Thoughts on My Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer

My everyday driver is an '04 F-150 with the 5.4 liter V8. It's a great truck, but as you can imagine it's pretty thirsty -- 14 city, 15.5 highway is the best I have ever gotten on it. When we started carrying the Hypertech Max Energy Power Programmer I decided I would try one. I figured the gas savings over time would pay for it and I'd get a performance...  Read More

Is It Really That Hard to Check Your Tire Pressure?

So I'm sitting at an intersection today listening to my favorite big hair heavy metal band from the 80s (don't laugh, it's coming back you know) and I look over to see your favorite car and mine - a minivan, next to me with rust, unwashed windows, and yup, a tire that's near flat.
