Satellite radio based vehicle positioning system

Abstract
A vehicle positioning system architecture according to the invention employs a satellite radio system ("SRS") to deliver global positioning system ("GPS") correction data to vehicles. A vehicle having a compatible onboard positioning system receives standard GPS data from GPS satellites, along with SRS signals from SRS satellites and/or SRS terrestrial repeaters. The onboard vehicle positioning system corrects the GPS data with GPS correction data received via the SRS signals.

Fuel is the adrenaline of any car, truck or engine. Thus, it is every vehicle owner's wish to enhance the fuel of their car and save more of it as well. With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved.
