The amount it takes to reach the top of that tube in mine is one quart. I'm pretty sure that's nowhere near enough fluid. Since 2.75 quarts came out.

Drove 17 miles this morning but lost 45 miles of fuel range as per the DIC. Gotta love the *shoot* hole that is Chicago traffic. :)

Drove it again, really needs a wash. Got new ballasts on the way since mine were recalled. :)

The list of things to do with this car is growing. Also I'm considering moving the GXP to a legit heated storage, about half the price a month, but it appears to be open floor space in a heated storage warehouse. That gives me chills.

I nearly froze in mine. Let it warm up this morning, and it was nice and toasty, but I hit the interstate, and it got cold, fast.

And, I just cried a little after reading Will's post. My G8 will never be in a heated unit, as they just don't exist around here.

Ha, true! Ed, I forget that you are driving yours year round. Will and I have talked about this before, but we really need an aircraft hanger, to store all cars in, haha!

Drove the truck. Battery seems kinda weak on the 1997 among other things.

Bored as hell in my MIS class, thinking about all the stuff I need to do on my cars. Haha

It's worse when you work in auto parts, I'm constantly looking at parts I remember I need to buy.

Let's see, today, I got sick of looking at the mess that is my Bonneville, so before work I decided to take it to the car wash and hose it off.

This was in the manual car wash, in -8* temps, and no gloves.

Yeah, wasn't one of my brightest decisions. :lol: I did get to drive to work in a rolling block of ice - the car looked really shiny in the sun.

That is something I wish we had around here. We have like 12 car washes, each with automatics (half of them are broke all the time), but you can't get passes for any of them. Need to pay for each run through. They would get my business more if at least one of them did that.

Yeah in Michigan we have a line of nice ones around here. Like 2 tracks and 6 gates with touchscreens. My unlimited pass is in the window i drive up, it scans the sticker and opens the gate and it puts my right through. No wait :)

I have unlimited washes too and love it. Through the Holiday gas station, its good at over 100 locations throughout the state. I pay $30 a month, they put a sticker in the windshield that the scanners read so I don’t even have to go into the store which is nice. I need to use it over 4 times a month to get my money’s worth but I go thru probably 10-12 times on average so it has paid off so far. I also signed up over black Friday weekend when they were running a buy one month, get one month free special. Some are “soft” touch cloth ones but most are touchless and that’s what I always stick to at all costs. I will cancel it over the summer though cause I would much rather hand wash my car!

I'm glad I didn't get the Holiday pass this year like I thought about, I wouldn't have gotten my money's worth. I don't wash my car under 15* unless it's at home in the heated shop, and that has been a rarity this winter...

Yeah I went to get back in my car after work at 9PM and I couldn't get my key in the lock. Had to use the passenger side and thought I was going to break my key trying to unlock my door! -4 in Grand Rapids this morning.
