        No disrespect intended, of course,
but EVERYONE has a pet oil to hate, it seems.  I've heard horror stories
about Castrol, Kendall, Pennzoil, Mobil 1 (mostly in old engines) and
now Havoline.
        Personally, I've had good luck with it, but then, I tend to change the
oil at 3-4k intervals.  And not mix oils.  Put 140k on an '84 Stanza-
when I took the valve cover off, it was always clean.

But, I think, that's what YMMV really means!
