I had old RE92s do that on me. You notice it on the road; you've got a few miles before they totally die.

I never noticed anything while driving on it, but the tires have been off the car for almost two months. If a tire blows up in a basement and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?

My new favorite mineral is tinnunculite which forms when falcon poo reacts with the gases from a burning coal mine. Yeah.

Oil Report

I had my oil tested. I'll ask if the 0w-16 oil could be causing the elevated copper levels. I used the same oil again. I don't do a lot of idling or short trips to explain the fuel, but the oil was drained cold.

Just my opinion: what is made of copper inside your engine that gets an oil bath? There should be another metal with high readings unless you are eating up wire looms. Bronze is an alloy, tin levels are zero, but silicon is up unless your locale is dusty.

I was thinking the same thing. Nothing in there is copper to my knowledge, maybe it's an additive of the oil itself?

Not bad for mushy snow tires and heavy wheels! Max speed is not correct!

Nice numbers! You're certainly beating me.

You've probably noticed but the scangauge doesn't read economy correctly when the car is in lean burn.

I like how the SG doesn't see LB. I can tell how much of a difference LB makes!
