First time I've topped up twice in the same month in a very long time. Getting ready for winter and want to keep the tank as full as possible during that long winter nap.

it's funny, because i do the same thing, but more so that i can trust that the car is prepped and ready to go if my other vehicle suddenly decides that it doesn't want to do anything that day.

Replaced both front calipers. Both had the lower piston siezed. Upper was fine. Fluid did not look contaminated.

Took it for a drive to one of our favorite hiking spots after it's been sitting in the garage for the last two weeks. I mainly use it for autocross doing the season (~25 events), but I forgot how much I enjoy this car for just cruising around and having fun with. It goes away when they start salting the roads, which might be late December or late November depending on the weather this year.

I don’t know how to reset the little infographic on the bezel that says average speed, mpg, etc.

I wanted to do that to my BRZ today but couldn’t.
