Congrats!

I don't think anyone would mind if you posted on dummo's mileage milestone thread here, or posted a link to this thread in that thread

At my current rate, the Sun will be a lifeless cinder before I hit 300k
Every couple of weeks, I might drive up and down the driveway a few times just to make sure the rear brakes don't rust up on me.

These little buggers last forever if you can keep rust at bay and oil in the engine! Good job!

Congrats! How is the oil usage, type of oil,...

Mine should get there in about 183k miles or 39.1 more years at this rate. (around 2060).

I have to add a quart every thousand miles or so. The oil loss isn't consistent, but I haven't really noticed a pattern.

I think OldNuc used to say oil consumption increased a bit if you drove over 75 or so on an interstate. I do notice my consumption is slightly higher on highway trips than loping around town
