Although not yet for everyone, there are some great reasons to consider purchasing a hybrid vehicle for your next car. Not only are they better for the environment, they will help you save gas.
It is the time when people are getting more conscious about the environment and their resources and hence they are also trying to change their lifestyle and habits in order to meet the standards that would help protect the environment as well as the natural resources available to us. Many might won
Electric cars are considered by some to be the wave of the future that will eventually replace gasoline-powered cars. However, the issue of generators to charge the electric batteries must be addressed. A number of different options for generators are available, depending on what method you're going
Hybrid vehicles produce electricity from their components and systems that are designed to generate this electrical power in order to operate the vehicle.
Hydrogen cars are a relatively new option available to consumers looking to purchase a vehicle, according to Michael Boxwell and Quentin Wilson, authors of "Owning an Electric Car 2010 Edition." While these vehicles are environmentally friendly and run on a renewable resource (water),...
People are very much particular for buying the branded cars and particularly when they are very brand conscious. Some says that type of the car reflects the personality of the human and hence when we hear the term BMW, what strikes is the most is the luxurious cars in the market. The BMW cars for sa
The Toyota Prius is the best-selling hybrid vehicle in the world, a vehicle introduced in 1997 and now claiming more than 1 million units sold. Toyota is ramping up production and expanding the Prius family and may soon sell 1 million units annually worldwide if demand continues to rise. High gas pr
In these times that gasoline prices have gone so high, one way that car owners can reduce their auto running bills is to go electric.
Ethanol has been seen by the general public as an alternative fuel with almost zero drawbacks. While E85, a mix of 85 percent ethanol and 15 percent gasoline, does produce less pollution and is renewable through growing the corn used in its creation, it has some problems that anyone considering conv

Previously, there was some talk in the carwash industry, and also with those automobile engineers in Detroit who had come up with a 42 fold electrical scheme for future automobiles about the challenges of washing the car. After all, if you're washing the car and for some reason something goes w
The price of gasoline has gone sky-high. And the pollution from car exhausts has significantly increased. The auto industry's solution to these problems was to develop the hybrid car. Hybrid cars get better gas mileage, and they do not pollute the air as much as nonhybrid cars. However, there are di
Lead and AcidCar batteries are made with lead and lead oxide plates. These plates are placed next to each other in a mixture of water and sulfuric acid. The solution is about one-third acid and two-thirds water; the addition of the acid makes it an electrolytic substance, which means...
Rotary engines are rare powerplants, since they pose singular engineering challenges. As of 2010, the Mazda RX-8 is the only vehicle offered with a rotary engine. The design, as well as the power cycle, are completely different from those of conventional engines.
A car battery is the leader in the start-up process when the key is slipped into the ignition and turned. Working with other components underneath the hood, the battery is key to a car working properly.
A star forms as hydrogen gas and other matter gets condensed by the forces of gravity. The gravity causes nuclear fusion to occur, causing the star to release heat and light. Due to Earth's distance from most stars, the light a star emits can take a few years to reach Earth. Humans may see the light

How cool would it be to build your own solar car? That's what my husband Kelly Hart thought, over ten years ago. So he built one, with some help from me, and we called it our Sunmobile. We used it to drive around our small Colorado town.
A hydro-electric car harnesses hydrogen and electricity to power its engine. But this is more of an idea in progress than a working plan. The hydro-electric car contains fuel cells that combine hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity. It is the molecular conversion between hydrogen and electricit
Today, you can exchange your car's gas engine to a fully electric motor.The technology used to carry out electric vehicle conversions has reached a level where you can feel confident in the outcome.Aside from that, when you convert your car to an electric motor, you can reduce all kinds of expe
