Chocolate-fuel cars

Otomagz - Alternative fuels that environmentally friendly, could be from any material that may be even totally unthinkable before. Vegetable-fueled car, you probably already accustomed to hear. But what about the chocolate-fueled car?

If in Indonesia, we had introduced 'jelantah' or used cooking oil as car fuel, in London, UK scientists using chocolate as fuel.

Don't think that's used from chocolate bar, because the price of chocolate bars can be exorbitant. They use the brown waste from factories that had been discarded as a vegetable oil mixed with biofuel.

Not only the fuel that is environmentally friendly, the car is also made from plant fibers are non-toxic. For example, the tire is made of fiber carrot and roots, the seat of a mixture of linseed and soybean oil foam. Its body was of plant fibers.

Speed speed no less with the car in general. At this time a new test at excess speed 96 miles per hour, but when tested on a path expected to penetrate belapan speed 232 kilometers per hour. The car named "WorldFirst Formula 3 racing" car that was to be used in the European Grand Prix races and Britain's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

This project leader, James Meredith, said that this car is proof that the car produces a fast, efficient and environmentally friendly is no longer impossible.

The Three Things to Check When Your Car Won't Start

OtoMagz - When you turn your key in the ignition and your car won't start, a feeling of dread shoots through your mind. After all, there are dozens of things that might prevent your engine from turning over. Identifying the problem can easily become a frustrating mystery. In order to effectively troubleshoot the issue, you'll need to have a basic understanding with regard to what happens between your ignition and the motor. There are a lot of parts along the line and any one of them can cause a glitch.

In this article, I'll provide a short list of three things you should check when your engine fails to roar to life.

1 - Battery
Most non-starting problems are caused by the battery. Sometimes, the poles become corroded and the connection suffers. Other times, the battery drains to the point at which it doesn't carry a sufficient charge to turn the engine. In some cases, it dies completely.

If you notice corrosion on the poles, use a battery cleaner to remove it. If, after cleaning the poles, you're still unable to turn the motor, it's likely that your battery is drained or dead. Unless you have a tester with which to gauge the amperage, jump start your vehicle. You can be reasonably confident that if it starts immediately, you need a new battery.

2 - Ignition Switch

Bad ignition switches don't happen nearly as often as dead batteries, but they do malfunction and they're easy to check. To be certain that your switch is working properly, turn your key so that your car is "on" (as opposed to the "starting" position). Then, look at your dashboard. If your ignition switch is working, you'll see warning indicators appear on the dash. This is normal. Now, turn the key further (to "start"). The warning indicators should disappear.

You can also test the switch by turning your headlights on prior to starting your vehicle. If, when you try to crank the engine, the lamps do not dim, your switch is bad.

3 - Starter Connection

You won't be able to easily test whether your starter is working properly, but you can test the connection. In the same way that batteries can accumulate corrosion, so too, can your vehicle's starter. When this happens, it reduces the integrity of the connection and can prevent your motor from cranking. If there is no corrosion, but you still suspect that your starter is causing the issue, you can use a circuit tester to test the connection.

Cars, trucks, and SUVs continue to leave us stranded due to faulty connections or failing parts. The good news is that your vehicle isn't as mysterious as you might think. While there are many components under the hood that can prevent your engine from turning over, most problems are associated with the battery, ignition switch, and starter. Armed with a circuit tester, jumper cables, and a friend, you'll often be able to fix the problem without taking your car to a repair shop.

Mitsubishi Concept PX-MiEV, Preview

OtoMagz - Mitsubishi is previewing its next-generation CUV in the Land of the Rising Sun next month, and like nearly every other concept bound for the Tokyo Motor Show, the Mitsubishi PX-MiEV is packing a number of hybrid technologies to maximize fuel efficiency, decrease emissions and keep performance on par. Plus, the PX-MiEV comes with an added helping of "cocochi" – Japanese for "cozy."

PX is Mitsubishi shorthand for "plug-in hybrid crossover," so a 1.6-liter inline-four powers the front wheels, along with a generator, and a new plug-in system allows users to tap into the grid with either a 100 or 200-volt outlet. The PX-MiEV boasts an EV mode with a 30-mile range which can toggle between front- and all-wheel drive, a series hybrid mode when the juice dries up and a parallel hybrid system when under full load. Mitsu's E-4WD system shuffles power to the rear wheels when needed, using the same S-AWC and E-AYC systems as the Evolution X. The PX-MiEV can send torque left-to-right depending on the conditions, and a new center differential motor (unlike the mutli-plate clutch setup on the Evo) actively tweaks torque output to the rear wheels to increase grip.

Inside, the PX-MiEV sports a spartan interior with a number of technologies to keep occupants happy and healthy, including heat reflective glass and paint, along with individual air conditioners. Active safety systems – ranging from a "Multi-Around Monitor" to a front-facing camera that detects fatigue, then alerts the driver through a series of visual, audio and "vibrational" warnings – are sure to find their way into future Mitsubishi models. All the details are yours for the taking the in press release below the fold.

Its velocity of about 185 km per hour while fly in the air.

To take off, It requires preparations distance of about 520 meters, but only to a few hundred yards to landing. Changes from landline mode to flight mode can be done simply by pressing a button in the cabin.

Propeller which used when flight mode is stored and locked safe when using landline mode. To save it, doesn't need space for a hangar. It's can be stored in the garage, because its wings can be folded.
