Hercules Towing Service
I called Hercules Towing earlier today because my car wouldn't start. In my car, the battery is in the trunk under a removable access panel but the owner's manual instructs you to jump start the car using two remote terminals under the hood. I had already tried to jump start the car using the remote terminals to no avail so I assumed that there was a problem with my starter. When I called Hercules and explained the problem, off the top of his head, the person I spoke with knew about my car's unusual battery configuration and told me that because of the weird set-up, it was extremely difficult to jump start my car using the remote terminals under the hood. Before I spent a bunch of money on towing and having my car looked at by a mechanic, the employee suggested that I should try to jump start my car by connecting the cables directly to the battery in the trunk (contrary to what the owner's nick said). The guy even went so far as to walk me through how to remove the access panel. Sure enough, his advice was right on the money and my car started right up.Rather than tow my car needlessly and pocket my money, the employee spent 15 minutes on the phone with me explaining a way for me to avoid having to use his company in the first place. Needless to say, I'm thrilled. Hercules really went above and beyond. I will be recommending this company to anyone that will listen and when my car inevitably breaks down again, I will definitely go with Hercules.

The Towing Service (Accident Towing) Van Nuys
I am super happy with The Towing Service! There I was stranded with a blown out tire in the middle of a not-so-good neighborhood. I was on my way to work and a bit panicked because I had some urgent appointments to keep. I had called several other towing services and made arrangements with one that was supposed to call me back in 5 minutes to get directions and pick me up. I waited for twenty minutes and they never called. At this point I was not a happy camper. It had already been a long day; I was tired and waiting in a hundred degree weather. On top of that my phone battery was nearly dead! Fortunately I found The Towing Service online and gave them a call. I spoke to Mike who said he could pick me up in about 30 minutes. Like clockwork he shows up in 30 minutes, loads my truck on his flatbed and gets me to my destination in a timely manner. The service charge was very reasonable. They turned a bad day into a good day. Highly recommended!

Fresh Korean Barbeque
This Korean BBQ joint is probably the best in the valley. Cheap, all you can eat meat, good quality, mostly attentive service and their salad is THE BEST. The owner is really cool and she is almost is always there checking on customers. I would definitely recommend this to anyone if you are craving korean bbq and are in the area.

Spring Bok Bar & Grill
We stopped by after a round @ Van Nuys. Philly Cheesesteak was great! Waitress was very friendly. Could be a great place to watch a game. There's plenty of room and plenty of tables.

Tips & Advices
Driver can find the cheapest gas prices by using an app to search for the lowest prices in their area.  Some apps such as Gas Guru take note of your location, and provide a list of gas stations nearby, along with the cost of gas currently being sold at each station.
There are things you can do to slightly improve the fuel efficiency of your vehicle. Make sure your car's tires are properly inflated, and treat your engine to regular tune-ups. Check your engine's air filter, since a dirty air filter will compromise fuel economy.
Drivers must shut their engine off before pumping gas because it's illegal to fuel with the engine running, even though this law isn't always aggressively enforced. Pumping gas with the engine running can compromise your safety. When your car's engine is running, it's possible for its catalytic converters to generate heat that could ignite gasoline, and start a fire.
Even though many gas stations have warnings advising you not to use your cell phone while fueling, the chances of cell phones igniting a gasoline vapor fire are extremely remote. However, fires at the gas pump may be caused by static electricity discharge. For safe fueling, it's recommended that you turn off your car's engine and avoid smoking at the pump. Also, you should never re-enter your vehicle while refueling.
Many factors contribute to the lack of uniformity in gas prices. Retailers consider their tax responsibilities when setting gas prices. States place varying taxes on gasoline retailers, and a state with higher taxes will have higher gas prices than a state in which the taxes are lower. Also, if a gas station is located in an especially competitive area, a branded operator may receive wholesale discounts that allow the station to sell gas at a lower price. This is done by brands to keep their gas competitive in tight markets.
