2009 Nissan 370Z: Adding Oil

June 03, 2009

This morning I drove our long-term 2009 Nissan 370Z about 40 miles south of our Santa Monica office to visit MD Automotive in Westminster. MD is where we do all of our dyno testing and we had a couple of supercharged toys to test this morning.

Anyway, when you're testing cars there's always plenty of standing around waiting, so I decided to check the Z's oil level. And guess what?

It was low. So I poured the majority of a quart of 5W-30 (Yes, I checked the manual.).

Total cost? $212. (The oil was just a few bucks, but I spilled some of it on a very expensive shirt.)
