I'm crazy happy with Gliptone. It blows away my old favorite, Lexol. The conditioner is what makes it so good. You sure can't beat the price: $14 for cleaner and conditioner.

$470 to reseal the oil filter housing? I pray they're planning to do more than replace the O ring that comes with a new filter. Maybe tighten down that 13mm bolt a bit more?
