I feel your pain. I didn't have the original spark plug wrench in my tool kit either. Heck, I hardly had anything in it, even back in 2007 when I bought it right off the showroom floor! :mad:

I have my Aero 750 with Progressive and have kept it that way since it was new in 2007. Every now and then I look at GEICO, State Farm, Allstate, etc... and double check the going rates.

That's great about Rotella... I will be needing an oil change in a few hundred miles or so. I'll pick up a gallon jug of T6 at Walmart along with a Purolator filter, probably this weekend.
