    I ran into a lady and her boyfriend at the car wash and she came over and asked me how to get enough air in her tires. Puzzled, I went over with my gauge. 120psi in the front. I asked why she had so much in her tire? Her response was "It says 185" I told her thats 185 75 16 or what ever it was. Her boyfriend had no clue either. Some people really should take the bus. I was going to check her oil but figured it was a lost cause.

    Reminds me of my brother. He had a 94 Ranger that only got the oil changed when I came to visit about once every year or so. That truck finally blew up after 170k. His current car, a 98 Avalon gets the same treatment but has so far lasted 245,000 miles. Amazingly, he drove from TN to CA last year with the oil cap OFF! He forgot to put it back on and it fell down behind the battery.

    Great stories, i tried going for the 25k oil change with amsoil on my old nissan titan. I replaced the filter and added at quart around 11,500 miles then went to 15,000 miles but I swear the viscosity changed so much that my Mpg dropped by 2-3. I changed the oil at 15k, and the mpg came right back up...so go figure on the 25k change not recommende by me.

    You know, I used the Amsoil stuff one time too. It claims you can go 25,000 miles. I made it to 10k. The stuff looked like tar and the engine was actually using some of the oil. Went right back to dino oil every 3k and its been good ever since.
