Deep Cycle Batteries-This type of battery can be used to start your car.

Deep Cycle Batteries

Deep Cycle Batteries; You need more amps than a starter battery

Deep Cycle Batteries. This is a sort of question in reverse. Most people try to use car or leisure batteries.Hence, to fit their scooters or golf trolleys. But it is possible to use an AGM (Absorbed Glass Matting) type to start a car. Thus,this blog is aimed mainly at the motorhome/camper type customer.Therefore, that are unsure of the kind to fit.This type of battery is sealed and so can be installed on its side if required. Indeed some car makers.Of course, now provide a type of AGM Deep Cycle Batteries one to the interior of the car. Some of the Mazda range are fitted with a sealed one inside the car. Indeed underneath the driver’s seat. Because in the case of spillage during an accident.

Deep Cycle Batteries

Optima Red Top battery-Deep Cycle Batteries

The general rule when fitting an AGM  to a car is to increase the number of amps. Because of the cranking amps in a regular car battery. Are higher than those in an AGM battery. The general rule is. To fit a battery with about 20 to 25% more power in amps than a regular car starter battery. Genuine AGM deep cycle batteries are available in “Optima batteries”, from www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk

Deep Cycle Batteries

The modern car engine with electronic ignition and fuel injection does not need as much power to crank up the engine as the older cars; this means that modern engines do not require as large a cranking amps as they used to and therefore is much less important as it used to be. However, vehicles including leisure vehicles are now fitted with power guzzling electric appliances that are more suited to using deep cycle batteries. Do not forget that the deep cycle can be totally drained and then re-charged and recover fully, but a car battery may not fully recover if totally discharged.

It will not hurt to fit Deep Cycle Batteries as a starter provided you up the amps.

If in doubt many companies now make a type of crossover battery called a leisure battery in different amps depending on how big the vehicle and amount of power the battery requires, this kind of battery is available online in Tungstone batteries and Lucas brands online at www.batteriesontheweb.co.uk. Another kind of car now uses the AGM battery, known as the Start-stop system. These cars are now getting very popular because they automatically stop and start when the car comes to a stop, this saves energy and pollution, and by 2016 a significant number of cars will be fitted with this system, using AGM batteries.

Michelin Tyres Success Story- the great Success Story of the renowned French tyre company

Michelin Tyres Success Story

Michelin Tyres Success Story

Eric Roberts 24-7-2011.

Part 2; The great Michelin Tyres X radial car tyre was “born.”

The next significant milestone for Michelin was the introduction of carbon black in the rubber compound mixture, this not only gave them their black colour but changed the chemical

Michelin Tyres Success Story

The combination of the compound which resulted in the greater longevity in their life. This change happened in around 1917 and in 1919 came the introduction of parallel textile cords this would be known as the “comfort” tyre a few years later and was to become the first low pressure one. Later in 1935 yet other improvements were made, and the “Super-comfort” tyre was born. This procedure enabled tyres to work at even lower pressures for a more comfortable ride; these were the first of their kind in the world. These improvements were of great benefit to Michelin tyres, leading to their next great innovation.

The next great Michelin innovation was to become a World leader and set a standard for the rest of the tyre manufacturers to try and follow. Known to be the Michelin X tyre.

Michelin part owned the then ailing French carmaker Citroen and developed the tyre partly for the new Citroen 2CV. The Worlds first radial was born, the plies that ran from bead to bead were of a textile material, but the tread belt that ran radial around the tyre bead of steel. The French tyre maker could not believe what it had created. Indeed, cross plays the Michelin “X” gave better handling, better cornering, better braking. Michelins were giving double the mileage compared across-ply” tyre.   They gave a much lower fuel consumption and because of the flexible and resilient side walls gave much-improved comfort to the ride of the car, a truly “great invention”.

Michelin Tyres Success Story

Steel belted tyres were the World standard and was creating interest from European car makers. So much so that Lancia became the first car manufacturers to use the Michelin on their Aurelia model. The pattern was soon to be followed by Mercedes and on their 2CV models.

While this was all happening in Europe, the Americans were pursuing a different tyre strategy, but this is in part three. Arthur W Savage was the first man to invent and patent the radial, but when his patent ran out Michelin were the first to pick it up and develop into the “X”. His American contemporaries were not interested in the radial tyre, so the innovation went to Europe and Michelin.

Mini Run Flat Tyres-Definitly an Improvement to road safety- KULR-TV

run flat tyres

Angie’s List: Mini Run Flat Tyres

KULR-TV

Many new models are now equipped with inflator and sealant kits or run flat tires which are designed to go at slower speeds for 50 miles or more after a tire has been punctured.

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Mini Run Flat tyres are an interesting subject.

The problem in my eyes is that cars were getting bigger and faster, and at the same time the car makers were being pressured by governments to make their cars more fuel efficient and greener.

This meant shedding weight and creating engines that were controlled by computers to really hammer down the emissions caused by burning fossil fuels (gasoline or petrol in the

run flat tyres

How run flat tyres work

UK). The car companies looked at all sorts of ways to reduce the weight and even the tyre companies looked for ways of making tyres lighter in weight, and indeed they succeed.

BMW come up with the Mini Run Flat Tyres

They also came up with the Mini Run Flat Tyres. This would mean that cars would no longer have a spare, because when the tyre on a car had a sudden drop in pressure (puncture) then the car could drive on, albeit at a slower speed (50 mph) until the tyre was changed. The positives are that the car would not deviate and carry on driving in the normal way and therefor not causing an accident and much safer than a standard radial tyre, also you would not have to get out of the car on a rainy night to change the wheel when you had a puncture.

The drawbacks are the cost of replacing these tyres is much higher than a standard tyre, A new Mini Run Flat Tyres is required after each incident, and on long journeys should you have the need to want a new tyre, then you only have fifty miles to have the Mini Run Flat Tyres fixed. Many tyre companies no longer repair Mini Run Flat Tyres.

In the States the gap between some towns and cities can be hundreds of miles. So you pays your money and takes your choice ?

Renault French automaker can cut off your battery if you don’t pay

Renault

Renault,battery

Post updated  22/3/2014 Eric Roberts

Last year Tesla dealt with its first real scandal, the so-called “bricking” of batteries that are allowed to run entirely out of charge. But what about a car company (Renault)that could brick a car’s battery on purpose?

 

eric roberts‘s insight:

Cutting off your car battery

This is known as “bricking” and stems from Renault keeping an eye on their customers who do not make a payment. This is allegedly in the small print under the French car companies “rented battery” agreement.

Renault battery

Renault servicing in Halifax Yorkshire UK

Also in the service agreement. It is alleged that Renault has the right to halt the possible charging of the battery. When the rental contract comes to an end. Apparently, this also includes the same penalties if you fail to make a payment.Thus, on your car agreement, making the car impossible to drive

I wonder what would happen. In the case of say a mess up with paperwork.Accordingly, if the payments from the bank may go wrong.Therefore, would Renault then cut off your battery supply. What a mess that would be to sort out. Hence, we all know that these large banks and credit companies do make mistakes. Naturally, you could be stranded anywhere and it would not be your fault?. The mind boggles.

Motorcodes new warranty scheme

Hi- to be a member of Unipart car Care centres, we must also be a member of motorcades. Motorcades garage network members have to be vetted by the RAC.

A qualified guy comes to check us from the RAC (Now the AA) and examines our garage and our garage system to see if it conforms to certain standard. This is to ensure that the standard of our workmanship and procedures are up the the high standards that Motorcodes expects.

Motorists should always look out for the nearest motorcodes garage in their area to ensure good workmanship with a guarantee that you can take up motorcodeswith motorcodes should there be a dispute.

To cap it off Motor codes Garage of the Year also have a fair price policy and we always keep the old parts for the customer to look at, all very honest and above board. Motorcodes are all now part of the UK trading Standard organisation. They have also moved from the RAC to the AA for depot accreditation.
