Reply Matthew Carney says: July 7, 2017 at 12:43 pm This si such a wonderful and informative infographics. As a vehicle owner, I am always worried about my vehicle’ s engine and looking for crucial steps to improve the engine’s performance. Every vehicle owner should know certain facts about their vehicle so that they can easily deal with the problems or easily keep the engine in good condition. I would like to thank this infographic for providing such wonderful information. This is really impressive. Reply Robbie @ Town Garage says: July 13, 2017 at 1:59 pm I couldn’t agree with Matthew more. So many drivers don’t know this information about their cars. I think it should be our responsibility to understand them so that we can not only save money in the long run, we can also ensure we are safe when in our cars! Your infographic is great at explaining this Reply Alisa Ewert says: August 1, 2017 at 9:44 am With this blog you really took our attention to the points that we never thought about.
