    Nothing exciting to report other than an annual oil change w/ filter and replaced the cabin filters. Detailed the under hood while waiting for the oil drippings to stop. Found my source of the missing anti-freeze leak, Lower hose O Ring to rad. The PO had a shop replaced the Rad and WP just before purchase. So that means a twister or split O ring. Off the find the posting on the O ring part number. Puts out one drop per 5 min under pressure. Almost the same rate of loss as one of those cheap porous aluminum Thermostat housings.
    Mileage on oil 5K mostly short drives followed by a few Highway buzzes. Slight Mayo tint on the oil filler cap as she has been sitting under a cover for the last few weeks nicely detailed.

    Update: Still sitting under it cover waiting out a heavy rain to wash off all the salt brine on the streets around here. They put so much down that every spring, creek, and puddle will be a death trap for any living thing or potential rusting metal part. Forget about salamanders and little peeping toads this spring. No need to "kill, bury, and shut up" around here there will be no survivors!

    Racked up another 2K in miles without any issues. Been running up and down the interstates with a heavy foot. at 75-80 MPH she returns 26.5-27.3 MPG. Highway mile muncher for sure.

    always look forward to a StephenVA post !!

    When we traveled the fam in Frau Christine, I'd be slightly disappointed getting 26/27...which you would get at those speeds. Push it faster and the mileage will get better....(90+ = 30++)
    "two wrongs don't make a right...only three lefts do...."
    '79 Euro 635csi - gone and regretting it...
    '89 gsxr-750 - former traffic knife
    '97 528i sedan - holding on strong...
    '03 Euro 525it - something about a famous dolphin.....

    '06 Mercury Grand Marquis (don't ask....it gets the job done....)

    More Mileage today:
    Ran down to the NC/VA border this am and back. 193 miles one way 2.5 hrs travel time, average speed 77.2 MPH, 28.7MPG weather cool (39-45 degrees). New speed record! Only hit 105 once, promise officer.
    Interesting note: Speedo shows 85, computer shows 79, GPS matches computer. I know there is a setting somewhere to make the speedo show real speed but where?
    Round trip with no traffic 392 miles 27.4 MPG. (yes, I did not take the by-pass around Richmond, VA on the way back so it was shorter home.)

    Off to wash the wagon again this week...Damn pollen.
