    While your in there changing fluids, you should go ahead and change your windshield washer fluid to synthetic too. You can increase your drain interval 2x

    How much did it cost you to change out the front and rear diffs with that? What did you put in the tranny?

    Did you just say you gained 5 MPG (approx 25%) from switching to synthetic oil?

    You must like LOTS of gravy with your fries????

    It cost allot for my duramax, around 300 dollars. My tacoma is getting done for drivability and fuel miles. You will notice a difference in the ride. Royal purple is amazing.
