All Weather Floor Mats (2010 Ford Fusion/Mercury Milan)

One of the first things to show the wear and tear in a car is the carpet. All the climbing in and out, with wet feet, muddy feet, snowy feet, and slushy feet can wreak havoc on your car. (By the way, we think slushy feet would make a great band name). You can protect your car’s carpets and keep them clean with the All-Weather Floor Mats made for your 2010 Ford Fusion or 2010 Mercury Milan. The deeply sculpted channels will trap water, road salt, mud, and sand, and the anti-skid ridges will keep the mats from sliding around the floor wells, unlike those cheap floor mats.

Pulse Prius Spark Plug Lowers MPG and Increased Performance

Pulse Spark Plug – and here’s why its technology should be in your engine. Until now, every gallon of gas you bought was ignited by a simple spark plug- an outmoded technology that has barely changed in 100 years. But now you can change to a new eco-friendly pulse plug that uses an advanced technology to make every drop of gas burn better and cleaner.

These plugs may look similar to spark plugs on the outside, but inside the technological advances of are evident. Pulse plugs feature a unique capacitor-based circuit that captures energy normally wasted by spark plugs and generates a spark with 10 times greater energy than any spark plug.

Here’s how it works: Electrical energy from the engine’s power coil is stored in the built-in capacitor. At the exact moment needed, that energy is released in an amazingly powerful and quick high-energy pulse.

Note the visibly larger spark of the Pulstar pulse plug on the right

Note the visibly larger spark of the Pulstar pulse plug on the right. The result: The improved combustion efficiency burns fuel sooner and more effectively, which equals improved mpg, less CO2 based emissions, and better overall drivability.  Even the green get greener!  For example, in this EPA US06 fuel consumption lab test, even the icon of fuel economy and eco-friendliness- the Toyota Prius- saw notable improvements in mpg.

Performance – Looking for more engine horsepower? Pulse plugs create horsepower by generating more peak power than spark plugs.

None of them treat performance at the epicenter : fuel ignition.

Pulse plugs have 10 times more peak power than spark plugs and ultimately improve the performance of your vehicle as well as the performance of all aftermarket performance products. Pulse plugs simply ignite fuel better and should be the very first step in improving your engine’s performance.

Test results:

  • 4.4 more mpg
  • Reduces CO2  by a quarter ton annually.
  • Increased Horse Power
  • Pulse plugs last 50,000 miles and/or 4 years
  • Will not harm your engine or void the warranty

Prius Body Kit By Kenstyle 2004-2009 (3 pc Kit)

Want a whole new Prius without buying a whole new Prius? Try the Prius Body Kit by Kenstyle for the 2004 – 2009 model Priuses (or is that Prii?). We import our kits directly from Japan, where they’re produced with the highest standards of quality. You can buy the entire kit, or just pieces of it: a front spoiler, side panels (spats), and a rear valance. You’ve seen these kits zipping around town, look sleek, unique, and very personal. The kits are made with FRP — fiber reinforced plastic — which is a combination of fiberglass, plastic, and flex resins, which create very durable, impact-resistant components. The FRP process ensures our products are free from normal fiberglass deficiencies including waviness, spider cracks, chips, and gel coat damage. Each kit come finished with a gel coat, and is ready to paint. FRP products are in wide use, even on Corvettes, and on several Formula 1 race cars. So if it’s good enough for Corvettes and European racers, think of what it’ll do for your Prius.

THULE Ski and Snowboard Rack

Because nothing says “TO THE EXTREME!!” like an eco-friendly gas-electric hybrid engine, you need a way to haul your skis and snowboards to your favorite mountain. (Do people even say “to the extreme” anymore?) The THULE Ski and Snowboard Rack can hold up to 4 pairs of skis or 2 snowboards while you head to the mountains (or the really flat land if you’re a cross-country skier). The extended bracket allows thicker ski bindings, while the locking arm holds skis and snowboards securely in place, so you don’t have to worry about whether they safely made the trip. Works great with the Prius Receiver Hitch from Curt Manufacturing.
