    that'll buff right out!

    Those fools, EVO vs. STi??? That's like comparing ....wait a minute...there's no comparison. The Suby's still working!!! The evo...well... I hope he got the extended warranty.

    So why is the CEL on????

    He makes a good point

    IIRC, somebody on NASIOC said that they're designed to be left on all night without running down the battery. So I would assume that if your battery is in good condition it shouldn't hurt it all that much.

    That "If" is pretty important. It's kind of like saying that you could run C16 on 30 lbs of boost and not shred your gears. Not knocking on you, simply pointing out that every car, every battery, and every driver will be different, meaning that for some of us, drain time is measured in hours, not days. Either way, if your electrical, and battery are in good shape (buy a yellow top optima) you're right, the motor should turn fine in the morning, without having to look for jumper cables.

    It's my car and CEL is on because I don't have the CEL fix installed yet on my rear O2 sensor.

    Alright. I can finally sleep now. CEL's are my #1 annoyance. You should really take care of that as it's really cheap.
