Prevent flat tire with "driving method". ~I will teach you how to prevent a flat tire~


How is your car? Is the engine working powerfully?
Do you wash the car, refuel, and check the engine oil, cooling water, tire pressure, etc. before going out? Trouble on the go is the worst.

Typical car troubles on the highway are "overheat" and "flat tires".
For those who use the highway frequently, checking the cooling water, or "cleaning", can prevent most of the overheating.
However, the prevention of flat tire is prevented by the usual "driving method".


1. Flat tire on the highway

The reason why there are many flat tire troubles on the highway is that you are entering the highway without knowing it with tires that are already flat.

Even if you step on a nail or screw and get a flat tire, if the air is not deflated, you are supposed to drive every day without knowing that it is a flat tire.

Then, when the tires are worn out, you will notice that the air has escaped, and when the tires rotate at high speed on the highway, the nails and screws will come off due to centrifugal force, and the nose air will come out and you will have a flat tire.

Therefore, when checking the air pressure, it is also necessary to check the tread surface of the tire.


2. Why does the flat tire?

Flat tire

Why do you get a flat tire?

Just stepping on a nail or screw will almost never stick to the tire. Stepping on a lying nail or screw from above is no different than stepping on a pebble. It is flipped up and rolled by the momentum stepped on. At this time, if you are unlucky and step on the pointed nail or screw in the direction of sticking to the tire, you will get a flat tire.

The basic rear tire of a car running normally has a flat tire.
That's right, "the nails and screws that bounced up in front stick in later" is common.People who often "flat tire in front" often say, "The distance between cars are short."

Your front tire is flat tire the nails and screws that the front car bounced up.
Also, the nails and screws that everyone stepped on and bounced off were thrown away and eventually fell toward the end of the road. Like pebbles and trash on the side of the road.

And compared to the surrounding cars, the car on the right side and the left side has more flat tires. It's easier to get a flat tire if you drive in a way that disturbs the convoy.


3. Keep in mind flat tire prevention driving

What is flat tire prevention driving?

"Ensure a sufficient distance between vehicles and drive in line with the vehicle in front."
"Do not drive on steps or cat's eyes"
It is driving that keeps these two things in mind. Yes, driving safely will prevent flat tires.

"Where was the flat tire?"
"Is the side of the tire cut or bulging like a lump?"
I haven't had a flat tire for over 10 years.

For those who often get a flat tire, please remember your usual driving such as "parking on the street", "distance between cars", and "disturbing the convoy".


4. Summary

Car trouble is a barometer of your driving and how you use your car.
To prevent troubles, keep in mind "care" and "safe driving".

Factors for improving fuel efficiency!

Factors for improving fuel efficiency!

How are you all doing?

Recently, the price of gasoline has risen, and we don't want to waste any money.

This blog, I would like to talk about the factors that improve fuel efficiency.


There are two main factors in improving the fuel efficiency of motorcycles and automobiles. It is how to maintain the vehicle on the hard side and how to drive on the soft side.


Maintenance is to keep good conditions the engine and tire and suspension of motorcycles and automobiles in good condition.

Especially if the engine is not in perfect condition, fuel efficiency will be considerably worse. It's easy to leave it alone until the warning light comes out or until there is an engine trouble. Diligent maintenance is important.


As for how to drive in terms of software, as I introduced before our blog, "self-help eco mode".

In the first place, fuel efficiency is the basic performance of the motorcycle and automobile, so if the usage and riding method are the same, it will not change significantly.


Even if the usage and riding method are the same, if the combustion efficiency of the engine is improved, the required power can be obtained with less fuel, and the fuel efficiency will be improved. In addition, if the combustion efficiency is improved, it will lead to get more powerful even with the same amount of fuel and the same number of revolutions.


Motorcycle makers and automobile makers are doing various researches such as how to mix fuel and air and the timing of combustion in order to improve combustion efficiency.


It's always good if the vehicle is in a new condition, but as the years go by, we use my car every day and various deteriorations progress. I think everyone is doing regular oil changes, air filter and battery changes, and so on. Under such circumstances, "AdPower" was created by researching and developing the effects of static electricity generated on the engine on engine combustion. Fuel and air are required for engine combustion, but "AdPower" suppresses static electricity in the air cleaner, improves the air flow to a better state, and improves engine combustion.

The effects obtained by improving combustion efficiency include more power, fuel efficiency improvement, exhaust gas reduction, and reduction of carbon adhesion inside the engine.

Good fuel economy has a positive effect in many places.

See you next time.

Warming up to drive your car for a long time 2 〜Driving break-in second hands car〜

Warming up to drive your car for a long time 2 〜Driving break-in second hands car〜

In the previous bog, I introduced "How to drive break-in a new car".

Following the new car, it is "Engine break-in second hands car edition"!


1. Review about "break-in"

Before introducing the break-in of second hands cars, I would like to review the "break-in".

Break-in is "one of the warm-ups for driving your car for a long time".

Just as we do preparatory exercises to avoid injury and to do our best before we exercise, cars need preparatory exercises.

Check the following blog for "break-in of new car".


2. Break-in driving method course [second hands car]

There is almost no problem with automobiles regardless of whether they are automatic or manual engine, and all oil changes and air cleaner changes are OK.

If you have done the above exchange at the time of delivery, you do not have to do anything

Check the following note for "oil change".

The problem is the motorcycle.

Unlike cars, motorcycles are quite delicate.

"Carbon" and "sludge (dust)" may have accumulated inside the engine, causing it to malfunction.

At this time, change the oil, air cleaner, and spark plug to keep the engine hot at high rpm. Then, it is emptied to blow off the carbon in the combustion chamber.

The inside of the engine will be cleaned by the cleaning effect of the oil.

After that, if you change the oil early, you will feel better.

If that doesn't work, use an "injection cleaner" or "cab cleaner".


>>Word explanation

・ Oil change

"Engine oil" has a role of lubrication and cooling in the engine. Oil change is one of the essential maintenances to make the engine longer life.

・ Air cleaner replacement

An "air cleaner (air filter)" that filters the air taken into the engine. If the air is dirty, it will not burn well or soot will come out.

・ Spark plug replacement

A "spark plug" that plays the role of ignition necessary for the engine to run. Deterioration of spark plugs affects combustion, acceleration, engine start, etc.

・ Injection cleaner

A cleaner exclusively for "injectors" that supplies fuel such as gasoline into the engine.

・ Carburetor cleaner

A cleaner exclusively for "carburetors" that appropriately provides a mixture of fuel and air according to different driving conditions while controlling it.


3. Summary

We introduced "engine break-in" twice, last time and this time.

It's been a long time, but this completes the warm-up for the engine!
