Any BITOG minded will want to pick their own oil. I ditto the gift certificate. BUT, if you doing this in the spirit of giving, for someone who is happy if Iffy Lube replaces their drainplug, get them something better than they get themselves. Ant of the SynBlends would be nice, and shouldn't leak like a full syn might if there is some age on the vehicle..

How about Clean 7500 for the noob so they can get used to extending ocis a bit with some confidence. HM is always a good idea if it's appropriate. Price no object, Mobil 1 EP because people recognize the brand, doubt they will run it out and it would be a waste if they dump it early. Not every engine is ready for long oci on good synth anyway. GTX HM 5w-30 would be the best overall gift. Bright green bottle is very seasonal.

I would want something hardly talked about here. So that means I want a mystery oil that's been given it's very few rave reviews. Please put some wrapping paper & a bow around a 12-pk box of Synergy 5w-30 for me. Thank You in advance!
