comment Why would engine noise in cabin be much worse in one vehicle compared to another?
A point of clarification: Dynamat and equivalent products are pretty good at damping out higher frequency rattles and squeaks. They can't do much about lower frequency booms and drones (like tire and exhaust noise) due to the wavelength of those sounds. In those cases, you need to work on the sources of the noises (the tires and the exhaust).

comment Is RPM tied to gass usage?
This question is functionally equivalent to a previous discussion of final drive ratios: few revs = less gas. mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/661/57

@Tek'eek, perhaps this is the place to create such a thing. A wiki page could become what you describe.

comment How far can I drive with too much oil?
@Sarah, please take our suggestions on "how to deal with this yourself" as a compliment. You are clearly at a level above the "a car is an appliance" crowd since you're checking your oil with some regularity. One of the things that we're trying to develop is a set of suggestions for those who are away from home, lack a broad selection of tools or are in limited circumstances.

comment How far can I drive with too much oil?
@Sarah, it's your car so, as usual, you have to make the call. If you'd like to give it a try, tubing of the right diameter is likely available at a supermarket, drugstore or hardware store.

comment How far can I drive with too much oil?
For clarity, did you check when the engine was cold or hot? How about when you filled the oil?
