Do you know that LPG gas cylinders have expiry dates?

Expired LPG cylinders are not safe for use
and may cause accidents..
In this regard,
please be cautious at the time of
accepting any LPG cylinder
from your vendor.

Here is how we can check on
the expiry of LPG cylinders:

On one of three side stems of the cylinder,
the expiry date is coded alpha numerically
as follows:
A or B or C or D
and some two digit number following this,
e.g. D06.

The alphabets stand for quarters -
1. A for March (first quarter),
2. B for June (second quarter),
3. C for September (third quarter), &
4. D for December (fourth quarter).
The digits stand for the year till it is valid.
Hence D06 would mean December quarter of 2006.
Please return back the cylinder that you get with an expired date.
They are prone to leaks and other hazards.

This second example of D13 allows the cylinder to be in use until December 2013.

Safety Alert !!! Phone Scam

Its all started when I received a call from someone claimed that he was Maxis asking me to shutdown phone for 2 hours for 3g update to take place. As I was rushing for a meeting, I did not question any shutdown my cell phone.

After 45 minutes I feel very suspicious since the caller did not even introduce his name. I quickly turned on back my cell phone back and I received several numbers of call; few numbers from my family members and the other numbers was from the number that call me before; 3954380.

I called my parents and I was shocked that they sounded very worry asking me whether I am safe. My parents told me that they received a call from someone claimed that they have me with them and asking for money to let me free.

The call was so real and my parents even heard my voice crying out loud asking for help. My parent was at the bank waiting for next call to proceed for money transfer. I told my parents that I am safe and asking them to lodge a police report.

Right after that I received again call from the guy asking me to shutdown my cell phone for another 1 hour which this time I refused to do so and hung up. They keep calling my cell phone until the battery run down. I myself lodge a police report and was informed by the officer that this kind of scam always reported. MOST of the cases reported that the victim already transferred the money! And it is impossible to get back the money. Bank can only returned back the money if the owners of the account agree to do so or there is a court order.

Guys, be careful that this kind of scam might happened to any of us!!!

Those guys are so professional and very convincing during calls. If you asked to shutdown your cell phone for updates by the service provider, ASK AROUND! Your friend should receive the same call.

Any Customer Service should introduce their NAME AT THE BEGINNING of the call. Ignore them if you don't get a name at the beginning of the call. If you received instructions from unrecognized number/person that you are not sure, make your own judgment. The BEST is DO NOT RESPONSE

If you cannot pickup your loved one's call, DO GIVE A CALLBACK immediately! Update your loved one with ALTERNATE CONTACT wherever you are

If you think you are SMART that you cannot be cheated, You are wrong!

Be Safe and Stay Alert!

SEE THROUGH TYRE. Tyres you don't need to inject air in future.

Radical new tyre design by Michelin. The next generation of tyres.They had a pair at the Philadelphia car show.

These tyres are airless and are scheduled to be out on the market very soon.The bad news for law enforcement is that spike strips will not work on these tyres.
This is what great R& D will do, and just think of the impact on existing technology:
A. no more air valves...
B. no more air compressors at gas stations...
C. no more repair kits...
D. no more flats...

These are actual pictures taken in the South Carolina plant of Michelin.

The Difference between RON92, RON95, RON97 and RON99


Understanding The Difference between RON92, RON95, RON97 and RON99

The Difference between RON92, RON95, RON97 and RON99

Many said that RON92 oil is the older oil, only suitable for older cars
or for cars that uses carburetor only. There are also some that said
that RON92 oil will make the engine dirty and also said that RON92 oil
is less powerful compared to RON97 and RON99. Before you make any false
assumptions, let us see what the real meaning of RON is.

RON stands for Research Octane Number. Octane number or octane rating
refers to the gasoline ability to withstand auto ignition (knocking)
inside the engine. Higher octane number refers to higher ability of the
oil to fight auto ignition. In other words, it means that RON95 is
harder to ignite compared to RON92.

Different vehicles are designed to be use with different octane number
of oil. Higher octane number oil is basically designed for high
performance vehicles such as sport vehicle and racing vehicle. Why is
that so? This is to avoid premature ignition of oil inside the engine
because of auto ignition, which happens before the spark plug ignite the
fuel. This phenomenon is known as knocking. Knocking is not wanted
because it reduces the performance of vehicle.

The right usage of octane number based on design and adjustment of
engine will maximize the performance and effectiveness of the vehicle.
Modern vehicles are equipped with knock sensor which enables it to
adjust its combustion timing automatically according to the oil octane
number to avoid knocking or premature ignition of oil.

Not all vehicles require high octane number petrol. You can check your
vehicle fuel requirement inside the guide book of your vehicle or you
can simply check the minimum Octane Rating at the back of the fuel lid
cover of your vehicle. Most cars can still use RON92.

Higher RON number does not means that it is more powerful. It means that
it is harder to ignite. It will also cost you more.

Additional Information
Higher RON may not result in better performance, it all depends on the compression ratio of the enigine in your car. Most of our cars have a compression ratio in between 9:1 and 10:1. Those who are driving super car, you might see a compression level of as high as 12:1 in your engine. (Please see and for more info).
In US, leaded fuel has an octane rating of RON110.
