    Shepherd's Pie

    Never thought of making it in a cast iron... usually use loaf pans. Looks scumptious!

    Flew South, now driving a clunker home

    Best of luck with it! Not a while lot on the inside to break, so that's a plus!

    Where Do You Store Your Oil?

    In a non-climate-controlled storage room attached to the carport.

    Low windshield washer fluid light stuck on

    Is there a separate reservoir for the rear window sprayer? Maybe that one is empty and keeping the light on.

    <a href="http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3179274/crosseyedwx#Post3179274" target="_blank">Oil stash</a> hasn't changed much. Just 4.5 qts down of PP 5W20 and an M1 <a href="http://www.bobistheoilguy.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/3318873#Post3318873"...

    Pretty solid score, methinks.

    Thanks for all the kind words. It's not such a bad problem to have. <img src="/forums/graemlins/laugh.gif" alt="laugh" title="laugh" height="15" width="15" /> I nearly forgot about this until I was in the laundry room looking at the shelf upon which they sit. I have to add to this oil score...

    100,000 mile Kia. Change what I'm doing?

    It ain't broke, don't fix it! What you are / she is doing is working just fine.

    Dash Cams anyone here uses them ??

    As of late, I have been using my Galaxy S3 with a rotating dash mount and an app called Daily Roads Voyager. It records speed, lat/lon, and date/time and retains video either in set chunks of time or by specified g-force using the phone's onboard gyros. Not ideal for documenting anything in a...

    Should I Build A PC?

    And if you choose to go this route, you can use <a href="http://www.decrap.org/" target="_blank">DeCrap my Computer</a> to clean all the bloatware they put on there to justify the price. Good luck!

    Should I Build A PC?

    For a prebuilt, something like <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Dell-Inspiron-i3647-1524BK-Desktop-Windows/dp/B00HWML45Y/" target="_blank">this</a> (few bucks cheaper at <a href="http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16883156017" target="_blank">Newegg</a>) is the ticket. It...

    Should I Build A PC?

    In the haste to add the power supply and re-add the CPU while tinkering, I put the wrong vendor for the CPU. It can be had for a penny more at Newegg, so everything but the power supply can be had at Newegg. If you can stomach a $20 MIR, a $20 Corsair PSU can't be beat.

    Should I Build A PC?

    Here's an AMD version I threw together pretty quick and should last you a while. You have another slot to upgrade RAM if necessary and left off the SSD to get you right at budget. You can of course get a small SSD like Nick listed for the OS, which will definitely make Windows zippier. Good...

    So do i go by the tire pressure label on my door?

    I say with a heavier car, you are better off with more than 32 psi. In my experience, heavy front wheel drive cars chew through outer tread at placard psi and I have always run them several psi higher. I say 36-38 at least.

    G-Oil 5W30, 9003 mi, 2005 KIA Spectra

    I know G-Oil has a few "generations" of formulations, so for clarity, the G-Oil I used was in this jug... <img src="http://h2savecom.files.wordpress.com/2012/07/screen-shot-2012-07-12-at-4-22-56-pm.png" alt="" /> Other notes: Car has K&N air filter which has been replaced with a Fram air...

    Pretty solid score, methinks.

    Yeah, wow Memphis, that score of Ultra and the score above posted by Nick were WAAAAY better than mine. I guess I was just getting a little impatient, and this manager looked to be pretty stingy. Considering he turned down an offer before (not sure what it was exactly), I didn't want to push my...
