Best LPG cars

Image result for lpg cars
The increase in fuel prices has pushed car manufacturers to orient themselves, in recent years, towards new alternatives to traditional engines like petrol and diesel. This is why more and more cars with LPG engines are emerging.

In this selection we want to recommend the 10 best LPG cars currently on the market, to offer you a viable alternative to classic engines.

How an LPG system works

The cars with a double power supply all operate according to the same principle: from the cylinder the gas passes to a reducer, also called “lung” which, exploiting the heat of the cooling liquid, lowers the pressure of the gas up to 1-2 bar in based on the operating conditions required by the driver, such as acceleration or release. The LPG then passes to a filter, and then reaches the injector assembly.

The whole process will then be controlled by the electronic control unit of the car, starting from the opening of the various solenoid valves to the actual injection that will occur for each cylinder.

The main advantage that can give us a LPG engine, in addition to producing less polluting emissions, is certainly economical.

The lower cost of LPG, compared to traditional fuels, makes bifuel feeding advantageous, despite the efficiency being slightly lower than that offered by gasoline.

LPG cars consume more than petrol-powered cars, but because of the lower fuel cost, the scale needle leans in favor of LPG. Moreover, another advantage is being able to circulate within the LTZ, even if with some exceptions, such as the Area C of Milan.

The Iranian automobile sector faces a difficult future because of the sanctions

The Iranian automobile sector faces a difficult future because of the sanctions


Teheran, Aug 7 (EFE) .- One of the first victims of US sanctions against Iran is the automobile sector, which is facing a complicated period for both the manufacture of vehicles and the import of spare parts.

This sector is penalized by the sanctions that entered into force today, imposed by the US after its withdrawal from the nuclear agreement of 2015 with Iran and which also concern foreign manufacturers established in the Persian country.

The most notorious cases are those of the French companies PSA and Renault, which in collaboration with local partners manufactured until recently almost half of the newly registered vehicles in Iran.

The PSA group, formed by Peugeot and Citroën, announced last June that “the process of suspension of activities” began to adapt to the US embargo, whose administration rejected France’s requests for exemptions for its companies.

PSA signed agreements with the Iranian manufacturer Iran Khodro in June 2016, to jointly invest 400 million euros and manufacture locally Peugeot cars, and with Saipa in October of that year.

For its part, Renault said it wanted to “maintain the long-term relationship” that it has with Iran, although more recently it advocated seeking opportunities in other countries to compensate for the reduction of business in the Iranian market.

This French manufacturer sold 162,079 units in the Persian country in 2017, an increase of 49% over the previous year thanks to the success of its Tondar and Sandero models.

The reality on the ground is that the expatriate workers of both companies have started to leave Iran and the level of production has been drastically reduced.

As a result, the price of the Peugeot 207 recently increased by 13% to reach $ 21,600, while the Sandero rose just over 10%, exceeding $ 23,000, according to a report by the Tasnim agency.

Other foreign companies in the sector with businesses in Iran, although smaller in scale, such as Scania, Daimler and Volvo, have also started their withdrawal, at least partially.

Foreign companies are aware that a complete exit from the Iranian market in this period of sanctions will make it difficult for them to return in the future, something that the Persian authorities themselves have warned.

“We are monitoring how large foreign companies interact with Iran in the current period and this will certainly affect our economic relations with them in the long term,” said Vice President for Economic Affairs Mohamad Nahavandian.

In addition to foreign manufacturers and their local partners, US sanctions also affect the spare parts sector, of which there are already some shortages.

In an official repair shop in Saipa, outside of Tehran, there were thirty cars covered with dust in the absence of spare parts.

“Because of the dust, we can perfectly well know that they have been parked for more than 20 days because we are missing some spare parts to repair them,” said Ali Reza, one of the operators.

The mechanic told Efe that this shortage is not yet directly motivated by the sanctions, since for example South Korea continues to sell them pieces, but rather by the devaluation of the national currency, which is holding back imports.

The fall of the rial, which has lost more than half of its value since April, has led to a general rise in prices, not only of imported items, and a great uncertainty at the time of purchase and sale.

According to a seller of spare parts, named Hasan and a store located in northern Tehran, the main reason for this shortage is speculation.

“The stores are full of spare parts because the big businessmen imported enough before the devaluation of the rial, but they do not sell them because they know that the prices are going to go up,” he complained.

Hasan acknowledged to Efe that with the sanctions the prices will suffer “another escalation”, while the income of his small business -added- “they do not even give to cover the rent”.

This first round of US sanctions also affects the trade in gold and other metals, precious as well as aluminum or steel, and prohibits the purchase of Iranian debt and the Iranian Government to acquire dollars, which has repercussions in many sectors of an economy and in difficulties.EFE

The creditors of Racing de Santander have a period of one month to inform the insolvency administration about the existence of their credits.

This is indicated by a communication from the Judicial Secretary of the Mercantile Court No. 1 of Santander, published on Tuesday by the Official Gazette.

In the communication, which includes Europa Press, it is recalled that by a car of last July 8, has been declared in competition to the Royal Rácing Club of Santander, Sports Limited Company, retaining the faculties of administration and disposition of its assets, but submitted to the intervention of the Bankruptcy Administration.

In the third part of this communication, it is stated that the bankruptcy creditors must inform the insolvency administration of the existence of their credits in the form and with the data expressed in the Bankruptcy Law.

The deadline for this communication is one month from the last publication of the announcements ordered to be published in the Official State Gazette and as complementary publicity on the TSJC website.

Finally, it is reminded that the creditors and interested parties that wish to appear in the proceeding must do so through a Procurator and assisted by a lawyer.

The Commercial Court number 1 of Santander declared on July 8 in bankruptcy proceedings to the Real Racing Club of Santander, after the entity presented all the necessary documentation to benefit from this legal concept.

In the car, Alejandro Alvargonzález Tremols, the economist Santiago Ruiz Asenjo, and the creditor of the State Agency of the Tax Administration, were appointed as insolvency administrators, “taking into account the undoubted relevance of his credit”.

Likewise, the owner of the Court decided to intervene – not suspend – the faculties of administration and disposition of the Club, which will be supervised by the insolvency administration and, ultimately, by the Court.

In the resolution, the judge indicated that “the applicant has concluded the last few years with negative equity,” which “allows us to conclude that she is in a current insolvency situation, given that she is unable to fulfill her obligations under the circumstances described above. required and to go to economic-financial sources under normal market conditions in order to meet them. “

Passive greater than 37

Millions of euros

At the time of issuing the car, the owner of the Court has had to examine all documentation submitted by the Club. As established by the Bankruptcy Law, together with the bankruptcy application, the debtor must present an explanatory report on the Club’s economic and legal history, the reasons why it is insolvent and the possibilities of viability and continuity of the bank. its activity avoiding the disappearance.

In addition, an inventory of goods, with their acquisition value and an estimate of the current real value; and the list of creditors that the Club has, together with the amount and maturity of the respective credits. Likewise, it has had to provide the mandatory accounting documentation.

As a result of this examination, the order stated that “the list of creditors reflects that the applicant has a significant liability that exceeds 37,000,000 euros, which is distributed in its substantial part between the AEAT and the players that make up the first team squad or linked with image rights of these “.

“The rest of the credits that make up the list of creditors correspond in an important proportion to debts already due or immediately or near expiration, and these credits must be united to assess the effective patrimonial situation of the applicant, which necessarily will be to cause immediately as a consequence of the continuity of their activity, especially, their permanence in the first division football competition of the Professional Football League, “the car states.

On the other hand, as it is extracted from the list of creditors provided, its assets, which are valued in terms of the market by the applicant at 44,000,000 euros, are for the most part integrated by rights linked to the federative rights of players who they are part of the staff of the first division team, which were pledged in favor of the AEAT on the date immediately prior to the request, “right arising from the free transfer of land and rights linked to the brand itself that constitutes an essential intangible asset for the continuation of his sporting activity, “the car says.

An exit in situations of insolvency

The bankruptcy is a judicial procedure included in the Bankruptcy Law that offers an exit to those who are in a situation of insolvency and can not afford the payments to their creditors.

To avoid the multiplicity of judicial processes that these could initiate to claim the debts, a contest begins that groups all of them and avoids that some can collect and others not. The purpose of the bankruptcy procedure is that the company can reach an agreement with its creditors, so that it faces the payments in terms that can be fulfilled and thus avoid the liquidation of the entity.


GRIP: Combat Racing, the review

Image result for combat racingTaking a look at the review of GRIP: Combat Racing one wonders: where did the futuristic racing arcade end up ? Between the 1990s and the beginning of 2000 there was a large movement that evidently saw a close connection between technological progress, speed, competition and unsportsmanlike violence. The origins of this wave date back to almost thirty years ago, when F-Zero showed to a dismayed world the wonders of Mode 7 shot at thousands of kilometers per hour, but from there the same concept was used in other cases, often to stage remarkable technological developments such as Crash N Burn on 3DO or Megarace at the dawn of the CD-ROM. The game that perhaps has enjoyed greater following and that still counts of the emuli is probably Wipeout, but there is a line of less glamorous products but not less appreciated by gamers, decidedly more rough in terms of aesthetics but all based on the gameplay and the competition, which could be defined as a kind of parallel and obscure version of the aseptic titles that emerged from the Psygnosis tradition.

Image result for combat racing

Just under the same label saw the light Rollcage in the late 90s, developed by Attention to Detail and became a sort of cult game, certainly less popular than others but characterized by a hard core of fans that has further strengthened (and perhaps enlarged) with the next release of Rollcage: Stage 2, which emerged the following year on PC and on the first PlayStation. The mention of these two titles is mandatory to introduce GRIP: Combat Racing , because the latter is not simply inspired by the series in question but it is the real “spiritual follow-up”, a definition that has become more and more common lately with the productions that emerged in crowdfunding precisely because, often, these are projects carried out by the same authors of the original titles but forced to apply different names to the games in order not to run into copyright issues. GRIP: Combat Racing is in effect the heir to Rollcage, developed by some of the original authors gathered in the Caged Element team and initially proposed through a crowdfunding finished badly but fortunately resumed and brought to a conclusion with the support of Wired Productions.



Motorcycle insurance suspension: here’s what to know

Image result for motorcycle insurance suspension

Securing bikes is sometimes more difficult than expected. The two wheels are not always used all year round and above all in Italy they still rhyme with the beautiful season.

Here then is that the temporary suspension of a motorcycle insurance returns very useful: let’s see what it is and why it could save you money!

What is the suspension of the insurance policy?

The temporary suspension of motorcycle insurance , which can be activated in periods when the vehicle is not used, offers the insured the possibility of optimizing the cost of the insurance premium over a longer period of time.

So the centaur will not pay a less expensive premium, but will be free to temporarily stop the coverage and reactivate it later.

Who does not use the bike all year can benefit from this option, but you have to pay close attention to the signing of the contract if the option is included in the information package of the motorcycle policy contract.

We need to know that not all companies provide for temporary suspension , but you will not have to settle, the insurance market offers so many alternatives.

Some of the policies provide an additional cost for the activation of the suspension of the policy: often this is not a fixed rate, but a percentage of the motorcycle CC.

It is possible that there are also costs to reactivate the policy and you may have to pay a fixed administrative fee or an adjustment. There are also constraints – which vary from one insurance company to another – related to the suspension itself.

You have to meet the minimum suspension times, almost always a minimum of 30 days, and the maximum times, in many cases exceed the maximum limit is equivalent to the termination of the contract. Finally, the suspension can be activated a predefined number of times, in very few cases it is indefinite, by sending a specific form to the company (through A / R, fax or e-mail).

Motorcycle insurance suspension: how to behave

Image result for motorcycle insurance suspension

When you request the suspension of motorcycle insurance you do not have to use the vehicle because it is as if it were completely uninsured . This means that in the event of an accident, liability for damage caused to third parties is yours only and the insurance company does not offer any cover.

In order to be able to suspend the insurance it is necessary that the bike does not circulate and is stored in a private place, for example a box.

Always check the contractual clauses and additional cover established by the various insurance companies. In some cases, for example, companies offer cover theft and fire even during the insurance suspension period.

Motorcycle navigator: the best 10 models for traveling

Image result for motorcycle navigator

Do you love to travel by motorcycle and you want to discover new and uncontaminated places? The knowledge of the roads is the basis of safety: using a motorcycle navigator is the ideal choice not to get lost and better appreciate the stops.

How to choose the motorcycle navigator

Motorcycle navigators are devices that contribute to improving the comfort and safety of every motorcyclist. Like the navigators designed for motorists, these navigators must be constantly updated, to know well any changes or unforeseen events, due to construction sites or temporary detours, the driver will meet.

Choosing a motorcycle navigator , although it may seem almost impossible, actually turns out to be very interesting. In fact, there are many aspects to be considered a priori, aimed essentially at the use that you intend to make of your future device. In this regard, you will have to make local mind on the type of use you will be making.

If you use the bike for a short time a year, during the summer months or days with more acceptable temperatures or if you consider it as the main means for your travels, it is good to understand the basic features and the related options.

The navigator lends itself to indicate the route to follow to reach the chosen destination. Sometimes, you can have additional conveniences that allow you to enhance the level of adventure, without neglecting comfort while driving.

Below, you will find the elements that will allow you to close the circle on the navigators, until you read the reviews of the most widespread and performing models.


The screen is a very important prerequisite for the choice of a motorcycle navigator. The screen is, in fact, the interface that allows you to interact with the device and view the route on the map. The dimensions of the display are therefore essential, because they have to improve your driving and safety on the road.

The models of low-end navigators have a screen with 2 or 3 inches but, frankly, it is an expense that you could avoid because the visibility leaves rather to be desired.

Although the cost is higher, but still compared to excellent performance, the ideal size of a display is between a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 5 inches. In this way, the maps and routes are displayed clearly, without having to compromise your road safety. There are also models with larger screens that, for a motorcycle, are even exaggerated.

By choosing a mid-range display, you can concentrate on other aspects that can be very useful when driving. One of these is waterproofing . How many times have you happened to be surprised by a storm or stop for a refueling? Among the additional features of a navigator you can also find the resistance to water and fuel.

Another prerogative of a motorcycle navigator is the use of gloves. To be functional and comfortable at the same time, the motorcycle navigator must allow access even to riders who are used to traveling with gloves. light or heavy.

Maps, traffic info and features

The function of the maps is one of the basic technical characteristics of each navigator. Before buying, always consider the possibility of updating. There are models that offer free downloads of updates for life, while others provide for the payment of an annual fee to proceed with the updating of the cartography .

Having updated maps allows not only to drive safely and quietly, but also to avoid traffic jams or deviations due to construction sites or work along the roadway. With the traffic info function you can not only avoid certain areas, but travel alternative routes that will allow you to reach your destination at the scheduled time.

The functions of a navigator are quite varied and their presence often affects the final choice. To maximize the comfort while driving and not to miss anything at all, the navigators are now integrated with Wi-Fi sensors to connect to the Internet and Bluetooth technology to have access to the functionality of the smartphone, such as address book, music or video .

Cars and historical motorcycles stamp: you can save money

Auto Striche Stamp

Yes, if you have a car or a historical bike you can save money on the stamp .

Which cars and bikes are considered historic in Italy?

Historic cars and motorcycles are those vehicles with more than 20 years of life (depending on the year of construction) or vehicles canceled by PRA (Public Automotive Registry) of historical or collectible interest registered in the Asi register (Italian Historic Automotoclub ) or identified by FM I (Federazione Motociclistica italiana) in a list communicated annually to the regions; specifically it is about:

  • vehicles built specifically for competitions;
  • vehicles built for technical or aesthetic research, also in view of participation in exhibitions or exhibitions;
  • vehicles which, although not belonging to the aforementioned categories, are of particular historical or collectible interest due to their industrial, sporting, aesthetic or customary importance.

For these categories of vehicles, exemption from the payment of motor vehicle taxes applies in accordance with the provisions of art. 63 of Law 342/2000 – “Measures in tax matters” and, in the case of use on public roads of these vehicles must pay an annual flat-rate circulation tax (Decree of the President of the Republic February 5, 1953, No. 39, and ss .mm.).

The PA requires the owner of the vehicle the certificate of dating and historicity that can only be issued by the ASI (against which the tax payer must make the payment of a membership fee).

How to do then to remedy this process?

Here are the possible solutions:

  1. Submit certificate of RIVS (Italian Historical Vehicles Register);
  2. Submit a question ;
  3. Submit a self-certification ;
  4. Pay the full amount of the stamp.

Submit RIVS certificate

In Piedmont and in Umbria the RIVS certificate holders can obtain the conversion of the property tax in circulation tax (so-called “reduced stamp”) as the value is comparable to the certificates issued by the ASI and IMF associations. Specifically in Piedmont with the resolution of the regional council n. 15-307 of 12 July 2010, the RIVS was recognized as an authority authorized by the Piedmont Region to control the requirements of cars and motorcycles with ages between 20 and 30 years from the date of construction. Therefore, following a check, the Examiners Commissioners designated by the RIVS will issue a “Special Certification” to the owner of the vehicle, granting the vehicle access to the tax benefits provided by law. Similarly in Umbria with the resolution of the regional council n. 903 of 23 July 2012.
