    What's your opinion on Pentosin vs Redline?

    I like the Redline better. Mine is high mileage and just seems to behave better. I know.... Vague.

    All good. I asked for your opinion, not a research paper. I was gonna go with Pentosin when I did my transmission/diff fluids next at 200k or so.. but maybe not, now.

    Thanks Dane!
