Thanks for the reply, I'm mostly interested in reducing stress on the system due to high running temperatures, especially as our running joke is that we live on the surface of the sun most of the summer after we set a record a few years back with something like 114 straight days that breached 100F. We thought we knew heat from living in NE FL and spending much time in your neck of the woods of central FL, but we were cured of that silly notion by TX. I'll be interested in the oil consumption as well. Our N63 (knock on wood) has never indicated needing oil between oil changes (I've only remembered to check once before an oil change and the indicator was still at max, but our oil intervals usually are due to time rather than mileage).
There's no need to panic until it is time to panic.
