Ferrari’s latest Formula 1 engine is complemented by a new fuel from Shell that is estimated to be worth more than 20% of the upgrade’s performance gain. The introduction of V6 turbo-hybrid engines in 2014 placed great emphasis on complex energy recovery systems but manufacturers have continued to make significant strides with internal combustion engine technology. Shell has brought a new fuel to the Belgian Grand Prix that has been developed in tandem with Ferrari’s latest V6 and maintains its contribution of “over 20%” towards performance gains. “This circuit will exaggerate the difference because it’s longer and power-demanding, which is a good thing,” Shell motorsport technology manager Guy Lovett told Autosport. “Over the past three seasons, through our fuel and lubricants development work, we’ve contributed to over 20% of Ferrari’s power unit gain in performance. You always expect to make big gains at the start … [Read more...] about New Shell fuel estimated to be worth 20% of Ferrari engine upgrade

My car’s check-engine light came on for a problem with the oxygen sensor, which I purchased and replaced, but it just came back on again. What should I do? Q. My car’s check-engine light comes on, then goes off, and now it is back on. I had a test done at local auto shop. It showed a code of PO138, which indicates a problem with the oxygen sensor. I purchased and replaced the oxygen sensor, but the light never went out. I contacted the mechanic who services my vehicle, and he said codes don’t always indicate what’s wrong. What should I do? A. Computer fault codes can sometimes be misleading even to the best technician. There is a specific troubleshooting procedure that needs to be followed for correct diagnosis and repair. The sensor will never work correctly if there is a problem with the wiring to and from the sensor. A technician will usually check for proper voltage and grounds to the sensor. Even a new sensor with a faulty ground circuit will not function … [Read more...] about Why is my check-engine light on?
Cruisers are such an American thing, we almost tend to raise an eyebrow when manufacturers from any other part of the world launch one. Especially Japan. The land of the rising sun is known better for its manic sportsbikes, dirt bikes and what not, and cruisers are perhaps the last form of the motorcycle you expect a bike maker like Kawasaki to offer. Kawasaki has had its Vulcan series of cruiser on sale internationally for really long now though and has brought its Vulcan S to our shores. What's even more interesting is that the Vulcan S is powered by the same engine as the Kawasaki Ninja 650 and promises to bring the levels of precision, finesse and refinement that Kawasaki is known for, to the middleweight cruiser space. With the launch of the Kawasaki Vulcan S, has the cat been set amongst the pigeons? The Kawasaki Vulcan S is the newest addition to the middleweight cruiser segment in India and is styled unconventionally, but looks appealing from most angles Design and engineering … [Read more...] about 2018 Kawasaki Vulcan S road test review
There appears to be no end to the SUV sales boom that has gripped the auto industry for more than a decade, with almost all size categories surging ahead of 2017’s totals. And it doesn’t seem to matter which end of the scale you might be looking at, everything remains on the up and up, though it’s the medium category that’s by far the most popular. It’s also as difficult as ever to choose between make, model and variant, given the sheer number of SUV manufacturers involved – around 31 in total, and of those there are at least seven carmakers battling it out amongst premium SUVs with a price tag of 40-grand or more. They’re not all the same size, though, ranging from the visually diminutive Audi Q2 to the slightly larger BMW X1, Jaguar E-Pace and upcoming Volvo XC40 – all of them classed as small SUVs. There are others too, like the aging Audi Q3, all-new BMW X2, Infinity Q30/QX30, Mini Countryman and of course the Range Rover Evoque. … [Read more...] about 2018 Audi Q2 2.0 TFSI quattro S tronic sport v BMW X1 xDrive25i comparison
