My customers have been asking for more information on synthetic oil and how it affects their engine. Basically the inside of your engine gets really hot because of friction from the moving parts and from burning fuel. Oil lubricates the moving parts to keep them from getting too hot.
The problem comes when oil turns to sludge, which is kind of a thick jelly. Sludge clogs up little passages so that the oil can’t protect parts of the engine. So the two best ways for auto owners to prevent sludge build-up is to always change their oil on schedule; and to use synthetic oil.
I can tell you from 1st hand experience that Alvie's Transmission Service Unlimited is operated by a very helpful and honest guy. As you can tell by looking at it, he takes pride in his shop and this goes for workmanship as well. My son and I drive from Orlando, Florida anytime that we need transmission work done. - Barbara YP Review

I had my Mustang trans rebuilt at Alvie's last year and I recommend him to everyone I talk to. His shop is the cleanest trans shop in town and he prides himself on customer service. Alvie knows his stuff and is honest and easy to understand. I work in the automotive industry and have seen ALL the shops in town, and Alvie is where I take my vehicle,,, and I live in St Augustine... - bozac52 Review YP

This is a common scene played out all around America: You pull off the highway and find yourself with a choice of gas stations. While you're almost guaranteed to see at least one nationally recognized brand waiting by the off-ramp, there might also be Brand X, selling gas for maybe 10 or 20 cents per gallon less.
Just like that, you’re on the horns of a dilemma. Saving money is fun―but you're left to wonder whether opting for the cheaper gas will harm your engine. Does cheaper gas equate to substandard fuel? Here, we debunk the myths surrounding cheaper fuel.
