SOHC - '92 Saturn SL
Thanks: 0
Thanked 0 Times in 0 Posts
Lurker lands

Hello all

Have lurked here and elsewhere for a long time. I bought new, a 92 Saturn SL. This car is still my daily driver, and I still just love to drive it (even with the worn out struts :-)>. At 228,000 miles and holding (the odometer broke). I can only estimate somewhere around 350,000 miles or more.

Obviously this makes tracking mileage a chore and so I only do this occasionally (Google earth to measure distance, etc.). When I do my part I can get 40 MPG.

Only car modification, a vacuum gauge, and knowledge from this site and others.

My background is in electrical engineering.

Thanks to all for the thoughts, knowledge, stories, fuel saved, and trees saved.

Welcome to EM! I'm hoping to reach 200K in my SW2, but I can hardly imagine hitting 350K!!!!
