Car Driving Tip of the Month
(July 2018)
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.

EL SEGUNDO, California — Some years back, I made a good living writing about inexpensive cars for a web site that I won’t name because their head honchos changed our contracts to screw us out of residuals just before laying us off.

Six Favorites from the Goodwood 2018 Cartier Style et Luxe (Tue, 17 Jul 2018 23:45:33 +0000)

The Festival of Speed, at its heart, is a motorsports event. Most participating cars are run hard, sporting black exhaust soot, dirt, and tire scrub from multiple runs up the Goodwood hill. Because of this, the FoS is refreshingly free of the snootiness that accompanies events like Pebble Beach and Villa d’Este—it’s more a show...
