The settlement announced this week by VW will reward owners handsomely, according to an analysis by Autolist. Thousands of U.S. consumers have been stuck with vehicles they assumed were good for the environment. But VW admitted last fall that the onboard computer adjusted the diesel emissions when it sensed an emissions test was taking place. During the tests, the emissions were reduced to within standards. The rest of the time, the cars gave off emissions well above legal standards. As a result, VW agreed to a more than $14 billion settlement, requiring it to buy back affected vehicles and terminate leases, as well as pay consumers cash reparations. After studying the details of the deal, Autolist concludes consumers will come out ahead. The company reports nominal vehicle value has gone down an average of $2,017 because of the diesel emissions cheating scandal. Owners, meanwhile, are getting $5,100 to $10,000 settlement rep...

Volvo’s 18-tonne FE Low Entry 4×2 is a manoeuvrable and versatile workhorse that will suit many

Volvo’s 18-tonne FE Low Entry 4×2 is a manoeuvrable and versatile workhorse that will suit many an urban operation and offers a driving experience similar to a regular FE. Getting to drive this Volvo FE Low Entry 4×2 in rural Gloucestershire involved something of an international journey. It started life as a regular medium-roof sleeper cab in the shared Volvo Group facility at Blainville, in Normandy, France. From there, it moved to the Netherlands, where the low-entry semi-crew cab conversion was carried out by Estepe. Then it continued north to Kristinehamn in central Sweden, where the long established (and long named) Bro Bärgningsbyggen AB recovery vehicle manufacturer fitted the car transporter body. After that, it was a short hop to Volvo HQ at Gothenburg to join the central demonstration fleet, before the longer trek back south for us to drive. On the way, it stopped off to pick up an authentic load, too – a shiny Volvo XC90. The FE Low Entry has its roots in the UK, initially designed as a specific solution to operating in London, but has now become a fully- edged model in its own right and is offered on many markets. The Volvo had barely stopped moving at th...

To get the most out of your 3D printer it needs be calibrated. Check out the

To get the most out of your 3D printer it needs be calibrated. Check out the best 3D printer calibration cube models and learn how to use them. Calibration cubes are simple geometric shapes (usually cubes, hence the name) that help you fine-tune your 3D printer’s settings. They enable you to achieve maximum precision and accuracy in your prints. These cubes are particularly important for assembly-required kits and lower-end machines that have not been factory-tuned. With these cubes, you can adjust your printer’s settings to produce precise, mechanical parts. There are many ways to use calibration cubes. Before we get started, however, be sure to calibrate your 3D printer’s extruder. This will ensure that any defects will be strictly mechanical and not caused by extrusion inaccuracies. What is it? The simple, classic, 20-mm cube, with its faces labeled X, Y, and Z. Also the most popular, due to its simplicity and ease of use. You should aim for each dimension (easily identified with the large letters) to be 20 mm. What is it? An amped-up version of the classic calibration cube. It features 4 layers, at 25 mm, 20 mm, 15 mm, and 10 mm, with a notch at the front to indicate orienta...
