The non drip petrol nozzle invention - A joke or a necessity?

The non drip petrol nozzle invention - A joke or a necessity?

When you go to the petrol station to fill up your car, do you find that the petrol drips from the nozzle, staining your clothes and the ground? No? Thought not, never happened to me either. I thought that it was common sense to shake the nozzle a little before taking it out completely, thus preventing any surplus petrol from dripping out the nozzle. Well someone has come up with an invention that is likely to save y...

Audi e-bike - The electric bicycle that can travel at 50mph with lots of gadgets

For years cyclists have taken to the roads as a way to save money on transport, not only because a bicycle is cheaper than a car but it can also beat queues of traffic. Bicycles do not require an MOT, road tax or insurance so there is less maintenance too. All you need is a helmet, a bike chain (for parking) and a spare wheel or puncture set. Well cycling is about to change as Audi has just revealed plans to launch ...

Avoid losing your licence with an insurance policy that protects you against driving bans

Avoid losing your licence with an insurance policy that protects you against driving bans

For different people, driving disqualification affects them in different ways. Take for example those who use their cars mostly at weekends to do their shopping or visiting family and friends; it will become an inconvenience for them to have to take a taxi for their errands and nothing more.

Mountains and slopes cover some 16% of the total surface area of Mauritius.

Mountain climbing is an activity that is enjoyed by a lot of people; it all revolves around the pers...

10 best selling cars in the UK for 2012

10 best selling cars in the UK for 2012

I was very surprised to hear that new car sales have risen this year by 3.3%. Actually I was a little shocked to hear that that most car sales were from private buyers. With the price of petrol and cost of living skyrocketing, I am bewildered that so many people would even think of purchasing a brand new car. Surely everyone knows that brand new cars are ridiculously overpriced? You lose thousands of pounds just by d...
