Are You Giving Gas Back To The Gas Station?You May Be Paying For Gas, And Leaving It Behind.That's right; you could be losing a fortune by trying to get that extra bit in because it is pennies cheaper at this gas station.If you try to overfill your gas tank by squeezing that extra bit of gas in after the pump has clicked off it could be going back into their tanks.Let me explain.The fuel pump at the gas station has a venting system which takes the fumes out of the air as you fill up you tank. If this did not happen you would get a face full of noxious fumes every time you fill up.If you try to get more in after the pump has clicked off, it may suck some of the fuel into the venting system instead and back into their tank.Also, when you put the gas in your tank it is coming from buried storage tanks and is colder than if it was stored above ground. What this means is that as the gas warms up to the temperature of the day it expands.If you overfill you tank and then park your car up, the fuel may go into the cars fuel tank breather system and cause unknown damage or even leak from the breather onto the floor. Now along with the wasted fuel you also have a fire hazard. (Is you insurance up to date?)For you pocket and you safety I recommend that you stop filling when the gas pump clicks.If you are going away on holiday, or business, early in the morning and think it would be quicker to fill up the night before it may be wise to think again. There are many 24 hour gas stations.As fuel is sold by volume it will be colder, early in the morning and as the day gets warmer it expands and you get less for your money.It will only take minutes to fill up in the morning and gives you enough time to remember things you forgot to pack (where's the kids?) before travelling to far.If you are driving for a long distance it would be a good idea to use your cruise control as often as possible. A smoother speed will be more economical.What about all the clutter in your car. It all adds weight and means more gas used. If you need to carry a full toolkit around in your trunk then it is time to think about replacing your car. Clear out the stuff you don't need (Compact discs, half empty pop bottles, Kylie tapes, those old papers you were going to take to recycling). A tidy car makes you feel good too.More........... https://paydotcom.com/r/15410/johnbeck/1148255/When you are driving does your steering wheel pull to one side or the other. The wheel alignment may need checking. If the alignment is out it will cause the tires to drag on the road and you will use more gas.Also the tires will wear out extremely fast, usually on one side. The handling of the vehicle will also be affected.So for safety and economy get your alignment checked regularly.For more tips I recommend you see this e-book.https://paydotcom.com/r/15410/johnbeck/1148255/
This could be the most talked about maneuver amongst new drivers and their biggest fear, when it comes to driving. I have heard of stories how drivers elect to park one or two blocks away to avoid parking between two cars.The most important thing to consider when attempting a park between two vehicles is safety first.Approaching a vehicle ahead of you, parked on the side of the roadway should be done and planned well in advance. The beginning of the maneuver should start far enough back. If the roadway is wide enough, check youre mirrors, touch youre brake pedal to warn other drivers that you are slowing down and stopping. Signal to the right, assuming we are parking on the right. Check youre right shoulder, keeping the steering wheel straight. Once everything is safe, gradually move over, and drive in a straight line alongside the vehicles youre planning to park between. Do not attempt to move in at the last minute, towards the vehicle. You should be planning this far enough back to swing in sooner, so you will be going straight along side the vehicle, as you approach the vehicle in front of you. You should have a minimum of a couple of feet clearance.As you pull along side the spot that you are attempting to park, pause, and make a decision on the size of area. This decision should only take a couple of seconds. Is it big enough for youre vehicle? You should have a few feet extra on both ends of the car. You have to leave enough room for other drivers that may attempt to back up, if they have to clear the vehicle in front of their car, to get out. Once you have made the decision that the area that you are going to park is big enough. Continue straight ahead, and stop, when you are parallel to the vehicle you are going to park behind, and change gears to reverse.Look out the back passenger window and check if you can see the tail end corner of the vehicle, you are parking beside. If you can see it, this is youre turning point. If not, check youre left shoulder for pedestrians. You shouldnt have to worry about traffic at this point. Youre front end is not swinging out. Only when it is safe, roll straight back, looking out the back passenger window, and stop when it comes into view. By doing this, youre vehicle front end should clear the car in front of you, but you still have to check to make sure, when you swing in. It will not work if youre only a couple inches away from vehicle youre beside. You need to be two or three feet away.Now is the time to make the maneuver into the parking spot. First we have to do some safety procedures. Check youre mirrors for vehicles and cyclist coming up behind you. Check youre blind spot just in case there is someone coming across, from youre left side. If youre back end is going to swing into the parking spot, the front end is going to swing out, further into the roadway.Once the safety checks are all done, and you can see the tail end of the vehicle beside you. Move in slowly with youre foot covering the brake only to ease up to get the vehicle rolling, and pushing down to slow the vehicle. Use the gas pedal only to get it rolling if you have to, but make sure you are covering the brake during the majority of this maneuver. You should be looking out the back window and watch the curb of the sidewalk slowly disappear along the tail end of youre vehicle. Itll slowly disappear from the left side to the right side. Once you think you cannot see it on the back corner of youre side, behind you, pause and gradually turn the wheel the other way. The faster it disappears, the faster you have to turn the steering wheel. Once it is all gone along the tail end and corner of vehicle, the steering wheel should be turned all the way the other way at this point, before you roll back any further. Make sure you glance forward as youre front end swings in to make sure the front end of youre vehicle is clear of the vehicle in front of you. Once you know the front is clear, continue to look back until the vehicle is stopped.Change gears and move forward with youre foot on the brake, keeping in mind, the wheels of the car is turned out towards the roadway. Straighten the front end of the vehicle and the wheels of youre vehicle. If you are not sure of the direction of where the wheels are turned, slowly release the brake and watch your front end roll and correct accordingly. (Check driving manual for wheel alignment when parking on a hill.)This driving technique has worked for my students in the past, and I still use it. Vehicles have changed over the years, and it is harder to see the back end of the vehicle. Please consult with a family member, and or recognized driving school for further instructions on parallel parking.

When needing a replacement part for you car, where do you shop? Like many motorists you may head down to the big box retailer for all of your needs. A good choice both for value and for selection. Still, mostly any retailer is limited as to what they can stock. This especially holds true if you drive a rare or uncommon vehicle. Try finding a window regulator for your 69 Torino at the parts store; theyll get it for you but it will have to be back ordered. So, where should you shop? Thats up to you, but lets goes over the options that you have.The Salvage Yard. Lets admit it: there isnt anything wrong with going to the junkyard to find the part you need. My 78 VW Rabbits window handle broke and I snagged one off of a junker for just a few bucks. Still, if you are looking for a radiator, engine, exhaust stuff, or anything else that actually runs, you risk that the part will fail soon after you place it in your car. Naturally, the price you pay through the junkyard should be the lowest price going.Your Dealer. On the other side of the spectrum is your car dealer. If they dont have it in stock, they can get if for you. Service with a smile and a price that will make you frown! Yes, you will pay dearly for some parts, as middleman mark ups kick in.Your Retail Store. Retail auto supply chains typically have the broadest selection and the lowest prices of any of the brick and mortar retailers. Your best option for a good buy is when something is on sale; stock items will cost you the prevailing retail rate, but that is the price you pay for convenience. Overhead [buildings, labor] is high even with most national retailers.Shop Online. Wholesale providers of automobile replacement parts and accessories are springing up all over the internet. Some stores are good, some are not. What to look for: available customer service agents; a toll free number where you can call someone to talk with directly; a store that never closes and has a secured payment site; and clearly understood shipment, payment, and return policies. Generally, an online retailer should be a great option as low overhead and purchasing directly from the manufacturer is what sets these wholesalers apart from the rest. Still, do your homework and make sure that the site is what it says it is.One special warning: the growth of the counterfeit parts industry is causing fits for retailers and consumers. If you suspect that you have purchased a bogus part, return it to the retailer for a full return. One more good reason to learn what a companys return policy is before you do business with them.In all, shopping for parts is easier today, thanks to the internet. From the ease of your computer you can compare prices, service, shipping options, warranties, and more. The consumer is the winner and retailers are keeping prices low in order to bring in additional business.
Forklifts are industrial vehicles made to take the place of manual lifting and manual work. There are two forks or arms located at the front of the vehicle that are used to lift, lower, stack and unstack heavy loads. The loads are usually stacked on top of wooden pallets that the arms or forks fit into to bring a large quantity of things up or down at once. The drivers cause almost 50% of accidents involving forklifts. Normally, the driver has hit a pedestrian. Therefore, forklifts and people should not be in the vicinity of each other. Some other forklift related accidents include: Forklift tipping over and overturning Collision with other vehicles or stationary objects Part of the operator's body leaning out of the cabin and hitting an object The load falling off the pallets There are things that can be done by the employee to reduce the number of forklift accidents. First, the driver should always perform a pre-safety check of the vehicle before operating. Once the driver sees that all is in tact, while driving the vehicle the driver should use safe handling procedures of the load. This includes paying close attention to the load limit of each particular forklift. Since forklifts are a gas-powered vehicle, gasoline limits and storage should be carefully observed. In addition to safe fuel use, the battery also needs to be handled and cared for properly to ensure safety.Here are a few safety procedures that should be followed by all employees. Some of them may seem like common sense, but they are so important that they are in need of repeating. Passengers on forklifts to be strictly forbidden, unless there is a separate seat provided with a restraint Other people kept clear when forklift is operating Operator should take care when moving between artificial and natural light Load made secure and lowered to safe centre of gravity before carrying Sudden stops and starts are to be avoided No part of the operator's body to protrude beyond the overhead protection Ramps not to be used unless the forklift operator is trained in their use Operator to remain seated and secured at all times Forklift to operate within a designated area, separate from pedestrians Operator to remain in the cabin when a forklift overturns Most importantly: PEOPLE SHOULD NEVER BE RAISED ON THE FORKLIFT OR THE PALLETS IF THERE IS NO OTHER WAY TO LIFT A WORKER, A PROPER WORK PLATFORM MUST BE USED In addition to checking the vehicle daily for safety hazards, the workplace should also be checked for the following: Power-lines Blind corners Pedestrian areas Low doorways Uneven floors Ramps Overhead pipes and fittings Confined spaces Adequate lighting Noise Above all else, a training coarse must be completed before attempting to drive or operate a forklift. Besides formal instruction, the training must include practical training (such as demonstrations) and an evaluation of the operator in the workplace to assure that he can operate the forklift safely. Initial training content must consist of both truck-related topics and workplace-related topics. Some truck-related topics include:operating instructions, warnings and precautions specific to the trucks the employee will be authorized to operate differences between the truck and the automobile truck controls and instrumentation engine or motor operation steering and maneuvering visibility fork and attachment adaptation, operation and use limitations; vehicle capacity vehicle stability any vehicle inspection and maintenance that the operator must perform; refueling and/or charging and recharging of batteries operating limitations any other information from the forklift operator's manual. Some workplace related topics include: surface conditions where the vehicle will be operated composition of loads and load stability load manipulation, stacking and unstacking pedestrian traffic narrow aisles and other restricted places where the vehicle will be operated any hazardous (classified) locations, such as flammable storage areas, where the vehicle will be operated ramps and other sloped surfaces; closed environments and other areas where insufficient ventilation or poor vehicle maintenance could cause a buildup of carbon monoxide or diesel exhaust; and other unique or potentially hazardous environmental conditions in the workplace.
