    Just got the oil change done on the taco. I'm mucho happier now. Light went solid the other day. Can't belive how quick 500 miles went.

    If you mean MPGs I do that mostly on trips. I will do it every few fill ups from time to time. Every gas stop I reset my mileage to keep an eye on it and know where it typically should be depending on driving.

    So do I. I'm averaging 13-14 mpg combined and, if I'm lucky, 14-15 highway.

    So my wife's car has some light scratches in the windshield from the prior owner. Does anybody know of a good product I can use to get rid or hopefully reduce these with? They aren't horrible. Hate to see a rock smash it from off the highway later lol.

    That highway OUCH, but your more built than my truck is. I get about 15-16 in the city and 20 on the highway. If I feather it 21 lol.
    Nah I don't get carried away, just monitor to keep an eye to see if it's not running as good as it could be. Keep only normal receipts for maintenance stuff really.

    What a difference going to the tower instead of satellite. Parts on order for the stuff to have WiFi at the shop
    Our phones work now with WiFi calling

    What are you buying to get WiFi at the shop and what’s the distance between house and shop?

    Ubiquiti makes good gear. I have their wireless access points installed here. I don’t use home based stuff any longer. Enterprise gear has come down to the price to make it affordable for home use. It’s still to complicated for most to use but far better gear.
