A few answers on NEO. Neo is an excellent oil in my opinion. I have used many oils to compare to and Neo stands out in a few areas. NEO was put in my test car that had seals seeping and they no longer seep is this due to a Group 5 basestock I believe so. Also this test car has 217,000 miles and gets excellent gas mileage also my opinion.
1985 PONTIAC Parisenne 305 V-8 217,000 miles and gets 19.8 MPG.
Midwest temps are 10 degrees to 102 degrees the oil 10/30 is the oil I use all year long with no problems. The ratio for driving is 60/40 highway/city.
Also questions on procedures for NEO they recommend a filter change every 3-5 thousand miles depending on driving conditions. The filter brands recommended are OEM (AC,MOTORCRAFT) or WIX oil filters. So a cost analysis is 7 quarts of oil for the year on my test car and 4 oil filters for the year. $70 for oil and $20 for filters (WIX).
Thanks for your time.
