RE: dino oil vs synthetic mpg

To me the point is what we are doing is working for us. I never had any gas engine go bad using good oils. I don't smoke or drink or chase the ladies so I have tons of money for oil. Kinda making a joke. I usually change once a year at under 7000 miles. Overkill. chevman

RE: dino oil vs synthetic mpg

our 05 chev had 112020 miles on the Rotella synthetic and tested using blackstone. Result was go 2K more miles. Not going to happen as I had wife health issues and let the duramax go for that many miles to happen. Same report as Cummins shows. 97K miles now. chevman

RE: best in-bed combo toolbox/aux fuel tank?

Our truck is just for towing so adding a 55 gal inbed tank has been great for us. Only one tank filled at a time and almost always the inbed tank is used so if any bad fuel is pumped the other tank can be used even if I have to change the fuel filter. Never like to run a tank low and worry about running out. so my vote is having extra fuel is wonderful. Having enough truck helps. Cummins has enough truck but a large load to carry and tow. His choice as well as ours. All good. chevman

RE: Progressive Insurance questions

I am not positive but I believe Larry is referring to Progressives giving to known progressive causes. I for one will not use progressive for this reason. Just as i don’t use AARP because they give to progressive causes as well. We have State Farm for over 20 years and are quite pleased with the service we have had from them. We are members of AMAC which is AARP for conservatives. For many of us the political position of Progressive and AARP aren’t worth the discounts. George Soros.. chevman

My guess the reason for towables and really not a guess is the member ship for FMCA is fading and to keep their benefits new blood is needed. chevman

RE: Jacking and tire replacement

I tried to raise one wheel using a home made ramp but the only thing that happened was that wheel was jammed up high and the wheel I wanted to work on was still sitting on the concrete. chevman

RE: gel coat cleaner/wax????

nothing easy for waxing a large rv and wax doesn't last so poli glow has been the very best product I have ever used plus it makes the rv look awesome. Re do each summer but not that hard to do. chevman

RE: Transmission Service?

Because the truck is in our name on the title I feel I am the boss so I changed to synthetic trannie fluid at 12 K miles and have drained the torque converter twice myself. Changed the rear diff 9 times my self and have changed the coolant 2 times and the Allison spin on filter each summer and the brakes have been flushed 3 times plus the steering fluid 3 times. I never disagree how others care for their vehicle's. Also never run the tires to the max mileage or keep the batteries until the truck doesn't start. chevman

RE: Need Chevy/GMC Advice

Current Trucks: If you want to stay with a gas I would give a Super Duty with the 6.2 and 4:30 gears a hard look. The current GM 6.0 and transmission I'm not convinced you'll notice a big improvement. Future Trucks: Rumor has it that Ford will be rolling out a new 7.3 gas engine for the Super Duty line. GM is working on a larger displacement gas engine too, but I'm not a fan of the 2019 half ton styling but not sure how much of the looks will be included in the HD trucks. Fish is you are not going to buy a GM truck why would you care how it looks? My thinking is all 3 brands looks as good as the others just different. I feel this way about the others on this forum that what they have is the only way. However liking what your money buys is a good thing. chevman chevman

RE: 2019 GM trucks get smarter fuel-saving cylinder deactivation

what about the new ram 1500 engine? That thing is pure technology. Our 05 is so simple I like it more every time we drive. chevman

RE: G614 blow out on Friday

Wow, I've had a couple blowouts and neither looked like that one. That really looks like some kind of sidewall damage caused the blowout. Pretty weird looking. Replace them with Sailuns and forget about any more tire trouble. Are you saying Sailun tires can't have a road hazard puncture? sounds like that is what he said. Not true but would be great if so. chevman

RE: G614 blow out on Friday

Wow, I've had a couple blowouts and neither looked like that one. That really looks like some kind of sidewall damage caused the blowout. Pretty weird looking. Replace them with Sailuns and forget about any more tire trouble. Maybe the ridge of the grass rubbed the sidewall because it was flat. Take another look. Just a guess for me. chevman
