  • Check your vehicle's octane requirements for altitude. One reason you found 85 octane was that you were at altitude and the octane requirements were lower. This can have a detrimental effect when travelling out of the mountains, as you used high altitude fuel and are now at low altitude. My last long trip we encountered a heavy headwind and our fuel economy dropped by more than 30%, taking a 500 mile range down to 350 miles, this put us in the desperate level for finding a fuel station where there were none.

  • Octane boosters are nearly useless, a bottle might change your 85 octane fuel to 85.1 octane. Instead, buy a gallon of xylene or toluene, which can increase 9 gallons of 85 octane to 88 octane. 8+2 will give you 91 octane.

  • Great video and excellent tips. I have 2 sealed avalon king kits I didn't have time to apply before the rally and definitely w/h been useful on the windshield. The bugs were brutal. I used my portable air compressor me than once, so definitely a must. I brought more supplies than we needed, but was prepared for almost anything. Btw, I'm lazy and all my livery is still on, but even when I take it off, the peace sign is staying. Thanks for the video and memories. Until next year. #DBR #findyourroad

  • One other thing you want to consider purchasing: the Premier membership of AAA. That gives you 1 tow of up to 200 miles; 3 more tows of up to 100 miles; and various roadside assistance options. Make sure to buy it at least 2 weeks before your trip to ensure you ahve the full coverage. For $113 per year ($61 over standard membership), it has saved me tons of money.

    • Except for when you call them and wait 3 hrs for them to show up and say sorry. Cant tow your vehicle since its on the ground. This happened to me 2 weeks ago when I hit a curb and destroyed my lower control arm and axle trying to avoid some jackass on his phone running a red light.

  • I was literally sitting just out of view while he was filming this. It was such a hoot. Constant interruptions from vehicles driving by. The side of the road looks cool, but not the best for sound. :) The Dustball Rally is amazing, y'all! If you've ever considered it, just do it. I will absolutely be back next year. Jared isn't joking about the hydration... omg. I didn't listen the first day and felt like garbage after a day of driving. It's worth the pit stops to stay hydrated!

  • Along with water, here's some more essentials for yourself: - An assortment of snacks that keep well and can be consumed easily - Music that everyone in the car can agree on, and a variety of it. The last time I drove across the country with the wife, we had about 5 albums on our phones that we could both agree on, and by the time we got home, we were sick of all of them. A lot of parts of Canada just don't have local radio because there's just nothing around for 100+ miles except a road and maybe a gas station. - Pain relievers like Acetaminophen/Paracetamol and Ibuprofen - Nausea/Diarrhea relief like Dimenhydrinate & Loperamide - A first aid kit with bandages/gauze/etc. And a couple specific things: - If you have severe allergies, an epinephrine device and diphenhydramine (take care not to drive after taking diphenhydramine, as it can cause drowsiness) - If you're diabetic, make sure your testing supplies are up to date, buy a spare battery for your glucometer (it's usually a CR2032, but check your meter), and have MEASURED glucose on hand like glucose tablets. The last thing you want to deal with on the road is low blood sugar, especially when you're driving. - Any other equipment to monitor medical conditions if you have them (blood pressure monitor, etc.), and batteries to operate them. Apologies if you have trouble reading the names of medications, but I don't know what brands these are sold as in other countries, so I don't want to send people on weird witch hunts for a brand name that doesn't exist.

  • Something very unexpected happened to us in 1980. Our car was a 1977 Olds Cutlass sedan. We had to drive to Houston, a six hour trip for us, because mother-in-law had surgery there. Upon arrival at a gas station for a Houston map, there was no reverse when backing up from the parking spot. There was an incline so the car rolled backwards. I then shifted to Drive and nothing. It was a shock to be stranded in a distant city with no extra money or credit card in a 75,000 mile car. My wife’s cousin came to the rescue. Don’t recall why it failed but we got back home, late for work.

  • 1. Clean the windshield. Coat it with Rainx etc. 2. Windshield wipers 3. Check your tires including spare (tread life, tire pressure) 4. Have a tire repair kit. Air compressor, and jack 5. Spare fluids (oil,transmission,water) 6. You (hydrate) 7. Know your fuel range 8. Octane booster (if you got a high performance car)

  • to make your car use as less fuel as possible; ease off the throtte 2000-2500RPM is optimal rev range of gas/ethanol cars and diesel should stay at 1300-1500RPM always look to have your car in overdrive or final gear because you will look to go faster but you gotta coast at low RPM for most range so both worlds kinda meet there check all of your electric stuff like lights,charging system,ignition system etc. because if something electric related fails you will certainly have a target on your back for cops

  • Also a Tip: Do the fluid change and maintance works NOT directly before the trip. Do it 1 or 2 weeks earlyer. So if there is something not thighten right or something fails, it will happen in the near of your home/garage - so its easyer to fix than on the road!

  • I always keep a can of energy drink and some snacks in the car on long drives, if I start to drift off before I reach my stopping point I pull over and take these and they wake me up enough to get to a safe stopping point to rest. Probably wouldn't be needed if you had multiple drivers but generally I am the only driver.

  • Its one thing to have a tool kit for your car tire, you should have a tool kit with wrenches and sockets and such in case the car breaks down. As long as it is simple fix, a regular tool kit will help you with those fixes.

  • Here's a comment that you oughta read road trippers> I'm glass installer by trade and something I have to to a lot in the summer is clean bugs off of windshields. Here's the best way, coating not required but I have purchased it and will be applying it soon. Get a small piece of regular household window screen a little bigger than your hand (not the metal stuff that still exists for no reason.) Buy good Foaming glass cleaner (the cheap crap is a waste of money, you'll use more and it will leave streaks) and a box of nitrile gloves (because those always come in handy on a road trip for all kinds of situations and really make this job a lot cleaner for your personal hygiene) Oh and obviously you'll need some decent paper towel. Now you've got the supplies here's the method I've found that works best after over 20 years of doing what i do. Park in the shade if possible, in the sun your glass cleaner will dry out quickly and it's more difficult to clean hot glass. Apply a liberal coat of the foaming glass cleaner and let it soak for a couple minutes Put your gloves on and use the piece of window screen to scrub the bugs off ( this is surprisingly easy) Do a quick wipe with your paper towel to take off most of the debris and then a final clean with one more lighter spray of the glass cleaner and some fresh paper towel That's it! bugs easily gone in a couple minutes and you got gloves just in case you need to remove a dead animal from your undercarriage, or touch something else thats gross or dirty

  • One thing I've always kept in my cars (but never needed, thankfully) is a first aid kit. I keep two in the car- One small kit for basically easy-access bandages and asprin in the glove box, along with a larger one (for sutures, major cuts, etc.) in the trunk. Also, I would recommend a flashlight, a battery operated fan, & a small blanket. The flashlight is for breaking down at night (so you can see/flag people down), the fan is for breaking down in hot weather (stay at least a bit cool), and the blanket is for breaking down in cold weather (so you can stay warm).

  • Road trip tips not mentioned in the video: Take a change of clothes and extra underwear, deodorant, a toothbrush, toothpaste, mouthwash, and soap, and other personal hygiene products. You never know when you end up having to stay overnight unexpectedly. Take a small toolkit that has the basic necessary sockets and spanners for simple repairs if you find yourself on the side of the road. Before leaving on the road trip, make sure your cooling system is in good shape, that the hoses are not cracked, stiff, ballooned or brittle. The same goes for the accessories belts. And finally, make or download a good playlist that can be listened to even when out of range of cell service.

  • One of the things i've learned, and in "addition" to , after seeing many videos do this, CARRY a TOOL SET in case you do have to work on the car if it breaks down. That way if you're near by a parts store, can easily get backup and going with that tool set, otherwise you're going to have to pay full price or find a harbor freight near by, which will hamper time doing those things.

  • I would recommend carrying a full-size spare(equipped with the same tire) , an actual 5 gallon Jerry can of 93 octane(living in VA has one perk), spark-plugs, alternator,serpentine belt(I've had some bad experiences) , Some snacks (if something goes wrong you don't want to be hungry), a case of spring water, something for self defense (if your driving an exotic don't expect everyone you meet to be sane) , clothing (brown , do I need to explain this?), if you have the means or some really good friends a support vehicle (preferably an RV/High-top long-wheelbase conversion van, to leave the hotels behind for a more scenic evening), If traveling with children bring some decent headphones and a few portable consoles(PS vita , Nintendo switch, Desktop replacement class Laptop), lastly bring a happy attitude(this can make or break any trip). pre-trip checklist: Tire pressure, Brake pads, Brake fluid, Engine coolant, Engine oil, Differential fluid, Transmission Fluid, Cargo, Bank balance, Fuel quality at destination, Fuel quality going to the destination, Average mpg at cruising speed, Weather(dictates tires equipped), Bowels/Bladders, Windshield status(front and rear), Exterior lights(they'd better be working, throw in a few extra bulbs), Weapon storage(make sure you have ammunition and proper travel documents; america isn't as safe as it was before march) , Battery banks(in the event your stranded at night and you don't have an engine bay light) , Mental state of all drivers, Mental state of passengers. p.s , probably not a bad idea to bring a gps/phone (dedicated to gps functions, with a saved map ; doesn't need to be fancy just needs to work)

  • If you are somewhere that you can't get the octane level gas you need, put in the octane booster and then the gas - but DO NOT FILL IT UP. Put in enough gas to get yourself to a real gas station and then fill up with the good stuff. Also, pay attention to how much the boost actually is. I know the containers I read talked about "points" - which amounted to one-tenth of an octane level. You cannot put in a small container of octane boost on a full tank and expect much improvement.
