在汽油每加仑2.50美元的美好日子里,人们会对简单的汽车维修满不在乎,毕竟,这能花多少钱呢?在哪不是花呢?但是当价格到达创纪录的4美元时,所有这一切都起了变化。现在需要学会精打细算了。通过自己处理一些简单的保养任务,你会省掉一大笔可观的花销。我们从Jalopnik's的指导窍门中列举出了五个基本项目的快捷清单,内容由最简单向最复杂递增,以期帮助车主在每天的驾驶中每加仑多跑几英里。

1.巧妙加油

没有比这更简单的了。在一天中最冷的时候选择给你的车加油。因老式的油泵不具有温度补偿流速计,当它温度低的时候,燃油会更加密集,所以当你选择一大早而不是下午5点半下班回家路上加油时,你会花相同的钱获得更多的燃油。还有如果你十分节俭,那你的车就没必要用高值燃料。弃用高值燃料而改用便宜的燃料。最后远离E85燃油,因为这种乙醇混合燃料所提供的燃烧效率要远低于纯正燃油。

2.让爱车保持清洁

首先,冲洗车并打蜡-这不只是出于美观,事实上它会降低风对车的阻力。尽管作用不大,但很小的一点足可让你受益,记住了?更重要的,清洁汽车内部环境,特别是那些放在汽车顶盖、行李箱、后座里的不必要的成盒垃圾。通过减轻重量,你就能改善燃油效率。只安装婴儿座。

3.检查轮胎压力

充气不足的的轮胎在路上会消耗更多的能量,所以你需要经常检查一下轮胎压力。花钱买个刻度盘式轮胎气压测量仪,并用它每周一次检查轮胎压力。即使轮胎压力低了2PSI,你也会燃烧掉更多的燃油。

4.改换空气过滤器

如果你的发动机呼哧作响,且不得不费更大的劲带入更有效率的燃烧燃油所需的空气,它不是在向你抱怨,但它只会燃烧掉更多的燃油。如果你生活在尘土密布的地方,建议每年或每两年更换你的空气过滤器,这样就会保证你的发动机可以自由“呼吸”。查询用户指南来获得过滤器改换指导意见-这通常是个很直接的过程。这不会在每次加油时帮你省钱,但它却是每年视英里数最少给你省出空气过滤器的花销。

5.改换火花塞

磨损的火花塞不能够有效地将发动机中的空气燃油混合物点燃,导致产生一定的能量会消耗掉更多的燃油。取决于你驾驶的车辆,你的火花塞或许得一年一换,或许十年之内无需更换。再有就是查阅用户手册获得详情内容。记住现在已进入“实战”阶段。如果你驾驶的是使用直列发动机的老式汽车,改换火花塞只需一个小时就能完成。如果是对横轴V6型那样的经常用在小型货车和国内轿车上的发动机,就完全是另一回事了,油腻的变向关节,拆掉零件,弯曲插口,及满嘴的咒骂之声。如果你的车到了该换火花塞了,而你又不能胜任,一个高水平的维修商铺将能以合适的价位帮你完成。

一旦你掌握了这些汽车原理,你可以充满自信地驾驶,因为你所做的一切都是让你的爱车尽可能地提高效率。再就是,如你已足够自信,并准备解决更多的复杂问题,那么祝你好运。如果你还想学得更多,一定要看一下这些节油小贴士:

译文:Five Ways To Keep Your Car Running At Peak Fuel Efficiency

Back in the good ol' days of $2.50-per-gallon gasoline, you could ignore simple car maintenance. After all, what was it costing you? A buck here and a buck there? But when prices hit the $4 mark, things changed. Now, every cent counts, and you can save a surprising amount of scratch by performing a few simple maintenance tasks yourself. We've put together a quick list of five basics from Jalopnik's "" series, ranked from easiest to most difficult, that can help any vehicle owner squeeze a few extra MPG (Miles Per Gallon) out of their daily driver.

1. Fill Up Smart

It doesn't get easier than this. Fill up your vehicle during the coolest part of the day. With older pumps that don't have a temperature-compensating flow meter, fuel is denser when it's cool, so you actually get more for your money when you pump gas in the early AM instead of filling up at 5:30PM on your way home from work. Also, if you really want to penny-pinch, and you don't need to be using premium fuel in your car, ditch the premium gas and use the cheaper stuff. Finally, stay away from E85 — the ethanol-mixed fuel provides lower fuel economy than the pure stuff.

2. Keep Your Car Clean

First off, wash and wax your car — it doesn't just look good, it actually lowers the wind resistance of your vehicle. No, not by much, but every little bit helps, remember? More importantly, clean out the inside of your vehicle, particularly any unnecessary boxes of heavy junk you have in the hatch/trunk/backseat. By removing weight, you can improve fuel economy. Just keep the baby seat installed.

3. Check Your Tire Pressure

Underinflated tires take more energy to push down the road so check your tire pressure often. Invest a few dollars in a good dial-type tire pressure gauge and use it to check your tire pressure once a week. Even if the pressure is only a couple PSI low, you're burning a lot more fuel than you need to.

4. Change The Air Filter

If your engine's wheezing and has to work harder bringing in the air it needs to burn fuel efficiently, it doesn't complain to you. It simply burns more fuel. By replacing your air filter annually, or biannually if you live in a dusty area, you'll ensure the engine can breathe freely. Consult your owner's manual for filter changing instructions — it's usually a straightforward process. While it won't save you dollars per fill-up, it could save you at least the price of an air filter each year depending on your mileage.

5. Replace Your Spark Plugs
Worn spark plugs can't ignite the air/fuel mixture in your engine as effectively, resulting in more fuel used for a given amount of power produced. Depending upon the vehicle you drive, your spark plugs may need to be changed as often as yearly or as rarely as once a decade or so. Again, consult your owner's manual for details. Note that we're now getting into "real work." If you drive an older vehicle with an inline engine, changing plugs can be done in as little as an hour. A transverse V6, like that commonly found on minivans and domestic sedans, can be an entirely different story involving bloody knuckles, part removal, flex sockets, and extensive cursing. If your car is due for plug replacement and you're not up to the task, a competent shop should be able to do the work for a reasonable fee.

Once you've mastered these automotive basics, you can drive confident in the knowledge that you're doing everything you can to make your car as efficient as possible. Plus, you may have gained enough confidence that you're ready to tackle more complicated projects, so good luck and happy wrenching.

Color你知道是什么意思吗?

   一、引言词汇是语言的建筑材料[1](P2)。汉语和英语这两种语言中都存在大量色彩词汇,有趣的是,在不同的语言中对同一物体或现象却用不同颜色来加以描述。比如英语中的black tea,我们不可译为黑茶,而应译为红茶。汉语中的红白喜事我们英译为weddings and fun erals。颜色词除表示其具体实际的色彩外,还会由于不同国家的不同文化而具有不同的涵义。二、语言与文化学语言的目的是为了交流。人类的交际不单是一种语言现象,也是一种跨文化现象。在英语学习中,要对两种交际文化进行对比,我们首先从文化谈起。文化culture一词是一个含义极度其广泛的词语。它狭义指文学,音乐、美术等,而广义讲是一个社会学术语,按照社会学家和人类学家对"文化"所下的定义,我们所说的"文化"是指一个社会所具有的独特的信仰、习惯、制度、目标和技术的总模式。语言是文化的一部分,并对文化起着重要作用。没有语言就没有文化,语言又受文化的影响,反映文化。语言与文化互相影响,互相作用;理解语言必须了解文化,理解文化必须了解语言。中西方文化的差异很大程度上反映在用词。我们从红色、白色、黑色、黄色、蓝色这些颜色词汇来比较英语与汉语两种文化的差异,看语言和文化是如何相互影响的,了解为何英语语言学习中必须要学习了解文化。(一)红色1.汉语-英语红色象征革命和社会主义。在汉语和英语中都有用red(红)表示这种意义的词语,如:红卫兵(red guard)。英语中的Red(大写R)一词本身常用作共产主义者或共产党员的同义词,但有贬义。不过,有些带红字的汉语词语译成英语的red并表达原有的含义。例如,把又红又专译作redand expert表达不出汉语词语的原义
