900 Million Oil Changes Every Year!
Let’s do some math, shall we? In 2007, drivers here in the United States registered more than 254 million passenger vehicles. On average, Americans like you & me will drive our passenger cars & trucks just over 10,000 miles per year, and they get an oil change every 3,000 miles. This means that there’s pretty much 900 million oil changes that happen per year.

The different models of cars & trucks take different amounts of oil, but most engines typically require 5-7 quarts.

The First New & Used Tires Were A Lot Like Bike Tires
Many decades & decades ago, drivers had to replace their 15” Used Tires & New Tires way more frequently than we have to today. There’s things like radial belts, synthetic and natural rubber components, body plies, & layers that give today’s new & used tires the lifespan that they have.

Did You Know That Windshield Wipers Were Invented By Woman?
Her name was Mary Anderson & she invented the windshield wipers in 1903. She was paying a visit to New York City when she noticed that there was a streetcar driver who had to keep his window open in order to reach out to his windshield and wipe the water off with a squeegee - manually. Anderson had received a patent for the windshield wiper,but she couldn't sell the invention to the auto companies because they claimed that the device did not have commercial value.

Now look how much they come in handy.

Six Fluids For Your Car
There are six different fluids that you need for your car:
- Motor Oil
- Coolant
- Power Steering Fluid
- Brake Fluid
- Transmission Fluid
- Windshield Washer Fluid

It’s really important that you always check & replenish these fluids according to the car's maintenance schedule.

Antilock Brakes Were Invented 50 Years Ago!
Even though the Antilock Brakes are considered to be a fairly recent safety feature that comes on most passenger cars that are manufactured today, antilock brakes are something that have been around for half a century - remember, a century is 100 years; half is 50.

There’s a British Company that’s named “Road Research Laboratories” & they created an anti-skid braking system in 1958. The system was called “Maxaret” and was used in production in 1966 on the Jensen FF Sports Sedan - whatever kind of car that is. In the beginning, Maxaret and the other antilock braking systems that were invented had been too expensive for automakers. Then there came some advances in computerized braking now make it possible to get antilock brakes on almost any new car.

Even though you may have found this article not so “fun” like I said it was going to be in the beginning, it’s something useful that you can use for your 15” Used Tires and your brakes and the other stuff that I mentioned.

Now can you say that I helped?
