NV Zeno, Bi-annual inspection, November is my renewal month.
Current test is only good for 60 days and I could not wait a few more months with an incomplete registration.
That's why we call it the "People's Repulic of Kaliforneea" (Thanks Arnold )
DMV here is Foobar (filter mode on).

This was before I read about the green scrubbie pad trick in the PCV hoses just above the Valve covers. Oil consumption is down, but still 1/2 qt. for every 600 miles or so.
Something is leaking onto my Y-pipe.......................

Home Depot was $13.69 + tax. Good thing they were out of stock, forcing me to check the local Ace.
Don't buy the 1 qt. containers, they are about $6.00 each!
So far, I think it works, even if marginally.
I topped off with regular fuel after the test
I Passed smog with a 20 yr. old car with 280k mi........
Gotta love Sube's..........
