Today is the big day.... Comrade Trabi and I just made it to 40,000 kilometers today, in just under a year and a half. It was just before Mayday 2012 I rescued my dear Comrade from that awful body shop. We started driving together on Mayday itself! So, let's see... 40,000km in 18 months... that's an average of 2,222km a month! For the Metric-Impaired, that's about 24,800 miles in 18 months or 1377 miles per month. This must be some kind of record! We will probably make another few hundred km before the month is out. Roughly 133 tanks of fuel were consumed in the process, fill ups made usually with about 4 liters remaining. As I switched from non-synthetic Prennzoil TC for break-in fairly early on, well over 50 quarts of Lucas Semi-synthetic TC rated oil were used. Probably close to 60 quarts. We had many adventures, including two trips to Wisconsin Dells. Nearly all of them are chronicled right here at TrabantForums. Comrade Trabi is showing a little wear but sounds ready to start another 40,000 anytime we want.
