Tags : 

Ford has been spotted testing vehicles that appear to be midcycle updates of the F-150 pickup and Mustang pony car. Both are expected to be launched for the 2018 model year.

Fuel Economy in Hot Weather

Tags : 

Hot weather can actually increase your fuel economy. Your engine warms up to an efficient temperature faster; summer grades of gasoline can have slightly more energy; and warm air causes less aerodynamic drag than cold air.

However, keeping passengers comfortable in hot weather by rolling down the windows or using the air conditioning (AC) can reduce fuel economy.

Running your car’s air conditioning is the main contributor to reduced fuel economy in hot weather. Its effect depends on a number of factors, such as the outside temperature, humidity, and intensity of the sun. Under very hot conditions, AC use can reduce a conventional vehicle’s fuel economy by more than 25%.1,2 The AC’s effect on hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and electric vehicles (EVs) can be even larger on a percentage basis.2

Driving with your windows down can also reduce fuel economy. Open windows increase aerodynamic drag (wind resistance), making your vehicle use more energy to push through the air. This effect is quite small at low speeds but increases at highway speeds.

Since we began using a Digital Vehicle Inspection, customer communication – and repair work authorizations – have moved into the fast lane. The response from customers after receiving color-coded digital inspections and detailed vehicle condition photos has been phenomenal.

The response I get back from people is unbelievable. They can actually see what we’re seeing. A picture is worth a thousand words. Even if your not buying everything, you can see it for yourself. In the days of simply telling customers what was wrong with their vehicles, customers may have wondered. This way, there’s no question.
