Car Stuff

· I checked my owner's manual not too long ago and found out that Honda recommends changing the oil every 7500 miles. So it turns out that while I thought I was abusing my engine by changing at 5000 miles, I was actually doing it a favor. Excellent.

· After a quick check, it turns out my clutch master was low. It's amazing how much easier it is to shift gears when there's enough transmission fluid in the gearbox.

· The manual says I should definitely change the air filter more than once every 35,000 miles. Oops. Didn't seem to have any bad effects though, so I guess that one's not too important as long as I don't make a habit of driving through constructions sites and deserts.

· I should probably replace my floormats at some point. Not only are they stained from more than a decade's worth of spills, I've managed to wear most of the way through the point where my right foot pivots between the gas and the brake.

All in all, it's not in bad shape considering it's halfway to becoming a "classic".
