Is that really efficient changing a roll of oil soaked TP and throwing it out every 1500 miles, adding more oil say 2qts every 1500 miles.....That is going to be way more expensive throughout the year and cause a ton more waste.....I am not "green" by any means but I am not for creating waste for no reason either.....

What you don't know is how many miles I put behind the wheel other vehicles that I don't own. I sure I told you before that I have been known to run a truck non stop (except for fuel) for 36 hours.

I don't "throw it away"; I burn it!!!! [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/tease[1].gif[/img] And by my math, I'm using 75% less oil than I was when I was changing it out along with the filter every 5000 miles. So don't give me the Liberal/green crap.........I'm conserving more now than I was before!!!! [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/Lecture.gif[/img]

I wasn't being liberal or green....you can ask anyone here about my feelings on that nonsense....I'm just saying one oil filter every 25K miles vs a roll of TP (that you really don't know the filtering capabilities of and the chances of TP floating through the system) every 1500 miles....that seems like a LOT of waste but to each his own.

Do I really need to post all my oil analysis to prove to you the worth of "toilet paper" as a filtering media???!!!! My oil analysis come back analytically clean. Your ignorance shows by your suggestion that TP is floating around threw the system. JFYI, the military uses these types of filters because they are readily available and for the excellence of their filtering!!! But I won't argue with you........because it's Lent.....and I gave up arguing on the internet with folks like you!!! [img]/forum/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/tease[1].gif[/img]

I guess it depends on the toilet paper. If it comes apart when I wipe with it, I wouldnt use it as a filter!

So lets keep it 'clean' guys, to each their own. Everybody can argue points but I would rather everyone explain them and then let the reader to decide whats best for them.

Now back to the question of Super Tech A+4. Mopar released their license for aftermarket production of A+4 about 3 years ago. Amsoil had their way around specific aricles of A+4 because of the base that they use that made it compatible to A+4, nobody else did. So untill Mopar released it, there was no other approved source.

Now that the aftermarket has it, it may say A+4 because of the add package makes it compatible but that DOES NOT MEAN that the base oil is superior. The add package components of A+4 is a specific blend of chemicals that are needed for the frictions used and the pressures involved in the trans. Its different than any other oil package, unique. But there are dozens on unique blends that are required for all different kinds of manufactures, some so critical that the use of any substitute will distroy a trans quickly. The costs of blending those fluids is what makes the price of the product. Superior components simply costs more. Inferior components costs less, and while carry the componets required for a specfic application, may simply not last as long.

Sometimes you do get what you pay for!

From what I have found, Supertech/Coastal may be one and the same, Warren Lube products.

I can't find mopar at Wal-Mart, so will spend the extra $15 and use Valvoline. IF my filter from Geno's garage ever gets here, talk about cra%$ turnaround.

What I would like to know is if it matters whether I use ATF+4 in my G-56 manual transmission in my '06. That's what the owner's manual calls for, so that's what I replaced it with. But since it's a manual trans. do I really need to use ATF+4? If not, what would be good (or suitable) enough to use instead?

Curiosity is driving these questions. I have no problems with using ATF+4, But it is good information to have.
