10 Tips For Better Fuel Efficiency for your Car

With Singapore petrol prices having dropped to a low since 2009 (Straits Times, Jan 13th 2015), motorists have something positive to cheer about. If you still have a mini heart attack every time you see your petrol bill, here are 10 tips to manage your car’s fuel! 

1. Put The ‘RIGHT’ Foot Down
It’s all about keeping a light right foot, aka the acceleration pedal. Control your acceleration, refrain from spending energy on resisting drag or making sudden/rapid brakes. Whether it’s accelerating slowly (therefore not jumpstarting) or starting fast to rise to a comfortable cruising speed (and making it constant); by maintaining a smooth ride, your car consumes lesser petrol.

2. Need For Speed
With acceleration, comes speedily aggressive driving which makes your car’s fuel consumption go into overdrive. The drag increases, tyre friction happens and your engine needs more fuel to compensate. It’s boring to drive slowly­ – the drivers behind may not appreciate it as well­ but you save on petrol and avoid a ticket. Just don’t crawl to a stop at morning peak hour lah!
3. Just Get The Usual Fuel
High level octane or ‘premium’ fuel is often touted as giving a boost to your car’s regular engine. In actual fact, most engines of cars on the road are not built to extract the full potential of high octane fuel. Unless your car has a turbo charge that can process the premium fuel, stick to the regular cheap stuff. 92 or ’95 octane fuel is enough to keep your car’s engine running well and safe from pinging/knockback.
4. The Space Between
Leave some space between you and the car in front and you create a little breathing space to plan your driving, anticipate traffic change and be more aware of the road.This could be hard to do in traffic congested rush hour, but remember no one likes a tailgater!
5. What’s The Plan?
We use our cars almost everyday for work, leisure or making supermarket runs. Use one trip to clear errands instead of driving constant short term distances! By planning in advance, you can save loads of fuel such as driving to NTUC after dropping off your kids at tuition, take a detour route when there’s a traffic jam etc. With everyone having a smartphone, its easy to dive into route planning and checking roads with a driving app!
6. Maintain… Must Maintain
Your car’s fuel consumption is dependent on a well maintained engine. Make friends with the service workshop and bring your car for regular visits! Change the oil, unclog filters and fix all faulty parts. According to drivingfast.net, clean parts help burn fuel efficiently and allow more power to be extracted!
7. An Idle Engine Is A Hungry Engine
The rule of thumb most drivers should stand by: shut down the engine if you’re waiting in the car for a minute or less. Leaving it on burns unnecessary fuel. Not recommended if you’re in the middle of crawling traffic, unless your car has a fast start up!
8. Spring Clean
If the car boot starts to resemble your storeroom, it’s time to do some spring cleaning. A weight reduction easily leads to less energy needed to run the car.
9. No Air­Con, Just The Natural Breeze
There are tips ranging from only winding down the backseat windows to diagonally alternate windows for good air flow. Keep the windows minimally 3/4 up to prevent air drag. If the weather’s good and you’re not sandwiched between exhaust belching lorries and honking cars , this tip can hold some weight. But the tradeoff of having your interior getting exposed to grime may not be worth it.
10. Hypermiling: Going The Extra Mile
All the above tips come down to Hypermiling­ the art of modifying driving habits and techniques to drive economically and efficiently. Some drivers have taken to applying strict hypermiling in their everyday driving to cut back on costs. Other suggestions include managing tire pressure and fuel additives – hypermiling.co.uk and ecomodder.com are just two of many sites that offer tips!
Ultimately, hardware and fuel calculators can only do so much. As boring as it is, one of the quickest ways to lower FC is to change driving habits. The ideas may be hard to put to practice but rewarding in the long run safety and cost wise. The next time you get behind the wheel, why not try out some of the tips? Happy Safe driving!

artificial reef park indonesia

Teguh Ostenrik, the Indonesian artist vagabond, has finally brought to life his underwater fascination to realize his environmental concern, with artworks planted deep in the waters around Senggigi, Lombok.
But instead of the delicate shapes and colors that often form his canvases, a maze-like structure seems to push its tentacles underneath the water mass. Soon corals will be covering the iron bars of scrap metal through whose pipes a light electric stream flows.
The project was launched on May 24, an uses the biorock artificial reef park indonesia system, which turns dissolved minerals in seawater into biorock or “seament,” to accelerate coral growth six times faster than natural growth.
The initiative is a collaborative effort by the Lombok Hotel Association (LHA) and the Indonesian Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Ministry, with support from the Gili Eco Trust.
Starting off in the middle of Senggigi Beach, it is planned to extend to the entire length of the beach.
Teguh’s installation, which he calls Domus Sepiae, or Squid House, appears like artists’ floating palettes dancing five meters below the surface of the water. The lightweight appearance is deceptive, as each of the 16 modules of six-millimeter-thick iron plates, measuring 130 by 140 centimeters, weights 200 kilograms. Each is set on a two-meter-high iron pole.
“I have made holes in the thick plates as a way of fortification against strong currents and to allow fish to play around or hide from predators,” Teguh says.
“The poles are linked to each other to ensure that they stand firm even against strong currents.”
Asked how working with scrap metal this time differed from the process for his scrap metal works in the Defacement series in 2008, the artist says that this time he had to heed the guidelines from Delphine Robbe to protect the budding corals from being crushed when the structure trembles.
How did he come to be so passionate about the coral reefs?
“I was shocked when I found that the underwater landscape near Senggigi was barren like the Sahara desert,” Teguh says, explaining his resolve to use his art to reclaim the coral reefs.
He had been diving there nearly 30 years ago, admiring the underwater paradise. His fascination led him to present his amazing installation “Alam Dibawah Air” in 1988 at the building that now is the National Gallery. The public was invited into a darkened room, and entering it as if coming into the realm of the underwater world, one was provided a mask to make the illusion more real when looking at his paintings featuring his artistic representations of this wondrous world.
But when he returned to Lombok in 2011 he was taken aback: instead of the coral reefs and the pristine paradise with schools of fish, lobster and squid that he vividly remembered, he found a lifeless underwater desert.
Apalled, the artist whose sublime series “Homo Sapiens,” with his ancient images morphing the past with the present,  then decided to do what he considers his mission as an artist living amid such grave environmental degradation.
Indonesia, which has the highest coral reef biodiversity in the world, has only 6 percent left in a pristine state. Overfishing, dynamite fishing, pollution and other factors have left the rest destroyed or damaged.
When invited for a residency at Qunci Villas in Lombok, Teguh proposed to research the possibility of revitalizing the coral reefs through his art works.
“Rather than only making works to decorate walls with, I wanted my art to help recover the reefs that are the habitats of fish and so many other  species and the livelihood of the people dependent on them,” he says.
He learned of biorock, the artificial reef system that has been applied in other places, and was fortunate to get to know Robbe, the passionate and inspiring director of Gili Eco Trust, a local nongovernmental organization with an active involvement in protecting coral reefs.
After a lot of effort collecting enough scrap metal from around Lombok, Teguh then created his underwater installation that he called Domus Sepiae.
While other foreign artists have previously been involved in such efforts, Teguh is the first to provide his own materials, according to Robbe. For the others, the Gili Eco Trust provided for their needs.
And on May 24, the ARTificial Reef Park that Teguh denoted as an underwater museum was launched, off the beach from de Quake restaurant, located approximately midway along Senggigi. It is planned to extend along the entire beach eventually.
“I hope other artists will be interested in collaborating,” the 64-year-old says

QUESTION OF THE DAY -- AND THEN SOME...

What were your favorite breakfast cereals when you were a kid?

One of the reasons I ask this is because I can't remember the last time I had a bowl of cereal for breakfast -- I've been working 12-hour nights for years, and concepts like "breakfast time," "lunch time," and "supper time" do not figure prominently in my life. I eat what I can eat when I need to eat it, the presence or the absence of the sun be damned. "Breakfast" often consists of half a submarine sandwich, "lunch" usually involves a salad, a yogurt, and the other half of the sub, and it's not odd for me to have a Western omelette for "supper" before bedtime. Drinking lots of beer over the years has helped just a little more than it's harmed me in this regard -- but that's a subject for another post. Now back to cereals...

I ate dozens of cereals when I was but a tiny mockling. I remember eating both Quisp and Fruit Brute at least once -- do either of those brands ring a bell, senoras and horsemen? I even remember eating Lucky Charms when that brand only featured four different marshmallows. But there are three cereals from my kidhood that I seem to recall liking the most: Cinnamon Life, Frosted Flakes, and Rice Chex. I might have been the only kid in my hometown who liked Rice Chex.

One cereal I couldn't stand was Cocoa Puffs. Never liked it, never will. Sonny, to me, was the perfect mascot for that cereal -- you truly had to be cuckoo to enjoy eating that shit. I didn't like Kellogg's Corn Flakes, either, but at one point in my life, economic troubles forced my nuclear family to live with my maternal grandparents, and they ate Corn Flakes for breakfast. This meant I was going to eat Corn Flakes for breakfast, too, so I eventually got used to that. But I don't think I'll ever acquire a taste for Cocoa Puffs.

Ho-kay, enough about me. What about you?
