I do have a deposit on an Elio which I would use for my commute to work but my Sequoia isn't going anywhere. With 2 kids and a plan to have at least 1 or 2 more I need a vehicle with space, in addition with a wife that is a nurse there is no snow days. While I can appreciate the gas savings (my parents have a Camry Hybrid) it doesn't fit in our plan at this point.

Plus at $13 for 5 quarts I can put it on sale and it all be sold the same day if I ever chose to.

Wow, if this actually works, it would be great. I read the fine print and apparently you can submit a total of two rebates and each submission can have numerous receipts with apparently unlimited purchases. I bought two 5 quart jugs of 0-W20 at Walmart for $22.66 each plus tax. Once the rebates come thru, that's about $12 with tax included for 5 quarts. I will send this one thru first, buy more later in October and wait to see if the rebate on the first come through before sending in another submission.

Up to 2 rebates per household. It can either be 2 receipts or 1 receipt with 2 purchase on it, which is what I did. Used my address for 2, parents for 2, sisters for 2, mother in laws for 2 and 3 of my coworkers for 2. The checks were in my name, wife's name, kids name and the rest deposited in their name and gave me cash

Angry

I guess I read the rebate incorrectly. It apparently is limited to two $12 rebates per household. What threw me was this "Limit two (2) rebates per household, regardless of the rebate amount". I was thing "rebate" was mailing submissions. Oh well, still a good deal.

Do they offer this very often?
Two five gallon jugs a year would pretty much set me up with rebated oil for the years to come.

If your Costco is like ours find a Wal-Mart and buy your oil there. Costco is much more expensive than Wal-Mart's $22.50 for a 5 quart jug - at least in our area.

I went to the Mobil website and it pretty clearly says limited to purchases made at participating retailers, listed below. WalMart is not listed.

No. You need to connect it to the battery bracket bolt, where it's mounted to the floor. Do NOT connect to 12V battery negative.

You are going to run a 2000w amp on a hybrid, Don't you worry about the kind of power you will be pulling on that. It is not like this car was built with a very heavy duty electric system Sure the drive system has a lot of power but it is separate from the on board electric

It all started with the "Toyoda Automatic Loom company"

Mr. Toyoda was a perfectionist in anything he did. They were ask to build a truck for the war. They designed and built one of the best trucks. Those trucks were built tough and were long lasting. I think the story reads the dad handed the company over to his son. They both had dreams of building a high quality long lasting cars to sell to the public after the war.

Here are more details below about why the name change and other interesting facts about the company's history.

Need help with Advent otocam3 software!

Hello. I am having trouble with my Advent otocam3 O.E, style head-unit navigation system. It seems I have a crupted file on the SD card so it won't run the GPS navigation correctly. Unfortunately I can't get anyone from Advent to reply to my e mail incident reports yet. I was wondering if any of you here who have the same unit could send me a backup copy of all the files on the SD card. Or does anyone know where I could get a copy of a new set of files or on a SD card? Any help is appreciated. Thanks. D.F.
