Avoid running your car on fumes if possible

What happens when you drive with an empty fuel tank?

You are, perhaps, a brave individual. You like to take reasonable risks in your life, and with certain risks come rewards. A good time to not take risks, though, is while you’re behind the wheel. Driving should be fun, sure, but it must also be safe. A common problem you may run into while driving is running low on gas. Your fuel tank is nearly empty, so says your instrument panel. You may think you can make it on the fumes inside the tank for a while before filling up, but that is a bad idea. What happens when you drive with an empty fuel tank? Read on!

Why do vehicles have front grilles?

When you are shopping around for a new car and judging the exterior design, what stands out to you the most?

Those updates include some tweaks to the front grille. Why do vehicles have front grilles? Is there really a purpose? Let’s take a closer look. Read the rest of this entry >>

The new 4Runner SUV can haul loads of your gear

How much cargo capacity does the 2017 Toyota 4Runner have?

It is important to remember what the S and the U in SUV stand for: sport and utility. Sport utility vehicles are not meant to just be taken to and from the grocery store once a week. The true purpose of an SUV is to provide the means of travel for people who have adventurous spirits—people who want to escape into the vast outdoors and see the magic and wonder of the world. Of course, not every day can be an adventure like that. Some days require more mundane tasks, and if your life is full of both the daily grind and weekend journeys, an SUV is a great option for you. One such SUV is the 4Runner from Toyota. This powerful vehicle provides ample strength and space to use as you please. How much cargo capacity does the 2017 Toyota 4Runner have? Read on!

What is Toyota Long Ways?

By now you have probably seen that Toyota has taken the old Scion FR-S and recycled it into a new beast released this year, the 2017 Toyota 86. The new sports car is a fierce and sleek automobile, something for people who used to play with toy cars or pretend they were driving on a race track (even making VROOM, VROOM sounds) when they were kids. This is the kind of car that makes driving fun again, the kind of car that is not meant to just sit in the driveway until you have to go to the store to pick up some ice cream. This is the type of car you specifically make time for. The drive itself is the errand, the reason for leaving your house. For that reason, Toyota has developed a new app specifically for drivers of the 86, called Long Ways. What is Toyota Long Ways, exactly? Let’s take a closer look. Read the rest of this entry >>
