Speaking of beer, I just ordered my personalized license plate that reads "HLDMYBR" for my jeep and will order "NWCHTHS" for my car later this week and always park them next to each other.

YES, YES, my Alzheimer's caused a typo, shame on me, sometimes I just get so confused!
Thank you for correcting me, BEERHOLDER it is, in fact one in each hand even makes it better...., but not while driving my Wrangler...
Please understand, that I do not support driving intoxicated, for I am dangerous enough sober! I am just so shaky and my reaction time is just so slow, maybe that is why I run off of the road occasionally. When my Alzheimer's kicks in, well I get lost, and it is so sad! Have any of you ever felt lost in life, with no direction to turn too??? Boy is it ever a terrible feeling, OBAMA, I NEED HELP, PLEASE TAKE CARE OF ME..................

Perhaps a helmet with a beerholder on each side with flexible straws?

I hate to bring this thread back up. I plan on keeping mine conventional because I think frequent oil changes are best. Plus if I change it every 3-4 miles then I can rotate my tires at same time. Makes it easy to remember.

Can't be bad. Plus it keeps me on a regular schedule for tires.

I've never changed my own oil before and would like to give it a try. Where do I dispose of the oil??

Drain into an oil pan fill up with new oil. Empty pan into the used bottles and take it to a oil change shop and drop it off.

Autozone, Jiffy Lube, etc., are required to accept used oil for recycling. There is no charge. They won't take it if you have it in an antifreeze container, even if you told them you rinsed it out prior to putting the oil in.

Most of the places I've taken mine to have a 5 gal. per day limit on how much you can drop off.

You tires might last a long time but I don't know about your lug nuts.

Maybe I will just keep going to the place I have been going to. I trust them and I'm not sure the savings is worth my time and effort.

I decided to go with Pennzoil Platinum synthetic. I will still change every 6K miles just to be safe.
