I drive her daily to school, 22-miles round trip. I have a Ram/Cummins PU, for hauling stuff. My wife has a couple of SUV's, (old/new), my girls have late model Nissians. So enough vehicles around the house if needed, I just like running around in the bug. The engine before this one I drove until exhuast valve #3 would not adjust anymore, and I had to run an extension on that plug because it began fouling with oil-flat FLAT FOUR equals:TUFF design! At that time I was driving 130-miles round trip. You wonder why I like these little cars? Thanks for your input I'll keep you posted... Patrick.
