Well, it's my first post. Thanks to "hondaboy" I found out about this site over at C&D forum. But anyways... like most older cars with 160K, the good ol' Protege sometimes puffs a little smoke in the morning, and consumes extra oil. I just bought a couple quarts of Valvoline's MAXLIFE high mileage oil. Just wondering if anyone else has tried that here. Personally, I think I can tell a difference already.
