You probably dont brake hard often enough to keep the rotors clean from rust, When you have got too much rust on the rotors it will start to increase the wear on your pads.

Your engine is already at 600 rpm even before starting the car! (well, at least the tachometer is showing 600 rpm before you even crank the engine)

Depends on who you ask. I never have changed the oil before storing and keep my vehicles in a cold Michigan garage. One UOA performed had oil in the sump 18 months and 12k miles and all was good.

Mobil is $25 standard here in Ohio. Sometimes there are sales to bring it down, but $25 seems to be a standard price for majority of synthetics.

Interesting experiences here. I would have to think there was a reason GM did NOT jump on the 20 grade bandwagon long after others had done so. JMO.

If I change my oil in my Mustang before I put it away for the winter do I need to dump that oil when it comes out of storage or can I run it for a normal change interval when it comes out?
