Re: My first recovery didn't go so well

Are those factory street tires? You really can't do anything much off-roading with those. Tires are the most important aspect of off-roading.

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Hm, I'm not too sure this would work. The code is "disconnected PCV line", which is exactly what it would read by simply putting a breather filter on the crankcase side and plugging the PCV input...

How do you plan to deal with the CEL? Just leave it on?

Re: PCV line / Oil Catch can

Yes, it's the filter element. The lines were never the issue. I replaced the filter with a stack of mesh copper sponges to collect the oil, no more CEL's. After about a 2,000 mile drive, I had about...

Re: First Long Trip MPG Results

Could be very true. So at steady highway speeds (baring mountains), both would be in 8th gear and economy identical.

Re: Max MPG? Hypermiling the Diesel JGC

Some of these claims are ridiculous. Chicago to Austin is over 1,100 miles. So unless he drove 50 MPH, with a 30 knot tailwind, with 180 PSI in his tires, that didn't happen. I average 20-25 MPG in...

Any iron/steel components on a car will get rust. Just shoot it with some anti-rust protection and off you go.
