TMX, my trips are usually as follows - 3 days/week 6 miles daily + whatever tooling around town I do after work. 2 days/week 2 140+ mile round trips usually at around 65-70 mph. Oil is Valvoline 5w30 conventional for 90% of oil changes with occasional oil changes at the dealership with whatever their oil of choice is ( I will find out for sure next time it goes in there but again, I may just start doing it myself so I know exactly what is coming out, going in, and what kind of filter is being used)).

Pliddle, I was REALLY hoping they weren't related but it was an AMAZING coincidence that the CEL came on AND it was low at the same time. Just gotta hope it's not the lines or dreaded canister I guess. Going to get under the car this weekend anyway to swap out ATF so while I'm under there I'm going to check for leaks and inspect all of the hoses and whatnot.
