    PQIA Issues An Alert!

    Scary thing it has several positive reviews on eBay. Could they be legitimate? The reviews...not the oil

    Stickiest/best handling all terrain tire?

    Thanks guys...Not so concerned about wear as I am traction & steering response. Unfortunately the ko2's are out bc they only come in an 8-ply in my size, which makes them 10-15 lbs heavier than a standard tire, and don't need the extra load capacity. Once ran a similar weight 10-ply set on my...

    Stickiest/best handling all terrain tire?

    Application is my old 2008 4.7L 6spd 4wd Dodge 1500 ranch truck with 375k miles. I drive it like a sports car (and at times a drift truck), and would like some stickier/more responsive tires. Problem is being a ranch truck, I still need to be able to get around the fields w/o getting stuck. Any...

    m1 TDT vs Rotella t6?

    Why all the love for Delo? I know it's good oil and we do use it at the ranch on our diesel trucks/tractors, but wouldn't a synthetic oil offer superior protection when stuff gets hot?

    m1 TDT vs Rotella t6?

    Truck only requires 15w40 but have been running t6 5w40 bc not quite comfortable with 15k oci's on a conventional oil, despite it being allowed by FCA. Didn't realize Rotella made a t6 15w40 or I'd happily run that. Low temps here are right at freezing or just below (high 20's F) on the coldest...

    m1 TDT vs Rotella t6?

    Been running T6 in my ‘16 Cummins Ram for 90k miles...seems to work just fine. Ready for another change and WM was out of t6, so picked up 3 jugs of TDT At $2 more per jug (24 vs 22) What are thoughts on 5w40 TDT these days? I recall it was highly regarded once, but haven't heard much about...

    Skyactive-G likes Rotella GT 0w20

    I see your point and would tend to agree with you if it weren't my own observations. I guess my statements are based mostly on engine idle smoothness and volume. With the Zepro (on multiple occasions and today for the first time on RGT), I've exited the vehicle without turning off the engine...

    Skyactive-G likes Rotella GT 0w20

    20k miles in 6 months on our ‘19 cx5 non-turbo, and on to another oil. This time was Rotella GT 0w20 courtesy of the AZ clearance. Engine seems to really like this oil and idles butter-smooth, like it did on the Zepro 0w20 Moly. So far here's how I'd rank the oils tried in our Mazda (all 0w20...

    Low-ash synthetics in a ‘Murican v8?

    Along with plenty of RGT and QSUD 0w20 for the wife's cx-5, I was able to get some PP Euro LX 0w30, Pentosin Super Performance iii 5w30, and Pentosin High Performance ii 5w40 at the famous AZ clearance. It appears these euro oils are all low ash (MB 229.51) synthetics, and I've read many...

    Oil Recommendation for LS7 Z06 Street & Track Usage

    RL 5w30 in my cts-v wagon w/LSA now that it's off warranty, after a life of warranty-friendly PUP 5w30. It may be overkill for the job, but the car gets driven very hard though not often, and therefore doesn't see extended oci's (or frequent oil changes). It's completely anecdotal, but I have...

    Mazda 2.5L Skyactiv 0W-20?

    What year/model car? If an ‘18-up with cylinder deactivation, I'd be wary of straying from the recommended 20wt oil. The CD is activated by oil pressure, and not sure how jumping up to a 30wt oil could possibly affect that. If a non-CD engine then can likely disregard the above. In our ‘19...

    What circumstances would you run a boutique oil...

    If job allowed me to DD my ctsv wagon, I'd run redline in it. Since DD is a truck, the wagon still gets redline for occasional/recreational use

    Redline oil = quicker revving?

    If I were commenting on this thread I would tend to agree with you guys...placebo effect. But here's my rationale... In all of my vehicles, I heel/toe every downshift just to keep mundane drives somewhat interesting. After picking up the car from the oil change to Redline, I was slightly...

    Redline oil = quicker revving?

    ‘14 ctsv wagon w/30k miles Since new have always run PUP 5w30, and just today switched to Redline 5w30. Engine feels quicker to rev on heel/toe downshifts than before. I don't notice any other subjective differences thus far (power, mpg or lack thereof, etc) but definitely feels like the...

    0W40 vs 10W40 for SBF stroker

    Valvoline modern engine...opinions?

    Valvoline ME is on clearance for $20/jug (5 qt) at my local AZ, but can't find any real info on this oil. Just see that it's priced similar to M1 AP normally, but doesn't have any extended drain claims. Thinking of stocking up our farm shop for the work trucks if it really is a superior oil to...

    Engine oil & CAFE program and MPG ratings

    I've tried all kinds of engine oils on my 2008 4.7 6spd Ram, trying to figure out what oil was best (spec is 5w20 but I expected it needed thicker oil). Truck has had the ever-loving crap beat out of it for 375k miles (currently parked bc fatigue crack in front spindle). Constant high RPM's...
