    Its back. Honda 08200-9008 DW1 Automatic Transmission Fluid ATF -1 Quart 6pack $30<

    They used to let us keep 1 quart. I think I kept like 4 quarts like that. But I recently had an order where they asked me to send it back before they could issue me a refund. So, they might insist you send it back before you can get your refund.

    How far over the MAX oil fill mark...

    If it is barely above the maximum line, I will not worry about it. Besides, I am sure you do burn some oil before your next oil change, so it will drop to the normal level after a few thousand miles. Just keep on driving.

    Change my oil Before or After road trip?

    My first oil change on this car was done at exactly 12,034. Here is the UOA from Blackstone. This oil did not see a long road trip of 7,500 miles. So, it had more city miles than highway miles. Since I could do 12,000 miles, that is why I was thinking of doing 12,000 miles again, especially as...

    Change my oil Before or After road trip?

    When I return home from this trip, I will change the oil no matter if I change it before I leave for the trip or not.

    But what do you consider overinflated? I personally do not like to put too much air in my tires. But to be very specific, the current tires on my car now has maximum psi on the sidewall as 51psi. So, I am sure that means the manufacturer is saying if that tire is filled up to 51psi "cold",it is...

    Wayne Gerdes' advice on psi for serious hypermiling; "MAX sidewall is what I would recommend for most as it is well within the safety limits of your car and tire and allows better Fuel Economy than the pressure listed in the driver’s side door." I don't know what you guys think about this.

    I guess driving in the city where highest posted speed may be 45mph is different from when you get on the freeway with posted speeds of 65mph or 70mph. I am guessing maintaining both speed limits would yield higher mpg in the city than on the highway.
