Filling Stations-Fuel duty ‘holiday’ urged to help small garages survive – Telegraph.co.uk

Fuel duty ‘holiday’ urged to help smaller Filling Stations survive

The closures of small garages or filling stations

Is nothing new here in the UK and many other countries, including the USA (where the accompanying video was made). In my opinion they have been squeezed out by the greedy supermarket chains that decided to open up petrol filling stations on their car park areas.

The good thing about this is that this has reduced the price of petrol and diesel to the consumers, “you and me”. The bigger oil company sites such as BP have remained open offering the supermarkets competition with the prices. Another nail in the coffin for the small garages has been the development of mini supermarket attached to garage forecourt there will be many Filling Stations for Sale. This has now become very popular with the motorists, as they can now buy anything from magazines to logs for the fire.

The smaller filling stations do not have the room or probably the finance to run a shop on the smaller sites, not like the large companies who often have The Filling Station Restaurant on their own site or even a Filling Station Menu . The people who are really suffering are the ones that live in rural areas. They have to pay top price for their fuel because they are serviced by smaller filling stations, which have to pay more for their Fuel Prices in the first place, usually because they pay a premium from buying smaller amounts from the petrol and Diesel Fuel wholesaler and they also have to travel further.

 I have a friend that still operates two pumps from outside his MOT station/Filling Stations in a small village called Oxenhope in the beautiful country side near Howarth in the Bronte

Filling Stations

Small garages like this are closing down

country of Yorkshire, he tells me that he does not make a penny on the fuel and also has to pay for it when it is delivered, no credit account. Robert the owner says that he keeps selling it as a service to the community because most of them are his MOT customers anyway.

To conclude I think that this kind of thing is just progress. A few years ago we had a small shop on every street corner, now after most of them had closed down; the supermarkets are opening up small shops again “what comes around goes around” springs to mind and one day we may see the smaller garages and filling stations opening up again. Incidentally all the closed down filling stations have been turned into car washes, and appear to be very busy.

Hybrid Car That Runs on Air-New Peugeot Invention Better Than Batteries?:

 

Hybrid Car

New Peugeot Invention Better Than Batteries: A Hybrid Car That Runs on Air This new development from Peugeot-Citroen is yet another big development to compete… (RT @AutoSocial: JB Floyd liked JB Floyd’s blog post New Peugeot Invention Better Than …

Eric Roberts says…

The new cars should be fitted with normal batteries

Peugeot Citroen has had scientists and engineers. Therefore, locked away for the past two or three years. Because, they have come up with a car that is unique. Consequently, and will form the backbone of  Hybrid Car the cars of the future. Hence,without the use of Lithium-ion batteries. The new concept will be called the “Hybrid Air”. For this reason, the car will have a new Petrol and air hybrid drive-train. Thus, combined with a new modular platform. Furthermore, a completely new concept in car engineering. Specifically, a competitor for battery driven hybrid cars. That we see coming out of Japan and the USA.

The new Hybrid Car will have petrol engine. Hence, to drive in normal condition out of town driving. But when the car is driving in towns and cities. Thus, at below 43mph. For this reason, a hydraulic pump operated by compressed air takes over the petrol engine.Moreover, powers the car along with zero emissions. Plus and will be started by  conventional Car Batteries. Moreover, this Hybrid Car will also have an automatic gearbox.In addition, the transmission, pump and motor will be in the engine bay. Subsequently, with the compressed air tank running between the front seats. Simultaneously, the compressed air is used to drive the hydraulic motor. Which transfers the power to the front wheels. Therefore driving the Hybrid Car along.

Hybrid Car

Having been a garage owner for all my life.  I hope that they have thought of the problems that compressed air can have. Hence, people who work in the motor trade. Know too well about leaking pipes and the build-up of water. So that can cause problems later in the cars life say when the car is two or three years old, but then again I can remember when hydraulic oil pipes were first introduced and the older mechanics said they would never catch on, and we all know the rest.

The new Hybrid Car is expected to be shown in 2016. Hence, and will used on the Peugeot 208 or the Citroen C3 models. The new Hybrid Car will be expected to return fuel figures of over 95 mpg with very low emissions of 68g per kilometer.

Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem-Also a central Locking Problem an the same car.

Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem

Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem

Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem

Hi about a month ago we were left with a Hyundai i10. Consequently, the guy had a couple of problems with the car. Subsequently, the main problem was that he had an intermittent water leak. The guy thought it was from the engines radiator, but was not sure.

On his arrival he said that he had another problem. Hence, his central locking remote did not work. Of course, we sort of knew that the two were not linked. Consequently, we gave the keys to one of our courtesy cars and off he went to work.

As most people in the garage trade know. So, we have friends in other garages who are specialists in one brand of car. Because, we were not sure about the Hyundai’s lock problem, then we gave him a call. Jeff is his name from a local garage in Sowerby Bridge, a small town near Halifax, Yorkshire UK.

Jeff, worked with an apprentice and one of his specialties is of course, Hyundai cars. Of course Jeff is always eager to help and pass on anything he can to help. Here in Yorkshire, we like to feel that we are friendly people and help each other out. Especially, with specialist tools or technical information.

Hyundai EGR Coolant Pipe Problem-Also a lock problem

First thing he advised us was to change the battery. Accordingly, we fitted a Lucas 005L battery to the i10 as this was the correct replacement battery. Unfortunately, this did not cure the problem. Our Hyundai expert Jeff, then went on to explain that this was a common problem. Of course, he said that the remote just needed re-programming.

Because we did not have the Hyundai equipment, then we drove the car to Jeff’s garage. He kindly reprogrammed the remote and checked for other codes that may have caused the problem in the first place. Of course, he knew that he would need a favour from us and so did not charge us for the job.

However when the car was moved we did notice a wet patch. Hence from underneath the engine compartment. On close examination we spotted a fluid leak coming from a hose. Tracing the hose back we discovered that it was the EGR valve coolant hose that was leaking. Believe me it is a great relief when things go right.

As a result, we can spend hours diagnosing a fault or trying to find an oil or water leak. Fortunately this was something that the Hyundai main dealer kept in stock. Because it was a next day delivery, then we had to keep the car until the following day. The part arrived and was fitted Dale Linton. One of our mechanics. The customer collected his car and was a happy man. Consequently, we did not charge him for his failing lock problem he just paid for the new battery and the EGR valve coolant hose fitting.

Women Motorists-use cars as ‘second wardrobe’ – Telegraph

Beauty products and spare clothing are kept in the cars in case of emergency, a survey has revealed (Half of young Women Motorists #drivers use their #car as a ‘second wardrobe’ according to a recent survey @TeleMotoring

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

They sure do i think we all agree that most Women Motorists are caught out putting on their makeup. Some of them even do it while they are driving along in their cars!! well well.

Although this is not an offense on its own, such things as putting your make up on while driving and drinking and eating food comes under the heading of “CARELESS DRIVING”.

Apart from Women Motorists putting on makeup while driving , motorists can also be fined if they are caught messing around with their stereo or such other things as combing and brushing your hair . If you have one or both hands off the steering wheel while driving your car and are spotted by a police officer you can be prosecuted for careless driving. More reading…http://www.carrentals.co.uk/blog/10-illegal-things-we-all-do-when-driving.html

The fine for such an offense can be around the £200 mark and also comes with 6 points on your license. There is also a possibility that your car insurance will be increased, because when you have been fined , you must report the offense to your insurance company and they could increase your premiums. The offense of careless driving, according to the DVLA means that you were not in total control of your car and is considered to be a serious offense resulting in a fine and points.Women Motorists

Only the other week i noticed that Women Motorists in the cars  behind me was putting her make up on while we were stood at some traffic lights, when the lights changed to green, she was still putting her makeup on and missed the green light, i heard the cars behind her hooting at her but she just carried on with what she was doing.

Aeromobil takes to the skies: Is the age of flying car finally here …

Aeromobil-Flying car

eric roberts‘s insight:

Wow what a car, a FLYING CAR !!!

Is this the sort of thing that you would consider buying?. Closer to home a customer of mine has only just sold his helicopter, which was a very big surprise to me , that a guy who lives just outside Halifax actually owned and flew a helicopter. he used it for flying to business meetings and had a helicopter pad in his garden. What i am getting at is that if you lived near a small airport, such as Humberside, you could drive from Hull and fly this Aeromobil to Manchester or London and leave your car at home, avoiding the terrible traffic that we have today. I think there could be a good use for this car, if you have the money and live in the right place.

The car/plane is made in Slovakia and designed by Stefan Klein as long ago as 1970 taking over 20 years to develop. The flying car made its first test flight this week using the Aeromobil 2.5, the presume that this is the engine size, because they hope to increase to a 3.0 version.aeromobil

The Aeromobil has wings that fold away behind the cabin along a boom that houses the propeller shaft. When the flying car/plane is used as a car it can reach around the 100mph mark, and when it takes off it reaches a top speed of 124 mph using a Rotax 912 aircraft engine. In my opinion it is a great idea and although not a unique idea, it could tick the right boxes  for some business people who live in the right area.

Mobility Scooter Owners Batteries-Advantages Of Owning your own “MOBILITY SCOOTER “

Mobility Scooter Owners Batteries

Mobility Scooter Owners Batteries

Mobility Scooter Owners Batteries

If you are a disabled person. Using a mobility scooter. Then getting around in a town centre or in a shopping centre. For an hour at a time can be difficult. This can also apply if you are not feeling well, or if you are experiencing any type of pain. You can put the pain and the discomfort behind you by using a scooter. A scooter gives you the mobility you have been dreaming about so you can be more mobile and shop. From groceries, to holiday shopping, or just personal shopping you can take your mobility scooter along, and enjoy your day out  at the the shopping centre.

Mobility Scooter Batteries;Advantages Of Owning A mobility Scooter for disabled person are Vast

If you are disabled and use a mobility scooter getting around in a town centre or in a shopping centre for an hour at a time can be difficult, without the correct Mobility Scooter Batteries. This can also apply if you are not feeling well, or if you are experiencing any type of pain. You can put the pain and the discomfort behind you by using a scooter. A scooter gives you the mobility you have been dreaming about so you can be more mobile and shop. From groceries, to holiday shopping, or just personal shopping you can take your mobility scooter along, and enjoy your day out  at the the shopping centre.

Advantages Of Owning A mobility Scooter for disabled person are Vast

The advantages for the elderly and people with disabilities, of owning a scooter include the ability to be more independent. You probably would not want to wait for your children to take you shopping or do your shopping for you all the time, but with a mobility scooter, you can get out and about and do the shopping yourself (especially the ladies).

A scooter with good Mobility Scooter Batteries can be used to take you right into the store. If you live in town or city, near the store, you can ride your scooter to the store (weather permitting),then you can shop while riding the scooter and carry your goods home on your scooter. A  mobility scooter is a great way of giving those who are unable to walk due to illness or those who are unable to walk long distances without the ability to be self-dependent. I recently did an article about the large amount of these scooters there were in Benidorm Spain and they are also used in large numbers of mobility scooters in the USA.

While owning or renting your own scooter. So, you don’t have to disinfect the scooter in the store where you are shopping. Sometimes accidents and spills will happen such as a broken bottle or a burst packet of peas. Whilst in the retail setting leaving you with a scooter that may not be very clean,or sanitized. If you were to purchase your own scooter, you will feel more comfortable, and it would only need cleaning.

Using your own scooter with good Mobility Scooter Batteries, instead of renting also means you have the advantage of always having a scooter that has fully charged batteries and is ready to go. Often there are times when those who are disabled will enter a retail centre only to find the scooters batteries become flat and are out of power, and become useless. To give yourself the freedom of mobility with a fully charged scooter battery, buy your own scooter and leave all your worries behind you.

Owning your own mobility scooter must be the best way
Mobility Scooter Batteries

Mobility Scooter Batteries = freedom for the elderly and disabled

Owning your own scooter gives you the choice of  being familiar with your  scooter. . Riding a scooter you are not familiar with (a rented one).So, can at times be a little awkward. Especially, until you learn how to use the controls.

The retail scooters that you can rent at a shopping centre are big, bulky.Not cutting corners very well. Hence, by having your own scooter. Consequently, it is going to allow you the freedom to travel. Of course, especially in the retail setting. While still feeling at home on your own scooter

Therefore, you can make the seat adjustments. So, to fit your own body size and shape on the scooter. Whilst adjusting the handle bars and the controls to your personal liking. Knowing, that the scooter settings will stay that way.

Mobility Scooter Owners Batteries

Subsequently, there will be no need to keep adjusting the seat. Especially, after other people have been using it. Because you are the only one who is using your scooter.

Your personal scooter is just like your car, your personal transportation, and like a car you need a good set of Mobility Scooter Batteries.

Hybrid Car-That Runs on Air-Pressure and Not Batteries

Peugeot’s new technology will get you 117 miles per gallon. (Better Than Batteries: A Hybrid Car That Runs on Air http://t.co/3wz2KXjhlo)

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

New technology to compete with the big batteries Hybridshybrid car,peugoet batteries

This new development from Peugeot-Citroen is yet another big development to compete with the massive batteries and price tag of the earlier hybrid car. The beauty about this car is that the engine is almost a standard type engine that uses petrol (gasoline) and will be started by a standard Battery System along with uprated gearbox and special hydraulics. This is great news for us independent garage owners as it will give us a chance to repair these cars when they arrive in the aftermarket a few years down the line, a thing that I don’t believe will happen with the huge Lithium-Ion battery driven cars, that are to be leased to their owners.

The new hybrid car will be driven by the conventional engine when traveling any distance, but will reverts to the “Air power” when driving in cities and towns, when the air system will be activated when the car does less than 43 mph. It is also expected that the car will be capable of producing an average of just less than 129 miles to the gallon with upgrades towards 2020. Read more: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2266632/Car-runs-air-coming-soon-Peugeot-Citroen-unveil-new-117mpg-

The first hybrid car using this technology is expected to on the smaller Peugeot 206 ; although I don’t think that a decision has yet been made. The price of these new cars is going to be about £1000.00 cheaper than today’s battery powered hybrids. The hybrid car has been a closely guarded secret and has been under development for almost three years now at a research centre not far from the south of Paris. The car is expected to be a great success and will help the giant French car company to retain its place in the technology driven hybrid car market. The car will also use  standard batteries and will look no different to the standard models that we see today, as I said previously this will be a car that we can all service in the future which is good news for the independent garages out there.

To bring this article further forward, Peugeot , the French automaker revealed its Hybrid Air technology will be further revealed later this year at the Paris Motor Show. The vehicle that the new technology will be demonstrated on will be the Peugoet 208 hybrid car and not the Peugeot 206 that i stated earlier. This version of the Hybrid Air design will offer the car makers a fuel economy distance of 117 miles per gallon, which is an improvement on the figures that they announced last year. I believe that this technology could be a winner and will not involve the suspect lithium-Ion batteries, that other car makers are relying on.

Hydrogen Cell car-to be Ready in Two Years and Will Compete with Battery Electric Cars.

 Hydrogen Cell car to be Ready in Two Years

This is something that I have been writing about for a while now; the Toyota prototype has been unveiled to journalists from around the world. Toyota is expected to put this new technology vehicle a Hydrogen Cell car on sale in two years’ time.

Hydrogen Cell car

Hydrogen filling stations will be a common site on our forecourts in the near future along with other types of fuel ready for the Hydrogen Cell car

The new vehicle will be expected to be based on the Lexus HS a former Hybrid model week after Toyota confirmed aHydrogen Cell car project; this new Lexus  HS was seen being tested  in the heat of Death Valley, USA. One of the hottest places on earth. The car was also seen filling up from a re-fueling type truck which was heavily marked “HYDROGEN” , this now looks as if Toyota are well on their way in the development of this huge change in vehicle technology and totally opposite to the other car manufacturers, who are heading down the road of new car battery technology.

 

This new Hydrogen Cell car has already been driven by a few privileged motor journalists and the new Hydrogen Cell car has been given the thumbs up for the way that the vehicle handles, mainly due to the huge torque of the cars electric motors. Other  manufacturers are complaining that the use of this gas is not as green as the battery powered cars, mainly because the gas used in these cars is produced from natural gas, but you could argue that the electricity used to charge the battery cars is not green really because the electricity that recharges the hybrids batteries comes from dirty power stations using fossil fuels to make the electricity.

Surprisingly Toyota was not the first to use Hydrogen Cell car technology. The first car maker was their rivals Honda. In fact Honda developed a car based on the Honda FX as far back as 2008, 5 years ago. It is believed that Honda did not pursue with the project because there were no Hydrogen Cell car filling stations around at the time, and only 50 cars were built.

To service the gas driven cars there is already a network of  filling stations being built in Europe including the UK, where it is thought that deals have been struck with the large supermarket chains, to supply a pump on their fuel service forecourts. This and the addition of some new filling stations in London and hundred to be built in Germany will be music to the ears of Toyota, who I suspect will already know about these developments. 

All to be revealed at the Tokyo car show.

To conclude Toyota are planning to produce 10000 of these cars by the year 2017 and all will be revealed at the Tokyo car show. The Tokyo Motor Show will start on November 23rd when all will be revealed.

eric roberts‘s insight:

Toyota cars go ahead with Hydrogen fuel power

As a result of more advanced research. So, the hydrogen fuel cell technology has moved further on. Hence,

at this moment in time companies are setting up Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations all over Europe. One company that has been heavily involved is Air Liquide . Consequently,who are in the process of developing filling stations. Indeed have built 60 new Hydrogen fuel-cell cars filling stations across the World.

Air Liquide have said that Hydrogen fuel-cell cars can be filled in a few minutes and the equipment that is used to fill the car is much the same as a diesel or petrol car and is just as safe.

Here in the UK we are making forward moves to build a network of Hydrogen fuel-cell cars fuel filling stations and negotiations are taking place to use the network of supermarket filling stations to accommodate Hydrogen Fuel Cells pumps alongside the standard pumps used for petrol and diesel.

This move by Toyota will bring into play a battle of the green choices; one will be Hydrogen fuel-cell cars and the other lithium-ion technologies, very interesting to see who will come out on top.

Yorkshire Car drivers-BEWARE of the M62 Speed Camera Gantries

Yorkshire Car drivers BEWARE of the M62 Speed Cameras

I am a resident of Kirklees and have been a user of the M62 motorway ever since it was built. In my opinion it has been a great asset to the people of West Yorkshire and Lancashire, in fact I do not know what we would have done and how the roads would have coped without it.

Yorkshire Car drivers

Yorkshire Car drivers be aware Part of the M62 traffic management system in West Yorkshire

The big problem with the motorway, as we all know is the stretches between junction 25 (Brighouse turn off) and junction 27 (Gildersome turn off). Over the years this stretch has many accidents and hold ups, making it one of the major black spots on the UK motorways. It came as great relief to the Yorkshire Car drivers, “including myself”, when it was announced that this section of the M62 was to be upgraded and turned into a controlled system, similar to the one in Birmingham on the M 42 and part of the M 1 Motorway south of Sheffield.

The work began about three years ago and we were all subjected to a 50 mph speed limit and many delays due to accidents and vehicles breaking down. Eventually the work progressed and we started to see the rise of the gantries covered in Motorway Traffic Cameras over the road, which would be used to control the traffic in the various lanes. I could not wait and gradually the work was competed and the speed signs directing us to what speed we should be doing.

In my opinion I think the new system is really good and it is nice to see some development on the road system for the Yorkshire Car drivers in the North where I think that in the past we have been heavily neglected by various Governments in all fields of investment. As I drive all around the country I cannot believe the investment that has been poured into the South and places like Wales and Scotland, I truly think that we have been starved of money here in West Yorkshire at the hands of politicians to please other regions of the country.

However we must not complain the car driving population of Yorkshire have now got a new controlled section of the great M62, knowing that we will see less holdups and witness less delays.

Keep your car speed bellow 70mph?

There is however one thing that we should all watch out for, “DON’T TAKE YOUR CAR ABOVE THE 70 MPH LIMIT”. It is now known that when the gantry lights are off that the speed cameras are still working and have been “flashing” drivers who have been exceeding the speed limit. I am an older driver and rarely take my car over the limit, but there are thousands of Yorkshire Car drivers who think that the limit is now 80 mph. So when you are driving your car on this section of the M62 beware, the speed cameras are there to get you.

According to the Huddersfield Examiner “West Yorkshire Police refused to comment further but the Highways Agency has now confirmed the new £150 m overhead gantry system between Huddersfield and Leeds CAN catch speeding Yorkshire Car drivers, even when it is not being used to slow the traffic”…More Reading…http://www.examiner.co.uk/news/west-yorkshire-news/highways-chiefs-reveal-m62-cameras-6152759
