Sorry to get off topic, but do you use conventional oil, or synthetic?squirrel said:I picked up my xB on the way to work, so I kept the car between 55 and 65 mph on the freeway for appx 35 miles. I drove it home,from work, 58 miles, and varied the speed between 60 and 70 mph. The same the following day to and from work, and then on my day's off, for three days, I varied between city and freeway for about 400 miles.
I then changed the oil, and it has been running fine the last 48k miles.
Many roadtrips to SoCal, Monterey, Reno, Redding, San Diego, and other places in the Bay Area.
