    Subaru Baxter Performance anti drain adapter

    Well, I have been wanting to buy one of these for a couple of years now, and I have been checking on and off for months, but couldn't justify the price. I have personally spoken to the guy that makes these a couple of times last year and he was super nice and answered all my questions. I just...

    Magnetic oil plugs and filter adapters

    I know some vehicles come with this stock, and some you can buy aftermarket. But what are your thoughts on magnetic oil drain plugs, or even the magnetic filter covers that attach to the side of your oil filters? Do you think they actually work? Their whole purpose is to catch any fine metal...

    Oil Extractors

    Has anyone else used an oil extractor? I recently purchased one for my lawnmowers, and man what a life saver. So clean, no mess, and makes it fun. No more having to tip your lawnmower over, or mess with drain plugs. It works great and for the $60 dollars you can't beat it.

    CBD oil - Does it really work?

    So about a year ago, CBD oil became a big hit. Apparently it has good medicinal properties. It comes in different MG doses and has different was of using it as well. But the THC (what gets you high) has been removed. Anyone else used it or would recommend it for sore muscles?

    Easy oil changes - Fumoto valve

    SO, I have been meaning to post this for a while, but on my very first oil change I decided to install a Fumoto valve on it. This little valve replaces your oil plug and has a compressed spring, plus a safety clip as well. When you go to change your oil, you remove the safety clip and press in...

    Does motor oil go bad just sitting?

    Me and me Dad have this discussion quite a bit. Can motor oil sitting in an engine when it's not needing a change harm the engine? Most oil changes recommend xxxxxx miles or every 6 month etc. But why do you need to change it say in the 6 months if you only have 1,000 miles on it? Does it...

    When you don't change your oil

    Apparently a Audi TT without an oil change at 84,000 miles without an oil change. Here is a Honda Civic at 200,000 with regular oil changes.

    Oil bust inevitable

    I've been reading more and more about a potential oil bust, especially right here in the Bakken. It's simple economics, the Bakken is very expensive to drill, costing $70-90 per barrel, doesn't leave much room when a barrel of oil is going for right below $82 right now. Some forecasters are...

    Changed lawnmower oil

    I don't know why I was putting this off for so long. It was so easy to do. Picked up some sae 30 weighter, tipped the lawnmower over poured out the oil,then added the new. (yes the book recommends just tipping it over to change) I am use to an oil plug. But it did work and made it easy. Ran a...

    In the event that you didn't already believe in Peak Oil

    http://www.usatoday.com/story/money/business/2014/06/28/the-world-was-533-years-of-oil-left/11528999/ The world has 53.3 years of oil left What a weird article. Supports a claim by publishing it. Walks back its support at the end.

    Finally a great oil filter idea!

    So I have been looking at another new vehicle lately and when I saw screen shots of the engine bay of the new Subaru Crosstrek I was intrigued. So I Googled it and sure enough that is the oil filter right next to the oil fill. The drain plug is still on the bottom. But no more mess with the...

    One step oil and filter change

    We were talking about this yesterday. Why not make a long cylindrical tube that holds both the perfect amount of oil and has the filter built in? Basically you would just need to unscrew the oil one and screw on the new. No more mess no more wondering if you had the right amount of fluid in the...

    Oil changes

    Well I am very proud of myself. Changed my own oil in the new vehicle tonight. Not my favorite thing to do though. I still kinda smell like oil. Picked myself up a torque wrench in town today. I use to change my own oil but it had probably been about 8 years since I have. You just can't trust...

    Rem oil for gun cleaning

    For you gun owners out there make sure that you pick some of this up and rub down your metal parts with it. On the outside. I just used an old T-shirt to apply it with. It will keep your metal in good shape and keep it from getting rust spots on it etc. It's can be found just about anywhere and...

    The oil spill dilemma

    So by now we all know how bad the BP oil spill is and how they cannot stop it. How long do you think it will last? From the latest stuff I hear it's going to be awhile. I know BP contributed to Obama quite a bit of money. I do find it funny that this happened a week after Obama was going to sign...

    Self generating oil wells

    I see alot of oil wells around here pumping. What you always see on them is usually an exhaust pipe that is letting the gases from the Earth up. Sometimes you will even see a flame on these burning the gas off. So what not make that pipe run back over next to the pump and instead of letting the...
