Alternative Fuel Harmful For Your Car?

People always have been under undue stress for the ever rising price of gasoline. For quite a long time, search for an alternative form of fuel to run automobiles has been on. If you are not aware of the latest automotive news, then this article is meant to congratulate you with the information of some recent development as a result of a great deal of research on part of the scientists.

“The best engineered”

Today it is a fact that you can use your tap water as an alternative to the petrol, diesel, or gasoline that you have so far been using as the fuel for your car. It certainly does not mean that you pour water instead of the oil in the gas tanks and start your car. Here, you have to remodel your car engine to suit the purpose and add a few other components along with water that will drive the car.

You need to add a small water tank or jar to your car if you need to run your car on water. We all know that water is a compound and it is made of hydrogen and oxygen. H2O or water turns into oxy-hydrogen gas or HHO after electrolysis. It means the compound changes after it gets electrified. The electricity is derived from the existing battery of your car. The oxyhydrogen gas is flammable and you need to channel the gas to the gas tank of your car.

This process will produce enough energy and you can run your car on the energy that comes from water. It saves a lot of your hard earned money that you spend as fuel charges. You need to make some slight modifications to the engine of your car because common engines cannot run on this system. Your car needs specially designed equipment to make use of this alternative fuel. Now, the question arises as to whether it is safe for your car to run on waterpower. You would perhaps also like to know about the advantages and disadvantages once you start running your car on waterpower.

People think that the new alternative system may harm their car. When they convert a car that is made to run on gasoline to a car that runs on water, it is natural that many people will have a rather edgy feeling about the entire proposition. Experts however, have something very different to say about this new innovation. They are of the opinion that such an alternative system does not cause any harm to the car.

Even if there is any harm, it is of a very small intensity and leaves the car without any serious negative impact. The technology that is used for this purpose is not at all harmful. It actually uses electricity to break down water into oxygen and hydrogen atoms and form the inflammable oxy-hydrogen gas and uses external devices to produce the energy. Therefore, it will never have damaging impact on the car.

One of the most important things about the system is that this alternative idea guarantees reversible service. If you do not feel comfortable with this service, you can always get back to the previous stage at anytime that you want. The entire system is quite simple and the service providers will teach you how to protect your car from any type of hazard that may be caused if you use the car that runs on the latest water technology.

Innovative Design For Those Who Are Driven

BMW will tell you it isn’t so, but the new 3 Series is the start of a softening of Chris Bangle’s most angular design language. The car you see is not an evolution of an existing car but a ground up model, an energetic attempt to re-invent the most popular BMW model with unarguably good looks that match its top class driving dynamics.

The first thing you notice is that the car has dropped the current teardrop headlamps and done away with the aircraft carrier trunk lid. Next to go are the cut lines and the aggressive mix of concave and convex panels. It’s still recognizably a BMW though. The big news underneath is the new multitude independent suspension (borrowed from the 5 series) is designed to combine unrivalled ride comfort, with taut handling. On top of that you can expect Dynamic Drive (that’s adjustable anti-roll bars), Active Steering(TM), and a four wheel drive system as options. The fifth generation BMW 3 Series superstar shines brighter than the predecessor with a torque loving, direct injection, and environmentally conscious engine. (Don’t rule out a hybrid just yet – by 2009 BMW’s partnership with DaimlerChrysler and GM will have born a fruit, enabling the Germans to catch up with Lexus.) Additionally, the new 3 Series features increased passenger room and enhanced safety features.

Step inside the cabin of the 2006 BMW 3 Series, you’ll find the interior has an instinctive feel to it; every switch and readout is ergonomically placed for a reason, where you will look for it. The surrounding materials are made from high quality wood, leather and plastics enhancing the appeal of this sports machine. The seats offer ample support to the lower back and thigh while enhancing the body’s disposition for spirited driving. And the intuitively placed center display rewards the enthusiast spirit by enabling the driver to easily read every dial and be in touch with the engine.

Turn the key and put the car in gear, you’ll find the car engineered to move. The smooth delivery of speed is exhilarating. The engine pulls like a conditioned sprinter all the way up to its 6800 redline. The real joy is experiencing the sound of the engine. The loud, visceral scream is clean and mechanical, distinct from any muffler or aftermarket accessory. Additionally, the optional Active Steering(TM) reduces steering inputs at high speed and increases inputs at low speeds, enhancing the overall tactile responsiveness of the car. The 2006 BMW 3 Series features the first magnesium block engine to reduce engine weight. The new inline six-cylinder produces 215 horsepower in the 325; and 255 horsepower in the 330i. Linear velocity is smooth due to BMW’s revolutionary Valvetronic(TM) system that helps the engine breathe more efficiently even at low RPMs. To experience more fully, simply find an open road and press the accelerator.

In terms of handling and cornering, the 2006 BMW 3 Series also features a perfect 50:50 front to rear weight distribution, making it extremely responsive in turns and at the limits. The rear wheels provide the thrust while the front steers the vehicle with exceptional feedback. The new suspension with double-joint aluminum control arms in front and a five-link fully independent system in the rear is borrowed from the larger 5 Series. Additionally, the new 3 Series also features BMW’s most sophisticated Dynamic Stability Control(TM) with more sensors to monitor and enhance the ride.

For those of you who prefer the stick shift, the 2006 BMW 3 Series transmission and gears have also been refined; a six speed manual, an optional six speed automatic, or the six speed electro-hydraulic Sequential Manual Gearbox(TM) (SMG) are three very promising choices. The SMG is a manual with no clutch pedal, a welcome relief for the enthusiast drivers who prefers sporty shifting but dislikes using the clutch in toe-to toe traffic.

Additionally, the 2006 3 Series builds on BMW’s lineage on passive and active safety by adding advanced, intelligent safety systems. The passive safety begins with BMW’s rigid “safety cage” that surrounds the occupant with deformable energy absorbing tubes. In case of an extreme crash, impact energy is absorbed and routed around the passenger cabin. Sensors throughout the car measure crash severity and deploy airbags as needed. Six airbags are on hand to shield occupants from harm, two in front and the rest as part of the side curtain that protects from the A-pillar in front to the C-pillar at rear. All BMW 3s are also equipped with Dynamic Brake Control(TM) which is designed to help you stop more quickly during emergency braking. Brake sensors determine how forcefully you step on the brake pedal and apply maximum braking power to stop the car if needed.

As BMW’s most successful model, the 3 Series was first introduced in 1977, and now accounts for 40 percent of all sales worldwide. Gradually, the car has formed a loyal following. To meet enthusiast driver’s individualistic needs, the 2006 3 Series is available in nine iterations: 325i sedan, 325xi sedan, 325Ci coupe, 325Ci convertible, 325xi sports wagon, 330i sedan, 330xi sedan, 330Ci coupe and the 330Ci convertible, with MSRP ranging from $30,900 to $44,900. Although not available as a Hybrid yet, the 2006 BMW 3 Series averages 20 mpg city, 30 mpg highway to successfully reinvent a top automotive performer.

Boosting Power Through Car

There are several innovative ways to upgrade your car’s performance in both the small and larger parts of your car. Car tuning can take on the different aspects of your car which can individually contribute to improving and upgrading your car, not to mention the safety and durability that it provides.

In the area of fine engine tuning, car engines can be retrofitted with a performance chip to give it a special boost. It can be adaptable to engines in their fuel injection or electronic control unit systems. This performance chip can easily contribute to better performance of the regular engines by as much as 10 percent, and to turbo engines by as much as 30 horsepower. In car tuning, a performance cam could also be installed adding another 12 horsepower to your engine boost. The fuel pressure regulator can be replaced with a power boost valve in the return fuel line to likewise increase the power of your car.

With improvements in the driving power, you can also introduce additional modifications to its stopping power through brake performance tuning. Actually, it is recommended that you equip your car with an upgraded braking system before introducing car power modifications. Although it is not considered a performance upgrade, the braking system helps in the performance and safety of the car. In car tuning, a direct way to enhance braking is to fit your car with high performance brake pads and brake disks which can withstand extreme heat during extreme braking conditions better than regular pads and disks.

Air filter tuning is considered the simplest in car tuning tasks. Air filters and air filter elements can be substituted with high performance air filters for a special power boost in your engine performance. There is also the option of using an induction kit to improve air flow in a fuel-injection system instead of using the original air box. This kit features a conical filter that can be installed directly over the air flow gauge and lead the air better into the engine, which effectively upgrades the engine’s performance.

You can also improve your car’s performance by introducing enhancements to your exhaust system. The less impeded the exhaust fumes are in exiting the car, the better the performance of the same. Larger exhaust manifolds and pipes can make for better engine performance. Another key area in car tuning is the suspension system. The key to better performance is to create a low profile for your car by introducing low springs, lower profile wheels and tires, and shock absorbers. With a low profile the car has less difficulty in maneuvering and cornering.

There are countless tuning equipment and supplies which could aid you in your car tuning needs and these are available over the Internet. Automotive spare parts can likewise be canvassed online to make your endeavor easier and more convenient.
