Nissan is now testing a prototype vehicle it says can make car washes a thing of the past. This is due to a new nano-paint coating, which actually repels liquids and dirt. Real world tests are now in progress. What an awesome thing this could be! Car washes are time-consuming and costly, and they don’t last. How many times have you pulled out of the car wash with a beautifully clean car only to hit a mud puddle or rainy weather in just a couple of days?
Nissan claims it’s the first car manufacturer to apply a superhydrophobic, oleo phobic topical coating called Ultra-Ever Dry to a consumer vehicle. This nanotechnology based substance has been designed to repel all water-based (and some oil-based) liquids. It supposedly can prevent mud, dirt and road grime from ever sticking to the cars finish. Your car could always look like you just had it washed! Nissan is considering offering this cutting edge coating as an aftermarket option. Check out the videos below for some pretty astonishing displays!
Chances are your contact with your car’s fuel is limited to filling it up at the gas station. But, once you put in that fuel it has quite a journey and a few important responsibilities. Your car’s fuel management system must: Allow the engine to start and run in the coldest and hottest places; Allow the engine to run smoothly under all conditions; And keep exhaust emissions in check. The vehicle’s fuel management system uses a multitude of sensors to gather information such as temperature, pressure, air flow, and other parameters.
