I need to get rid of my Roadmaster wagon and its 12mpg, filled up a couple of days ago and it cost me just shy of $100, and I have to fill up every 1.5 weeks. (Gas just hit $5.00 for me)

You really take care of a high mileage car! Will be ready for another road trip in no time at all. I’ll be interested to hear if the fuel filter was gunked up.
@Speedwings
Yeah it’s always expensive where you are. USA has always had really cheap gas compared to the rest of the world

I got gas on Saturday for $3.61. Now, four days later, the average price in town is $3.89. It doesn’t hurt my wallet but I’m not happy about it either. America only imported about 8% of our oil from Russia. The war in Ukraine shouldn’t have this much of an effect on the price of gas.

There’s a station near me that offers something called diesel efficient for 2.99 but apparently it destroys your fuel system and what not. It happened to my manager when he used it and he said he’s not going back to that station again

Back to my roots
The Jetta didn’t skip a bit to Texas and back to Oregon for Harmonycon. The suspension was definitely a bit more harsh with the Bilstein Monotube B6s, but it feels like it’s mostly lack of spring now, over-dampening on extension. However it’s a lot more confident on bump now.
Skidplate worked nice, and the ScanGauge provided a lot of useful info. The grille block was almost necessary to not freeze in the snow storm that caught us in Wyoming.
This week I’m doing an oil service with some synthetic flushing fluid. I’m putting a new oil filter and some fresh Valvoline. I’m keeping the new oil there for a few miles, then using a second can of fluid, draining, and later pulling the pan to clean the pickup strainer and checking the oil pump chain and tensioner. We are approaching 180K miles.
I have some VW 507.00 oil (compatible with PDs) in 0W-30 which I’m curious on how it will affect the engine drag specially on cold start compared to the og 5W-40 spec. It was a bit more expensive than the Valvoline 505.01 (which is cheap at $25 for 5 quarts) but I got it an while ago and for a good deal regardless.
Also I will add a can of Ceratec once everything has been running good and stable. I’ve seen it been tested for close to 2% to 4% engine drag difference.
Might also need some upper engine mounts, im getting a bit much vibration on the cabin at certain revs, might have to do the the new lower dogbone I put in.
Oh I also ordered a manual transmission oil service kit and a fuel filter. I did run 2 tanks of synthetic diesel from Propel and I’m curious if it lifted some deposits from the fuel tank into the (unfortunately old) fuel filter.

Rode in the back of a Camry yesterday.
The interior was roomy with a nice little armrest, but my foot wouldn’t fit through the door!

@RainbowDash69
The Ranger Raptor is the only Ranger I’d want. The problem with the Ranger is that it occupies an awkward middle ground between the Maverick and the F-150. It’s smaller than the F-150 but still too large for my garage. It’s larger than the Maverick but cabin space is still too compromised. It costs almost as much as the F-150 and gets similar fuel economy.
The C class starts at about $45k, which sounds reasonable but that’s only the base 4 cylinder. The C I’d want is the C43 with the V6 and that starts at $60k. The top of the line turbo V8 C63 starts at $70k. Now that is overpriced.

Ford Ranger Raptor is epic. They put the 3.0 V6 in it with an adjustable exhaust and heavy duty shocks/suspension! This is what I wanted the Bronco Sasquatch package to be like.
wow
@kleptomage
I’m sure lots of Lexus LC owners are being careful with their cars. Surely this will be the last V8 powered Lexus coupe to be made.
Oooh the new Kia EV sure is fancy. Looks amazing and proves the brand is ready for the EV world. They come prepared and ready to compete with Tesla.
C class is probably the only Mercedes sedan/coupe I would look into since it’s not insanely overpriced!

The best time to go to the auto show is during the week when there are few people. Unfortunately, with all the problems the industry is having with supply chains, it was a much smaller show than usual.
There was a beautiful Lexus LC500 convertible with black metallic paint that sparkled even in dim light, red leather seats, and those cool infinity tail lights. The LC is such a nice car.
The Supra does not make good use of space. It’s tiny inside. The visibility and interior space is almost as bad as a Camaro.
The Ram TRX is an insane truck and I like it.
The Kia EV6 seemed popular with the small crowd. I admired the tail light design.
The Mercedes C class is surprisingly spacious. Even with the sunroof it had more headroom and better visibility than my own car. I would not mind having a C class.
