apples to oranges
Well, for sure you are doing 99.9999% highway driving, and I am not.. But, we're both getting good life out of our engines, so we both must be at least doing okay with our maintenance.. Oil base being responsible for color?? I don't know anything about that, so I will certainly back out of that debate.. I will stick to my method, you stick to yours, in 50 years we will both be in the ground (probably), so this won't matter... I think we both agree that the original poster is going a little overboard, but that'* just both of our 2 cents worth!! (I'm guessing Willwren might stop us soon, I think we took over this thread!)

Husband, father of two daughters, deer hunter and lover of most things GM, (although I do like my Chrysler minivan) - but nothing comes before my girls..
I'd much rather go home after work and be with my family than do anything else..
