Tyres Can Save Fuel

Tyres are engineered to give the driver a smoother ride. Every day they design a tyre with a tread or material that can be used to make your drive less bumpy and rough.

The main factors that cause a high usage of fuel are the heavier cars. Not only does the shaft have to give a great force to pull the car along but it also has to be able to grip onto the surface.

When it comes to the faster, higher performing cars the tyres need to have more contact with the floor and a narrower tread. Although these cars already use quite an amount of fuel, the tyres will help the car from consuming too much.

The less you have to rev your car the less fuel will be used in the process of driving. An example of over-revving would be accelerating the car over 3000 RPM when it’s not necessary. Some cars won’t need to use all this power because their cars grip to the floor and tar very well.

When it rains you will notice that your car will slip

Car Leasing

Affordability

The option to lease often removes the concern of taking out a loan or depleting the personal savings. Before signing a contract with a dealer, it is possible to see a full breakdown of future payments including the deposit and monthly fee.

Mechanical issues

With the option to drive a brand new car off the dealership forecourt there is a lower risk of mechanical breakdown. A used car with plenty of miles and years on the clock is a significantly greater risk for mechanical issues. Also, the leasing option is certain to be packaged with a vehicle warranty to give the desired protection in the event of unexpected faults. A warranty is a great way to avoid having to spend extra money on repairs or a regular service.

Flexible contracts

Most contracts give a certain degree of flexibility to make it easy to tailor the terms to match the specific needs. For instance, it may be possible to set the preferred time-frame of the contract or the annual mileage. Other options include the

1. Change your filter regularly

Checking fluid levels regularly and changing the fluids and filters periodically can minimize the risks of breakdowns and prolong the life of the engine, transmission, cooling system and brakes.

You need to change air filters, fuel filters and oil filters on a regular basis to keep your engine performing well. In countries with high sulfur fuel, you need to change your fuel and oil filter in half the recommended time. Air filter needs to be changed every two months in rural areas and deserts, and windy and dusty countries. Most folks change their oil filter when they are draining and replacing their engine oil and fuel filter every six months.

2. Check and replace Fluids

A car is a machine and like any machine it needs oil replaced on a regular basis. Engine oil needs to be changed every 5000 miles, engine coolant flushed and replace every six months and transmission fluid every two years or every 30,000 miles whichever comes first. Flush and replace your brake fluid and power

Car Power Inverters

Single

The most cost-effective option is the single outlet inverter. They are built with a single 3-pronged outlet to accept one electronic item. The current capacity can vary between 150 watts and 200 watts. A useful benefit of this unit is its compact size, which makes it really easy to use and store. Also, the ability to power only one device at a time means there is a low risk of overloading the system. But, the single use option means the all-round use is limited and not a practical choice when multiple devices are in need of charging. If it is necessary to charge several devices, the inverter will be in use for a long time, which can put a strain on the vehicle battery.

Multiple

The Multiple outlet inverters are a lot more expensive and larger than the single outlet units. Most are built to power two devices, although there are some that have up to three and include a higher wattage capacity. This type of inverter is great on a campsite when it is necessary to power a DVD player and television at the same time. When using the multiple outlet inverters it

Snow Tires

Deeper Tread Means More Grip

Snow tires are more effective then standard tires and even all-season tires because they have deeper tread with specifically designed patterns that allows more traction in, slush and ice. They also are made with a specific rubber compound that stays softer and more flexible in the cold weather that provides more contact to the surface and thus more control.

Essential for Winter Driver Safety

Winter tires are absolutely essential for winter driving safety. They not only help you get going in the often difficult driving conditions but equally as important, they allow you to stop. It you are going to the local mountains to ski, up to Whistler or into the Interior, snow tires are often mandatory to pass for obvious safety conditions. Please do not think that your superior driving skills matter when you are sliding on ice or stock in a few inches of snow because they won’t.

Renting Vehicles with Weather Appropriate Tires

Snow tires can be expensive running upwards of $250 per tire plus installation cost. It can be costly for the wallet and time especially considering the annual rush at tire shops when

Car Towing

Tips for the towing driver

If you are the one towing the car you should be cautious that you don’t cause damage to the cars. When starting off, you should start off gently and ensure that you don’t yank the rope which would cause it to break. When changing direction, do it gently and always warn the other driver about it. It’s common for the tow rope to break. If it breaks or you see any other problem, you should stop immediately.

Tips if you are the one getting towed

Getting towed doesn’t mean you shouldn’t have control of your car. Before the towing begins you should turn on the ignition so that you release the steering lock. This is to make it easy for you to steer the car. While on the road, pay close attention to the driver towing you. You should steer and brake your car in synchronization with the driver towing you.

You should maintain tension in the towing rope by applying light brakes. This is to minimize jolting. If the steering or brakes aren’t working you should avoid getting towed as you can’t control the car. In such a

Preparing To Receive Imported Car

Double-check all the requirements you need to claim your imported car. Make sure you have all the required paperwork for customs. These documents usually include the original bill of lading, bill of sale, and proper foreign registration. Don’t forget to check the custom’s website every now and then to see if there are any new forms that you may have to complete and submit or other requirements.

Prepare for all the expenses. Although you may already have paid a lot during the initial shopping and importing process, you will still have to pay some fees when your car arrives. Make sure you have the budget for this and some additional money to cover any unexpected additional charges. The last thing you want is to suddenly scrimmage for some money or even have a hard time coming up with the amount you need when claiming your car.

Consider hiring a customs broker to handle the process for you. If you don’t have the time to do all the work that comes with preparing to receive your imported vehicle, you can always hire a customs broker to do this. Although you will have to pay extra for this service, you can

Recycling Worn Out Parts of Vehicles

1. Oil Filters:

When an oil filter needs to be discarded, it cannot be just dumped into the garbage. The reason for this is that the oil filter contains oil which contains toxins. If released into the environment, it will contaminate the soil, waterways, underground reservoir and marine life.

The recycling of oil filters entails mechanical crushing of the filter to extract all the remaining oil. This leaves the metallic portion. The metal is sold as scrap and reused.

2. Car Batteries:

Many a time a car may have its various parts functioning perfectly but the battery may be malfunctioning. At such times it becomes necessary to dispose of the battery. Disposal of battery should be done with caution as a car battery contains acids and lead which are harmful to the environment.

An old car battery can be recycled to manufacture a new one. Therefore, many battery vendors offer to exchange old batteries for new ones. The best way to recycle a car battery is to exchange a worn out battery for a new one or a recycled one. Using a recycled battery is beneficial as it is much cheaper than a

Pothole Prevention

If you are a commercial property owner, it is in your best interest to maintain a safe and functional premises to avoid any liability, but also to attract more business with better curb appeal. Pothole prevention starts with accurate paving installation, and ends with on-going pavement maintenance. Be sure to choose a licensed and insured paving company for asphalt and concrete pavement installation. They can implement the proper paving strategies to protect your investment for years to come. As for routine maintenance, be sure you are providing regular debris removal, street sweeping, and annual sealcoating.

Improve Fuel Consumption

There are several things a driver can do to increase the miles they get per gallon. Changing up driving habits is the first place to start. Using slower speeds on the interstate, avoiding full-throttle accelerations, using steady speeds, and more, are all effective methods to improving your gas mileage. The first place to start, as mentioned before, is to change your driving habits in general. This includes the following:

  • Use Slower Speeds
  • Empty the Trunk Space
  • Reduce Excess Weight Inside the Vehicle
  • Avoid Extended Idling
  • Combine Errands and Trips
  • Drive Smoothly
  • Avoid High-Cruising Speeds on the Interstate

Slowing down in general uses less fuel. If you exceed speed limits regularly, or accelerate quickly from a standstill, it will rapidly use up the fuel in a car or truck. This is the same for highway cruising speeds. It helps to slow down to the lawful speed limit on interstates for safety; but it can also minimize daily fuel consumption.

Removing excess weight from the back seat and trunk can reduce the overall weight of a vehicle, which allows it to use less fuel to operate. Idling uses a great deal of gas as well.

Try to avoid situations that require a

Import A Car Properly

Check transportation options

After dealing with importing rules in your country, it is now time to check transportation options. Individuals can opt for different transportation options.

Recycling Steel

Conserves iron ore

Most automobiles have a steel frame. Manufacturing steel for cars entails the use of large amounts of iron ore. Hence, recycling steel from damaged cars directly reduces the amount of iron ore used for making steel.

Reduces coal used

Reusing steel directly reduces the coal consumption. This is because coal is needed for refining iron ore for producing steel.

Limestone is conserved

Reduction in steel production reduces the quantity of limestone used. This is because limestone is essential for mining coal.

Energy efficient

The process of melting and re-molding the available steel saves more energy than the process generation of steel from iron ore. Manufacturing steel entails transporting iron ore to a refinery and using large amounts of energy for steel creation.

Reduction in Greenhouse gases

Coal burning plants used for steel manufacture are one of the largest contributors towards greenhouse gases which are harmful to the atmosphere. Recycling steel drastically reduces the number of these gases being released into the atmosphere.

Stay Aware While Driving Far

Allowing yourself to take bathroom breaks is extremely important. It is a fact that a full bladder will affect you more than a high alcohol intake.

Caffeine or coffee is probably the first thing that you would want to take before leaving for your trip. Caffeine is known to keep a person awake and to start the metabolism process. What you don’t want to do is overload it with sugar. If you have a higher sugar level you will end up shaking and noticing things that aren’t important. This is important during any night driving because of the darkness that has metaphorically swallowed the streets.

Make sure that you have a bottle of water whether it’s cold or temperate. You need water in your system to keep your body going and your brain aware. If the weather is extremely hot you might want to take more than one bottle. The brain uses more energy than the body so you will need to keep feeding it.

Eating before leaving keeps your energy levels up and keeps you going. You have to always give the brain fuel for thinking. Try to take fatty foods with you such

Avoid Aggressive Drivers

It’s Not Only Anger

It is a common belief that most aggressive drivers are neurotics with no outlet for their inner rage and of course angry people make a large portion of aggressive drivers. Impatient people in a hurry to get to their destination though can be just as aggressive. Unsafe driving may also be caused by stressed and irritated individuals. Aggression from one driver goads other drivers into aggression and we have a chain reaction to contend with. Your life is much too precious to lose over momentary anger, stress or boredom.

Congestion Breeds Aggression

Every passing year we get more and more new cars on the road. This leads to congestion on the roads and waiting on the crowded roads raises frustration that eventually leads some into aggressive driving.

Motorcycle Riders

More and more motorcycles are now on the road and many motorcycle drivers weave in and out of lines at full throttle. In developing countries motorcycle riders are a leading cause of fatalities and things are not much better in developed countries either. Be more alert when motorcycle riders are passing by your vehicle and slow down if feasible to
