Do you think it is bad to floor it every once in a while with high mileage?

I typically fill up at the same couple gas stations that are all off of 50 or 55 mph roads, so immediately after filling up I run through the first 2 or 3 gears at redline...done it with every vehicle I've owned and never had any issues related to engine rpm...

So regarding your definition its harder on the engine to redline than to full throttle?

IMO - If your ride doesn't like being 'pinned to the mat' it'll tell you. Turn the music off, roll the windows up and listen... I like my fingertips lightly on the shifter for additional 'feel.' It'll be pretty evident how happy she is.

Easier than reading than my wife... she's always 'FINE' !?!

Downshift and run once a day! Its good for the soul!
