Avoid Costly Bumper Damage on your 2015 Ford Mustang With Curb Alert

We have a great tip for all of you 2015 Ford Mustang owners. Ford was generous to include a front splitter on all 2015 Ford Mustang models. This beautiful front splitter can become a nightmare very quickly when pulling into a parking spot or perhaps an aggressive speed bump. We’ve seen and heard the stories from Mustang owners, how they lose or damaged their front splitter while parking. We called local dealerships and a new front splitter from Ford will set you back about $300.00. A very easy and less expensive way to avoid replacing your front splitter on a regular basis is either, don’t drive your Mustang, or simple purchase a Curb Alert bumper warning protection system. These nifty little units sell for roughly $149.00 and will warn you as you approach a curb or high area in the road.

2015 Ford Mustang Curb Alert

The 2015 Ford Mustang Curb Alert is very easy to install and does not put a drain on your battery when the car is not on. Using a patented infrared technology, the front mounted sensor is calibrated to a warning distance of anywhere from 8-28″ (you decide with whatever you feel comfortable with). The warning alarm is hidden in the car and will give you three gentle tones when you are within a specified distance to the curb. The system gives you a short beep every time you start your car to let you know the system is active.

The Mustang Curb Alert is one of a kind and is a gadget that will save you money in the long run, preventing front end damage to any car that is low enough to be vulnerable to a Curb. Do not take a chance, get the Curb Alert to prevent curb damage.

2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Requires Hi-Grade Fuel

The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost comes equipped with a turbo charged 4 cylinder motor. We all have vivid memories of the last Mustangs that came with 4 cylinders….please help us forget. This new 2015 Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost really pounds out a lot of power, numbers we find claim 310hp and 320ft lp torque. Not too shabby for a Mustang with 4 cylinders – heck those numbers are impressive.

The good news about the EcoBoost requiring hi-grade fuel is the fact that the fuel prices have dropped about 50% throughout the United States in the past six months. We hope they stay at these prices for many years to come. The EcoBoost really loses a lot of it’s power when regular 87 unleaded is pumped into it’s engine. The web forum www.mustang6g.com has posted reports of large power loses when lower grade fuel is used. We do not have exact numbers, but from what we see over at Mustang6G it would seem the users are right.

To recap, if you own a 2015 Mustang EcoBoost then you will want to make sure you pump in the expensive stuff if you want to achieve ultimate performance. If you aren’t worried about drag racing, then opt for the lower grade fuel and save money in your pocket book.
