    Is that reservoir on the far side of the car? If so, you better run it at half full or it'll cause the car to pull in that direction.

    I removed my spare tire and filled the empty space with gas so I can travel further. My car smells like gas now.

    Put Helium in your tires. It'll make your car lighter & it'll get morer MPG. Not to mention it'll just float over the pot holes
    I didn't know what to do, so I didn't do anything

    For a minute, I thought about making a BMX frame that was helium-tight, with a lot of compressed helium in it. To make already light bikes super-light. But I think the physics of it is that it would require so much helium to make a substantial difference in weight, it would be dangerous to have that much pressure inside a frame. Crash just right and it might become an I.E.D.

    Hey, Ya gotta take chances sometimes... Like when I recharged the AC on my old Ranger with Propane because nobody would sell me R-12 & I was too Cheep to convert it to R-134...
    I didn't know what to do, so I didn't do anything

    I had to fix the air conditioner on a Beechcraft King Air by replacing the compressor and recharging the system. Found a guy who had some "OZ2" refrigerant that was better than the R-22 and way better than the R-134a crap everyone had to use. That turned that AC unit into a freezer! Only later did I discover "OZ2" was propane!

    Yep, 2.8 liters is the correct amount to be on the max mark of the dipstick. If the car comes from the factory without more oil than max mark should have a reason and user manual is clear about that.
