      PUP isn't a whole lot different than the old Pennzoil Ultra and Shell has been using GTL base stocks since 2013. The older Penzoil Ultra actually seemed to hold its viscosity a little better than the...

      Oil change Interval

      Why in the world would you run such a thin GF5 oil in a modified VW? Stock WRX's shear this oil to a 20 weight in under 3k miles and I expect your application to give it a good thrashing as well. Did...

      Really? Please provide some evidence of this. Or are you simply saying that regular GF5/Resource Conserving Mobil1 5W-30 (as well as any GF5 xW-30) doesn't handle fuel dilution very well?

      :confused:

      Schaffer's themselves says a blend of Group IV and Group III. No esters in the Full Synthetic 9000.

      I would argue that ester base stocks are the best that you can get. But don't take my word for it. Take it from someone that works with esters:...

      There's really no such thing as a crap base stock. Perhaps a crap finished product. Are the Group II's used in Schaeffer Supreme 7000 crap? Hardly.

      Who cares? Base stocks do not tell you anything about the performance of oil. It is more about the overall lubricant package and whether or not an oil meets the required specs.

      Doesn't look like my dealer has moved very many (if any) A3's either. IIRC, total number of A3's was about the same when they first arrived. Unless they sold a bunch and already got a bunch in again....

      If you don't replace the oil drain plug with a permanant solution, Audi oil change kits from some aftermarket vendors come with a new plug.

      I occasionally run 300V in my Forester turbo, but not sure I would consider any race oil as being "better" than an oil that meets ACEA A3/B3, VW502/505, Porsche A40, MB229.3/5, and BMW LL01. Yes,...
