Whetu Haanraads. suv. July 25th , 2017.
First up is the Forester which has a taller centre of gravity due to a slightly higher ground clearance of 220mm compared to the Mazdas 150mm of clearance. Despite this the Forester is a pleasure to drive, it feels surprisingly accurate and light in the steering compared to the Mazda CX-5. The Forester has plenty of punch for a diesel and it is paired with a new continuously variable transmission (CVT) that should sound noisy but isnt due to a series of steps that have been added which mimic a regular transmission.
So, while I'm walking, generating heat and thus hot air between me and the coat, it condenses and turns to moisture on the inside of the coat not letting it escape. The same thing will happen to your car if you use a plastic car cover. Yes, plastic is 100% waterproof.... but both ways. Not good for preserving your car. Remember the mould and mildew...it'll eat your paintwork.
In the past they had some issues around EPA approval and they were in a pickle to grow a network of dealers because the car manufacturers didn't want to work with them. It must have taken the recent downturn and the almost total collapse of SUV and truck sales to get a little more open minded towards technologies available right now. Dutchman Enterprises send me the latest update below today, and I feel anybody interested in ways to reduce gas mileage would want to stay up to date. I realize that adopting a new technology that hasn't been approved by any large manufacturer is tough.
1978...W.L. Gore invented Gore-Tex. I could go into the science of it all here, mentionning surface energy, surface tension, microns and pores per square inch or metre but basically all you need to know is that this man-made fibre has microscopic holes in it that big waterdrops can't penetrate while small water vapour moisture drops can. Meaning big raindrops on the out side stay out and tiny moisture drops on the inside, created by you, can escape, thus keeping you dry.
