The car will fall apart before you have to worry the proper mix
I can't resist to rely as well.
Yea, your right.
Saturns are a POS. (sarcasm)
That's why they go 200,000 miles easy.(Properly Maintained)
Also have one at 290,00 miles.
Not many other cars can do that.
If you neglect a vehicle & it breaks down, it gets labeled a POS because of not taking care of it.

Why not run the saturn on straight water and no oil, then complain when it breaks down & label it a POS because it wasn't properly maintained.

My two children both drives saturns & call them a POS as well.
Only adding oil when the oil light comes on & adding coolant when the low coolant light comes on. This type of thinking is what gives the saturn a bad reputation.

Find a vehicle made today that runs on gas only, new off the lot that will get 45-48 Mpg.
Better yet, try to find a used vehicle that can get that kind of efficiency.
They are out there, but not many

Any vehicle properly taken care of will last a long time.
