Kage Kaisen Revival!

.SITE RENOVATION.

To all our members,

I (Kensei), have decided to renovate the site, which has remained dead since our head Administrator, Baraku, went absent. There will be a new set of rules, a new skin, new profile formats...

Basically, we're starting the site over.

But don't be alarmed. For those of you who choose to return, you will not have to rewrite your application, or change it to the present system. Your applications are still there, resting in the Filing Cabinet -- feel free and ask the Staff to repost it if it has already been approved, or ask them to read over the application and approve it, then move it to the Approved sub-boards.

If you do not wish to roleplay on the site any longer, or the renovation does not appeal to you, all you have to do is tell the Staff in a PM ; your account will be removed without any questions.

We apologize for any inconveniences, and thank you all for your patience and cooperation.


Your loving (new) head Admin,
Kensei

Speeding Is Dangerous And Expensive

Post by mrthought on May 17th 2011, 11:48 pm

Speeding is dangerous and expensive, make sure you pay attention to how fast your car is going. Speeding wastes gasoline since the faster the vehicle is traveling the more fuel it uses.

(NC)—Spring weather tempts even the most conscientious drivers to take their vehicles out for a joy ride on the dry, open road after months of manoeuvring their way through snow and slush. Aside from the obvious dangers of speeding, on the highway driving over the speed limit, even by 20 kilometres, costs you more at the pump while saving you very little time.

Consider these facts from Natural Resources Canada:

• Each vehicle operates most efficiently at a given speed. While this speed varies from model to model, most cars, vans and light–duty trucks are most fuel–efficient when travelling between 50 and 80 km/h. The faster a vehicle travels above 80 km/h, the more fuel it consumes. For example, a vehicle needs, 20 per cent more fuel to go 120 km/h than to go 100 km/h.

• For a typical 25 kilometre trip going 120 km/h instead of 100 km/h, you'll only save two and a half minutes but use 20 per cent more fuel. For example, if your vehicle uses 10 L/100 km while traveling at 100 km/hr that same vehicle would use 12 L/100km traveling at 120 km/hr. That means that on a 25 km trip you would use ˝ L more fuel traveling at 120km/hr instead of 100km/hr and cost you about 50 cents more. If you consistently travel at 120km/hr instead of 100km/hr you're using about 2 Litres more fuel every hour and spending about 2 dollars more every hour.

Is saving a few minutes yet wasting fuel and money really worth it?

Stay safe this spring by adopting more fuel–efficient driving habits. Maintain a steady speed, accelerate gently, avoid high speeds, anticipate traffic and coast to decelerate. Your loved ones and your bank account will thank you.

Natural Resources Canada has some pretty convincing data on its website at www.vehicles.nrcan.gc.ca. You can also download some of their publications which have very helpful graphs and charts on the real cost of speeding and other uneconomical driving habits.
