I do all my own and all my LL's stuff too, far more than oil changes. I get rid of waste oil to guys that use it for heat. What's hard for me to get rid of is coolant. I have gallons of coolant I can't move.. I will have more pretty soon out of my bike.

My town takes the oil at the transfer station. They burn it for heat in the DPW garage...

Ethylene glycol coolant is flammable but the results smell funny and IIRC are toxic.

Mac - The glycol does not “wear" out but the other anti corrosion additives are consumed doing their job. Any place that sells coolants should take back the used stuff for recycling. The town solid waste station also should have a place for used coolant but will probably charge a fee.

My bike has a very sensitive cooling system, and while the coolant will almost never freeze, seals conditioners and as you stated anti corrosives wear out doing what they are designed to do. I am not aware of being able to ignite the stuff. It's hell on a waste oil heating system. The places i go to give up dead oil are always sure to ask if there is coolant mixed with the oil. THERE IS NOT and Never will be.

When i ran a shop I had a lot of waste oil in thousands of gallons. For that i sold it and would take the crew to a good beach party, but not always at the beach Lobsters Steamers Corn Bread and Beer. I do have coolant to get rid of and shortly will have more.

I do a walk around before i go and I know things will pass before i get there.
Alas I'm in the sea coast. I have a 5 year old Saab. Took it to local chain, and did not have good experience. Car had just been to the Saab specialist in Maine for I regular maintenance.

Yes.
Both the town and the state get a fee - two fees.
Inspection has nothing to do with the town.
You can renew registration by mail or you can give someone limited power of attorny (a signed letter) and have a friend register the NH vehicle at town hall. Then mail it to you. You may be able to register car online (not up on that).
BUT
If you are out of state with a current registration AND you plan on coming back to NH you can get a "waiver" of the outdated inspection sticker. Its a piece of paper from the town clerk. It allows you some time to drive back and time to get an inspection sticker. There may be a fee for this "waiver" - not sure. Few are aware of this temporary "waiver" of inspection.

You can drive you NH registered car forever out of state as stated above. Out of state authorities cannot or are not trained in every state inspection rules and stickers.

You can register your car three (or is it 4) months ahead of due time. All inspection rules apply if you register car ahead of time.

Back in 1995, my 2nd day driving a brand new truck to work in Mass, I got pulled over in Billerica for the reason of not having a NH inspection sticker. Of course he couldn't ticket me, but he sure slowed down my commute home.

I suspect there is a lot of that going on in Florida. Keep NH registration on a car that hasn't been in NH in years and in doing so take advantage of lower insurance rates. If something happens just tell the insurance company "car was only here this week while I was on vacation type excuse!"

Saabs are being sold cheap in Florida, I recently saw a guy buy two and immediately shipped them up north for resale. Nobody wants them down here, dealer network was spotty at best when times were good and now not many people can even remember how to spell Saab nevermind work on them!

I have always liked that 2 door 900 Turbo SPG model!

For a Saab you will want a Saab after market shop like Importech in N Conway for any work what so ever.

I am a x Saab tech and i know....... You can't just bring a Saab into any shops much less grease monkey shops of the best of which is a Sears.....

That kind of service will Kill Saabs. VIP Midas and that kind of place are for Ford Escorts and junk bubble cars.

Tices could still do a sticker, but I am not so sure i wild let them have a 5 year old Saab either.

99% of shops won't even know how to check ball joints..... get a aftermarket shop even if you must travel. Stick to that shop, and avid ALL discount shops and new Saab dealers. A dealer never sees what aftermarket shops see and so never learn.

Maybe there is a shop in Rye area on Rt 1A that has Brit cars outside. I am not sure what they do, but they may be Saab savvy maybe..... You might ask.
