I am eagerly awaiting delivery of SF MTL-P. It will see use in my 5 speed Vibe transmission (Toyota tranny); just in time for all those winter runs to the hockey rinks around my province [Canada] . Hey with GC in the engine, MTL-P in the tranny and Nokian RSIs on the tires I may not want winter to end. [Big Grin]

I had to wear a coat for the second day in a row. That's enough winter for me. [Smile] With GC in your Toyota, summer or winter, rain or sunshine, not even a coffee break (yes, like Rusty Jones) it will serve you well.

Winter is the time of year When GC's advantage becomes clear "Cause here's one thing that won't be seen: That is the freezin' o' The Green

Pabs, You'll be pleased to know that when I went to pick up the Audi at what is probably the Springs top maintainer of high end cars (he drives a Talbot-Matra and a 500 hp Alfa Spyder), we got into a discussion on oil: alas, he is a Follower of the Amsoil Way...I mean he is hooked...I did get his interest up with GC, however....but I don't think he is ready to depart The Amsoil Way.

I like running 0w30 year round because it's one less thing to worry about in fall/spring. I change over from pink windshield washer fluid to blue in early October. Still a ways from winter but the bug season is over anyways. So that just leaves me with "when to change over to winter tires?" Usually I totally miss it and end up driving around on dry roads with winter tires for 3 weeks or slipping and sliding on all-seasons for a few days after the first snow storm. But this year I hit it perfect. The weatherman predicted 6" of snow for last Tuesday AM(and he was right) so I switched all my cars over Monday night. Bought my first set of Michelin X-Ice, they seem to work even better than the Arctic Alpins.

colder than that. Normal lows there in January around or below freezing I think. Not Minnesota by any means, but then again not Key West either.
