    Battery discharged to 10.8v. Ok?

    With LA batteries you never know. I’d lean toward not worrying about it, though.

    Have any of you refinanced your mortgage lately?

    We were only three years into our mortgage and we’re opting for another 30. When I calculated the time to recoup our closing costs I compared to the original cost of the first loan, not how much I owe now, which is $15k less. Why? Obviously my refi payment would be lower due to less owed on the...

    Maybe I’m just sensitive. I work in a majority-male shipyard. I see old men stop and turn their decrepit bodies a full 180 when ANY woman walks by just to ogle them. It’s disgusting.

    Have any of you refinanced your mortgage lately?

    I‘m currently working on a refi through NFCU, who is also my current lender. 3.25 —> 2.50 VA However, I‘ll have to pay half a point and 1% origination fee on $300k. With additional closing costs it’ll take me 7 or so years to recoup. I plan to stay in the house forever.

    Best method for using Redline SI-1

    Not likely, which is why any method of use won’t matter.

    Non-detergent oil in small engines

    I‘m not knocking it. I’m a fan of brining existing, relevant threads back to life. I was just impressed at how old the thread was! Back on topic. I’ve looked for ND oil at gas stations and such and never see it. That’s a good thing.

    It‘ll be hard to tell, with her rear-view mirror so far away.;) Seriously, what about this car screams feminine to you guys? :unsure:

    Subaru Outback Wilderness

    I rarely hear of CVT issues and when I do, it’s usually a solenoid issue, not a CVT failure. I love the CVT in my FXT. I actually came from an STI and was expecting to hate it. It’s pretty impressive. If you haven’t driven a modern Subie with an HTCVT then, respectfully, you’re simply biased...

    Two fluids, each a different color and designator. Real tough to figure out... 4-cyl non-turbo: fluid 1 All others: fluid 2

    Probably not. It may comes solely with the FA24DIT engine and HTCVT

    Upper Cylinder Lubricants?

    As a test I bought two cases of Amsoil‘s UCL to use off and on. I‘m 3/4 through case 1 and don’t have an concrete results to share. All appears equal, whether there’s UCL or not.

    I see her as another member. What‘s the point of calling out her looks? If one of you said I was cute I’d feel EXTREMELY uncomfortable.
