    I kinda like Sven. Yea he's a bit off-the-cuff sometimes but very smart knows his shit. I think your comment resembles watching a weekly tv show you don't really like then complaining to the world you hate it. Turn it off! You know, Members, Settings, People you Ignore works very well in this forum I might add. But calling him an idiot. Doesn't really apply.. :nopity:

    Your poor dog -- only gets an oil change once a year -- that means its not being ridden enough.
    I usually have to do 4 or 5 changes a year.

    I think you need to re read my post! I wasn't calling him an idiot because he doesn't know his shit. I was calling him an idiot because of the long drawn out post at answering a very simple question of, how much oil to use and type.
    I stand by my post, I too like Sven and trying to help out with answering questions but some of the post are just too drawn out, which is why I asked him to get to the point

    If you have the extra money, I would say Spectro is best for both motor and trans

    I haven't ran across a truly bad oil since Quaker State reformulated the shit goop they used to sell. That being said, some oils are a lot better than others, but nobody who changes their oil and filter within 2-3 times the recommended mileage will ever see the difference. As for the viscosity, that entirely depends on the clearances/tolerances of the parts build. The one true difference between oils is between off-road and emissions compliant stuff. Some of the anti wear additives such as zinc have been removed from the on-road stuff for emissions compliance.
