Citgo Supergard 5w-30 (older non-semisyn)
3600 miles on oil
7 months in crankcase
Had the harmonic balancer separate in January and thought I would check to make sure the bearings are ok. I also am curious how the citgo does. It is a cheap oil and I don't see many analysis of it on this site. Looks pretty good to me for the $. I got this stuff on sale 2 years ago for $0.70/qt. I am out and onto the semi syn now - $2.59/qt.

Very nice results. Would have done 5-6k with ease, but I understand wanting to check a mechanical problem. Not many here like Citgo, but I've seen some really good results with it.
Looks good. Close to being out of grade but good for the normal short runs.

Dislike Citgo because of some clown that rules their homeland? Then dislike Mobil because of the clown captain of their supertanker.

One is history. The other will be history before we know it.

Please laugh, no offense intended to anyone.
Come to think of it...

The clown associated with Citgo may still be getting rich, but isn't really hurting us.

The Mobil clown did extensive damage to our homeland.

Sorry, seriously off topic.
