Of course you’ve seen them quasi-race cars with the biggest exhaust systems making the most thundering noises while parking at your lot. For some, this is just way irritating while for others, well, they just have to put up or shut up.
It’s true that selling stacks of newspapers you’ve accumulated during the past couple of months or so won’t make you rich, or really mount too much of an extra income. But think about the stacks of old newspapers you would have if you were to collect and haul away for the people in your neighborhood–say a ten-pound stack of newspapers from each house on your street every Saturday. The picture changes, doesn’t it?
EFFICIENCY – There is a lot of thermochemical energy in gasoline, but there is even more energy in water. The DOE has quoted about 40%, 50 it is probably much more than that. Most people are unaware that ‘internal combustion’ is DEFINED as: a thermo-vapor process; as in ‘no liquid in the reaction’; AND most of the gasoline in a standard internal combustion engine, is ACTUALLY CONSUMED cooked and finally broken down) IN THE catalytic converter, which happens AFTER the fuel has been not-so-burnt in the engine. Sadly, this means that most of the fuel we use in this way, is used only to cool down the combustion process, rather than using a cleaner and more efficient means to do so.
Mobile phones should never be thrown into the trash as they contain a lot of harmful substances: mercury, lead, and arsenic, to mention just a few. These chemicals may either leach into underground water or release toxic gases.
Make sure you clean and rinse all plastic bags and containers before catalytic converter recycling to avoid any contaminants going into the recycling process. This makes it easier for the recycling plant to undergo reprocessing of the plastic material.
There have really not been enough failures to really pin point a limit for the various power-train components. The motor could fail at factory power levels if it was running dangerously lean. But when well tuned, the motors internals (Pistons, Rods, Crank, Head Gasket etc) are reliable to 700rwhp. But of course at these power levels, if the engine is not set-up and tuned properly, it is literally a bomb waiting to go off, however this would be just as true with a built motor. Some owners have pushed their stock internals to the limit and have well exceeded 800rwhp, and even approached 900rwhp. I still don’t understand how such an over built motor made it past the bean counters at Toyota Corporate.
The first is to canal out the wastes from the process of burning so that the engine is able to continue with the process and as a result performs smoothly. A good exhaust system permits the waste products to get out of the system rapidly. If these waste products get clogged in the engine, then the whole system will choke. it also helps to reduce the noise that is produced in the engine. The waste gases and compounds go out of the engine at very high pressure. If these gases were allowed to escape from the engine directly, then it would generate tremendous amount of noise. So in order to reduce the noise, exhaust systems channels the gases via metal plates and tubes known as muffler. The muffler ensures that the noise is minimized.
Recycling will become a way of life if you take the time to make it part of your daily routine. Get in the habit and teach by example. Soon your family will become more conscious of the waste they create, and you will be on your way to having a green family!
