39.5mpg?!??!?! Wow!!! It's like have a cool Prius. Good job! For a twin does this count as hypermiling?
How'd you do it? The usual tricks? No jack rabbit starts, avoid stopping, highest gear, no faster than 55mph, no air conditioning, windows up, as few passengers as possible, eat salad, empty trunk, drive with the wind behind you, lots of coasting, and driving within a trucks slipstream (aka drafting)?

took the car for it\s 30k oil change at Toyota. Car came home leaking oil, screwing up the pavers royally. Funny how the receipt said everything checked out 100% (including no leaks). Gotta call the dealership and bring her back in first thing tomorrow. This car has NEVER had an issue until this. I placed a metal pan under the car and it's definitely coming from the oil drain (no trace of leaks anywhere). If it's cross threaded are they going to find a way to leave me stuck footing the bill to replace the oil pan?

You forgot that maybe the route was all downhill

Well, that sucks

If it wasn't leaking when you took it in to have the oil changed and it's now leaking, I reckon they should fix the leak at their expense.

Before you drive it anywhere you best check the oil level. Also, I'd suggest you slip under there and make sure the drain plug is at least finger tight (just in case they forgot to tighten it).

Happened to me twice on a new car and I actually made a thread about it. The drip drip usually stops after a week or so and the volume isn't affected. Now I just tell whoever is changing my oil to make sure the plug is tight.

Today, July 2nd, I purchased my FR-S six years ago. I have 74,204 miles as of 10 min ago. Which works out to 33.86 miles per day. The new feeling is gone, but I still love it, have projects in the works for it, and am having a tone fun driving it!

Tide Pods are ok I guess. Call me old school; but when I want that soapy taste in my mouth like I been cursing and my grandma caught me, I grab a bar of LAVA for that nostalgic feel.

My grandfather would get upset if grandma used his Lave soap, so she would use her soap

FINALLY installed my front lip, after buying it over 2 years ago. Three threaded rivets and some 3m double-sided tape and it's on there nice and solid.
