    Are you speaking as a CARspec rep, or just quoting them? Either way, having seen so many EGR and intake manifold horror-story pics, I don't think the revised intake manifold does squat, or that "occasionally accelerate briskly (when safe)" will make a difference, or that Toyota gives a rat's @ss.

    From what I've read on Prius Chat, it seems the ones that drive most city, and drive 75mph and faster all the time,
    experience more clogging of the cooler, and oil in the intake, and use more oil.

    Those that drive more, and longer on the highway and keep it under 70mph, have less clogging, less oil in the intake,
    and use less oil between oil changes.
    NO scientific studies or anything.

    I cleaned mine at 138,000 miles and the cooler wasn't clogged.
    Very little oil in the intake. And I used 1 quart in 10,000 miles. About 25-35% I was
    driving 70-75mph a lot of the time on the interstate versus my normal 65mph.

    We were at 87% this morning. Point being, this isn't normal for us. We all know other areas of the country have higher humidity. I expect that. :)

    When I check engine oil level stick on mornings, at times I see water drops hanging on the top underside of inverter and brake fluid reservoirs :mad:

    That's why you guys get rusty inverter bolts, hose clamps and so forth. Park under cover or in a garage help?

    Yea, I know. This year is a record year for heat and humidity. I may have to go north for the summer! :)

    We also have had this invasion of this new strain of mosquito from Asia. Its saliva is extremely toxic and causes a bacterial infection. It burns more than it itches, swells up the area with a hot to the touch lump and each bite takes 4 to 6 weeks to clear up. Insect repellents don't deter them either! They are small and nearly invisible and breed like there is no tomorrow. Did we piss off China or something?
