Six questions to ask yourself when choosing a pair of hunting binoculars

Choosing the right pair of hunting binoculars has never been an easy task. In today’s market it is an even more difficult decision, with the introduction of several new manufacturers. The optics industry has seen tremendous growth in recent years and is fast becoming one of the fastest growing segments in the hunting world. Choosing a pair of optics is like choosing the right tree support. There are so many options available that it can get confusing, to say the least. I recently sold my pair of Redhead Epic 10X42 binoculars to a friend and will have to make this difficult decision myself in the near future. In this article, I am going to discuss the questions one should ask oneself before choosing the pair of binoculars that is right for them.

The first question I have to ask myself when choosing a new pair of binoculars is “what will I use them for the most” and “what is most important to me”. Let’s start with the first part of the question. What will you use your binoculars for the most? I do a lot of tree hunting during the season, and archery season is my favorite time of year. I also take trips north when I can and use my binoculars to glaze the edges and ridges of farmland. Knowing this, I can rule out bulky oversized models, high magnification. I need a pair of binoculars that I can wear around my neck while on the stand or while stalking, that don’t get in the way, but also have the right magnification to use while sitting in large farm fields in the north or on pasture here in Florida. . Weight, size, and light gathering ability are the most important factors to me when choosing a pair of binoculars. Let’s look at these factors in more detail.

Is weight the most important feature to you? Tree stand hunters don’t want a heavy pair of binoculars weighing them on the tree, plus glass isn’t that nice with a heavy pair of optics. If you are going to use your binoculars from a vehicle or while looking in open terrain, weight may not be such a big issue for you. Just a few ounces can make a big difference when using your binoculars for several minutes at a time.

How about the size of your binoculars? Many companies now offer their binocular lines in three categories: compact, medium and large. When shooting archery, a large pair of binoculars can get in the way at crucial moments when trying to shoot. However, most compact series binoculars lack the light gathering capabilities that the medium and large models have. Many turkey hunters like to use compact binoculars that can easily fit in a shirt pocket when not in use. Having a good set of compact binoculars can be a huge advantage when you don’t need to see more than 100 yards or so. However, in open areas or in low light situations, they can hamper your ability to judge an animal from a distance. Choosing the correct size range is the next step in determining which pair is right for you.

What objective power do I need? This is probably the most common question in determining which pair of binoculars to choose. Average 7X to 16X magnification for most manufacturers, with larger magnification models available. Personally, I like the magnification of a 10X binocular. Some hunters who primarily hunt dense thickets or thickets do not need as much magnification, while other hunters in the west need magnifications greater than that while sporting distant ridges for larger game. Most archery hunters don’t need more than 7X or 8X binoculars, but if you’re also a rifle hunter, that little bit of extra power can go a long way. The magnification also depends on the size of your objective lens to know how well it will work during the early hours of the morning, late at night, or cloudy days.

How do I know what size objective lens will work best for me? Most compact and medium binoculars have objective lenses in the 25mm to 36mm size range. Full-size binoculars have objective lens sizes that range from 40mm to 56mm on average. The size of your objective lens will determine many factors in the performance of your binoculars. The smaller the objective lens, the smaller your field of view. This may not be important if all you need to see is several feet through thick bushes or trees. In open areas, smaller fields of view can make the difference between seeing a few animals in a herd and the entire herd. The size of your objective lens also has a direct impact on the light gathering ability of your binoculars.

What does the light gathering ability mean to me? Remember that the smaller the objective lens, the less light can pass through the lens into your eye. Magnification also plays a crucial role in light gathering capabilities. Lower magnification binoculars have larger fields of view, which means that more light can be passed into the pupils. The key to determining how well your binoculars will work in low-light situations is called the “exit pupil.” This term is displayed in millimeters and refers to the width of the available light coming out of the viewing end of your binoculars. The pupil of the human eye can only capture so much light in situations where available light is scarce. A pair of binoculars with an exit pupil of 5mm or more will work best in low light situations. How is this related to your objective lens size and magnification? The smaller the objective lens, the less available light can pass through the objective lens. The higher the magnification, the less available light can pass into your pupils. Keep this in mind if light gathering ability is one of your main features when choosing a pair of binoculars.

The last piece of the puzzle is the quality of the lenses and prisms in your binoculars. The old saying “you get what you pay for” applies here to some extent. Most binoculars in the $ 200-plus price range have better lenses, lens coatings, and prisms. But what does all this mean? Let’s start with the lenses first. Good quality lenses will be smooth and symmetrical in size throughout. Even small flaws, waves, or discrepancies in lens density can mean lower clarity and display performance. The best way to see this difference is to buy a $ 25 pair of compact binoculars and compare them to a larger $ 300 pair. You should immediately see a huge difference in brightness and clarity across the entire field of view. Some less expensive binoculars are very clear in the center of the viewing frame, but become blurry when looking towards the edges of the field of view. Coatings that manufacturers put on lenses also aid clarity and light-gathering capabilities. It’s like looking through a pair of quality polarized sunglasses, versus a $ 5 pair at the gas station.

Prisms (which are the mirrors inside binoculars that reflect the light coming through the objective lenses to the magnifying lenses at the other end) are also important. The better the quality of the prism / mirror, the better the performance of the binocular. The last quality feature of binoculars is the gas purge. This is what manufacturers refer to by the term “fog proof”. This simply means what gas the manufacturer uses to fill their optics before sealing them. Nitrogen is the most common gas used in mid-priced binoculars due to its ability to not condense on internal lenses at varying temperatures. Most high-end binoculars are purged with argon gas, as it will not condense over a wider range of temperatures and conditions.

There are many more factors that determine the performance and quality of your binoculars. I tried to cover the most important features to consider. Remember to ask yourself the questions I have discussed above when choosing the right pair for you. Good luck in your decision and feel free to email us if you have any questions about the binoculars we offer.

Good luck,

In the end! The electric car industry gains momentum

The electric car industry has had many false starts, with the first one arriving as early as the 1880s. To be exact, the first successfully built electric car hit the road in 1888, originating from a German manufacturing plant. Since then, several other attempts have been made throughout history to bring these cars to the mass market to no avail. The current wave of enthusiasm for them started in 2008 and is likely to continue, considering how far the industry has come in the last five years. All factors considered, it appears that these cars are finally breaking through the “glass ceiling” to enter the mainstream auto market.

These cars, as the name suggests, are cars that run entirely on electric power. The energy is stored in a reserve (battery) from which it powers the engine (s), which power the car. Since electric power is renewable, these cars have garnered a lot of attention in recent years due to their ability to eliminate the emissions problem that is affecting environmental conservation efforts globally. It is common knowledge that motor vehicles are the biggest contributors to the emissions threat. As such, a switch from diesel and gasoline powered vehicles will undoubtedly reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by a massive margin.

This makes them one of the solutions to global warming and its devastating effects. At this point, one would wonder why, if these cars have the potential to solve such a serious problem, they have not been adopted on a large scale. There are several answers to this question.

First, his inability to travel long distances without interruption has been by far his biggest flaw. Since they are powered by battery power, battery capacity becomes an issue. Until recently, batteries could only store charge capable of powering an electric car for a distance of 90 kilometers at a time. This deficiency led to what electric car enthusiasts commonly refer to as “range anxiety.” The problem was further exacerbated by the fact that charging infrastructure was largely poor or underdeveloped in most of the world. Having an electric car was therefore impractical.

However, there is some good news! Tesla recently introduced a new battery with a range of 315 miles for use in these cars. This translates to 506.9 kilometers. Undoubtedly, this will effectively solve the problem of range anxiety and make these cars more popular because most vehicle owners, for example in the US, drive less than 40 miles per day. This, coupled with the fact that charging infrastructure and equipment is being established around the world, ensures that people no longer worry about being stranded on the road when batteries run out. To add to the good news, current batteries can be charged much faster and more efficiently.

Another contributor to the growing popularity of electric cars has been their prohibitive cost. Although today almost all large car manufacturers have their own model in this category, they still produce them on a small scale, which makes production very expensive; costs that are generously passed on to the buyer. The implication here is that while some environmentally conscious people may want to own an electric car, they cannot afford one that can meet their travel needs. For example, Tesla models equipped with the 315-mile capacity battery will cost between $ 134,500 and $ 135,500. This price range is well above the average for the average car owner. However, it is encouraging that since such improvements will bolster their popularity, this will lead to mass production and ultimately cost reduction.

These two have been the biggest obstacles for the electric car industry. However, since they are gradually being outperformed, the electric car industry is preparing to go. It’s only a matter of time before they upset the status quo in the auto industry. There have been claims that oil industry stakeholders have convinced automakers to abandon their ambitions to populate the world’s roads with electric cars. A classic example is GM’s EV1. However, currently the world has passed that stage and it can finally be said that electric cars will compete favorably in the automotive market. Then yes! There is hope for the electric car industry.

Don Tano Bongiorno’s slightly Sicilian twist on chicken with mozzarella

Chicken is, and always has been, a popular nutritious dish. There are as many ways to prepare a delicious chicken dinner as there are countries with their different recipes and tastes.

Today, I will share with you a chicken recipe that my mom used to make for us when we were little. Today he smiles at us from heaven knowing that he did a good job. None of us turned out to be a criminal and none of us got involved with the mob. Also, I always assure worried Palermo tourists that gangsters no longer carry submachine guns. They carry briefcases full of hundred dollar bills and buy what they want instead of killing people for it.

Where was it? Oh yeah, my mom’s chicken recipe: chicken with mozzarella.

Okay, first pick up some boneless, skinless chicken breasts. If you have heavy consumers, you can consider one and a half per person, or maybe even two, and unless you have your own garden at home, you should pick up some fresh basil leaves. (Hey, if it doesn’t have basil, it’s not Italian. What can I say?) And last but not least, a small block of mozzarella cheese. You could get the slices, but that’s not as good as I’ll show you.

Now, on a clean cutting board, place the chicken breasts, smooth side up, and cut several slots horizontally across the top, about a half inch deep.

Turn that oven on to about 400 degrees.

You can line a pan with aluminum foil, if not, at least spray it with nonstick spray. Spread out the chicken breasts and insert a basil leaf into each open cut, half a slice of fresh tomato (Roma is excellent, but any tomato will do). Add a nice slice of mozzarella cheese. And as a final touch, slide in a thin slice of fresh garlic.

Now brush or gently drizzle a thin layer of olive oil over the chicken. Some people like what they call Italian seasonings, but I prefer just salt, pepper, a little sugar, and maybe a touch of oregano.

Marsala (pretty much the national drink of Sicily!) Goes great with this, but don’t drink the whole bottle because you could burn your chicken.

After about twenty minutes, you should check the chicken. I use one of those metal skewers that you taste cakes with. If it comes out clean, your chicken is done. Otherwise, at that point you can turn off the oven and let the chicken sit inside for another ten to fifteen minutes.

While this is happening, you can boil any pasta option: spaghetti, rigatoni, mostaccioli, or maybe good elbow macaroni. The kids love it and I bet Daddy loves it too.

For a nice sauce, toss a handful of lightly minced garlic into a skillet with olive oil and, while it gets very hot, add some sliced ​​onion, celery and green peppers. Once it looks pretty much done, add a little broth or, if not available, use some powdered meat or powdered chicken or tomato broth with a cup of water per teaspoon. Not too much. Just what you think you will need for the family.

Once it’s boiled for a few minutes, strain, add a can of tomato paste and maybe a can of diced tomatoes, and boil again for a few minutes.

Served with a green salad and freshly grated Parmesan cheese on the table, you have a great dinner and the family will think that you really love them, even if it is routine to cook them.


1. Chicken Tano

  • One or 1-1 / 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts per person

  • 450 g mozzarella cheese

  • Two / three fresh Roma tomatoes

  • Three or four cloves of fresh garlic

  • Olive oil

  • A quarter pound of fresh basil leaves

2. Pasta

Pasta of choice according to package directions for quantities.

3. Sauce

A pint of broth (canned broth, beef, chicken, or tomato is fine).

Bring to a boil and add:

  • chopped celery

  • chopped onion

  • chopped peppers

  • finely chopped fresh basil (using leftover chicken filling

  • a small can of tomato paste

  • a can of diced tomatoes

The sauce should be simmered until slightly thickened.

2012 Chevy Camaro

Since the late 1960s, the muscle car has been loved and enjoyed as a simple and powerful car that is not designed for any average driver. One of the first and most successful companies in the sports car manufacturing game is Chevrolet. Chevy has been producing powerful V8 engines since the 1950s and this gave them a huge advantage in the muscle car world. In 1966, Chevy introduced the new Chevy Camaro in response to Ford’s new Mustang. Both cars were highly successful and the rivalry between the two cars created a cult following on both sides. In drag racing, competitive trans-am racing, and simple road car versions, the Camaro and Mustang have a rivalry that continues to thrive in the 21st century.

After the first Camaro launch in 1966, Chevy opted for new designs for each generation of new Camaros. After the fourth-generation Camaro, Chevy decided to change the look of the car again. This new design, however, would bring back the vibe of the original. In 2010, for the fifth generation of Camaros, Chevy designed a retro-inspired Camaro following the original lines and design of the original. He had a bold and aggressive attitude about it and it became an instant hit.

Now, Chevy has done it again. They have created a new beast, the 2012 Chevy Camaro. This Camaro continues the sixth generation just as they did the last 2 years, except now buyers have some new options.

Standard 2012 Chevy Camaro buyers have the following models available:

• LS 1LS
• LS 2LS
• LT 1LT
• LT 2LT

These “baseline” models feature the same V6 engine version that produces 323 horsepower and 278 lb.-ft. of rubber drop. of torque. With so much power, the knee-jerk question any savvy shopper would ask is when it comes to fuel economy. The 2012 Chevy Camaro can proudly answer that question. Even with an engine that makes more than three hundred and twenty horsepower, the Camaro gets an EPA estimate of 30 miles per gallon on the highway. It’s a great compromise between power and efficiency with the added bonus of being a legendary symbol of American power.

Camaro extends to the buyer a V8 engine option that further pushes the speed and power limit with the following models:

• SS 1SS
• SS 2SS

Anyone who knows the history of the Chevy SS badge knows that it stands for power. The SS logo, which stands for “Super Sport,” has appeared on Chevy stems from the Nova and Chevelle to the Camaro. Today, the symbol means the same thing. The 2012 Chevy Camaro SS lineup shares a powerful V8 engine that produces a staggering 426 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque. You can trust this power to be more than enough to get you to and from work on time.

For those who aren’t satisfied with being pulled over just once a day, there is another version of the 2012 Chevy Camaro. This new, barely legal, road-legal Camaro shares its engine design with that of the Chevy Corvette, the fastest car ever. Chevy has to offer. Producing 580 horsepower and 556 lb.-ft. of torque, this 6.2L supercharged V8 is no joke. The engine, of course, isn’t the only thing Chevy put its heart into. The car also comes with an improved suspension, gearbox, traction control and “Stabilitrak” stability control. Chevy announced that the car was designed and built to be racetrack ready from the showroom floor. This beast is definitely not for the weak, nor should it be taken lightly. Chevy has really done its homework and designed a car that gives the competition a run for their money.

The 2012 Chevy Camaro lineup has carried the Camaro name into the future with the same legendary pride and power expected from Chevy. Every year, Chevy seems to outperform itself at making cars that run both on the track and on fuel pumps, and the Camaro is a very healthy compromise on both ends. It is not known how far the Camaro will advance in future generations, but Chevy will surely keep up the surprises. One can’t help but be impressed with the power, engineering, and impressive design that can be found in the new 2012 Chevy Camaro.

Six cheapest and best-selling hybrid cars

If you are planning to go green, then you must take that passion and apply it to your cars as well. Today, you will find a multitude of fuel-efficient cars that consume less fuel than normal ones, helping to conserve the environment. These hybrid cars are equipped with a gasoline engine and an electric motor. But going green doesn’t necessarily mean skipping the style and the exterior. As manufacturers have now started combining the two, hybrid cars are selling like hot cakes.

Here is my list of the most popular and top-notch hybrid cars. The next six best-selling hybrid cars also have a lot of luxury features, which makes them so attractive and expensive, of course.

Toyota Prius hybrid:

It’s definitely not as big as the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid (mentioned later), but the Escalade’s sales are nothing compared to the Prius’s selling power. In reality, the Prius is the best-selling hybrid car on the market. Environmentally-loving people love it for its excellent fuel economy and exterior design, which has become their trademark style. The latest version is bigger and more comfortable and it also has solar panels on the roof (which don’t spoil its overall look if that worries you). The cheapest of all on the list, it is attractively priced at $ 24,200.

Cadillac Hybrid Escalade:

This fabulous car is a perfect example of how you don’t have to skip the glitter to save the environment. It’s the world’s first full-size luxury hybrid SUV and therefore comes at a whopping $ 73,850 price tag. I wouldn’t skip this one if I were you because it has features that are worth the price. It has a powerful V-8 engine and can seat eight passengers. Its high-tech interior features include: an ultrasonic rear parking assist, a rear-view camera, and music control that automatically adjusts for background noise. It comes with a 25% improvement in fuel economy when evaluated with the standard Escalade. Obviously, it doesn’t save as much fuel as smaller standard hybrid cars, but if you’re looking to combine luxury, space, and utility and a greener vehicle, then I’d recommend the Cadillac Escalade Hybrid.

Lexus LS600h

For those of you who want to go for a smaller but equally luxurious car like the Cadilac Hybrid Escalade, this is for you. It is the largest and most luxurious car produced by Toyota (which is the parent company of Lexus). It is different and unique both in external and internal aspects. The electric motor can propel the car at slower speeds to save gasoline and provide a power boost to the gasoline engine’s fuel economy at its best. I would recommend this if you want to combine an exciting ride with eco-driving. Its interior is equally beautiful with a combination of elegant leather and wood. All Lexus vehicles have a remote touch interface (RTI), but this particular 12.3-inch version is more eye-catching than the road. It even has a rear seat entertainment system with a cool under-arm footrest for cool drinks. Obviously, with all these wacky features, this car is priced at $ 119,910, which beats that of the Escalade.

Toyota Highlander Hybrid:

If you’re looking for a family vehicle that can carry a large number of people as well as luggage and is environmentally friendly, then Toyota’s Highlander Hybrid is the perfect fit for you. It seats up to seven people and has plenty of room for luggage, sports equipment, etc. It has a sophisticated powertrain with a 3.5-liter V6 engine accompanied by two electric motors instead of the usual one. It gives you up to 37 percent more fuel economy. It is also quite strong externally and is capable of withstanding tough conditions and uneven dirt roads without any problem. Internally, as mentioned above, it is spacious with plenty of legroom. It is equipped with the latest technology, such as a “Display Audio” multimedia system with a 6.1-inch touch screen and Toyota’s Entune service, which offers applications such as Bing search services, and Pandora music. The $ 46,370 price tag in my opinion is quite reasonable and affordable considering all the features it has to offer.

Honda Civic Hybrid:

The hybrid Honda Civic is one of the most affordable hybrid cars on the market, so it automatically earns a spot on this list. It is not much different from the standard Civic model, which makes it difficult to distinguish. Its gas-electric powertrain consists of a 1.5-liter inline four-cylinder i-VTEC engine that is combined with an electric motor to deliver 110 horsepower and 127 pound-feet of torque. The exterior is the same as the Civic, but the latest model has been updated with slightly different features and a better interior as well. The air vents have been revised and the cabin has been made more soundproof. In general, the driving experience is also quite pleasant; it’s easy to handle and accelerates well. It is reasonably priced at $ 24,360. However, lately its price has been outpaced by the cheaper Honda Insight.

Toyota Camry hybrid:

Another Toyota car on the list, which is not surprising considering that Toyota offers some of the best-selling and most popular hybrid cars. Like the Highlander Hybrid, this all-in-one also offers excellent performance and a comfortable, spacious interior. The engine is a 2.5-liter Atkinson cycle inline four-cylinder gasoline combined with an electric motor. The car is available in two versions: LE and XLE. The former has all the basic features like air conditioning, keyless entry, cruise control, etc. The XLE is a more advanced version with extra cool features like a 6.1-inch touchscreen and a leather-strap steering wheel with audio control. In contrast to the standard Camry, overall, there is a 26% improvement in fuel economy. The price is reasonable at $ 26,140 and the XLE version costs $ 1,530 more.

Mercedes-Benz, a touch of class

90 years ago, Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler founded the brand “Mercedes-Benz” in Stuttgart, Germany. After the First World War, the economy was so affected that the idea of ​​merging and building a society was seen as something that surpassed climatic obstacles. DMG and Benz & Cie., The two largest automobile manufacturers in the world, merged successfully in May 1924 and, in 1926, “Mercedes-Benz” was born.

The Mercedes three-star logo represents the company’s dominance over land, sea and air. According to the company, it represents the automaker’s push toward universal motorsports with its engines dominating land, sea and air. The emblem is a symbol of world domination.

Cars that made history

The engines in Mercedes cars are of the highest quality. These high-quality engines evolved with the evolution of different cars in each era from their first production. The Model K was the first car produced after the merger of the two companies.

It was incredibly successful and the production of Mercedes-Benz cars increased to 7,000 in 1927. Then came the S series with a variety of cars until 1929. In the 1930s, the largest and most prestigious car ‘Mercedes-Benz W15 made its debut. ‘. which helped them to become one of the leading brands in the automotive industry.

The 260 D was the world’s first diesel-powered passenger car. In the 1940s, the company halted vehicle production due to World War II and then resumed operations in 1946 with the 170 V. During the 1950s, they topped the sales charts in Germany by introducing some of their most attractive cars. , like the 190 and 300 SL.

The 1960s was the decade of muscle cars. In 1967, they introduced the Mercedes AMG as a separate high-performance division of the Mercedes-Benz. The first car introduced by the division was the famous 300SEL 6.3 V8 Saloon, which was given the name “Red Sow”.

During the 70s, they produced some successful cars like the SL and SLC 107 series of cars, the G-Class and S-Class series, which are still in production. In the 1980s, it became the first car manufacturing brand to worry about environmental pollution. They introduced the three-way closed-loop catalytic converter to reduce the overall pollution of the car.

In 1987, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 100 D 631 series and a year later the W201 Series 2 made its debut, which was a compact executive car with a sports sedan body style. In the 1990s, the company introduced the G-Class trucks and SUVs and numerous new models such as the E-Class, C-Class and S-Class series.

The 2000s ushered in a new era in mechanical top loading technology. The many innovative designs and engineering concepts, such as the BlueTec system, were launched in 2005 and had the ability to reduce CO2 emissions.

Today, Mercedes-Benz, together with its high-performance division AMG, is one of the best and most popular automakers that make luxury cars, trucks, coaches and buses. In addition, the company offers financial services and auto repair.

Quality and Innovation

Since their first production, they have been successful in building quality cars and discovering innovative ways to implement technology that turned out to be the way forward for future-generation cars. Some notable works introduced by them are as follows:

  • Developed the first road car with four-wheel brakes.

  • In 1936, the Mercedes-Benz 260D was the first diesel-operated passenger car.

  • They were the first to offer direct fuel injection in the Mercedes-Benz 300SL.

  • In 1951 they were the first to develop the “safety cage”.

  • Airbags were first introduced to the European market by them in 1981 with the S-Class model.

  • Mercedes-Benz was the first to introduce seat belt claims in the 1981 S-Class.

  • In September 2003, they introduced the world’s first seven-speed automatic transmission.

  • They are the first to develop, test and implement ESP, brake assist and other types of safety equipment in passenger cars.

  • In the 1980s, they developed the world’s first robot car together with Professor Dickmanns’ team.

Mercedes-Benz Arena in sports

Mercedes-Benz is a sports enthusiast brand. In football, Mercedes-Benz sponsors the German national football team. Mercedes-Benz sponsors Bundesliga club VfB Stuttgart and provides the naming rights to its stadium, the Mercedes-Benz Arena. They’ve been racing for a long time. In the 1930s they participated in Grand Prix Motor races. For the past few years, they have dominated the F1 field with drivers like Michael Schumacher, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg.

Identity and cooperation

The Mercedes-Benz logo speaks volumes about the brand, even if the name is not there. Now they are moving forward with the invention and implementation of new technologies that we do not yet know about. They have been a great companion for years. Such success and fame did not make them irresponsible. They haven’t made a big fuss about safety innovations, and have even licensed them for use by competitors, in the name of improving car and passenger safety. As a result, crumple zones and antilock brakes are now standard on all modern vehicles.

Gasoline Saver Device for SUV: Tips to Convert Your SUV to a Hydrogen Hybrid to Save Fuel

Sports utility vehicles (SUVs) are designed for people who want power and luxurious interior design for their cars. That is why most SUVs come with a large engine capacity and a wide range of additional accessories. However, many SUV owners are in a quandary right now due to high gas prices at the local pump station. Since the global supply of crude oil from the Middle East is limited, gas prices are expected to rise further in the near future. How can a car owner reduce his fuel bill? One recommendation is to install an SUV gas saving device. How does the concept work? This article will provide information on the science of turning a car into a hydrogen hybrid vehicle.

An SUV gasoline saving device in basically a kit that turns an internal combustion engine into a hydrogen hybrid machine. The device uses hydrogen gas (H2) as a supplementary energy source for automobiles. The H2 supply is generated from water through an electrolysis process. The extraction process is possible because water is made of 2 parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, hence its name H2O. The hydrogen kit collects H2 and releases it into the engine’s air intake compartment.

When the SUV’s engine is running, it will suck fresh air and hydrogen gas into the combustion chambers. A hydrogen hybrid vehicle generates energy by igniting the mixture of gasoline and H2 in the chamber. The explosion is much stronger due to the rapid combustion rate of hydrogen gas. The end result is strong engine power. In theory, when an SUV uses the same amount of gasoline with a higher horsepower engine, it has the potential to travel further, thus increasing its mileage. When a vehicle increases its miles per gallon (MPG), the car owner will experience fuel savings.

Installing an SUV gas saving device is a simple procedure. Anyone with some basic car maintenance skills will be able to convert. It’s a good idea to get a blueprint for modification to help you before you begin. Most of the good quality conversion guides can be purchased on the web. To reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, the feasible option is to install a fuel saving device in our vehicle.

The future of Ford hybrids

With all the attention that Nissan, Toyota and General Motors have attracted in the recent hybrid industry, Ford remains a constant, slowly moving towards a leading position in the competition for the most popular and reliable electric cars on the market. With the success of the Honda Insight and Toyota Prius, Ford took notice and saw a profitable trend in the guise of an industry wave just beginning to grow.

Today, Ford continues to push the media and Congress to offer better and more tax incentives to produce hybrid vehicles. Bill Ford has designs and expectations to make Ford the most innovative leader in the competitive high-tech hybrid market. Ford is not as keen on continuing the tradition as it now intends to renew and reclaim its groundbreaking and innovative future.

Some recent figures

As of July 16, 2013, Ford has quadrupled its share of the US electric vehicle market. The company has expanded its growth by hiring new engineers, spending more on research and development, including new plants and facilities, and focusing on fuel economy improvements. Ford’s share of the US market has risen to 16 percent, an increase of 12 share points. Meanwhile, Toyota’s share has dropped to 8 points, and largely due to the switch to Ford’s new C-MAX hybrid. Ford’s vehicle sales have shown a 400 percent increase in one year, totaling 46,197 units sold through June of this year. The Ford C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid and Ford C-MAX hybrid have driven most of the sales growth. The coastal markets, Texas and Florida have strong sales and trade-in appeal for the C-MAX, while Toyota’s sales are down 5 percent. According to Polk’s log data, the first five months of 2013 have seen Ford dominate the California market.

In the past month alone, the C-MAX accounted for 64 percent of non-Ford brand owners who swapped their Toyota Prius for the Ford C-MAX.

Little Tikes Race Car Bed – Tips When Buying and Assembling

With the release of Disney’s animated Cars and its upcoming sequel, Cars 2, the Little Tikes race car bed has once again become popular in many young children’s bedrooms. If you are thinking of buying one of these great beds, read on and I will give you the best tips you need to know when buying and assembling one of these great beds.

Why choose a race car bed?

That’s a good question, and the answer is that most parents have found these beds to be great when their little one has been transitioning from crib to bed and with these beds it couldn’t be smoother. Many parents have been excited to find that their little one has even gone to bed earlier, just for the pleasure of sleeping in his new racing bed. Going to bed now can be a pleasant experience, and you know that you will sleep comfortably with your new friend and better yet in your own room.

What bed to choose?

First of all, what are the Little Tikes race car bed options? Well, first there is the most popular bed, which is the Little Tikes Lightning McQueen Race Car Twin Bed. This is the bed based on the little character from the aforementioned Disney movie. The bed is red with stickers to match those in the movie. This little character has been popular with young children everywhere and having a bed like this has never been more fun.

The second bed option is the standard Little Tikes sports car bed, which is exactly the same as the Little Tikes Lightning McQueen race car bed in dimensions and shape, but without the Lightning McQueen decals. These beds come in a selection of colors from primary blue, cherry red, white, green, yellow, black and there is even pink for your little Miss Penelope Pitstop.

Finally, Little Tikes has produced the Little Tikes Lightning McQueen Roadster Toddler Bed, so now even toddlers aged 15 months to 5 years can have their own cute little bed. These beds look exactly the same as the previous beds, but are much smaller in dimensions.

Sleeping safely: How safe?

This is one of the biggest questions parents want to know, and with a Little Tikes racing bed, you can be sure that you will be very safe.

The sides of these beds are high enough that you don’t need to add rails, and these sides get taller towards the top end of the bed. They get lower on the foot, that our Little Boy Racer can climb onto his bed or slide down and out. One thing you should not worry about is that there will be no problem with him rolling while he sleeps.

How strong are these beds?

These beds are strong! If you are familiar with other Little Tikes products, you will know that they only make quality products, and these race car beds are no exception. Made from a double-walled plastic construction, these beds are made with the “pebble” plastic common with other Little Tikes products, and these beds will be able to withstand the most boisterous games.

What should I consider before buying one of these beds?

The most important thing to consider is the space required for one of these beds. They are larger than a standard bed, so make sure you have adequate space. Also, if you order online, be sure to schedule delivery time for when you’re inside because the box is large.

What is not included with one of these beds?

These beds are designed to fit a standard size double mattress that you must provide yourself. The Lightning McQueen Roadster Toddler Bed uses the smallest standard crib mattress in the US You must also provide your own box springs or you can use a bunk support board if you prefer.

The bed comes with three wooden mattress supports, but these alone will not support the mattress. These can be placed on two levels depending on how high or low you would like the mattress to be.

Will I be able to build one of these beds?

Yes, don’t worry, you won’t have any problem. The only tool you will need is a screwdriver and the assembly instructions are very clear to read and understand. On average, it takes about an hour to assemble, and some people do it in less.

The only care that is really needed is when applying the decals as they can be a bit fiddly. It’s probably best to apply these first before assembling the bed, although you won’t be able to do this with the wheels because they need to be screwed in first because the decal will cover the center bolt. The thing to remember when applying the decals is to be patient and take your time. Personally, I would advise you to help someone to hold the other side of the decal while it is applied.

Running to the land of dreams

Just look at the surprise on his face when you walk into your new room to see your Little Tikes Race Car Bed waiting there for your new friend, and most importantly, you can rest easy knowing that you are happy dreaming of the open road safely. Dreamland.
