    Do I want Torque Pro, what about an OBD2 scanner?

    Autel 200 I hear is quite good. Torque Pro is a good data reader but that's about it. No two way coms.

    Windshield Wiper Fluid

    They use to use methanol in the regular -20F blue stuff. Might be on the outs though with all the green push and replaced with isopropyl? But that too is not much good when it's really cold as the methanol evaporates too fast with wind. They add the propylene glycol to the super cold stuff I...

    Amazon, again.

    Here's something else. Ordered a lower radiator hose and wanted to get two. But said only one in stock so I ordered it. Go back the next day and same thing, only one in stock. They have it discounted priced at around 22% off and don't want you buying more than one at a time.

    Relocated A Chipmunk

    Chipmunks are bad news around here. They tunnel alongside the foundation and over time they remove the soil and depresses the area. We had them really bad and then had a huge flood. Drowned them all out for about three years. Then they came back but I have cats now. Hawks like them too.

    USB Chargers ?

    No they are not all the same. Look at the fine print on them and they will have a watt or amp rating at 5Vdc. And the cord you use will limit full power too if it's too small of wire (usually). My fast charge Motorola charger is 10W/2A @5vdc
