Towed a 5x8, 2000 lb van trailer from TX to GA, peak amb temperature hit 105 along the way. I am guessing the tow duty beat down the viscosity? Blackstone did not flag it, but I am really not sure about that Silicon. I will check the duct clamps, etc.

Regarding the silicon, did you perhaps use an air filter with a hard plastic rather than soft rubbery border?

I went from an OEM looking cotton fiber style Purolator (Chinese made) to a Fram looking, single layer, rigid frame, but <b>with</b> foam gasket Purolator (Chinese made). I had thought the new one would seal better but I guess I am wrong about that.

Beautiful results. Another exceptional report from Pennzoil Platinum. This oil always surprises me with the results. This oil could have been ran a lot longer, btw.

PP seems to be getting more and more Ca with each reformulation. All oils were PP except for the first one which was M1EP.
