I would say once a season, every three months.

One of the beautys of doing your own car repair is you can manage costs by a simple solution plus awareness.

A garage can't do this for liability, and will make you replace $2000 of OEM fuel line from Sweden.
That is a great point! I just did one yesterday and it looks good. I'll probably check it out again in a month to be sure of short term success before making a point to poke my head under there a few times a year

Using work resources to fix your transportation to work is clearly fair game.

Thats the defense I used when I built an entire garage out of Post-Its.
