Ethanol Car Engines Work

Ethanol Cars

Vehicles that retain an internal combustion engine that is specifically designed to operate on more than one kind of fuel are referred to as dual-fuel vehicles. Informally, these vehicles are referred to as flexible-fuel vehicles or FFV. This simply means these cars or trucks have the capability to operate on alternative fuels other than gasoline; or they run off of a combined fuel such as the modern-day blended gasoline mentioned before.

Dual-fuel vehicles operate very similar to standard automobiles that use gasoline. Ethanol is injected into engines just the same as gasoline is injected into standard non-hybrid vehicles. Even though bioethanol delivers slightly less gas mileage, its eco-friendly benefits make it a viable option for drivers. For example, when ethyl fuel is burned, it produces less harmful emissions and air pollution than standard gasoline. This advantage alone makes it worthwhile. Also, ethanol generally costs less than standard fuel or gasoline; making hybrid vehicles a cheaper option in comparison to standard automobiles on the market today. The similarities between the two engines makes

Eco Friendly Vehicles Tricks

Keep Your Car as Long as Possible

It’s tempting to trade in your vehicle for a newer model, or buy a new ride after a great job promotion, but keeping your current vehicle for as long as you can is actually the more eco-friendly practice. Having less cars means less toxic emissions and so forth. Keep your inventory of vehicles as low as possible, for as long as you can.

Properly Dispose Old Auto Parts

Car batteries that can be recycled must be recycled properly, and those that are not must be safely disposed of. Proper disposal for other car parts is important too, including old tires, motor oil, car fluids, and more. Metal auto parts can be recycled for cash at your local scrap metal yard or junkyard. All of these practices will instantly help the environment.

Don’t Skip Scheduled Car Maintenance

Factory scheduled car maintenance is vital to the overall performance, safety, and longevity of every vehicle. And it also helps with the budget since it prevents costly breakdowns and repairs. Scheduled

Information of Future Fuels

Bio-fuels:

The energy of bio-fuels is derived from biological carbon fixation. These fuels can be derived from biomass conversion, solid biomass, liquid fuels etc. Based on the source from which they are derived there are a variety of bio-fuels. Two popular forms are bio-diesel (alternative to diesel) and bio-ethanol (alternative to petrol).

Bio-diesel is made by extracting and purifying plant seed oil to substitute regular diesel and made available to diesel engines. The most widely recognized bio-ethanol is the fermented extracts of corn or sugarcane. The natural ethanol thus extracted acts as alternative to petrol and can run on any petrol powered vehicles.

Bio-fuels are inexhaustible energy sources, as they are extracted from plants produce. Automobile engines do not require major changes to run with bio-fuels. Since their origin is natural, they are considered sustainable and environment friendly. They help reduce dependency on import of crude petrol. They produce less emissions, thus, contribute to efforts for lowering global warming issues.

The possible disadvantages from bio-fuels are – there is an increased competition between bio-fuel crops and food crops,

Motor Oil and Hybrid Vehicle

Synthetic

Hybrid automotive experts also feel that synthetic motor oil works better in hybrid autos than typical petroleum-based products. This is because it is much thinner than the natural alternative, and many mechanics are even starting to recommend its use in regular vehicles. The only real downside to using synthetic lubricant is that it can be more expensive than petroleum-based.

When the Motor Oil Should Be Changed

Motor oil changes are not needed as frequently with hybrid cars since the engine runs less during city driving with its low speed and stop-and-go movement. However, the lubricant does still require changing, and you should always use premium products. As stated previously, be sure to use the correct weight so you will not damage the top-end of your engine. Because hybrid autos shut down and restart their engines much more often than other vehicles, choosing the right lubricant is even more important to the long-term health of the engine.

There is an oil life indicator on the dashboard of each hybrid car that displays the percentage of oil life currently left. The range runs from 0 to 100%. Most hybrid service departments will recommend that the

Steps Build Basic Bicycle Generator

Acquire a Motor – The first step is to acquire a DC motor for bicycle generator. This can be acquired from an old computer or printer. Motors are present in almost every electronic item. You can even go online and buy a new motor at an affordable price. Once you have acquired or bought a motor, you need to take off o-rings and plastic gears.

Mount the Motor – The next step is to mount the motor onto the back tire of the bicycle. This will allow the tire to turn the shaft of the motor. You will also need to put a sort of disc to the arm of this motor. This will allow it to touch the tire. It is always better to use big rubber discs as they provide good friction. The turning will cause voltage to easily come across the leads on this motor.

Basic Procedure for A Stationary Bicycle – First, let us talk about a stationary bicycle. If you are trying to build a stationary bicycle generator, you will have to build a stand too. This will make sure that your back tire is elevated. You should use a multimeter

Alternative Fuel Cars

Above you can see obvious reasons why diesel engines are not healthy for the environment, or for your wallet. However, two different types of engines for cars are currently available on the market, and ready to be used by citizens all over the country. You have probably heard of a “hybrid” car by now, which is a car that uses an engine that utilizes both oil and electricity in order to power the car. It also uses a smaller engine with lighter parts, so that that engine does not have to work as hard in order to move the car. The electric motor helps to power the car, thus allowing the engine to work less hard and waste less gas. Also, the energy used when you brake is recycled and put into the battery in a hybrid car.

In an electric car, there is an absence of an engine altogether. The engine is replaced by an electric motor, much like the one in a hybrid car. This electric motor is powered by a set of rechargeable batteries, so it removes the need for oil completely. This is obviously a plus, since the car will not emit dangerous

Water Powered Cars

Did you know that water can be used to power cars? It’s true. The German BMW auto makers have already produced the world’s first hydrogen powered car. However, they only produced 100 of them. Can you imagine if they build more and these cars were on the road?

This initial model car is called the BMW Hydrogen 7, and uses the body of the 760i model. When you pop the hood on this car you will immediately notice it is different than a gas powered car. Under this hood are a gas and a hydrogen system.

The hydrogen power allows the car to travel 4.7 miles on a gallon of water. In the future these figures will more than double. For now, we still need duel engine cars because we refuse to completely give up our gas powered vehicles.

The greatest challenge in using water as a green energy source is in the engine. Hydrogen combustion engines are still in their infancy. The technology for such engines is less than 10 years old and still growing. Who knows where the future will take us.

In order to prevent evaporation, large 30-gallon, bi-layered and highly

Electric Automotive Challenges

End of Life Battery Disposal: Where do all these batteries go with chemicals that are not so good for environment? Proponents say; it’s not that big of deal. Still, if old cell phones are considered hazardous waste partly due to the batteries inside, then car batteries which are much bigger with huge amounts of material are even more problematic.

Slow Growth: Currently electric vehicles make us such a small percentage of the total, that they are not making any real difference in the use of fossil fuels, so if that is the goal, it will take decades to achieve and need massive government intervention – hasn’t government intervened in the free-markets enough lately (Healthcare, Biofuels for instance) and how has that worked out for us?

Electric Automotive Rebates: When government gives rebates we all end up paying for it in higher taxes. If EVs cost on average $10,000 more, and we give rebates, we are subsidizing a sector over another sector, picking and choosing winners. It’s wiser to allow EV industry to pony up and find ways to lower prices to compete.

Electric Automotive Are Quiet: Proponents say that’s a good thing. But, tell that

Get Advantages Driving a Hybrid

Tax credits. Hybrid vehicles are no doubt more expensive than conventional automobiles and this is why the government issues tax credits to people who buy hybrid vehicles. There are many resources on the internet related to tax credits for hybrid vehicles that are out dated and the easiest way to verify if a vehicle is eligible or not is to go directly to the IRS website.

Reduces carbon footprint. If your environmentally conscious this is what you have waited for! Not only do you have a fuel-efficient gasoline engine but your vehicle can get you where you need to go with zero tailpipe emissions which im sure your aware of means less greenhouse gases being created.

Less money spent on fuel. Sure you can argue that number this is a repeat of number one but seriously the biggest benefit of owning a hybrid is that they use less fuel. Cost vs benefit calculators that allow buyers to get a better grasp on just how long it would take to see any real savings and the answer is the second you start driving a hybrid your fuel expense will decrease.

Info of Biodiesel

Biodiesel can be used in trucks as an alternative to diesel fuel. It is able to power the vehicle in a similar way as every day diesel does. However, whereas standard diesel emits much toxic fumes, biodiesel is less harmful to the environment because it is a resource that stems from nature originally.

If you have a restaurant or food establishment that discards of a lot of used oil, it is worth considering the used oil collector route. This will also strengthen your customer base because your restaurant will be helping the environment in finding alternative fuel solutions. Many people are very careful in how they affect the environment and how they can lower their carbon footprint. So if they know that your business ethically disposes your used oil and that the oil is used in the manufacture of biodiesel, they will support you more.

Biodiesel is a great alternative to diesel and it is a benefit to everyone involved in the process. Next time, think twice about how you discard your used oil.

Use Car Can Be Greener Than Hybrids

Hybrids

Many people look at the environmental crisis and are driven to buy a hybrid. These autos require less gasoline to operate because they also utilize electric batteries. However, most of them take an enormous amount of energy to build – on some estimates, in the neighborhood of one hundred million BTUs of energy, about the same as one thousand gallons of gasoline. That means that every new hybrid on the market has already driven the equivalent of nearly 50,000 miles or more, when you compare BTU usage.

Additionally, hybrids cause some serious problems when it comes to emissions. These vehicles run off of two engines, which raises production costs through the roof in terms of air quality. Plus, electric batteries are filled with dangerous chemicals, many of which are strip-mined in areas with less stringent environmental policies than the United States, a classic example of shifting-the-burden. It is estimated that many hybrids actually leave the environment worse off due to the material cost of transporting heavy batteries across the ocean on tankers. And, while plug-in autos sound like a good idea, the electricity used to power them comes from a coal plant, which can cause

Biodiesel and Sunflower Oil

Biodiesel is made from used sunflower oil. Many restaurants and cafes use sunflower oil in bulk. They could use hundreds of litres of this sunflower oil in a day. Thus disposing of it is a mission for these restaurants. It is legally required that they dispose of it in an ethical and healthy manner. Biodiesel producers have identified this market and have thus turned this wasteful used sunflower oil into a valuable resource.

The biodiesel producers collect the used sunflower oil from the various restaurants and take it back to their factory where they convert the oil into a usable fuel resource that you can use in your truck. This is a great resource for truck fleet owners. You could purchase biodiesel in bulk at a low cost and power your fleet of trucks for long time.

So now you have a better idea of biodiesel is and what is made of. You can easily use in your diesel powered truck and save a lot of money while you’re at it. Be sure to buy in bulk so that you have enough biodiesel. This is also great way of saving as you can keep stock of it

Achieve Maximum Fuel Efficiency for Car

  • Drive smoothly: Driving like a racer will consume much fuel. Aggressive acceleration and applying sudden brakes will affect the fuel efficiency, and the parts of your car engine. Therefore, make sure to accelerate gently and not suddenly. This will save up to 60% of the fuel.
  • Use gears sensibly: Some people do not use gears properly and don’t change the gear at proper speed even after knowing when to change. Changing the gear correctly will help save a lot of fuel. You can save up to 15% of the fuel by using brakes and gears properly.
  • Tires: Maintain proper tire pressure. Check regularly the pressure of your tire, or at least once in two weeks. For appropriate pressure, check the owner’s manual. Proper pressure maintenance will give up to 3% of fuel economy. If the pressure is not right, it will lead to excess fuel consumption, and the tires will wear out quickly.
  • Speed limit: Driving at a reasonable speed will give a good mileage. Check your car’s mileage and see when it is giving good mileage and drive within that limit. If you maintain a speed limit between 70 mph and 80 mph you will save up to

Electric vs Traditional Car

The consequences of all the air pollutants does not come at no risk. The large amount of carbon dioxide emitted every year is what experts believe is the cause of global warming. The warming can endanger our health and can cause extreme weather such as higher sea levels due to flooding and droughts. Because oil is a non-renewable resource, it will only become more difficult to obtain, which will make the burning of gasoline even worse.

With all the seemingly negative effects of traditional car engines, there are some positives. Engines that run on gas will travel much further than an electric engine. All electric cars will only travel up to 100 miles on a full charge before needing to be plugged in again. If a consumer is not near somewhere they can charge, this can be a cause for concern to the individual. Charging stations have not become a commodity that is everywhere yet. Also, the price for a car with a combustion engine will be priced lower than that of a pure hybrid vehicle. The average price to buy the hybrid car brand new can reach up to $30,000, but a regular midsize sedan has

About Electric Automotive Connectors

Electric vehicles are a type of automobile that uses one or more electric motors or traction motors for propulsion. Unlike gas-powered cars, they are fueled by electricity, which can come from a variety of sources (fossil fuels and nuclear power, but also renewable sources like tidal, solar, and wind power). They require less maintenance because they don’t have as many parts as traditional vehicles, and they offer tax benefits. Electric vehicles are also easy to charge at home, run on renewable energy, and emit no pollution from their tailpipes. There are many benefits to owning an electric car, but like most things, they come with disadvantages too. Electric vehicles can take several hours to charge and aren’t able to last on long road trips. They will also increase the demand for electricity and there are very few models currently available.

Charging up an electric vehicle is easy, but it will require some patience. The most convenient (but also expensive) option would be to purchase a charging station for home use. If you charge your car overnight, it will always be ready for the morning commute.

To make the process of charging an electric car more convenient,

About Future of Electric Cars

These vehicles are already in the market already but in selected countries in the world. The real realization of more cars in our streets is expected to be in early 2018. Companies such as General Motors is said to be preparing to release their Chevrolet EV within weeks from now. Nissan is also said to have gearing closer to releasing their EV before 2020.

Volkswagen showcased their electronic car model which they are calling it e-Golf I.D recently in an exhibition in France. It is one of the first one to be produced by their group- Modular Electric Drive Kit (MEB) that deals specifically electric cars. They are set to release it in 2020 with its reproduction set to begin in 2025.

It is expected to have a 400-600km of range. The I.D electric motor is expected to be placed in the back of the car. This will allow the front while to have a lighter turning circle. The I.D will also have a pilot mode. This means that the car will have an option for self-drive. This will give the driver time to chat with passengers or do other stuff.

Its horsepower will be

Installations Car Charging Stations

An electrician experienced with car-charging stations is of paramount importance for this project. The electrician can offer advice about household amperage needed to support the system, circuit breakers to purchase, and installation location for optimal convenience and reasonable installation costs. It’s also common to make upgrades to a home’s electrical wiring to handle the increased load from the electric automobile.

You may need to get a special permit to operate certain charging apparatus at your home. To apply for a permit, submit documentation to your local municipality for review. You may need to visit the office in person, or you might be able to apply for the permit online. Expect to pay a fee for the permit. It’s also likely that the local municipality performs inspections of all car-charging stations within its jurisdiction. Once you have your equipment installed, schedule the inspection. A building inspector will check the location of the installation, any upgrades you have made to your electrical system, and any modifications you have made to the structure of your garage. As long as the equipment and modifications fall within local codes, you should receive your permit without problem.

Turbo Wastegate Works

1) Burn more fuel

2) Make more power

3) Make more exhaust to drive the turbine

If left unchecked, the cycle repeats 1,2,3 1,2,3 1,2,3 until BOOM! Your engine self-destructs. Not the most effective arrangement, so we want a solution to keep your power from climbing, unchecked. Enter the wastegate. The wastegate is actually a valve (literally, a “gate”) that permits a lot of the exhaust gas (waste) to bypass the turbine. Now we can add a fourth step:

4) The wastegate opens, allowing the turbine to slow, and the boost pressure (and by extension, the power) to fall. The cycle then repeats.Linked to the wastegate itself, is a wastegate actuator. This is just a spring loaded diaphragm that holds the wastegate closed, until some boost pressure is reached. As soon as the boost pressure is sufficient overcome the spring pressure, the wastegate is opened and the boost pressure falls. The cycle will repeat, if there’s sufficient exhaust pressure and boost (I.e., when you keep your foot in it).

Automatic Transmission

Automatic transmission parts rapidly becoming affordable

Up until the recent past, using or replacing its parts used to cost very high for customers, which thereby even discouraged many to use vehicles with the technology at all. However, the emergence of companies, which produce a large variety of its parts at affordable prices have ensured that the production cost and market price of automatic transmissions are now entering within the general affordable reach. With the entry of several third party manufacturers from Korea and China that are producing several parts in bulk at much lower rates, its parts are set to become even more affordable in the near future.

New developments that improve productivity

Several auto experts and magazines even today point out that it isn’t fuel efficient or powerful enough compared to manual transmissions. However, new smart technologies that integrate automatic transmission with state-of-the-art software have ensured that several new models using reliable parts can provide better performance and fuel efficiency compared to manual systems. It can be argued that the recent evolution of automatic transmission have ensured that it is a safer, better performing and a more economical alternative than manual ones.
