650 mile trip in the Towncar this week averaged 24 MPH and we hit 7K on the Ceratec fill. It now has been topped of twice with M1 MH 10W-40 so that is half a gallon when it specs 5W-20 so that could hurt mileage a tad perhaps.

Redline oils tend to be on the thicker end of the grade and use little to no viscosity index improvers which may help too. If I could afford it I'd use nothing but redline fluids exclusively. They are probably overkill in anything but severe servi
