Hybrid cars with 250 mpg fuel mileage
Is it possible to have 250-mpg mileage with hybrid cars? Yes, Bellevue auto visionaries’ thinks so. The people owning Toyota Prius and Honda hybrid cars are eyeing for an mpg of 40 to 50 then how a automaker claims to have technology that can give this high mileage. What technology they are using? Let us try to look at answers of these questions.
20 member team at AFS Trinity Power Corp claims to make this possible with their plug in hybrid car. On technology front, they are going to use flywheel to create and store power. Conventional cars use gasoline engine to power vehicle whereas hybrid cars use gasoline engine with battery support. However, claimed car will use gasoline engine, battery source with flywheel or a capacitor. The power load is shifted among these sources according to requirement.
The flywheel will help car in two ways i.e firstly it will help car in time of acceleration and secondly it will absorb power which is being wasted while braking. It will also help car to use lesser number and lighter batteries. This will collectively help to reduce overall weight of car. Flywheel or capacitor is said to absorb power efficiently and quickly.
Alloy Wheel Repair: Depends on Extent of Damage to Alloy WheelsWritten by Tim Gowens
Alloy wheels can make a big difference in a car or motorcycle, with improved handling and a beautiful appearance. Because of this, enthusiasts have been upgrading to larger wheels for years, replacing basic steel wheels and hubcaps to set a vehicle apart from others and to provide a smoother ride. To capitalize on this trend, manufacturers have begun to change their styling to appeal to consumer demand for larger and flashier wheels, equipping even everyday vehicles like SUVs, compact cars, vans and motorcycles with larger-diameter alloy wheels. While they look great, alloy wheels present a problem. Wheels from European manufacturers like Volvo, as well as 2- and 3-piece wheels, like BBS, tend to be soft and are more easily damaged. When they are damaged – bent or curbed, among other potential issues – do you need to completely replace them? Replacing your wheels – through a dealer or local performance wheel shop – can cost hundreds of dollars and take days, depending on severity of damage. Repair vs. Replace Necessity, they say, is mother of invention. Because replacing a factory wheel can range from $350 to $2,000 per wheel (for some Porsche wheels), those who didn’t want to invest in wheel replacement from a dealer began asking about having them “bent” back out – and wheel rim repair industry was born. So long as safety isn’t an issue (that is, when a wheel can be repaired by a professional technician without jeopardizing lives of passengers relying on wheel to do its job), then alloy wheel repair is an excellent choice for economy and cosmetic restoration.
