    I'm pretty sure that's the most expensive oil change I've ever done.

    Well at least it wasn't as costly as Redline........

    Im at 16 quarts an oil change right now. I normally run lucas or redline.. Either way once or twice a year is cheaper than an engine. Dan

    at SEMA some years back I had a great conversation at lunch with a Motul rep/engineer. I wish I had a tape recorder or just a better memory. I learned a lot that day about oil and the process of synthetics and the esters used and why some are better than others.

    that's the thought.... the v-twin and the 10/40 you use still have the "good stuff" in them. For an extra $1.50-$2.00 a qrt I think it's well worth it.
    both oils are designed to take a serious beating .....

    Default Ouch!

    WTF??? That's flipp'n motorcycle oil. You can't do that!!

    Look at this way Sleeper. I was changing it 2 times a year and it was Torco SR5. Going to M1 was like getting a pay raise.
    Keep your eyes peeled because it goes on sale every so often and you can grab it for your next oil change. Don't be surprised if you oil pressure is slightly improved and hangs in there better.

    i wonder if they have a store at the Grand Canyon ..... or Sedona


    I'll start keeping an eye out for it but I don't really much look at the fliers in the news papers anymore.

    I just happened to be in the store checking on something else, and saw it.


    I was in there checking on the "rumor" that Valvoline had dropped the API certification of the VR1 and was now only "rated". Sure enough its true. The 20/50 now carries a SG "rating" and is no longer SN/SM certified. That puts in the same position as REAL racing oils. Wonder how long it will be allowed to be sold in the retail stores? Because they all stopped carrying Lucas, and Royal Purple "racing" and non certified automotive oils some time ago.

    Here goes my ignorance again but is it worth while throwing a zinc break-in-additive in with every oil change? Im still in my break in stage so I havent thought ahead to the next oil change yet. My original thought was VR-1 before I threw the rod on the last motor.

    I just find it interesting that you can't find another AUTOMOTIVE oil in the big box stores that don't carry a API donut seal. I have a bottle dated 2011 and it has the seal.

    Not sure about the humor in that.
