Tune-up Results In Engine Running Worse? Here's Why
Those of us who maintain our own vehicles or who want them to run top-notch at all times will do regular "tune ups" to keep things going strong. The term "tune up" is a generalized one used to describe replacing small parts associated with the fuel-air-spark (ignition) system of the vehicle and cleaning out some items which could affect those three things. The actual process of a tune-up will vary depending on the vehicle at hand.

Green Car Congress: CMU study finds controlled EV charging can reduce generation cost, but at greater health and environmental costs depending upon the generation mix
In a study focused on the PJM portion of the US electricity grid, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) found that although charging electric vehicles at night (when electricity is cheap and wind power is typically more plentiful) could lower electricity costs, doing so also creates more air emissions, and that the health and environmental costs from these emissions outweigh the electricity cost savings. A paper describing the work is published in the ACS journal Environmental Science & Technology.
