I view many things in the Operator Manual as a dumbed down guide as compared to the detail found in BeVo.

There are worse things to follow though. Some of the facts/advice as quoted from dealership car salesmen comes to mind.

But there are already many additive threads. Back to the sticky Water in Fuel Light topic.
