    47 mpg x 0.93 = 43.7 mpg! Better than me! I'm right at 43, except my couple towing experiments brought me down to about 42.7 mpg.

    Wow, you don't mess around when it comes to oil changes! I'm glad that you are happy with your Mirage. I still love mine after all these years.

    Yeahh im fairly serious about maintenance, I follow the severe duty schedule as most people are severe duty without realizing it. I do it every 3000-4000 miles, Even if the oil can take the 7500 mile interval (which it can) it only holds 3-3.2 quarts and regularly sits between 2800-4000 rpm for me so there's not a lot of capacity there for heat/wear. I want that engine to be as shiny inside at 0 miles as it will be at 200,000 miles ill be able to eat off the internals. I figure 3500-4000 mile intervals will keep it from varnishing up. All oils varnish no matter the brand.
