    Lightbulb Consider this about engine life!

    Years ago metalergy and oils where far from what they are today, another important fact is trucks in the 50's-60's were turning over 3,000 RPM at highway speeds. The trucks of today turn under 2,000 RPM, that combined with the above greatly extends the life of newer engines.
