    Well my wife just sent out the last payment on the Expedition. We told the salesman we would have it paid off in 3years.

    2019 Expedition Max XLT 4x4, bought Sept 2020 with 39,000 miles. Paid off March 2023 with 61,000 miles
    :beer:

    I don't really want to think about the cost per mile... fuel, insurance, oil changes, all that darn refrigerant.

    I think I have a slow leak somewhere...

    There is dye in the high pressure service port I tightened the valve with a proper tool but I think I'll change that valve out. I just put $50 (8oz) and it got to here:

    I guess 16ounces will get it to 50psi, it's about 75°f today. I know one service line was replaced but I need to find the ticket to know which it was.
    If it was the high side I'll ask them to make it right.

    I remember R-12 at $1.00 per pound. R-1234-YF, just take my money and invest it in PFAS.

    You might check with the local flaps to see if they will loan or rent a leak detector.

    More later but the Expedition is a darn good choice for pulling a 4000lb camper.
