    Interesting lunch hour

    There is also a lawsuit regarding some engines from Subaru that areally burning oil. I'd research and monitor the vehicle to make sure it's not something more than a potential fill mistake that one time.

    I didn't do anything about the clip, it closed the lid (it's loose) but the clip is actually part of the box in there..so replacing it would be a monumental effort. I went outside and removed the wiper cowl and really couldn't find an entry way, but I know it has to be there. I'll try again...
