    To properly break in a new engine you are to drive the first 1000 miles alternating your city and highway driving. This allows your engines sensors to go through diffrent conditions to operate properly and your engine to form a "memory" so as to operate at maximum efficiency...... Just be sure you run plus grade fuel for maximum mileage unless your car manufacturer specifies premium fuel.....

    Dont know why you would want to push it? Ask the dealer about driving habbits. I certainly wouldn't be racing it for a while.
