I'm at 250,000! I happened to be stopped at a light when the number was up, so took a pic with my camera!

Congrats...

What does that translate to in miles?

Thanks, Jim

Congrats.

So that means that 250,000 miles (statute) is equal to 402,336 kilometers. Good grief.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah! My gorilla is bigger than your gorilla.... Sorry that Km, don't equal miles (heh, heh) I ain't braggin' but my work truck only has 302,xxx miles. It gives me a puff of smoke when I start up, but then it has been doing that since it was new to me with 25,000 mi. on the odo. I'm not sure but I think it's almost broke-in. In fact, it's somewhat over due for OFL (oil, filter, lube). Further, I've never (perhaps I shouldn't press my luck) had to do any more than tune ups, oil changes, altenators, starters, and water pumps to the engine itself. Now there is a product!
