Next time you purchase coolant choose the one that best matches the color of your vehicle. The colors of coolants can be blended to get close as possible to the vehicles color. If a colour is not available use plain water as this colour is neutral

I just replaced the purge valve on my Hyundai Accent. Got the P0456 but the real indicator was hard starting after filling up with gas. The solenoid worked on it but there is garbage that builds up and keeps the valve from fully sealing when off.

Cost of the solar panels is now well under a dollar a watt. The installation cost is a big multiple of that and needs to be addressed. Utilities are learning how to capture the tax credit through the orders of compliant local regulators.

Subarus have always (normally) been easy on oil (Save for some of the newer FB). Back with the old EJs, they would run anything without complaint. I used to run Shell T5 10w40 as well as QS Defy 5w20 without any complaint. Some FB25B sip the 0x20 som

I put some switchback LED turn signals in the front of the CVPI. They are white in park mode, and switch to Amber when flashing. What's nice about these ones is they shut off the white completely when flashing amber, sorta like a lot of newer Vehicle

I never had a problem with oil usage/burning using Mobil 1, I think it's one of the better oils out there. My car generally uses 3/4 of a quart in 5,000 miles...with Mobil 1 it uses a bit less than other brands.
