When it’s all over, one lucky person will win a beautiful, restored 1968 Ford Mustang V8 and bragging rights to a garage that will be the envy of the neighborhood – both online and off. That is, if one enters Purolator’s Garage-A-Thon promotion which kicked off August 29, 2011. Visit Purolator on Facebook, www.facebook.com/Purolator, for details.  

Sponsored by Purolator, manufacturer and supplier of top quality automotive filters to vehicle manufacturers and the aftermarket in North America, the Purolator Garage-A-Thon is a 6-week promotion for do-it-yourself (DIY) motorists in the U.S. who are proud of their home garage, want to put it on display and get the chance to win prizes.

Interested ‘garage owners’ should submit a photo of their garage along with a title of their garage and brief description to enter the contest. This gives the individual a chance to win a daily prize for eight weeks and compete for the grand prize of a Ford Mustang. Each individual can ask friends, family members, and their network of Facebook friends, to vote for their garage in the last 2 weeks of the promotion. The number of votes combined with the decision of a panel of judges will determine the sweepstakes winner.

“Our primary goal with the Purolator Garage-A-Thon promotion is to engage Purolator’s Facebook community of DIY consumers,” said Monica Christensen, brand manager, Purolator Filters. “The Purolator Garage-A-Thon promotion gives these enthusiasts an opportunity to show off their garage and, at the same time, have a chance to win daily prizes including oil filters, Purolator promotional items, Hendrick Motor Sports merchandise, Bosch power tools, or even a mini fridge. Plus, they have the chance to win a classic car.”

Purolator’s Garage-A-Thon photo contest is open to legal residents of the 48 contiguous United States and the District of Columbia, who are 18 years of age or older at time of entry.

Why Alternators Are Subject To Ripple Voltage

The alternator produces an AC current that must be converted into DC current by way of a rectifier.

lternators have been used to charge the 12V DC electrical systems in vehicles since long before computers and networks were part of the equation. Just a few decades ago, the 12V DC electrical system wasn’t that vulnerable to ripple voltage. Today however, excessive ripple voltage can cause major communication issues across networks and can cause a number of communication DTCs to be set in multiple control modules.
