Myth or Fact: Car Edition
When it comes to car care and vehicle maintenance, there’s a lot of information out there. Sahabat Insurance is here to help you debunk popular car care myths and tell you what’s important to know. About filling gas. When is the best time to get your oil changed? When should you change your tires?

When at the gas station you have to turn off your cellphone? Really? There has been no definitive research on the relationship between cell phone signals and fires at gas stations. The possibility of burning could be due to the occurrence of static electricity or an exploding HP battery. However, it never hurts to save your cellphone while refueling.

Shaking the car while filling the gas will fill the tank perfectly
This is a myth, because today's modern car will be filled perfectly without being shaken. Especially when shaken there will be metal friction between the tip of the nozzle and the vehicle, and it can cause sparks.

People believe their oil should be changed every 10,000km. Is this myth or fact?
In fact, oil can be changed every 10,000km or every 6 months. But, it depends on how often you use the vehicle. The kilometer reference is not always the right benchmark to know when to change the oil? The reason is because the performance of the engine will be heavier according to how the driver drives and the road that is crossed.

Car Tires Also Need Rest, Myth Or Fact? Tires don't really need to be rested to follow the driver's rest. If the surface of the tire is slippery, it's time for the tire to retire.

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever

Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever is a mosquito-borne disease that occurs in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. For mild dengue fever, it will cause a high fever and flu-like symptoms.

Many people have no signs or symptoms of dengue hemorrhagic fever infection. When symptoms do occur, they are mistaken for other illnesses, such as the flu. Usually symptoms will appear from four to 10 days after you are bitten by a mosquito.
This disease can cause a high fever of up to 40 degrees Celsius. In addition, some other symptoms, including:

  • Headache.
  • Muscle, bone or joint pain.
  • Nausea and vomiting.
  • Pain behind the eyes
  • Swollen glands.
  • Rash.
Dengue Fever Prevention
  • Use air conditioning or mosquito nets installed in the vents and beds. In addition, mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus are most active from dawn to dusk, but they can also bite at night.
  • Wear protective clothing when you go to mosquito-infested areas, wear long sleeves, long pants, socks and shoes.
  • Use insect repellents such as permethrin as they can be applied to clothing, shoes, camping gear, and mosquito nets. You can also buy clothes made with permethrin already in them. For skin, use a repellent that contains at least a 10 percent concentration of DEET.
  • Reducing mosquito habitat by closing standing water. Mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus usually live in and around homes, breeding in standing water that can congregate on used car tires. You can help reduce mosquito populations by eliminating the habitats where they lay their eggs. At least once a week, empty and clean containers that contain standing water, such as planting containers, animal dishes, and flower vases. Keep the water container closed between cleanings.
