comment Use of Neutral Gear in Automatic Transmission
I'd say that "Neutral" is on the way to Reverse where the transmission is disengaged. On the way to park, you still have to go through Reverse, which reengages the transmission. Correct?

comment What kind of gasoline additives will help maintain the engine efficiency/life?
Those are pretty major problems. Out of the many years I have been driving and putting gas from different stations and in different states, I've never seen any of this happen. Thanks for all of your great info, Brian!

I don't recall ever having a car acting differently from the different gas stations. Can you please provide some examples of the problems a car can have? This'll help me know better what to look for.

What do you consider Top Tier? I mainly stick to Shell and BP gas stations, given that they seem to be the most decent looking. There's other brands (which I won't name) whose gas stations are just filthy and seem like they are barely upkept.

Interesting. How can you tell problematic gas stations apart? Aside from general structural appearance, I can't tell much apart related to the pumps and tanks/storage. Additionally, how do you tell your car is unhappy with a specific gas station?

I remember reading about these additives at one point, where it was suggested to cycle between different brands every X amount of km/miles; this cause brand 2 to cleanup any sediments left by brand 1. Is this true/the case?

Thanks for the info! Although, keeping maintenance schedules and fixing issues as soon as they turn up has never been a problem. What I am really interested in is - what else, besides the scheduled maintenance and having issues fixed, can I do to help with extending the engine life? Thanks for the manuals! I have the booklet for both, but never thought about having a copy on the computer!
