Re: Lets beat another dead horse
Just my own personal experience here, but I ran my '05 up to about 20K before switching to Golden Spectro. Nothing much really to report over the last 10K miles except it is just a tad quieter, it uses no oil whatsoever, and it never 'puffs' even if I put in on the side stand BEFORE I turn it off.
Gas mileage has stayed the same, right around 50 (measured) on the highway, and the oil still appeared to be very clean at the last oil change.
All in all it may have been exactly the same on straight dino!
The Golden Spectro costs a little more, but I can stretch oil change intervals out......so again, everything may be a wash, but I am going to stick with the Spectro.
