    High Mileage Recommendation

    Now into the 1500 Mile "wash", and getting 27 MPG if I don't "zoom zoom zoom". Still pretty impressive.

    Prelim report on AUTO-Rx TX

    Scooby Quick question, has it turned warm out your way? Could the running of AC done anything to gas mileage ? I know mine takes a hit when I run hard with AC on in warm WX.

    AutoRX Mileage boost

    digitaldrifter, I was getting ~330 Miles to a tank if I really pushed close to empty. Not sure what I will get with the slight boost in mileage. My problem on getting too low is the lack of gas stations on part of my commute. Long way from Palmdale to Edwards, and not a whole heck of alot...

    Anyone try Wallyworld ST 15W-40 oil?

    Anyone know how to read the codes stamped on bottom of bottles of oil? I just had my car changed over to Wally Worlds 10 w 40 as the start of going for a AutoRX treatment. While waiting I looked at some of the bottles on the shelf. Stamped on the bottom looked like the same codes as Penz 10W...

    Hot WX Oil ??

    "It is a Honda with 130K miles and I am assuming it runs fine" Well...it actually uses/looses some oil, maybe 1 Qt over 2 to 3 K miles. I think it's a rear seal, hence the Auto RX experiment. Also my driving style is a bit hard, 80+ in Hot WX <img border="0" alt="[HAIL 2 U!]" title=""...
