Spend my 02¢ wisely...
I just rolled 100K on my way to work this morning! I bought the car in late July with 93K from the original owner and so far the only thing that has been replaced is the A/C condenser (knocking on wood as I'm typing this).
Before I took her on a 1,500 mile trip this last weekend I did the following:
Motorcraft Plugs & Wires
Seafoam In The Tank, Crankcase & Through The Intake
Mobil 1 Oil
Trans Flushed With Seafoam & Filled With Mobil 1 Fluid, New Filter & Pan Gasket
IAC, EGR, MAF & TB Cleaned
Fram Air Filter
Flushed Cooling System
New Firehawks Inflated To 32 PSI
When I crunched my gas numbers for the trip I was pleasantly surprised to find that I averaged 31.7 MPG. And that's driving with the cruise set at 75 MPH, the A/C on, three people in the car and a trunk full of luggage. I was typically getting about 27.5 on the highway before. Well maintained Vulcan power FTW! :ford:
