Confessions of GTO Users

"Mga GTO users, maayong adlaw. I went to have an emission test sa akong car. Been using gto for quite a while and ang result is 0% ang CO nako. dili ko katu-o pero mao ang result. nangatang ko og lain na nagpa emission didto unya naa man CO ilaha. Sa inyong na-experience tinuod kaha ni? hehehe. Bilib na jud ko ani sa GTO. "

(GTO Users, Good Day! I went to get my car emission tested, I have been using GTO for some time now and the result is 0% ppm CO! I cannot believe it but that is the result! I investigated other vehicle owners for their CO emissions but none of them have Zero! In your experience, is this for real??? I am now a True Blue Believer of this GTO.)

1. Nickname or full name: Faxy
2. Title: Doy Mekaniko  (Mechanic)
3. Car Type, year model etc.: Suzuki Every F6a 12 valve 660cc EFI
4. Condition Before GTO: Well condition ang makina. sakto namo pagka maintain. walay usok.   (My engine is well maintained, no smoke)
5. Condition After GTO:  Consumption sa gasolina ubos2x jud, 200+ ka kilometro nga byahe way hunong2x ang karga nako kai lima ka buok, mura ra og duhay karga kai ni kusgan lang og kalit ang makina.
(My Fuel Consumption is 200km per tank full.... The engine is so strong and it feels like I am carrying only 2 passengers when I am loaded with 5!)

6. Feedback after a period of time (weeks, months, years)
Monday pa nako gi butang pero ang kaun sa gas hing gamay jud, dayun hing kusgan, post ko balik after a month.
(I just added this last Monday, but the fuel consumption is less already, and it has significantly improved in performance and power, I shall post again after a month.)
7. Remarks: Since ok man ako makina, atong feb pa na change oil, sa gas consumption jud akong na bantayan og ayu nga ning gamay.
(Since my engine is OK, The last February was the last oil change, I was able to monitor my gasoline consumption and I am already satisfied with this improvement.)
8. Location: Iligan CIty

Giunsa nako pag sukod sa consumption? gagamit kog distance calculator (maps of net) mapa sa ako ga adtuan.. makita na sa internet. dayun e full tank dayun nako ang multicab, kada kudlit sa Fuel gauge ako na gi sukod pila ka litro..
(How I measure my FC, I use distance calculator from internet, maps of where I go, then I fill it up, and everytime necessary or available, I would fill up to get the consumed fuel in Liters.)
Katong wala pay GTO mo dagan og 14km/liter karon nga naa GTOil hing abot og 17km/liter.
(Before GTO my FC was 14kpl, now it's about 17kpl.)
with aircon 12km/liter walay GTO, kung naa GTO kai 15km/liter.
(Before GTO With AC it's 12kpl, Then after GTO it's 15kpl.)
wa ko ga tuo nga ingun ani nga resulta.
(I can't beleive these results!)

Notes to ponder

NASA claims that the government could slow down worldwide global warming by cutting down on soot emissions. Studies by NASA show that cutting down on soot would not only have an immediate cooling effect, but would also put a stop to many of the deaths caused by air pollution. When soot is formed, it typically travels through the air absorbing and releasing solar radiation which in turn begins to warm the atmosphere. Cutting soot emissions would be an immediate help against global warming, as the soot would quickly fall out of the atmosphere and begin to cool it down.

Cutting back on soot emissions would buy us time in our fight against global warming. Soot is caused by the partial burning of fossil fuels, wood and vegetation. Soot is known to contain over forty different cancer causing chemicals, and a complete cut would offer untold health benefits worldwide.

Environmental conservation has always been a topic for lengthy discussions, but up until recent times, global warming and climate changes were vague subjects, with no hard proof. Not surprisingly, the previous lack of attention to these issues have created a very gloomy outlook on our future. So, considering all this, what could be the biggest contributor to climate changes through global warming? Transportation - the man-made iron horses, flying machines and sea monsters, so to speak.

The question we have now is how green is our transportation? The majority of the worlds' vehicles are fueled by oil (petrol, diesel and kerosene). Even if they rely on electricity, the stations used to generate this electricity use fossil fuels for power! Excluding vehicle manufacture, transportation is responsible for 14% of the artificially created greenhouse emissions, mostly carbondioxide.

Automobiles, trains and planes are all responsible for this problem, but cars are the highest impact-makers. They release approximately six times more carbondioxide than a plane and seven times more than sea vessels.

What is Air Pollution?

Air pollution is somewhat difficult to define because many air pollutants, at low concentrations, are essential nutrients for the sustainable development of ecosystems. So, air pollution could be defined as:A state of the atmosphere, which leads to the exposure of human beings and/or ecosystems to such high levels or loads of specific compounds or mixtures thereof, that damage is caused. With very few exceptions, all compounds that are considered air pollutants have both natural as well as human-made origins.

Air pollution is not a new phenomenon; in Medieval times, the burning of coal was forbidden in London while Parliament was in session. Air pollution problems have dramatically increased in intensity as well as scale due to the increase in emissions since the Industrial Revolution.
