I often find my smart phone getting in the way when I drive; there'd been times when I find myself either distracted by it or looking for it. In which areas in my Infiniti M56 car is it advisable to place a smart phone to eliminate distraction while being able to attend to things that need my attention while I'm driving?
There are several areas in your car where you can mount your smart phone when you drive. You can try the so called vent mount on your HVAC vents—this is a secure mounting location for the phone. You just need to regularly check the temperature of the air blowing out of the vent, as too much hot air can cause phone problems. You can also get an adhesive puck or a suction cup so that you can mount your smart phone on any flat surface. The versatility of these options will allow you to choose the area where you can most conveniently access your phone. Or, another option is not to mount the phone at all—simply activate its voice feature so that you won't even have to tinker with it when you drive. This is even safer and less distracting.
How useful are anti-gelling fuel additives for my vehicle? Are they worth the additional investment? What are their benefits?
Anti-gelling fuel additives are useful for diesel vehicles during winter—they melt the wax that forms solid in the fuel during winter and cold weather. Very low temperature causes the formation of this wax, and this can clog the fuel filter when it is not liquefied. Most fuel lines are now heated, but anti-gelling additives are still useful because they provide added benefits to the fuel system and to the entire vehicle. Not only do they address problems that are related to cold starting, but they can also offer added lubrication to the fuel system. In some cases, they also have a ‘cleaning' property that allows them to clean the fuel in the system. With all these benefits, it will be helpful to add these kinds of additives when you are driving in winter weather.
I'm seeing quite a lot of scratches on the rims of my Infiniti M56 vehicle, and they're starting to become unsightly. What's the best way to eliminate these scratches and get a brand new look in my wheels?
Scratched wheels can be restored in just around 30 minutes and using only a few materials and cleaning ingredients. The process involves a bit of cleaning the area with glass cleaner, sanding and scuffing it to smoothen out the surface, and repainting the wheels. This will include primer application, applying the actual paint, and then finishing off with clear coating. If you are restoring just one wheel, it is important that you get the paint color that will match that of your other wheels. Most people think there's only one wheel color in general, but there are actually as many as a hundred different shades. Choose the right one so you won't have one odd wheel in your ride after the restoration process.
