    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?

    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

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Which oil next? Mazda skyactiv 2.5

    "19 cx5 awd with 2.5L skyactiv-G and cylinder deactivation. About 3-3.5k miles per month with about 80% of that being pretty mellow rural & freeway driving. Here's what I've run so far: 0-2k miles - factory fill 2k-5k miles - Mazda 0w20 syn (not high moly) - car ran great, good mpg 5k-10k...

    Gen 2 ctsv...best oil opinion

    Car is a ‘14 cts-v wagon with 30k miles. Don't get to drive it much bc of work, but when I do it gets run pretty hard...no track as of yet, just canyon carving and the occasional road rally. To give an idea, got a worst tank of 7 mpg running around the hills by Lake Berryessa. I've been...

    Does Edge 0w20 contain moly? Any recent voa’s?

    Went with the Mazda high moly oil for our first change (‘19 cx5 awd touring) at 2500 miles, and changed again at 5k with Zepro moly 0w20 last weekend. Picked up a couple 5qt jugs of the Castrol Edge black bottle 0w20 on prime day for the next couple changes, but haven't been able to find a...

    ‘19 cx5 skyactive 2.5L with cylinder deactivation - ideal oil?

    Picked up a ‘19 cx5 touring awd for my lady (and as our family car) a few weeks ago, and want to find the "best" oil for this application. Mazda only specs an api-SN 0w20 as suitable. Factory fill was changed with Mazda 0w20 synthetic with moly at about 2400 miles (to get break in metals out)...
