My Truck’s Air Horn Sounds Like A Train

sccWhat used to be infatuation of die cast trucks and cars as a kid, I now relate to my pickup truck. Prior to the late 1970’s or early 80’s, only trains and commercial emergency vehicles had air horns. They were not available for consumer purchase. Then truck air horns became scarcely available in one or two trumpet configurations. However, none of these horns were available with a compressor kit included. As demand and popularity grew, truck air horns became more readily available. That made guys like me sit up and take notice. But for me, those were the days of mini vans and vehicles with car seats and strollers, so I didn’t own a truck.

I’m in the future now and finally able to have a truck of my own.

Tips to Get Good Fuel Economy From Your Car

mkiYou should always make sure that you’re driving with optimal tyre pressure. Tyre pressure impacts fuel efficiency to a great extent. In case of reduced tyre pressure, there is increased contact between the road surface and the tyre. This results in friction and leads to greater consumption of fuel. Additionally, over inflating your tyres will definitely result in lower fuel consumption but this will compromise water dispersal ability on roads along with overall grip and handling. Keep your tyres inflated at the levels recommended by the car manufacturer and you will not have to worry about anything else. Check your tyres at least once every week in case you want to reduce fuel consumption.

Always use the accelerator, brake pedals and other driving controls respectfully and smoothly. Sudden, swift and rough acceleration and sudden braking will harm your car’s fuel economy figures in the long run. Always combine multiple short trips for lowering overall fuel consumption of your car. Every time you run the engine, your car will automatically require fuel. This is why frequent and short trips are best combined into one or

Should You Change Your Tyres For The Winter

e4You may have wondered, at some point, whether you should use a different set of tyres during the winter months. Does that mean that you would have to change your tyres each season? In some cases, it may be necessary to do so while in other cases you don’t have to do that. So should you change your tyres before winter starts?

If you live in an area that does not have extreme temperature fluctuations then it is not necessary to change the tyres. In the southern hemisphere, the temperatures for winter and summer do not change much (although the inhabitants may disagree), compared to that of the northern hemisphere. In the southern hemisphere winter months are similar to the summer months as temperatures don’t usually drop below 10 degrees Celsius during winter. The overall climate is quite warm. So the chances of snow and ice on the roads are practically non-existent. It would not be necessary for you to change your tyres for winter because your vehicle won’t be subject to iced roads.

If you live in an area that expects snow every winter

My Car Is Dead, What Do I Do With It?

y7As all too many people know, cars can just die on you sometimes for no apparent reason whatsoever.
