Here you can see the yellow oil filler cap below and to the right of the filter:



This seems standard on modern Subarus.

I forget where it was on mine, but I was able to remove it without lifting the car.

Well they had to do that since they placed an intercooler where the oil filler would normally live. Don't know why they don't sandwich it in the front grill like everyone else. I suppose it does make for a shorter run. Reduces turbo lag perhaps?

I was impressed with how low the engine is, but on a vehicle the size of a minivan? My neighbor showed off all of the features and it seemed like an extremely well-designed vehicle, but when he opened the hatch I remembered what SlowMover (?) said to that hybrid Tahoe cultist about how unnecessary high SUVs are.

A van would have had a much lower platform. That sound important when you are carrying heavy things. He convinced me that if I ever win Publisher's Clearinghouse (or somehow obtain financial independence on my own--ha!) that I would purchase a van for hauling stuff.

Do Toyota or Honda make cargo vans?

I despise HOAs... and to make my wife happy am currently under one. People have the right to form HOAs, just as workers have the right to collectively bargain. We have the freedom to associate and contract how we wish, and that entails the freedom to set restrictions on ourselves (counter-intuitive).

That looks like the pickup my dad had when I was growing up, except his was a step-side. I'd ride on the step holding onto the rail as he drove short distances. It also didn't have seat belts.

Anyhow, Sac can do whatever they want because people don't have to live there. The only thing though, is that if new rules are implemented that diminish the value of property for someone, they need to be compensated. Oregon passed a law saying that if rezoning diminishes the value of property for someone, they are either grandfathered in to their original zoning regulations, or must be paid diminished value. So, if I purchased a place in Sac and worked on my vehicles, then the law changed banning it, I would seek compensation for the loss of my ability to maintain my own property (lawsuit). Seems like an easy one to win, I wouldn't even hire an attorney. You just have to prove that you were harmed by the new law.

Some people want total government control over their lives, even if they have to make their own fake government full of unelected hacks. Then they get power hungry and want to force more people into it.

Others just want to ***** about everything trying to impose their views of other people’s personal property on them


I walked through the “wealthier” neighborhood the other day and
It was silent, cars parked in open garages and in driveways, no one driving on the road, no people outside, no lights inside, no people in windows or mowing, no animals no sound.

It went on for miles that way, was thinking what hell have I entered?

Felt like the last man on earth scenario.

I remember noticing this on the Toyota 86 (Scion FR-S at the time), which is a Subaru underneath. The oil filler cap seems in an awkward place, but I suppose it isn't that bad if you just use a funnel. I like to try and freehand it just to see if I can do it without spilling.

One of my older brothers lives in a brand new subdivision; it's the same sort of place, no kids running around, everything perfectly manicured by low-wage laborers in the early morning hours, no character. But what creeps me out the most is when every house looks the same. Same with his last house, in a slightly older subdivision--I had to use GPS every time I drove there because every house and every street looked exactly the same.
