Doctrinal differences are important to the Lutherans because at the root of every false doctrine is the devil, seeking to destroy the Gospel.

The Best Oil Ever!

This is the oil that I use on our 1997 Toyota Tacoma and 1992 Toyota Celica. It is Castrol Syntec.

From their website:

Key Benefits
  • SYNTEC provides superior protection against deposits. Corrosive particles such as acid, soot and oxidized fuel fragments can cause costly damage to critical engine parts.
  • SYNTEC contains a Powerful Additive Package that neutralizes corrosive particles, preventing them from grouping together and forming sludge.
  • Neutralizes acids in your engine that can cause rust and corrosion on vital engine parts such as cylinders, bearings and hydraulic valve lifters.
  • SYNTEC meets the world's toughest gasoline engine protection requirements.
  • SYNTEC provides Stability & Endurance under extreme conditions (heat, load, speed) that can cause conventional oils to break down.
  • SYNTEC delivers the ultimate performance under high-temperature conditions: unsurpassed protection against volatility burn-off and viscosity increase.
  • SYNTEC can be used with confidence in every gasoline engine passenger car, new or old, regardless of oil previously used.
  • SYNTEC is fully compatible with all conventional and synthetic oils.
  • SYNTEC offers a level of protection that Outperforms All Leading Conventional Oils, passing severe industry torture tests.

Everything else is just motor oil.

NOTE: Only synthetics are used in aircraft turbine engine oil.

  • How often do you have to change your oil using this stuff? And how much does it cost per quart? Thanks.

  • Every 5-6K miles. It's not cheap. Expect to pay 1.5 to 2 times more than regular oil per quart. If you can find find it in 5qt containers that's your best value. In a new vehicle I wouldn't bother unless you want to spend moolah.

    I started using it when our vehicles busted 100K miles.
