Chrysler Canada Recieves Conservation Partner Award

chrysler logoAs Chrysler Canada celebrates their 88th anniversary this year, so shall they also celebrate the honor of receiving the prestigious 2012 Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters (OFAH)/Mike Reader Conservation Partner Award. Here at Crestview Chrysler in Regina, we just couldn’t be more proud.

With well over 100,000 members, subscribers, and supporters, and 710 member clubs, the OFAH is indeed the oldest and largest nonprofit fish and wildlife conservation organization in Canada. Recognized for almost four decades of support, Chrysler Canada began working with OFAH by providing prized vehicles in the Federation’s annual OFAH/Conservation Lottery and today, some 37 years later, continues to provide vehicles as prize initiatives to fund imperative fish and wildlife conservation across the province.

Chrysler Canada also supports the OFAH by providing vehicles for official business, whether on or off-road, and is an active supporter of Angler & Hunter Television (AHTV), providing vehicles for host, Mike Miller. The infamous AHTV has been on the air for two decades now, delivering the conservation messages of OFAH, and will air on Outdoor Life Network (OLN) for the first time this season.

Chrysler Canada will award a quartet of Chrysler Group vehicles for the 2013 year with OFAH, including a 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan, a 2013 Dodge Journey, and two 2013 Ram 1500’s representing the first and second grand prizes. Although Chrysler Canada has worked alongside the OFAH for quite a many years, this is the first time this prestigious award has been given to Chrysler Canada. The OFAH/Mike Reader Conservation Partner Award was presented on March 16th at the 85th OFAH Annual General Meeting and Fish & Wildlife Conference in Mississauga, Ontario.

Do You Know the Difference Between Gasoline and Diesel?

Crestview Chrysler Polled on Knowledge of Different Fuel Types

Crestview ChryslerRecently, we asked fans of our Crestview Chrysler Facebook page if they knew the difference between gasoline, kerosene, and diesel fuel types. Most drivers know that gasoline, probably the most common fuel for consumer vehicles, is derived from crude oil. What many people don’t know is that kerosene and diesel come from crude oil as well, or what these two fuels are commonly used for.

 

 

Getting Energy From Crude Oil

Though there are some vehicles that run on battery-powered electric motors, most vehicles are powered by an internal combustion engine that needs a fuel source. When the fuel is ignited, it releases its stored energy, driving the necessary components to make the engine go.

But where does this energy come from? Most of the energy on Earth starts with the sun. Crude oil, or petroleum, is the result of plant matter, typically plankton and algae, being put under intense heat and pressure. While living, these plant life forms converted sunlight into chemical energy which is then stored. Thus when we burn petroleum, that energy is released and turned into mechanical energy in our engines.

Petroleum can be distilled into different, more useful components. These different components have different boiling points, making separating them a simple process of heating and capturing, much like distilling alcohol. The components of gasoline have the lowest boiling points, followed by kerosene, then diesel.

Gasoline has many uses besides being used in automobile engines. It is used in smaller engines like lawnmowers, and is also a component of many jet fuels. During the mid-nineteenth century, kerosene was used in many vehicles because it was a cheaper alternative to gasoline. Today, it’s used primarily for heating and lighting. Diesel is used in large vehicles, but also in smaller cars because it’s a more fuel-efficient than gasoline.
