I'm pretty sure that this will cause an outrage in Canada among Horton customers. They should send the message loud and clear that they will NOT patronize the company if they end up bought by BK.

First off, what is the definition of "emission"? 1) NOX, HC, CO? Better engine management and regular tune up will be good. Also banning them illegal modification. 2) CO2 in general? Eat less meat and eat a more vegetarian diet. Meat take

Mostly, I just dust mine with a wool duster that I've had since 1985. I am not that fanatical. I just try to keep the dust down, which is not that hard since cabin air filters help a lot with that.

If you can hold out 1-3 weeks you'll likely be able to catch $50 off $100-$125 on an AAP Autocraft Gold. Linked is a thread that follows the AAP codes and checking the promo board occasionally should get you that $50 off a battery. http://www.bo

Advance auto has coupons online they routinely save 40 off 100 or so, and also have batteries made by JCI. Best bet unless you want an AGM, then I would go to batteries plus.
