Three gasoline tankers have spent the past few weeks floating around the Caribbean with no direction for delivery. Together they carry 1.35 million barrels of gasoline and octane booster and some quick (bad) math puts that somewhere around $100 million worth of fuel.
Too much oil. Imagine that.
Hyundai Motor America has just fired its CEO, apparently because the company wasn’t selling enough cars here. Dave Zuchowski was in the job for just under three years, and is out effective immediately.
Future electric cars from Nissan, Mitsubishi and Renault will share the platform of the Nissan Leaf, according to a report from The Nikkei. The newspaper reports that the companies aim to lower car costs by up to 20 percent with the move, bringing their electric cars closer in price to the gas guzzlers of the world.
While Faraday Future’s business side has some issues with paying its business partners, there’s no question the engineering side of the company is working on some extremely cool stuff. Here’s their prototype development vehicle looking like it’s about to whup the asses of a Bentley Bentayga, Ferrari 488 and Tesla…
We all know the tricks and tips for hypermiling your car to maximize efficiency, but what if there was a legitimate need to run down your fuel at a rapid pace? What is the best method to do so while staying safe, legal and not causing damage to your car?
Last week we saw our first images of what we thought were billion-dollar Chinese auto startup WM Motor’s first cars, and quickly realized they were, in fact, photoshops of a Mitsubishi. Now, WM Motor denies that those renderings were its own.
The biggest voice in the car enthusiast world has once more trashed electric cars based on a bunch of misinformation and dipshittery. Jeremy Clarkson, what are you talking about, man?
Startup Lucid Motors of Menlo Park, California, is ready to take on Tesla with a 1,000 horsepower electric sedan selling for more than $100,000. And it will do just that once it, uh, finds some money to, uh, you know, build some actual cars.
The industry term was called “downsizing,” but all it referred to was making engines smaller to use less gas, and then turbocharging them to make up for lost power. It’s the trend automakers have been pushing over the last decade, and it was supposed to be what saved the ordinary internal combustion engine. It was a…
The punitive California Air Resources Board (CARB) has figured out how Audi cheated on a particular run of “several hundred thousand” of their cars, according to a new report by the German newspaper BILD am Sonntag. This time we Americans have discovered a trick in the car’s software that relates to the steering…
Fisker is back with a car they are extremely adamant is not an updated version of the car that put them out of business years ago. Fisker’s old cars might have been flawed, but they were gorgeous. We all wanted them to be good. The new one is, hm, less so.
Economists and reporters have been saying that electric cars could actually kill the oil industry for a little while now, but it hasn’t made a lot of real-world impact so far. But now Fitch, an enormously influential financial ratings agency, is issuing dire warnings over electric cars.
There is a frankly perfect episode of It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia in which the gang finds a brilliant way to end the gas crisis – door-to-door gasoline sales. Trust me, it makes sense. It makes sense to Bentley, too, because that’s exactly what it’s now offering.
Gas has been relatively cheap for a long, long time now. Ever since the global economy collapsed in 2008, it hasn’t reached the same stratospheric heights. That looks like it will change soon, as the AP reports that OPEC has reached a preliminary agreement to cut production.
Earlier this month, this little egg-shaped carbon fiber bicycle set a new record World’s Fastest Human-Powered vehicle at 89.59 miles per hour. That’s fast, but I’m more interested in its energy efficiency, operating at 9,544 MPGe.
It’s been ten days since an investigator discovered a pipeline that carries some 40 percent of the East Coast’s gasoline had burst in Alabama. A quarter million gallons of leaked gas later, the South is still stuck in a fuel shortage. Towns run dry. Prices through the roof. Empty Camaros strewn across the land. Well,…
