Keep a track of your car’s consumption!

Want to keep a track of your car’s gas mileage, but you think it might be too much hassle? Well, you might want to take a look at the Track Your Gas Mileage website. With 2 simple steps, it takes care of all the hassle for you.

Now why would you like to keep a track of your gas mileage you say? Well, there are several benefits to knowing your vehicle’s mileage over time. An obvious suggestion would be that you could improve your driving habits and save gas and money at the pump. Aggressive driving alone can lower your gas mileage by anywhere between 5 and 33%. Seeing improvement in your mileage might give you the inspiration to keep driving conservatively and saving dollars.

Another less obvious reason is your car’s health. A clogged filter alone can cause you 10% loss in gas mileage. Other problems like faulty oxygen sensors can increase gas mileage by as much as 40%. Keeping track of your gas mileage you can easy see how much mileage your car used to get, and compare it to how much it’s getting now. This way if your vehicle is losing gas mileage gradually over several weeks or months, you’ll be aware of the problem and you can get it checked.

So how do you calculate mileage? Well, next time you are at the pump, reset your trip meter (or write down your total odometer reading, if you don’t have a trip meter) and fill a full tank. Next time you’re at the pump fill a full tank again, but write down the distance you drove since you last filled the tank before you reset your trip meter again. Then divide the miles you drove by the amount you filled. That’ll give you your miles per gallon (If you’re metric, you’ll want to divide your amount filled by the kilometres driven and multiply by 100 to get Litres per 100Km) for that particular tank.

Sound tricky? Well if you sign up with Track Your Gas Mileage, all you have to do is write down the trip meter readings on your gas receipts at the pump, and bring them home. Plug the data into your account, and all the calculations are done automatically. It keeps a history log for you, with all your fill ups, average mileage over time, and handy graphs to show you development over time. And best of all, it’s totally free!

Get Paid To Drive Your Car

There are lots of websites on the internet that offer all kinds of get "paid to" programs and one of them is to get paid to drive your car.

Is this for real?

Most of the websites on the internet that offer the get paid to drive your car offer are scams, although there are some websites that are legit, most of them are phony. To actually get paid to drive your car you will need to know someone locally or actually talk to the person. I am not saying that it will be impossible to do it over the internet, but you are risking more, since these programs ask for personal information, I rather do it in person.

What is it?

It is quite simple, advertiser use cars to put vinyls on them for more unique advertising. The vinyls do not damage the paint of the car and can easily be removed, so that leaves no commitment, unless you sign a contract. Some of the advertiser even give you their own car, and you don't even have to have a car, but that depends on the advertiser. Some of them don't pay money, but pay for your gas based on your gas receipts, which is really good, because you basically drive your car for free!

What does it look like?

This is an example of a car with vinyls that advertise a website. In this case you would have a little trouble removing the vinyls, but it is doable, and it won't ruin your car's paint.

If the idea sounds tempting to you check it out, and most importantly do your research ahead of time!

Spy Shots: Subaru Impreza







This is what the new Subaru Impreza looks like, and if you ask me it is not better then the old one. This one looks like a Volkswagen Golf or a Ford Focus, but the old Subaru had a more unique look to it which made it more likable.
