SUV Gasoline Saver

The idea of using a SUV gasoline saver kit is using hydrogen gas (H2) as a supplementary power supply. The hydrogen gas can easily be generated from water through an electrolysis process. It is just basic science. We know that water is made from 2 parts hydrogen and one part oxygen thus its name H2O. Hydrogen gas is produced when the electrolysis device is running with power from the battery. The next step is to vent to H2 into the engine air filtration system.

When the engine is running, fresh air and the hydrogen gas will be sucked into the combustion chambers. H2 in the chambers will combined with gasoline vapor and ignited. The explosion caused by the gas mixture is much greater due to the high potency of hydrogen gas. When a car is using the same amount of gasoline and is achieving higher engine output, the vehicle will travel further thus increasing its MPG. Higher mileage equals to better fuel cost savings for the SUV owners. In essence, the system converts a SUV into a hydrogen hybrid vehicle.

To implement a SUV gasoline saver is not a complicated process. The are no major modification done on the car engine and the whole process can be reversed. To get started with the conversion process, you will need to get an instruction guide. Most of the guides are available from the internet

Taking Care of Your Car and Brakes

Look after the engine too. Avoid opening the bonnet unnecessarily so that it doesn’t get exposed to too much dust. Check the oil and water to ensure that it remains topped up for the efficient functioning of the vehicle. If you suspect that there is something wrong with the engine don’t be tempted to repair it yourself. Rather let a qualified mechanic check it and repair it for you.

Take care of the wheels and tyres. Make sure that you have the tyres inflated regularly to prevent it from running flat. This also optimises your driving if the tyres are sufficiently inflated. If you notice that he tread is low, then change the tyres. Don’t drive with them for long as this could lead to the car not being able to come to a stop as quickly as it would with new tyres.

Check the brakes often especially when you notice something unusual. If you hear the brakes squeak or whistle, or feel that the brake pedal is spongy, then get it checked. There could be a problem with the brake elements such as the brake discs. Rather be safe than sorry when it comes to this car part.

In general, you should take your car for a service every year or when the set mileage is reached for your particular vehicle. During a service all the parts of your car will be checked to ensure that it is roadworthy and safe to drive. Keep a record of the car’s service so that you build up a good history. This will serve you well when you want to sell the car. It will increase the value of your car, especially if you take good care of it.

4×4 Suspension

Vehicles are used for both short as well as long distances. If you use your vehicle for a long distance travel, you might come across hard terrain while driving. Driving on a hard terrain can be quite difficult. But by making a few adjustments to your vehicle, you can make driving easy in a difficult terrain.

Adding items like 4×4 suspension kits could offer the best solutions to driving on hard terrains. Some of the important Items that could be used to improve your vehicle’s suspension are leaf springs, steering stabilizers, coils, shock absorbents, torsion bars, shackles, hardware etc.

There is no shortage of suspension kits in the market. You have to choose the right options which suit your vehicle. The next step is to get those materials installed in your vehicle. These materials will help in enhancing your vehicle’s suspension, both on smooth roads as well as hard off roads.

Obviously, it is always easier to drive on smooth roads. But even if you are living in an area where all the roads are smooth, still you can use drive suspension options to make driving more enjoyable.

If you drive on roads which are not properly maintained then driving becomes a tedious process. Mostly roads which are less frequently used are not in good shape.
They are full of potholes, obstructions and other hazards. Driving on such roads, becomes even more difficult if your vehicle is carrying a heavy load. If you have roof racks filled with load then you will find driving extremely hazardous. In case, your suspension is not in proper order then your load could fall on the road. In worst case scenarios, you could also suffer from accidents. So it is of utmost importance that the suspension of your vehicle is in proper order.

Report Problems to Your Mechanic

In the same way, take careful note of the behavior of your car. Remember both the changes in the car’s behavior, as well as any associated noise that happens at the same time. For example, the simple problem of a flat tire has a distinct flapping noise, and is also accompanied by a very definite steering problem. Not all problems have both components. One of the first signs of a CV joint problem is a simple clicking noise as the car makes a sharp right hand or left-hand turn. However, many car problems have both a behavioral and sound component to them, so listen carefully and feel for any differences in the running of the car. (If a CV joint problem is left unattended, there can be a significant performance difference when one wheel seizes up and no longer turns, but we hope that the car is not left to get into that condition!)

In addition to this, try to describe precisely when and where the changes to your car happen. For example, the CV joint problem above only happens when the car is taking a turn. Furthermore, pinning down the location of the clicking noise will indicate which CV joint is having a problem, whether it’s on the right hand side or the left-hand side. It is important for the mechanic to know that some problems only occur after the car has been driving for 10 minutes, or occur just as the car starts and then goes away, or other time dependent behavior.

Try to be as descriptive as possible when talking about the problem, even if it seems a little foolish. The old joke about a lady talking to her mechanic, and describing a sound like a bowling ball rolling around in the trunk, only to find that it was actually a bowling ball rolling around the trunk. However precise description is of great benefit. If the noise sounds like marbles in a cardboard box, or a bunch of safety pins dropping on the floor, say so. One of these phrases may cause an “aha” moment for the mechanic and make the diagnosis problem really easy.

A list of common descriptive sounds that might be applied to a car are: clicking, squealing, growling, whistling, thumping, humming, chirping, rattling, or knocking. Smells that might be reported to your mechanic are: burning oil, burning plastic, a putrid smell, or other strong or slight smell. Finally, if anything seems unusually hot to the touch that should also be reported to the mechanic. (Do NOT touch metal components on a running or just turned off car with your hand! They can easily be hot enough to burn you.)

Porsche Cayenne

The 4.8 liter V8 engine with 385 horse power output will make the SUV sprint with bulky body to achieve 6.4 to reach the first 60 miles. With 6 Triptionic-S Transmission gets Cayenne to reach 155 miles per hour top speed. It expends around 14 mile per gallon and 21 miles per gallon on the Nsouly.

The interior looks very nice and sophisticated. Almost every single thing in this vehicle is covered by leather. The front console gives full control ever everything. Instead of paddle levers, Cayenne voted to use shift switches. Completed with a large LCD screen for navigation system and BOSE (R) Surround 12 speakers Sound Audio System with SIRIUS Satellite Radio that could provide almost 200 satellite radio, they will add the comfort in driving. The automatic climate control system brings up with other 2 additional rear outlets. It even has computer inside! It is also included driver’s and passengers’ airbags with multi-stage deployment. All seats are equipped with seat adjustment power to comfort each one of passenger inside for height, lumbar, six and tilt adjustments and for the two seats up front and rare are with arm rests.

From the outside, Porsche Cayenne takes some of Porsche 911 look. With its 21 inch wheel, Cayenne also has other highlighted exterior elements such as projector beam lens halogen headlamps, fog lamps, and windshield wipers with auto-intermittent rain and wipe sensor.

Avoid Car Repair Scams

The first and most important tip I can give you is to seek recommendations from people that you know before taking your car in for repair. Word of mouth is a very powerful advertising medium and it works both ways, most people will take pleasure in telling you who to avoid if they have had a bad experience with someone in particular. Ask around your workplace, talk to family members, even your Wealthface may be able to shed some light on who will look after your car well and not charge an arm and a leg for it.

Be wary of auto repair workshops that advertise cheap oil changes with a safety check of your vehicle thrown in for free. Sure there is honest mechanics out there that are genuinely concerned for your safety and don’t want to see you driving an unsafe car but there is also some out there that use this tactic to first get you to bring your car to them and then do their best to find thousands of dollars worth of work that just has to be done before you drive the car from the shop. Think about it, in business do you think you would be wise offering something for free if there wasn’t anything in it for you? Even if it is a vehicle safety check that takes half an hour at the most to complete.

The third tip I can give you is to be aware of what parts are being used on your vehicle and the markup that comes with those parts. Many workshops will insist on using genuine parts only, that is parts from the manufacturer of your particular vehicle. Unless your car is still under the factory warranted there is no real reason not to use aftermarket parts when they are available. The aftermarket part is usually a lot cheaper and more often than not the warranted on these parts equals or exceeds the genuine part warranted anyway.

Spare part markup is another area where we can stand to save ourselves some money. When a mechanic buys a part there is a recommended retail price that goes with that part. However that is only a recommended price and if the dishonest mechanic can get away with charging more you can bet your life they will. Before agreeing to having the repair carried out ask your mechanic what markup they charge on their parts and if they are honest they will have no trouble answering your question.

So there you have just a few ways that we can help protect ourselves from car repair scams. I wish I could say that all workshop owners are honest but I can tell you hardly a day went by that we weren’t listening to customers complaining about the price and the service they received from certain mechanics. It is a shame that these people don’t realize that they are shooting themselves in the foot when ripping people off as the word soon gets around and as I said word of mouth is a very powerful advertising tool, both in a positive way and a negative way.

Benefits of Car Leasing

Great choice of vehicle

When buying outright the choice of vehicle is a lot more limited because it needs to be within your affordable price range. But, with car leasing, you aren’t buying outright, so the ability to find a perfect make or model is that much more feasible. If you have been after a particular car for a while, but it has been out of your price range, the option to lease the vehicle may be a great option.

Affordability

The option to lease often removes the concern of taking out a loan or depleting the personals 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’s 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 ability to include vehicle servicing or maintenance.

 

Car Shipping Made Easier

Whatever the reason, transporting your vehicle to the final destination rather than driving it over can save both money and time. Finding the right professional transporting company saves you a lot of sweat without the stress or hassle of doing it yourself. Auto transport is now made much easier than before. It can be done in a few simple steps as discussed further.

Shipment Listing

A clear budget estimate has to be prepared first to successfully transport the car. Deciding on the right type of trailer or lorry to load the car depends on the total weight, value, time, and exposure of the vehicle during transportation. Any special conditions for extra care have to be mentioned earlier. One of the main components in calculating the cost of car shipping is the distance involved. Also, taller and longer cars need additional adjustments and are more expensive.

Two car transport alternatives are available such as enclosed or open. The enclosed option is ideal in the case of luxury vehicles and provides full protection during shipping. In the open transport, the car will be transported on an open or exposed trailer and costs less. If the car is running, loading onto the trailer becomes easier. Otherwise, it requires a winch and other equipment for loading onto the trailer, which increases the Dailyhawker.

Get Multiple Quotes

Once you fill in the vehicle data and your requirements in major professional websites, quotes from auto shipping companies come flooding in. You can share your concerns regarding their insurance, safety, and past experiences. You can also review the profiles of the shipping companies using feedbacks from past customers. Also, photos of the equipment and vehicle used for auto shipping will be shared by top-rated companies. Once you have negotiated the right quote, get the transport contract done.

Shipping and Delivery

The contact details of the shipping company will be provided once the best quote is approved. A direct meeting can be had with the transport company to discuss regarding pick-up, transport, and drop or any additional information required.
