    "Toyota recalls more than 565,000 vehicles over faulty parts"

    It appears that the thread is turning into, "What car company has the best products." I find that strange, because we all know who has a better product. Don't we.

    DT 2000 and UCL mix

    I posted the question on the first tank with the mix. I held off posting the change until I had a few miles on fuel blend. I now have over 1K miles on the truck using this blend. At this point, the MPG increase still holds.

    Lucas UCL : What makes this product unique?

    Think of it as having some possum fat in it, kind of like what Granny used to make soap with.

    Auto RX results.. Rated R. Graphic images.

    On my 89 Honda Prelude SI 2.0L w/130K miles, I did the two treatments with Auto-Rx. At each of the of the four OCI, more black carbon and sludge would fill the filter and come out with the oil. The carbon and sludge over a period of twenty years became dry and hard in the engine and oil pan...

    Oil is NOT thinner when cold.

    I will be the first to use an oil that is a 5W-5. That way no matter what I say about its flow or weight, I'll be right.

    Impressed with the upcoming Honda Fit

    I just might take a look at the Honda Fit when my 89 Honda Prelude 2.0L wears out. Those red dots in CR made me buy the Prelude in 1989. lol... I also hope that fuel hit $4.00/gal this year. Helps keep the roads less congested. Even at $4.00/gal, it's still cheap.

    FYI... CJ-4 Oil Information

    Does it appear that CJ-4 will be an additonal line of oil and it will not be grandfather for older diesels? If so, CI-4 oil may morph into..CI-4+++++++... lol.. It will be interesting to see what the engine makers say about it.

    Auto Rx on 91 civic, 188K

    I have a 89 Honda 2.0L with 142K miles... I did three cleanings and rinses on it and now use the 3oz maint dose. The oil still looks black as coal after 1K miles on each OCI. I am completely satisifed with the product. The car runs great and I have no oil useage between 4K miles OCI. I...

    Exxon 5W-20, 6400 miles, '02 Honda Si UOA #6

    <blockquote>quote:<hr /> Been running MC 5w20 in the Spring and Summer and switch over late fall to Mobil 1 0w20 for the Winter here in Iowa. <hr /></blockquote>Who would have thought that a 5W-20 oil would be used as a summer oil only?.. <img border="0" title="" alt="[Eek!]"...

    Topic: 2004 F250 6.0 PSD, 8700km(5400 miles) Esso XD-3 0w30/15w40 mix

    I am unhappy with the fuel% in the oil from the 6.0L. It appears to me that the 15W-40 oil does slightly better on the fuel%. Does the thicker oil at start up help this problem when the engine runs rich? Is the oil fully warmed up before you change it? TBN looks great. I would run it out...

    Factory Fill 5w20, 10k miles, 2005 Honda Civic

    I agree with Alan: If Lindermant is lucky, he might be able to get 400K miles out of that engine. If the wear stays as is, only about 350K.. lol... "Owner of a 89 Honda"
