Episode 14 - Vehicle maintenance and tips to save you money

Welcome to another episode of the Be Prepared Channel. In this podcast we talk about how the global supply chain can affect you and your vehicle. We talk about tips and sources of information that can save you a lot of time, headaches, and money. Recommended things you should know, and things you should consider having on hand in your spares kit for your vehicle. And of course we touch upon upgrades/improvements to your vehicle that potentially could make your car more efficient, and more reliable.

Useful URL's to sites referenced in this podcast: (hypermiler central!)
