Municipal government used a bunch of these as fleet/service vehicles. Many have well over 180k mi on them and still running strong when they were auctioning them off a few years ago. No idea if they...

Less salt saves money, but also allows ice to form. Safety > money. Also, if I recall correctly, Calgary has tested beet juice and molasses, it doesn't work well enough in that climate. No idea on...

For $1000 I would instead look into a ceramic coating applied by a professional (or applied by yourself). Look for a well-reviewed coating (there are quite a few good ones out there). After that, I'd...

Off topic, but I had to laugh when this guy pitched his "merchandise". Asking $35-50 for a small, signed/personalized photo that isn't even framed? Get real Dougie!
