Every driver wants more engine power of the vehicle on hilly track or on a highway where speedy traveling is required. You want more horsepower but you have ever thought about fuel economy? Due to rapid increase in the fuel over past few years, most of the people have become conscious about the coast of filling up fuel.

Better solution

Better solution

But there is a solution for you, you can make improvement in the performance and fuel mileage. For controlling the operations of the engine there is a central controlling system in almost every vehicle this system may be considered as computer. You can reprogram the memory of this computer with new better software which can operate engine in a better way to get better mileage.

Effect of program installed on vehicle performance

Advancement in every technology has made work easy for people and the information is easily accessible to people. IPods and other digital pads have made entertainment and information available in a new way and betterment has come. Reprogrammable devices installed in the vehicles have widely increased the vehicle performance. Many automotive programmers are working on making better programs, so that these programs can control all the operation of the vehicles.

Easy installing process

Installing these programs on your vehicle system you do not need any specialty, it is simple you will have to the plug cable of the programmer in the connector under the dashboard of the vehicle. Read the full story

We will tell you how to make a solar heater from a car radiator. Radiators can be used to make cheap and strong water heaters.

 Solar kits

Simple Technique and Simple Tools

You don’t need to be an expert in auto mechanics or electronics. Any average person without any knowledge of engineering can make a solar heater with a car radiator. All you need is a car radiator, a screwdriver, tack hammer, black spray paint, two rubber radiator pipes and two pipe fasteners. Once you have collected all the tools and gadgets you are ready to start your project.Radiator is the main component of your project therefore it is necessary for you to check it properly. Before you start make sure if it has been repaired, and does not leak. The radiator you will be using should also be properly flushed and pressurized. An unchecked or leaking radiator might not work properly and can cause problems later on.

Certain Advantages Of Biodiesel Fuel

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

Bio scientists have always been in search of finding and introducing fuels that can prove to be good substitute of traditional fuel items. The reason of all such efforts is quite obvious. First because the traditional fuel is not going to last forever as it is depleting rapidly. Secondly because there are so many environment issues associated to the usage of traditional fuels.

Biodiesel Fuel

Why biodiesel fuel is good

Despite of some of the disadvantages associated to the biodiesel fuel, its advantages are far greater. As bio scientists are continuously striving to make it more environment friendly, it has started showing results by reducing smoke pollution, noise pollution and by lessening the vibrations. Biodiesel is also better than gasoline when it is about keeping the engine fit and maintaining the acceleration. Biodiesel is a good fuel to be used in large means of transportation like ships.

We are all aware of the harmful effects of global warming, but there can be many ways to prevent global warming. Although we can’t prevent global warming completely, we can sure help to reduce the intensity of the future effects of global warming.

global warming Prevention

Here are some steps that we can take in our daily lives to prevent global warming effects.

  • Use transportation only for travelling to far off areas. Try walking for short journeys or using a bicycle more frequently.
  • Share transportation and do car-pooling whenever possible.
  • Drive in the correct gear to reduce fuel usage. Keep all windows shut on warm days if you have air conditioning to maximize fuel efficiency.
  • Consider purchasing a hybrid or electric vehicle when looking for a new car.
