    Oil rec to quiet high mileage Honda

    Well, I picked up a jug of 5w-30 Magnatec. Never used it. Always up for trying something new.

    To the OP, Are you at GVSU by chance? I ask because I am a Laker myself! As perilous as it may be walking along campus drive, it is likely even more dangerous being on the road in that nasty winter weather! Unlike those posts that always get hit, you can move! Don't you live near a bus route...

    M1 0w-30 in engine w/ 195k?

    Hey BITOGers I am thinking of trying out M1 0w30 in my 93 dodge minivan, just because I've always wanted to try it and to see what it does for my mileage, if anything. The car has has 195k mi on it. It currently has M1 5w30 in it, which has been in there for 7.5k mi, and I think is due for an...
