Gas price is still high. I checked it on VancouverGasPrices.com and saw the gas price of ESSO nearby is 126.9.
Now, ESSO has a new program, ESSO EXTRA Privileges. With it, we can save money.
Here is a privileges card I received yesterday. The front shown 5 cents per litre. This card has discount, which can reduce the price by 5 cents per litre, no matter which gas you choose. This reward card hold 200L gas for savings. So, it is $10.00 in total.
When I add gas at ESSO gas station, with my speedpass, I collect ESSO points. To redeem these points, I have a lot of choices, from chips to Red Bull. But, I prefer to redeem a privileges card.
I did the AirCare vehicle inspection this Monday. It is required by my auto-insurance renewal letter.
As we living in BC, ICBC is the only insurance company we can purchase basic auto insurance. We can buy excess third party liability or umbrella policy from other company. ICBC also issue driver license, vehicle registration, etc. It is a Crown company.
Based on the information I got, it is the last year of AirCare program.
The AirCare Program will end after December 31, 2014.
Until that time, ALL eligible 2007-and-older modlel year vehicles will require and AirCare test prior to their 2014 re-licensing. My car is 2005 Pontiac Montana SV6. So This is the second time it took the AirCare Inspection. The first time is 2012, when it is 7 years old.
This is my AirCare report:
The final result is PASS. Then, I can renewal my insurance and re-license with this report. If fail, extra cost for repairing will be needed and re-inspect the care.
The current testing contract with Envirotest Canada to provide light-duty vehicle emissions testing in this region runs until December 31, 2014. The Province has announced that light-duty vehicles will no longer require emissions testing after this date.
I saw the new device in the parking lot of Brentwood Mall. It looks like below.
Electric Vehicle Charging Station. New type of energy. Clean energy. CO2 free energy.
It is used to charge Electric Vehicle. If it is a mini-van, 5 to 8 hours of standard charging, 3-4 hours of fast charging. It is the length of time to full charging the mini-van.
I took the picture and googled it.
Leviton is the solution provider. The real company running this service is ChargePoint.
It is the first time that I replace rear turn signal of Pontiac Montana SV6. I am not a handy man. I just like to play computer only.
