Car Driving Tip of the Month
(August 2017)
COMBINE TRIPS

Planning your errands and activities in advance will increase your car’s fuel efficiency and save you some cash. Fuse your errands into one trip, and try to combine it with an activity. Stop at the grocery store on the way home from work. Pick-up the dry cleaning before you head to yoga class.

Taking short trips back and forth not only puts extra stress on your car, with the current high gas prices, it also puts stress on your wallet. Extra trips can use up to twice as much fuel than a longer integrated trip covering the same distance. Not only that, but planning your trip ahead of time allows you to pick shorter rotes and ones that avoid gridlock, and wasteful idle time.

2017 Genesis G90 Adds Aspirational Luxury to Our Four Seasons Fleet (Thu, 17 Aug 2017 07:01:39 +0000)

A Korean luxury car? Does that sound a bit odd to your ear? It might. It wasn’t so long ago that most folks looked a bit askance at Toyota for launching its Lexus brand. And you might not know it, but Hyundai has been building luxury cars for about 8 years now—the Equus and the...

By Design: Genesis GV80 (Thu, 17 Aug 2017 04:01:56 +0000)

Athletic Elegance is the design language for Hyundai Group’s Genesis GV80 concept car. Or so said the company’s image wranglers in an overblown press release issued during April’s New York auto show. Maybe so, but the slightly to greatly inflated convex surfaces of the hydrogen fuel-cell SUV are more on the zaftig side. Which is...

Top Six Classic Can-Am Racers at the 2017 Monterey Motorsports Reunion (Wed, 16 Aug 2017 19:12:22 +0000)

The Can-Am group is likely one of the louder, more brutish groups that will take to the track during the entirety of the 2017 Rolex Motorsports Reunion. Featuring snarling engines, these cars are characterized with their heavy use of downforce, insane wings, fat race tires, and velocity stacks sticking out of the rear decklid, just...
