And BTW, the don't-dos in your post #4 are things only folks who INTEND to hurt their cars would do but it is a list of stupid stuff some people apparently need.

2006 RAV4 V6 4WD Barcelona Red Limited - wife's
2018 Accord Hybrid, Blue Pearl - Dr. Dyno's - 47/47 mpg
2003 Odyssey V6 - handy people & cargo mover
1999 F-250 4X4 Diesel - snow plow, Bully Dog chip
2003 F-250 4X4 - eventual replacement for the '99
2001 F-250 4X4 Diesel - truck camper, TS chip, 20' bike/trike dyno trailer
2004 Suzuki DRZ-400S Dual Sport
1968 Volvo 1800S

It's the pedal (or the handgrip) on the right!!

Allow the car to warm up also once a month give it a fuel injection
I'm just going to ignore this one because it makes absolutely no sense.

'Cleaner' probably.

I add two consecutive doses of Techron to my gas tank every 5,000 to 7,000 miles. And I only use top tier gasoline brands.
