Re: After 2500 miles my oil still looks near new

3200 miles.
Definitely does not look "New" anymore (last 700 miles were mostly in-town) but not all that dirty either.

Yeah, I think the V8 and V6 fuel economy is pretty similar. I can get ~20 mpg highway if I stay around 60 mph. I am usually around 70 mph on the interstate.
Ironically I find myself driving current V8 Pathy more gently than the V6 Pathy I used to own, trying to lighten the mpgs.

Re: Squirrel nest inside my HVAC!

PS: I also left a Peppermint oil soaked rag under the hood of both my Nissan SUVs to help deter more of the same.

Re: Squirrel nest inside my HVAC!

I wonder how they got in.
I hope I dont have a hole in some ducts under the car now that I cant see.
To be safe I sprayed some peppermint oil thought he air intake to circulate thru all the ducts.

I understand it is a rodent repellant.

The drive was a bear but thats not important here. I noticed this very unpleasant smell but figured ...

Re: Any/Max Lift with Bilstein 4600 Shocks?

Return 800 mile trip got back to normal fuel economy. Low 17's mpg at 70-75mph. I guess the trip up was an anomaly at almost 18 mpg. Maybe there was a tailwind I wasn't aware of. But with 1600 miles of highway mileage, I don't think my fuel economy dropped at all with this moderate 1.5 inch lift. B...

Re: Anyone ever try these 6 Gallon round jugs in spare tire spot?

I got one of those 6-gallon containers, but the hole in the middle is too big for the spare tire carrier. I contacted the vendor and they told me I'm on my own to make a washer out of metal to make the spare tire carrier bigger. I've not been able to find anything sold online that would fit... :( t...
