Vehicle Maintenance is important

Tags : 

Technician certification organization ASE surveys show a well-maintained vehicle not only lasts longer, it retains more of its resale value.

With a sluggish economic recovery and today’s consumers watching their finances carefully, it’s no surprise that the average age of vehicles in the United States is more than 11 years old, according to automotive research firm R.L. Polk and Co. With motorists holding on to their vehicles longer than ever before, maintenance takes an even greater importance in keeping roads — and people — safe.

The True Cost of Cheap Gas

Tags : 

doylestown auto repairPresident Obama graciously thanked himself for cheap gasoline at a rally in Philadelphia for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday.

To hear him tell it, “Let’s face it; Republicans don’t like to hear good news right now.” And while cheap fuel is indeed something that millions of households and businesses are happy about, including Republicans, many would doubt that Obama is to thank. Meanwhile, businesses in the oil and gas sector and those employed (or unemployed, as the case may be) in the oil and gas sector, along with those in the real estate sector and others who have been struck by low oil prices, may be less than thankful, regardless of their politics.

Crazy Gas Prices

Tags : 

Summer gasoline prices across the nation have dropped to their lowest mark since 2004. AAA says the “best news” is that many motorists are once again paying less than $2 a gallon.

When NOT to roll down your car windows

Tags : 

When cruising the open road, by all means roll down your windows and feel the breeze. But when driving in cities or crawling in heavy highway traffic, keep them shut—and turn off your AC or heater, too. Do this, and you’ll slash the amount of toxic particles pouring into your car by a whopping 76 percent.

Thank researchers at the University of Surrey in England for this lung- and heart-saving tip. “Vehicles emit a number of gaseous pollutants, as well as particles of various sizes,” says lead investigator Prashant Kumar. “All of these are known to harm human health, including increasing risk of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases.” In fact, the World Health Organization has placed outdoor air pollution among its top 10 risks faced by humans, believing it to be linked to 7 million premature deaths every year.

Why some Gas Stations Charge Crazy Prices

Tags : 

Summer gasoline prices across the nation have dropped to their lowest mark since 2004. AAA says the “best news” is that many motorists are once again paying less than $2 a gallon.

But don’t expect any bargains soon at the Lukoil on Ridge Pike at Chemical Road in Conshohocken, where the price for regular was stubbornly stuck at $2.999 a gallon recently.

“Are you saying it should be priced lower?” asked Tom Hutchinson, the dealer-franchisee. He refers disgruntled consumers to a toll-free Lukoil customer service number posted on the window of the convenience store.

Will using regular gas void my warranty if my car manufacturer recommends premium gas?

Tags : 

Using regular gas in an engine that requires premium could void your warranty. That is most likely to happen if using regular causes severe engine knock or pinging (premature ignition of the fuel, also known as detonation) that damages the pistons or other engine parts.

Is Premium Gas worth the extra money?

Tags : 

The only guaranteed result of using premium gas in an engine designed for regular is that you will spend more money. As far as any tangible benefits, the chances are slim to none.

If your engine runs fine on regular, filling it with premium is unlikely to boost acceleration or fuel economy by more than insignificant amounts. No matter what you’ve heard, premium won’t do more to clean deposits from your fuel injectors or other parts of the fuel system because today’s regular gas contains the same detergent additives.
