The staff was courteous, well spoken, Friendly they took the vehicles in on time and were very professional and the way they went about doing the work. When the work was finished they got the car and brought it to the front of the office. The service and office areas were very clean and I complemented Them on the cleanness of the shop area

Purchased the alignment deal & truck drives perfect again. It was an after hours drop off & vehicle ready mid morning next day. Shop left invoice & keys in vehicle for “non contact” pick up. Will have to use shop for other maintenance in future.

They were welcoming, HONEST, and recommended a couple of things that probably should look into soon. They were upfront about the shop supplies fee which was only a few dollars but I appreciated the information upfront. They checked me in based on my appointment in a timely manner, and did a great job. Will be coming back for my other auto needs.

Excellent service. Very nice and knowledgeable. At one point I was told I would have to reschedule my appointment because I was using a groupon and I was 17 minutes late, but the manager came in and took me right away without me having to say a word. I will definitely go back when I need to.

Horsepower: An Estimate of Engines’ Energy

A fine-tuned engine performs at peak capacity, running smoothly and generating more horsepower. Read on to learn more about horsepower and what it means to work.

An engine that packs a lot of horsepower is an engine that is ready to work. The 18th-century engineer James Watt coined the term to help sell steam engines to mills and mining operations. Watt estimated that an average horse, per minute, could perform 33,000 foot-pounds of work—meaning it could pull 330 pounds a total distance of 100 feet. It was just a rough estimate, but Watt’s calculation has endured as an official unit for measuring engines’ work.

The Benefits of Horsepower

The Model T only had 20 horsepower, but modern cars have left Henry Ford’s creation in the dust. Popular cars, like the Camry or CR-V, house engines that provide 150+ horsepower, an ample amount for running errands and towing kids’ wagons behind them. High-performance luxury cars, meanwhile, boast more than 700 horsepower for more powerful acceleration, and trucks that need to carry heavy loads often fall within the 300–400 range.

Bonus Points

  • The unit could have just as easily been _pony_power, since Watt originally calculated that an average mine pony could do 22,000 foot-pounds of work. To arrive at horsepower, he simply increased that number by half.
  • Watt’s work on work was so influential that a fundamental unit of modern science bears his name.
  • Incidentally, the electrical equivalent of one horsepower is 746 watts, or roughly the same energy it takes to totally shred a Van Halen guitar solo.
