Brock University Students: 3 Automotive Life Hacks You Should Learn

Driving is one of those things we tend to take for granted, but most of us don’t really know what’s going on in the complex depths of the machines we pilot. If you’re a Brock University student and you own a car, these three life hacks will help you when it’s time to get from A to B, and to understand your vehicle a little bit better.

Hack #1: The Arrow Marks Where Your Gas Cap Is

We’ve all eyed our fuel gauge nervously when that light pops on, but even though we stare at it, we often miss one of the most important details. That little arrow on the gauge? That tells you which side of the car your gas cap is on. Important to remember if you can never seem to back the correct side up to the pump.

Hack #2: Use Toothpaste To Make Your Headlights Shine

Your headlights are one of your most important safety features on your car, but they can get dingy and cloudy over time. If you want to brighten them up, scrub them with toothpaste. You’ll get clean, bright beams shining right through the next night.

Hack #3: Use Your Floormats To Get Out of a Jam

How many times has your car gotten stuck in snow, mud, or slush? If you just had a bit of a solid surface to drive on, you could pop right out of that rut. If you’re in desperate straits, push your floormats under the tires. They’ll give you an additional bit of grip, and often help you get back on the road. Of course, if you have cheap floormats, this will also tear them right up.
