oils, syn and extended drain cycle



Get on i8hmud as some of the guys (petrol not diesel) have done some oil
analysis and tried different types and extended periods. Will give u some
info on whats involved. May wanna get yours tested before u switch and then
if u can do some testing after that it will indicate the replace cycle.

if my bearings fail now because it aint cheap! I've only done about
12,000 miles on non-Jap oil so I'm hoping mine are still in good condition.
