*Richie's Tip Jar saves you 2 to 5 gallons of gasoline per tank full.
With this summer like weather get out and wash and wax your vehicles. Clean your engines
Put Rain X an all the exterior glass. Detailing your vehicles will make it more aerodynamic.
*On cold mornings don't warm up your vehicles for more then 1 minute.
*Don't push the gas pedal to the metal / floor. Slow and gentle acceleration will save gasoline
Let your foot off the gas pedal to slow before you start braking. Using cruise control helps.
*Combine and map out your tips. Try not to drive in rush hour or slow traffic times.
We need to start car pools and use public transportion if possible.
*Keep your tires inflated to the proper air pressure. If one tire is 10 pounds low, you lose
2 to 3 gallons of gasoline per tank full. Check your front end alignment, balance, rotate tires
and replace worn tires.
*Vehicles use 25 to 45 parts of air to 1 part gasoline This means that air filter replacement is a
must. The next time you replace the air filter buy a K N Filter or Green USA Filter because
you can wash them. They also pump more air in at high way speeds you will get better
gasoline milage. Gas filter should be changed also.
*Empty your vehicles of all excess weight. The more weight you carry around,
the more gasoline you waste.
*Change your oil and filter, and get a grease job every 3000 miles. Oil lubricates and
cools your engine so keep the oil full and clean.
*With the price of gasoline so high this tip may be hard to do, but try to keep your gasoline
tank at 1/2 to full you should get better gas mileage.
*Clean the snow and ice off your vehicles. Wet snow is very heavy and
it cost you miles per gallon.
*Anti-Freeze lasts about 2 years or 20,000 miles. Have your cooling system flashed. Please
use a service department that can recycle your Anti-Freeze engines that run at the correct
temperature save you miles per gallon. Always cut Anti-Freeze with 50 % water.
*Tune Up; Spark Plugs, Cap, Rotor, Wires, PVC valve, Oxygen Sensors, and Exhaust System
should be checked at 50,000 to 60,000 miles and if needed should be replaced.
*Batteries only last about 5 years vehicles today need full power.
*Check all your fluids and top them off; Brake, Power Steering and Transmission fluids.
Your service manual will tell you when to change them.
*Be careful with gasoline additives that clean the fuel system. Some may damage the
system. Never put in gas additives unless you fill the gasoline tank first.
The only additive I use is a product called SEA-FOAM it's one of the better products out.
*Americans use over 160 Billion Gallons of Gasoline each year. Richie's Tip Jar Saves you
about 20% on each tank full. Service costs a lot less then repairs. I believe that taking good
care of your vehicles will add up to big saving at the gasoline pump. You can save gasoline,
buy a Hybrid, Motorcycle, or Scooter.They get 30 to 120 miles per gallon of gasoline.
Please Support Motor City Mad House Radio Show.
Don't Let Scammers Ripe You OFF!!!
* Don't open EMails from UPS / FedX / FBI they don't send emails they don't have your email address
this scam will lock up your computer if you open it. You should not open emails you don't know.
* Fake Cashier Checks and Money Orders are common, and banks will cash them
and hold you responible when the fake is discoved weeks later.
* Never wire funds via Western Union, Moneygram or any other wire service-
anyone who asks you to do so is a scammer and you will be riped off.
* Never give out financial information ( bank account number, social security number, Ebay / Pay Pal info, ect.
* Avoid deals involving shipping or escrow services and know that only a scammer will"Guarantee"your Transaaction
* Do not rent housing without seeing the interior, or purchase expensive items sight-unseen-
in all likelihood that housing unit is not actually for rent.
* Do not submit to Credit Checks or Background Checks for a job for housing until you have met the
interviewer or Landlord agent in person. Who should I notify about fraud or scam attempts.
* Internet Fraud Complaint Center * FTC video how to report scam to the FTC. * FTC online complaint form.
* FTC toll free hotline 877-FTC-HELP 382-4357 * Consumer Sentinel Military ( for reports from service members
or their familiers. SIIA Sofware and content piracy reporting.
Please don't get scammed I did when I was looking for a job.
Crazy bout Saving Money, Richie's Tip Jar Saves You Thousands of Dollars
* Febreze: Next time you empty a bottle of Febreze put in 3oz of Downey Fabric Softener and fill with water.
This is the same as Febreze for a cost of 26 cent a bottle. Try it it works in your home, office, around pets & in cars.
* Candles: Do your candles smoke just cut the wick back. The candles will stop smoking.
* Clogged bathtub/ shower drain: Pour 4 cups of Clorox Bleach into the drain and let it stand for 2 to 3 hours or,
better yet, over night and drain should be cleared. Keep this drain clear do 4 cups of Clorox Bleach every 4 months.
* Glass Cleaner: The next time your spray bottle is empty refill it with Automotive Windshield Washer Fluid it's the
thing as window cleaner. Cost is about 21 cents a bottle.
* Dishwashers: Clean your dishwasher by putting 2 cups of white vinegar in with your regular wash cycle.
How to deal with the service department.
* When you maintain your vehicle they last longer then the payment book and you get better gas mileage.
* Tell the service writer when the vehicle acts up. Only when it's cold or only when it's hot out.
The temperuter when it acts up is very important.
* The vehicle only acts up over 45 to 55 miles per hour, or maybe under 20 mph.
* Only when it's rainy out/ high humity or only in the morning, or after it sits over night.
* Maybe after I drive it for about 20 minutes.
* These tips, will help help you get better service of your vehicle, and the service department knows you know
something about your vehicle. Don't tell them how to fix the vehicle.

get it checked out immeediately it will lead to brake failure if not corrected.

Antifreeze / Coolant

manufacturer. Most vechicles have a radiator located just behind the grill.
