How about washing your car? Does it eliminate the need for drying?

Yeah man either way will work its just a matter of preference. I dont have Jeffs water purifying system so I prefer to use distilled water over my tap water. With my method you dont have to disconnect anything to put in the t-fitting (which I'm sure is not difficult) either but you end up paying a little more for the extra distilled water. Either way your all your doing is rinsing out your radiator haha. And hey Alex we need to learn to paint like this, maybe Jeff can teach us the ways of art lol. Pretty sick vid tho.

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

Did some work to the old girl this past weekend when I traveled down to my parent's house in Arkansas: replaced my autodimming side mirror (it was showing double vision due to the liquid behind the glass separating), new PCV valve, new serpentine, new plugs, new MAP sensor, and emptied out my catch can. She's now got over 116k on the clock

Then I drove back from Hot Springs. Here's my trip data:

Distance: 433.5mi
Time: 7am-1:50pm (minus 2x10min piss/fuel breaks so 6hrs30min
Avg mph: 66.69mph (I hate small towns!)
NOTE: I basically stick between 10-15mph over the posted speed limit.
Fuel spent (91 octane): 25.803gal
Calculated mpg: 16.8mpg.

Not too bad for heading through the AR mountains.

For reference, conditions basically averaged at the following:
Voltage: 14.0-14.5v (depending on sub usage and speed)
Transmission Fluid Temperature: 133-138F
IAT: 42-44F (~2F over ambient)
Coolant Temp: 206-208F
