Using the Right Engine Oil for Your Car

Using the Right Engine Oil for Your Car

Modern cars are very understandably a whole lot more complex than what we grew up with through advancements in technology and environmental awareness. Fuel efficiencies have become the more important bi-product of engine design, along with the ever-growing mandates for cleaner emissions. There are many different motors on today's roads, cloaked underneath sleek bodies, carrying platforms of variable sizes and purposes and the people they transport from place to place. To keep these motors running, many oil types exist as well, and most 21st century cars have been developed with specific-to-the motor lubricants. This means that it is crucial to understand which engine oil is applicable on your vehicle, and if you are having a hard time figuring out what you should put in yours, we're more than willing to guide you! Expanding on the "different motor oil types", it is very important to know (especially when you're c ... read more

Educating Fuel Station Selection

Educating Fuel Station Selection

The Environmental Protection Agency has introduced a variety of new additives to our fuels over the past few decades in corroboration with their Clean Air Act. Some of these chemicals are ok, but some can be harmful to our engines. Many automotive enthusiasts understand the impact ethanol has on both classic and modern engines; but this impact especially affects some of the newer high performance engines that require higher fuel pressures and cleaner burning fuel. Environmentalists and automotive engineers are constantly working at ways to reduce carbon emissions, but it is unlikely that anyone will ever develop a fossil-fuel related system where hydrocarbons can be fully cleaned or recycled in a responsible manner. In short, all the carbon has to go somewhere. If you have a direct-injection motor (TFSI, GDI, etc.), the effect of ethanol is even more severe than standard fuel injected motors. Heavy carbon buildup and the subsequent suffocation of your vehicle's air intake and fue ... read more
