290000 Lifes Good

Hit 290000 miles today. Getting 32 MPG. Life is good.

Did an oil change, WOW is it getting easier. 2 Gal of Rotella T Synt ($24 a Gal) and a $7 Oil filter. ($55 Oil Change) and less than 1/2 hour. 13mm socket for the drain plug and 2 nuts on the Oil Filter Canister.

(For the record I didn't use the full 2 gal to hit the full mark) The car (see signature) isn't burning any noticeable amount of engine (lubricating) oil.

Looking forward to 300K. Hmmm. Lets see.. Oil, Trany, Radiator, 2 tires, Hmmm what else????

Bob
