The smart car is essentially something to die for. Why you ask? Well, take a look here at what they call their Tridion Safety Cell. While that sounds like a really cool technical name, when I researched how it works if you’re in a crash, you may not survive; hence the to die for revelation.

Our current engines are so inefficient that we literally burn our cash. The EPA would have a heart attack if you got rid of your catalytic converter recycler, and for a good reason. A large amount of our fuel is unused. Without a catalytic converter recycling you’d be pouring gas onto the street right out of your muffler. The catalytic converter recycling cooks all the unused fuel to improve emissions. Here’s how HHO nips that in the bud. The more efficient combustion while using HHO means less unused fuel. So much less that you don’t need your catalytic converter recycling, and your HHO emissions turn into water. This alone improves MPG and cleans emissions, but this isn’t the only benefit it gets better.

There have really not been enough failures to really pin point a limit for the various power-train components. The motor could fail at factory power levels if it was running dangerously lean. But when well tuned, the motors internals (Pistons, Rods, Crank, Head Gasket etc) are reliable to 700rwhp. But of course at these power levels, if the engine is not set-up and tuned properly, it is literally a bomb waiting to go off, however this would be just as true with a built motor. Some owners have pushed their stock internals to the limit and have well exceeded 800rwhp, and even approached 900rwhp. I still don’t understand how such an over built motor made it past the bean counters at Toyota Corporate.

The second type of synthetic oil is made from semi synthetic oil. This is a blend of oil which has up to 30 percent synthetic base. The other part is petroleum oil. Some people say that it is no better than regular oil because the synthetic percentage is so low and yet it is priced much higher but to marketers make higher profits because it is much less expensive to make blends than fully synthetic oils. It may require additives which can make it not worth the money.

It has many other unusual uses as well. Electrical contacts are made from rhodium because they have a low electrical resistance. Rhodium plate is used as well in optical equipment and in mammography systems as a filter. High quality writing pens also contain the metal. The most popular use however is for cars recycle catalytic converters in the exhaust system.

A mentioned above a water hybrid car can increase your MPG by 30 miles, well in fact you can DOUBLE your MPG. If you double your MPG it means you can go twice as far as you could with just gasoline. During the current economic climate you cold really do with those few catalytic converter recycler extra bucks from saving fuel.

What were the most recent repairs? The most recent repairs done will help you understand if the person is keeping the car up, what condition it is currently in and whether you are facing a bunch more repairs because the car is starting to fall apart. If they just did a whole lot of repairs, likely they are scared the car is starting to fall apart and they want to get rid of it now. This situation could go either way for you. The car may be great now, or it may fall apart. You may want your mechanic to look at the car.

A lot of junk car companies will give you a price for the car, and then when they show up, they deduct the price of towing from the final cost. This is another trick. If they were going to deduct the towing from the price, then they should have told you that over the phone. So tell them no, and that you will only sell for the price agreed upon.
