I changed oil for the first time this weekend. I always stick with factory oil filters & after reading various posts on the matter I decided to use Mobil 1. I didn't drive it to work today, so I don't know if I have any piston slap.

I will use a funnel to refill next time, the filler neck makes it nearly impossible to just pour in the oil without spilling- H6 owners know what I mean, I don't know if H4's are this way- & when you do spill its too tight to reach down there & sop it up.

I like the dual trip odometers, lets me keep track of mile-per-tank on one, & miles-since-last-oil-change on the other.

Changed the air filter too, it was quite oily on the fresh air side- I wonder if the PCV or something vents upstream of the filter?

You will notice that your temp needle will always hang below the midline. I didn't notice a mileagle increase, but I've got a heavy right foot
