Washed and waxed the car. It'll be undone the next time I drive somewhere this time of year but it's still nice to get the layer of salt off every now and then. It needs a polish but it's still not bad looking for a 360000 km car.

Funny thing with light. Coming from outside I thought my buildings garage was quite well lit. Then I took a picture with the phone and realised it really isn't.

Considering mice under the hood - nasty little buggers. That looks like some of your car's insulation repurposed for their nest. I try to keep a bar of mouse bait under the hood of all my vehicles.

These little guys are destructive. I already removed my hood insulation because it looked like swiss cheese. Of course now my firwall insulation looks the same :shock:
I think it's more of a problem when I let the car sit in the carport for a few days. They start moving in when things are nice a quite.

Maybe she can be part of loaner program? Looks very efficient and diligent.

Sorry. It’s an EPA violation to sell, distribute, or rent cats, even for off road use.

Mrrrppp.

Back on topic. It looks like my mileage is creeping up again. I will keep an eye on this, but after gassing up yesterday I got 29 mpg.

Sort of a neat little tool to add to the funnel collection.
