Running in the Engine - an emotive topic that's been around almost as long as "Who was England's finest ever Centre Forward" or "Should proper Fish and Chips only ever be cooked in Beef Dripping".

Personal thoughts based on working for an international manufacturer using engines from a range of manufacturers - I'd recommend using a sensible degree of mechanical sympathy, including getting the engine, transmission and braking system gently up to normal working temperatures/pressures before more strenuous 'exercise'. Always remembering that although your oil pressure builds up quickly, your oil temperature can take rather a long time before it reaches is optimum protection point. Also all your bearings/seals need to bed together - even with modern manufacturing tolerances. Engines do not like being started up for very short timescales/journeys - hence why some very low mileage, gently driven ex-granny cars are in such atrocious mechanical condition. Never assume low mileage cars are always a good buy. One of the best cars I've owned had 150k on the clock - every day it got a decent run down the motorway, all components reaching normal working temperatures/pressures and the engine never had problematic carbon deposits. Just my tuppence worth - and all my cars and motorcycles get a 'mechanically sympathetic' run in before being used to do what they were designed to do. 'Thrash it like you stole it' is fine for teenagers getting a new car on pcp and keeping it just long enough before the Repo Man arrives to repossess it.
