Insider Report: Using gas to clean windshield? Not a bright idea

Having just driven to Florida and back in two 20-hour dashes, I fully understand the challenges of removing the salty, sandy and slushy mess from a windshield. The solution is to make sure your car’s windshield wipers are in good condition and use a good quality washer fluid. Keeping the defroster on is a great idea too. No matter how frozen it gets though, you should never even consider using gasoline.

Yes, you read that right. While it may seem like common sense for most of us, the lady in this gas station security cam video actually pours gasoline straight from the nozzle onto her windshield. Fortunately a gas pump staffer puts an end to the insanity before her car turned into an inferno.

The Mayor of Hinchtown imitates Kimi Raikkonen at Daytona

He may not have been able to get behind the wheel of the Mazda diesel during the Rolex 24 at Daytona, but that didn’t stop Canadian IndyCar star James Hinchcliffe from showing just why the fans love him. During a long yellow late on Saturday evening, Hinch spent some time with the guys from Speed where he did his infamous imitation of Finnish F1 World Champion (and funny guy himself) Kimi Raikkonen.

Fast, funny and a truly nice guy. Hinch is one of the coolest cats in the paddock!

Hyundai Canada reveals official 2013 Big Game Day Commercial

The Super Bowl is one of the most important sports broadcasts for product marketers and that includes car manufacturers, who spend millions of dollars creating television ads that go to extreme lengths to catch the viewer’s attention. Sadly, most of these ads never reach Canadian viewers, unless they watch them online. Hyundai Canada knows this, so they have created their own unique ad for viewers. Inspired by the now classic Mad Max series of movies, GASPOCALYPSE adds a playful modern spin on the Mel Gibson flicks.

Teasers of this year’s Super Bowl ads have started springing up around the net, which I will begin sharing tomorrow.
