Hi Scotty,

Love your videos and learned a lot. However I have a few questions:

1) I replaced the motor a few months ago. It only had 50,000 miles on it and doesn't burn oil often. Do you have any recommendations on how to keep this motor in tact.

2) I use full synthetic oil from Mobile 1 and also use the more better quality oil filters. However would the Annual protection from Mobile 1 be a better fit for my vehicle or should I just stay with the full synthetic?

3) I drive my car between 150-400 miles a day working. Any recommendations for routine maintainence or things to keep an eye on? Like what to check, change, look out for, etc.

4) For years I have been using premium gas. I have a ton of miles on this car. Does the higher octane gas help or hurt engines at high mileage?

What car do you own JD1984? That way I can give you the maintenance intervals and how often you should change your oil.

change the oil every 5 thousand miles to make it last. Stay with full syn oil, that's fine. If the engine was not made for high test gas, use regular, you're wasting your money if engine is not high compression.
