Have a slow leak in your tire? How letting it go will cost you.

If you have a tire that has a slow leak and you find yourself filling it over and over, putting off taking it in for repair, don't.  It will cost you more in the long run.  Even though you keep filling the tire, most of the time the pressure is too low to maximize your fuel economy.  A slow leak could cost you up to half a tank of gas per week.  Spend the money to fix the tire, it will be a great deal cheaper!

Fastest Production Car in the World

Currently, the fastest production car in the world is the Bugatti Veyron.  Not only the fastest, but the most expensive at over $1.4 million dollars.  This car boasts about 1000 horsepower and will do 0 to 60 in about 2 and a half seconds.  Wow!  It will do 0 to 125 in a little over 7 seconds.  At a top speed of 253 mph, it would run out of gas in 12 minutes.  This is all because of it's kick a** W16 quad turbo engine.  What Bugatti, which is actually owned by Volkswagon, did to get all that horsepower, was basically join two twin turbo V8 engines together to form the W configuration.  

I want one!
