With today's unstable fuel prices, it's important for us motorists to get the most out of our cars. That is why Michelin has these Top 5 Tips to help us save on gas and get the most mileage out of our fuel. 
 
Make sure your tires are properly inflated
Under-inflated tires have a higher rolling resistance, and requires more fuel. Make it a practice to check your tire pressure at least once every month to improve gas mileage by more than 3 percent. Remember to let the tires cool down before taking measurements to avoid getting a false reading, since heat increases pressure.

Perhaps no design house is more storied or better known than the House of Pininfarina (Pinin SpA). This Carrozeria has been responsible for some of the most iconic automobile designs of all time, including the Ferrari Testarossa, the Maserati Quattroporte, and the Ferrari Dino
 
But Pinin has not always been about supercars. The houses credits include such notable cars as the MGB GT and the achingly beautiful Peugeot 406 Coupé. Even the lowly Hyundai Matrix wears the coveted Pininfarina badge. Be sure to take a look next time you see one. This flexibility has helped ensure the success and longevity of the design firm, and is testament to the quality of leadership Sergio lent to the house that bears his name.

Starting June 1, 2012, Shell's Super Premium and V-Power fuels will be no more. That's because they've reformulated the blend and given it a shot of Nitro+. Let me introduce to you Shell's new line of fuels: V-Power Nitro+ Gasoline, V-Power Nitro+ Racing, and V-Power Nitro+ Diesel
 
Shell's latest generation of premium performance fuels are concocted to help improve engine performance and deliver more power compared to the old fuel it effectively replaces. And working as fast as cars they power, they're designed to work instantly in your engine from the first fill. But contrary to the name, V-Power Nitro+ does not contain nitrous oxide, otherwise known as Nitro.

Chevrolet introduced its very first pick-up - the Series 490 - way back in 1918. It got its name from its price tag of $490 and was slated up against the Model T which was sold at $495 at the time. The Series 490 had a 2.8L four-cylinder engine that could propel it to a maximum speed of 48 km/h and came standard with electric horns, a speedometer, ammeter, dome lights, and headlight dimmers - features we take for granted these days, but they were at the forefront of engineering 94 years ago. By the end of its seven year production run, Chevrolet was able to sell over 700,000 examples of the Series 490. Now, in 2012, the bow tie brand is continuing its truck building heritage with the all-new Colorado.

Ever wished you could drive around the streets of Metro Manila, especially on EDSA, without encountering a traffic jam even on weekday rush hours? Study shows that traffic jams occur when one inattentive driver suddenly hits the brakes - creating a chain reaction that leads to a complete traffic stoppage for a few dozen cars behind. Well, it seems like Honda has already successfully developed a system that could solve all that. 
 
With help from the University of Tokyo’s Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology, Honda Motor Co. Ltd developed the world first's technology that could detect the potential for traffic congestion. It also monitors the vehicle's acceleration and deceleration behavior to determine whether the driver's driving pattern could cause traffic.
