The Benefits of an Electric Car – DIY Home Conversion Project

With the economy problems that the world faces today, many people are looking for a different type of fuel. The old fossil fuel prices are still so high it puts even the middle class families in a bind. The fossil fuels are a danger to our planet and us as well, causing much of the global warming in the world. If people would have used the electric cars that were developed many years ago, we would not be in the shape we are in today, by having to depend on oil companies for fuel. Just in the last two years, people have started to look into the development and the future of electric cars, and many are converting their gasoline-powered vehicles into electric automobiles, by using an electric conversion kit.

Some people said that electric cars were more of an inconvenience than a virtue. Some of the believe are that electric cars were slow and they could not go very far. However, better electric cars have been developed and some can get up to 100 mph on the highways. These cars are expensive and a new electric car conversion kit has been developed that will help you save money. Once you have retrofitted your new completely electric car with the conversion kit, you will have a completely pollution free motor. This will end your car fuel bill altogether.

Yes, it will cost some money. However, new technologies have enabled many to write Ebooks, telling people where to find free or cheap parts and how to install them. With a Do It Yourself (DIY) electric car conversion project, your investment would be little over $500.00. If you drive your car substantially, you will make that money back in three months from the money you saved not spending it at the local gas station.

Water Fuel Vehicle Conversion

There is some debate going on about how to make an efficient and cost effective water-fuel system for vehicles, as well as home appliances. Many people are quite skeptical about water fuel systems, HHO or hydro-fuel technology (or whatever you wish to call it) for domestic use. However, there are numerous companies beginning to offer water-fuel kits which can be adapted to vehicles. There are also manuals guiding the consumer on how to do it himself. Guides are great. With them you get the choice between a DIY project or installing a kit.

Here, we will attempt to explain the concept and technical workings of water-fuel and HHO systems and then investigate what the consumer should be looking for when evaluating the various systems on offer. Finding the right system for you is all important. Make sure you check out at least half a dozen. Also look for offers which promise a refund if you’re not happy. That way, you’ll never lose out.

Frequently, water-fuel technology is founded on splitting water actually in situ, on board a vehicle. It then utilizes the resulting split hydrogen and oxygen gases not to power the vehicle, but rather to increase the efficiency of its gasoline (petroleum) combustion. Vehicles running solely on water encounter some basic difficulties which are problematical to surmount, while a system that reduces gas consumption maintains the vehicle’s performance while increasing miles per gallon by up to 50%. That’s good going.

Most water-fuel technology is designed as do-it-yourself systems. That’s nothing to worry about; it’s what normally happens with great new ideas in their infancy. You should find that any decent system will be especially engineered with beginners in mind, for people with no or little automotive experience. Generally no specialist auto tools should be required and costs are kept to an absolute minimum. A finished and fully functional system should come in at a price tag of under $120. Installation time is normally well under an hour if instructions are followed properly.

Most importantly, any decent HHO system should be able to be removed within a minute or two, without in any way affecting the normal or pre-existing operation of the vehicle. No modifications to the factory-installed engine should be required, nor to their computer and fuel injection systems. Virtually anyone should be able to install an HHO system and with no concerns that it will in any way adversely affect their vehicle if they decide they don’t want it. It effectively means anyone can have a go.

As far as the water fuel technology is concerned, if you’ve never fitted such a device before, it is probably best to look for a unit where the electrolyzer, bubbler and water reservoir have all been combined. It will save time and complications. You can find suppliers via the link at the end of this article.

Keep an eye out for systems incorporating coiled or spiraled electrode wires as opposed to flat plates or spiraled plates. The magnetic vortex generated by a coil improves water splitting. This means that less power will be drawn from the vehicle’s electrical system, improving overall efficiency and reducing costs even further.

A number of major factors all complement each other in producing an efficient split of water into hydrogen and oxygen. These include direct current flowing via electrode wires to the water, the magnetic vortex produced by the shape of the electrodes, along with the vacuum caused by the engine. All these factors work to produce a more complete and thus effective combustion.

So what if combustion is improved? What’s the big deal? Well, two things are obvious. Better combustion equals better MPG which, in turn, equals a heavier wallet at the end of each week. And secondly, improved combustion means fewer emissions and thus less pollution.

Let’s have a look at a couple of facts. Virtually all modern-day gas powered internal combustion engines are only around 75% efficient. Improve that figure to very near 100% and the financial benefits become obvious. Then, around 80% of gas used in an average family car goes not to power the vehicle at all, but, because of the design, is instead unburnt, producing pollution and carbon emissions.

Hybrid water and gas powered motoring is now so easy, cheap and risk free, it is a wonder that so few of the population have taken advantage of its financial and environmental benefits. You may want to check out more of the facts at the blog quoted below.

Fuel Efficient Ford Vehicles

In recent years there has been a trend toward preserving the environment and that trend has crept its way into every facet of technology, including vehicle technology. Car companies must meet the high demand for fuel efficient vehicles and hybrids which save drivers gas and reduce their carbon footprint. In 2010 an amazing lineup of fuel efficient Ford vehicles was released that has many car shoppers in a frenzy. Not only are these vehicles great for saving gas and preserving the environment, but they come with great technology and safety features which make them a pleasure to drive.

The Fusion Hybrid and the Escape Hybrid are two of the most popular Ford vehicles for fuel efficiency. The 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid can go over 700 miles between stops for gas and gets an EPA-estimated 34 mpg highway. Equipped with the SYNC In-car Connectivity System, the Fusion allows drivers hands-free access to mp3 music, mobile contacts, and Bluetooth devices. The SmartGauge Cluster with EcoGuide teaches you how to get the most out of your hybrid vehicle by helping you to increase your driving efficiency. The Escape Hybrid offers all of the benefits of an SUV along with outstanding fuel economy which reaches up to 44 mpg in full electric mode. In addition to the SYNC In-car Connectivity System, the Escape Hybrid also features SIRIUS satellite radio and a 10GB hard drive to store your personal music collection.

The Ford Focus Sedan is another favorite among new Ford vehicles which achieve excellent fuel efficiency. At 140 horsepower the Focus boasts 35 mpg and great performance. Not only is this vehicle fuel efficient, but even its seats are environmentally friendly made from bio-based foam. The Ford Taurus features the all-new 3.5 L EcoBoost direct injection V6 engine that achieves the fuel economy of a V6 engine and the performance of a V8. This vehicle is designed to inspire an athletic assertiveness with lines that convey power and agility. The Ford Taurus is definitely not your ordinary sedan.

No matter what type of vehicle you prefer to drive, the 2010 lineup of Ford vehicles has a little something for everyone. From the on-the-go mom who needs the cargo space and fuel efficiency of the Escape Hybrid to the young professional who likes the sleek design of the Fusion, anyone who tries out a Ford is sure to like it. Not only are the new Ford vehicles as powerful as ever, but they have all the fuel efficient and technological features any driver could ever dream of.
