2012 Hyundai Genesis R-Spec 0-60 MPH
http://MPGomatic.com drops the hammer on a 2012 Hyundai Genesis 5.0 R-Spec
Sedan for a 0-60 MPH acceleration test. The Genesis R-Spec is fitted with a
5.0L V8 is mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission.
The 5.0-liter V8 produces 429 horsepower (HP) and 376 foot
pounds of torque.
This test was performed off-idle, with traction control on. (No launch!)
Due to the time of year, the test car was fitted with Bridgestone Blizzak
winter tires. Under optimum conditions, I could shave a few tenths off.
Lets call this run a 5.3.

Jeep TJ Synthetic Oil Change - Ain't Fuelin!
There are lots of choices to make when change the oil in your vehicle ...
whether you do it yourself or have someone do it for you.
Synthetic oils offer better protection, longer life, and incrementally
higher fuel economy. The trick is to pick the right oil and oil filter.
Don't make the mistake of pairing an expensive long-life oil with an
inexpensive filter that's not made to go the distance.
With more than a buck and a half on the original straight six, a synthetic
high mileage blend is an appropriate oil for this 1998 Jeep Wrangler TJ. A
slippery full synthetic would find its way out of the engine at a higher
JVC KW-V20BT Review: Slambo Gets Bluetooth/USB/Pandora/Nav - Ain't Fuelin'
Slambo's audio system gets an upgrade with a JVC KW-V20BT double din LCD
head unit. This DVD receiver includes hands-free Bluetooth, USB input,
Pandora integration, SiriusXM capability, and AppLink.
Applink allows the unit to display a handful of popular Apps on the LCD
screen. I take a quick run through Waze, DashCommand, and I Heart Radio in
this Ain't Fuelin' behind-the-scenes segment.
I need to post links to Honda Civic dashboard removal vids.
2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.
I'll post a link to my full review in the Autobytel channel once it's ready

Redline Review: 2015 Hyundai Genesis 3.8
After seven years on the market, Hyundai proves it can build a value
oriented luxury sedan that has the potential to run with the best from
Germany, America, and Japan. For generation two, the 2015 Genesis now
features more distinctive styling, nearly autonomous driving technology,
and updated refinement bringing it closer to its direct rivals. Those of
you who wants a luxury sedan that doesn't follow the norm should stop by
your local Hyundai dealership, but those looking for more sportier dynamics
may find some competing vehicles more to your liking.
