I use my AC for most of the year here in Florida.

I have run Seafoam through the tank, and I usually do it every couple of oil changes.

The tire pressure thing was mentioned to me on another site. They said I should be at "55psi rear (20psi above sidewall) and 65psi front (13psi above sidewall)". I know I'm definitely not inflated that much.

EDIT: I just checked my tire. The MAX PRESSURE is listed as 51 psi.
