Petrol car owners typically find themselves facing 4 options at the bowser: Premium 98 Octane, 95 Octane, Regular 91 Octane, and E10. 98, 95 and 91 are understandably a descending order of quality (after all, 98 is bigger than 95, right?), but what about E10 on the end there? It ruins the whole pattern. We’d hope most long-term car owners know what E10 is by now, but for newer car owners it can be a bit confusing. Here’s everything you need to know about E10 fuel: What Is E10 fuel? The name E10 comes from the fact it’s a fuel mix made with 10-percent ethanol. Ethanol is a fuel derived from food waste that burns cleaner and cooler, providing performance that is more powerful and eco-friendly. The downside to Ethanol over petrol is it is less efficient as a fuel source, meaning worse fuel mileage. Combining petrol and Ethanol is intended to give drivers the best of both worlds. Interestingly, while E10 is cheaper than 91 octane fuel, it actually has a higher octane rating — … [Read More...]

The brothers will be sharing the #88 Coors Light Geiser Bros. AWD Trophy Truck and will be the first off the line this Saturday. “Christian and I have always dreamed about getting an overall at the Baja 1000,” said Brett Sourapas. “I remember looking through all the old pictures of my dad getting the overall at the 1985 Baja 1000 in a limited vehicle. Seeing him reminisce on that exact moment and how much it meant to him, makes my brother and I hungry to share that same feeling my dad and Dave Richardson felt 34 years ago.” - MadMedia, 2019 “I am well aware that I have a reputation for being a psycho driver, but I want to show that I have matured and can control my need for speed to race strategically and be disciplined,” added Christian Sourapas. “Like Matt Martelli says, … [Read More...]

At a certain point as you climb up the rungs of quality, whichever of two things you prefer boils down to personal taste. When two expert artists put everything they have into their work, there isn’t an objective way to conclude which is better. Lexus and Lincoln can be talked about in the same way, because their reputation for producing vehicles embodying world-class luxury is well earned. Only with cars, preference isn’t always subjective. Some things such as torque or engine power are quantifiable. Let’s look at some of the latest comparable models from each manufacturer, and see where the Lexus vs Lincoln debate currently stands. Lexus RX and the Lincoln MKC: The Basics The Lexus RX is Toyota’s luxury full-sized SUV. It’s been redesigned to offer attractive lines. Inside are premium features like hand-stitched steering wheel and seats. The Lexus RX comes in an RXL option which has a third row of seats, so it can comfortably seat six or seven people, depending on the … [Read More...]
If you are driving in sunny conditions in your 1969 Chevy Camaro, it makes good sense to wear an appropriate pair of sunglasses. On long journeys, sunglasses ensure that you don’t have to squint and so your eyes won’t get nearly as tired. Sunglasses also protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, up to 50% of which pass right through your windshield and side windows. Sun glare isn’t just a summer hazard, wet roads and snowy landscapes can be just as much of a problem as concrete or desert. It's worth giving some thought to the sunglasses that you use for driving because the wrong type could impair your vision rather than improve it. Large lenses and wrap around frames are best, micro frames or thick temples will obscure your all-important peripheral vision. The level of tint also needs taking into consideration: a 70%-80% tint will work well in strong sun but would dangerously limit your vision for night driving. Headlight glare can be very tiring at night, but anything more … [Read More...]
