cartridge filter application for a number of years with good results. I'd stay away from FRAM in more rigorous duty applications like your...

    Canister filter surprise. Cts 3.6

    I think you have a poorly designed aftermarket oil filter there. Try an OEM filter and compare the results. Please remember to post a photo here of an AC Delco at the end of the next OCI.

    What's up with Mobil deserting the LL-01 market?

    On Mobil's website and thought I'd query their "Find the right oil" for my BMW application. This came up... "Based on what you've told us, your vehicle manufacturer recommends a 0W-30, 0W-40, 5W-30 or 5W-40 viscosity and oil that meets BMW Longlife-01. We currently do not offer any motor oils...

    Fram TG8A 5k Miles Cut Open

    Looks like a tear at the bottom of the wide pleat in the first photo. A closer inspection might be warranted there.

    Old cars are less safe

    ABS is the biggest difference between new and old cars. If you have someone in a new Hyundai stand on the brakes at 55 MPH in front of your mid-year ('63-'67) Corvette, you might have a problem.

    Oil recommendation for 2008 BMW M3 V8 S65

    The M1 0W-40 doesn't meet BMW LL-01 anymore in the US. Maybe its different up north. I'd stay with the Castrol 10W-60 unless you see some operating issues in the winter. Then, sliding back to Castrol 0W-40 would be a good solution.
