    Does brake fluid go bad?

    I just wondered if brake fluid must be disposed of after opening the can and doing a flush/fluid change?

    Cummins says no biodiesel in 03+ trucks!?

    I'm waiting to hear back from them, but reportedly a few forum members have contacted Cummins regarding biodiesel usage in 2003+ dodge rams.

    Importing european car? 330D?

    The BMW 330D looks sweet. Looks to be about 200hp and 300lbs torque, 6cyl, 45mph hwy. I know grey market importers can somehow get these vehicles, but they must be made to meet emissions. How complex is this process and how expensive? Could a tank of bio make it meet emissions?
