Took Adam's car out for a little 450 mile round trip from Long Island 
to Oneonta, NY. Adam's starting college there in the fall and we when 
for an orientation thing. 19 gallons of gas and 7 quarts of oil is what 
this trip used. Time to pull the engine again. This was the last time I 
go the "good used (low milage on rebuilt) engine" route. Half of the 
usage is from valve guide seals and the other half is pissing out the 
rear seal. I did see a noticable reduction in usage when we ran it 
under 3000 RPMs. It was a great adventure any way. 
Safety Fast,
