How to Use Engine Sensors For Best MPG – Engine, Engine, How Do I See Thee? Let Me Count the Ways

Engines are complex machines are controlled by a computer called the ECU or Engine Control Unit. This little baby is the brains of the car. But even the ECU is deaf and dumb unless it has the proper input. Sensors provide the input to the ECU. used engines

This article is about these sensors. The ECU is further subdivided into different functions but for this article suffice to say that it makes the decisions based on sensor input.

There’s a plethora of sensor suites in a car that track a host of functions. A car’s ECU controls “ignition timing, fuel delivery, emission controls, transmission shifting, cruise control, engine torque reduction (if the vehicle has antilock brakes with traction control) and charging output of the alternator.”

To be more specific, here are some of the more important sensors for the ECU:

Coolant Sensor. The ECU monitors the temperature of the coolant so it can determine it can switch its mode into a “closed loop feedback fuel control” after startup. After startup, the engine is usually cold and designers left the engine in open loop mode until it the ECU determines it reaches the right operating temperature to switch to closed loop.

During open loop, the engine is not being very efficient and gas is wasted because the mix is too rich uncontrolled. Damaged coolant sensors will also cause this.

Oxygen (O2) Sensor. O2 Sensors are usually located near the exhaust manifold of most cars. There can be about 1 to as much as 4 O2 sensors in cars. The role of the O2 sensor is to measure the amount of unburned oxygen in the exhaust. They do this by comparing the temperature inside the exhaust pipe to that of the outside atmosphere. This sends a signal to the ECU to adjust the air-fuel mix and timing accordingly.

Damaged O2 sensors will also cause the ECU to deliver an air-fuel mix that is too rich for the engine.

Manifold Absolute Pressure (MAP) Sensor. MAP sensors are located near the intake manifold to measure engine load or the intake vacuum.

When vacuum occurs, the engine is usually on idle and the ECU will shift the timing and fuel ratio accordingly. When the car is running, the engine is taking in more air, which signals the ECU to enrich the mixture for more power. Vacuum is still present but is variable when the engine is in operation.

Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor. The MAF sensor detects the volume of air entering the engine. It’s vital element is usually a heated filament that is put against incoming air in the tube to measure airflow and density. Changes in temperature sends a signal to the ECU to respond to the needs of the engine accordingly.

Throttle Position Sensor (TPS). The TPS monitors the throttle position which accordingly measures the engine’s load, acceleration, deceleration, idle or wide open. The ECU utilizes this data to determine the air-fuel ratio adjustments.

Crankshaft Position Sensor (CPS). The CPs is used to determine the position of the crankshaft and number 1 cylinder. This specifically is used to control the timing of ignition and the injection of fuel. This can also measure the RPM (revolutions per minute).

Failure of the CPS will render the car inoperable.

The Effect of 3Rd Party Mods

Manufacturers usually would warn against 3rd party modifications to the engine or electronics. Despite this a large industry has sprung up to take advantage of some shortcomings of standard production vehicles.

One area of 3rd party modification involves improving the air-fuel mixture with other substances. More specifically hydrogen.

Hydrogen is a gaseous substance that is combustible. The benefits of the introduction of hydrogen to internal combustion is that:

-Engines become more quieter, knocking and pinging is reduced -Emissions give off a cleaner burn -Hydrogen when burned turns to water vapor out the tailpipe -Hydrogen raises the octane level of gasoline, encouraging combustion at the piston’s top dead center -Less fuel is used when mixed with hydrogen, giving better fuel economy. -The engine is cooled which promotes better performance

Things to consider:

Introduction of hydrogen to a regular internal combustion engine will in time influence the ECU to enrich the mixture further. This is due to the O2 sensor detecting more oxygen in the exhaust.

The ECU is programmed from the factory to maintain a “stochiometric” or air-fuel mixture of about 14.7 parts oxygen to 1 part fuel. Even if the engine is performing better at a leaner mixture, it is only capable of following its programming.

The ECU will then pump more fuel into the mixture to meet the 14.7:1 ratio, ruining performance.

There is still hope!

Fortunately, the problem with the ECU can be addressed. The introduction of a controller to the ECU’s sensors can nudge the ECU to accept a leaner fuel mix with no need for expensive modifications:

These are by far the most easily modifiable with the least cost between $20 to over $100 USD.

Are these safe?

Hydrogen systems have been tried and tested by dozens of alternate fuel enthusiasts for years and they attest to the safety of both systems.

Several hydrogen generation systems have already been developed to deliver hydrogen-as-needed-only. When the engine is off, the danger of hydrogen sparks is nil because the process to create hydrogen is by electricity in a water medium. No electricity, no hydrogen.

As an alternate fuel enhancement, hydrogen technology has matured and delivers the best value in terms of return on investment over other more expensive enhancement systems.

How to Compare Lottery Strategies

When it comes to improving your chances of winning the lottery, there are really only two things you can do.

1. Buy more tickets.

2. Improve your odds of winning.

For example, if the odds of winning the lottery jackpot are 1:2,500,000, you can improve your chances of winning to 1:100,000 if you buy 25 wagers. But, for those of us who would prefer to use our brain rather than our money, we use a lottery software program to improve our chances of winning the lottery jackpot before we spend money on wagers. satta

Obviously, method #2 is preferable because it allows you to stretch your lottery budget while maintaining similar coverage of all possible wagers. In other words, if you can improve your odds of winning to 1:100,000 using various lottery number analysis techniques, then you only have to buy 1 wager to have the same odds. So, if you’re a serious lottery player, purchasing a good lottery software program is a no-brainer. It pays for itself in a couple of weeks.

An intelligent lottery player tries to cover as many of the possible winning wagers as possible. I call this your Lottery Footprint or LFP. Environmentalists use a similar term, Carbon Footprint, to describe the effect each of us has on global warming. However, the environmentalists want a small Carbon Footprint and serious lottery players want a large Lottery Footprint. The larger the LFP the better your chances of winning are.

I’ve created a simple formula for LFP that we can use to compare different lottery strategies. It incorporates both approaches mentioned above. Here’s the formula.

LFP = tickets purchased /# of possible wagers in Millions

Since we would like to control our budget, we will try to keep the numerator small. So, we’ll concentrate on reducing the size of the denominator; the number of possible wagers. In this article we’ll use the Massachusetts Cash WinFall, 6/46 lottery.

Everybody playing the MA646 lottery starts out with 9,366,819 possible wagers from which to choose. For the purposes of using the LFP, we will use 9.366819 in the formula. If the player buys 1 wager:

LFP = 1/9.366819 = 0.107

The easy way to improve our coverage of the MA646 lottery, increase our LFP, would be buy more wagers. For example, buying 25 wagers results in an LFP of 2.67; indicating that our coverage has improved.

But, how does the serious lottery player reduce the number of possible wagers? Simple. It’s called a reduced Play List. Unlike everyone else in Massachusetts who is playing a 6 out of 46 game, our guy is playing a different game. Lets’ suppose that by using his lottery software program to analyze the lottery, he is convinced that the number 38 will not hit in the next drawing. He will not play any wager that has the number 38.

I know, you’re thinking, ‘No big deal.’ and are about to stop reading. BUT, WAIT! It is a big deal. This simple act of removing 1 number from play has removed 1,221,759 wagers from play! That’s over a MILLION wagers. You see, while everyone else in Massachusetts is playing a 6/46 lottery, our guy is playing a 6/45 game. His odds of winning the lottery jackpot are now 1:8,145,060. This is reflected in a 15% improvement in the LFP.

LFP = 25/8.14506 = 3.07

But, why stop there. Serious lottery players, that follow my lottery strategies, will apply what I call the 80% rule. They will create a Play List that has 36 numbers (80% of 46). The odds of winning a 6/36 lottery are 1:1,947,792 and out LFP is 12.84. That’s a phenomenal 380% improvement in LFP.

LFP = 25/1.947792 = 12.84

Now, the more numbers we remove, the greater are the chance of removing one of the winning numbers. But, we counter this with lottery trend analysis techniques. In other words, we do a good job of selecting the numbers to include in our list. I’ll freely admit that it doesn’t work every time, but over the long haul, an experienced player will do much better.

Just one more point, before I send you off to buy a good lottery software program. I wonder how much money the average Massachusetts player would have to spend to achieve the same LFP that our Serious Lottery Player did? Well, we just use the LFP formula in reverse.

$ spent = 12.84 x 9.366819 = $120

There are many more things that a Serious Lottery Player can do to increase his LFP even further, but I’ll save those for the next thousand articles.

Good luck and I hope You Win the Big One.


Psychology and Philosophy – Uneasy Siblings

Most of us who work in some aspect of philosophy have had the experience of trying to explain to someone that philosophy is not psychology. To those members of the philosophical set, the distinction may seem obvious, but any attempt to spell it out requires some careful thought and reflection, which is what I attempt to do in this exercise. Psicóloga Curitiba

Is Psychology a sibling of Philosophy? Surely in the past they were close siblings, members of the same family, philosophy. Today the relationship between the two is more problematic. Does work in philosophy have any relation to the student’s psychological state? The answer also is not a clear-cut one. Philosophy can help a person psychologically, but this is not central to the function of philosophy.

Some History:

Historically in Western Philosophy, Psychology was part of philosophy until the 19th century when it became a separate science. In the 17th and 18th centuries, many Western philosophers did pioneering work in areas that later came to be known as “psychology.” Eventually psychological inquiry and research became separate sciences some of which could be characterized as the study and research into the mind. In short, psychology became identified as the science of mind insofar as its function is to analyze and explain mental processes: our thoughts, experiences, sensations, feelings, perceptions, imaginations, creativity, dreams and so on. It is mostly an empirical and experimental science; although the field of psychology does include the more theoretical Freudian psychology and the more speculative Jungian psychology.

When we study Western Philosophy, we find a concentrated effort to maintain a distinction between philosophical and psychological considerations. But these have not always been kept separate. Even today some areas of philosophy remain intermixed with psychological considerations. It may be that some forms of philosophy can never break away completely from psychological issues.
Traditionally, philosophers in the Western tradition did not always observe a wall of separation between philosophy and psychology. For example, Baruch Spinoza’s great work, Ethics, includes many observations and insights about our reasoning processes and emotions. The early works in Epistemology (theory of knowledge) by such thinkers as Rene Descartes, John Locke, David Hume, and Immanuel Kant include a great deal of observations and statements about mental processes connected with knowing and belief. In other words, these writings tend to mix psychological statements (process of knowing) with conceptual philosophy.

But there are differences between psychology and philosophy which are significant and should be observed in careful writing in either area. In our critiques of these 17th and 18th works in epistemology, we try to separate the philosophical theme (logic, conceptual and propositional evaluation) from the psychological aspect (causes of belief, mental process underlying perception). Scientific work that seeks to understand and explain the workings of the brain and the neurological processes which underlie thought and experience (viz., psychology) is different from philosophical inquiry into mind, consciousness, knowledge and experiences. Edmund Husserl, the founder of phenomenology, takes great pains to keep his philosophy separate from empirical psychology. But it is not clear that his analysis (or other analyses) of the phenomenology of different experiences remains something clearly distinct from psychology.

But in large part the problem remains, especially in such areas of philosophy of mind, of keeping philosophical work free of psychology altogether. Moreover, we should not assume that in all cases these must be kept separate, as some work in philosophy surely requires consideration of the psychological sciences.

Even today the student will likely be surprised by the number of psychological insights that Spinoza offers in this great work, Ethics, back in the 17th century and similar psychological observations by Friedrich Nietzsche in the 19th century. William James, the great American pragmatist, includes much psychology in his philosophy. He has much to say about the stream of consciousness and special experiences, such as religious experiences.

Current Concerns:

Philosophy of mind: There is a sense in which the mind is a psychological construct; there’s another sense in which it is not. “My mind is such and such” can be restated as “my thinking is such and such.” Sometimes it is the psychology behind my thinking that is the issue; but other times we’re interested in what could be called the conceptual-propositional issues; and still other times we might be more interested in the literary-artistic expression of ideas, values, and perspectives. (In this latter connection, see Walter Kaufmann’s book, Discovering The Mind.)

In Epistemology we’re concerned with the concept of knowledge; but our primary interest is not one of describing the psychology of knowing. Our interest is not in the process by which we come to know something, but in the clarification of concepts associated with knowledge and belief; and in the logic of propositions related to knowledge. Included among the philosophers who engage in the philosophy of knowledge are Bertrand Russell, D.W. Hamlyn, and Richard Rorty.

In the area of academic philosophy, besides the large field of epistemology, we have philosophy of mind, theory of consciousness, philosophy of language, Cartesian Idealism, and the free will issue. Ordinarily these are not seen as forms of psychological inquiry. They are more directed to conceptual and propositional issues. Included among the philosophers who engage in work on knowledge, language, and mind in this vein are Ludwig Wittgenstein, Gilbert Ryle, D.W. Hamlyn, John Austin, and Daniel Dennett

But psychology is very much a part of those philosophical studies of special experience, such as the religious experience, the mystical experience, and even moral experience. A good representative of this approach is the great American pragmatist, William James. Much of his work in philosophy does not stray too far from his psychological interests.

Some aspects of philosophy are concerned with the nature of human thought. This interest is distinct from psychological study, description and theory. But to be adequate and credible it needs to take into account the work of psychologists and the cognitive scientists. The subject of human thought is a big topic which can be approached from different directions. One of these is philosophy; another is psychology and the cognitive sciences. Still others are literary art, the fine arts, and history.

Suppose I ask about Spinoza’s thought with regard to moral obligation; how does he defend the thesis that morality and rationality are closely intertwined? As a student of philosophy, my interests could be strictly philosophical interests. I want to know how he develops and defends his philosophical thesis. On the other hand, I could be curious about the causes of Spinoza’s thinking; or maybe interested in possible motives that he might have had for adopting his particular philosophy. What events in his childhood or family life led him to embrace the values of rationality and the ideals of the geometric method? In this latter case, I would be proceeding as an amateur, folk psychologist.

There are different ways of trying to understand the thought of a person, e.g. a writer or a philosopher. We take one way when we ask about the causes and motivations behind the person’s ideas; i.e., we ask about the psychological ‘workings.’ Another way is to do philosophical criticism and evaluation of the person’s ideas. But the two (psychology and philosophy) can be combined in a single study.

Philosophy and the psychological well-being of the individual:

Another way of considering the interaction of psychology and philosophy is at the personal level. Do a person’s meditation on philosophical questions bring about (or bring closer) some degree of psychic harmony? To the extent that philosophical work and thought contribute to a person’s sense of well-being and fulfillment, one could argue that philosophy is a form of therapy. Is there a sense in which philosophy can be therapeutic?

If the unexamined life is not worth living (Socrates), then it may follow that the examined life (the “philosophical life”) is worth living. This could be seen as suggesting that philosophical thought results in a form of personal fulfillment and good psychological health.

Contrary to this we have the view (mostly the prevailing view) that philosophy is an intellectual discipline which has little or nothing to do with anyone’s striving to achieve some form of personal, psychic fulfillment. Add to this the fact that most people who work in philosophy (e.g. academic philosophers or professors of philosophy) are not especially noteworthy for lives of psychic well-being. In this regard, think of people like Blaise Pascal, S. Kierkegaard, F. Nietzsche and Ludwig Wittgenstein. How psychologically healthy and well balanced were they? They were emotionally and mentally tormented, and won’t be mentioned much as models of psychic calm and well-being. Moreover, some philosophers are driven to engage in philosophy, much like artists, poets, and composers are driven to do their creative work. Here we have a form of psychological compulsion that does not seem to be a form of therapy. In fact, some people even refer to philosophy as a type of disease.

Closing Thoughts:

The student of philosophy usually is not a psychologist, but nothing says that the student cannot proceed as a psychologist of sorts. I imagine situations in we attempt to get clear about our thoughts and values; and attempt to be honest about our motivations for all that we do. People used to say back in the 1960s era: I’m just trying to get my “head straight.”

Suppose that a psychologist can tell me about the causes, the mental processes, and hidden motives that underlie my thinking and behavior. He might say that in order to truly understand what I am about I must have some understanding of these “psychological” things; i.e., I must acknowledge and expose them. If I were to accept his advice and try to do those things, would I be acting in accordance with the Socratic maxim to “know thyself”?

The professional is concerned with empirical, descriptive psychology and with research into neurological and psychological processes. But we, the amateurs, are primarily indulging a form of folk psychology: Trying to say what I think about my own thinking. Or trying to deal better with my psychic life. Sometimes I apply this ‘folk psychology’ to myself (I try to figure out what I’m about) or to others (I try to understand their motives for saying such and such or doing so and so.)

On a more practical level, we can imagine someone asking: “What do I really want in life? How do I get there?” Can philosophy help us here? Maybe not, but then again think of two of our great figures in Western Philosophy, Socrates and Spinoza. They are often cited as models of psychological harmony and wisdom. Ultimately, aren’t we all psychologists to some degree, even those of us who flounder about in philosophy? Yes, we are to some degree ‘psychologists’ insofar as we are awake, alert, conscientious, and honestly engage in self-examination. This does not need to be kept separate from our work in philosophy.


Wedding Transport and Hire Cars – Four Stylish Options

Deciding on a wedding car to take the bride to the service and convey the bridal couple away from the ceremony can take a while. Unless you are lucky enough to have a collector of vintage cars in the family or the groom already owns a stylish sports car, hiring your wedding transport is the usual option.

Depending on your budget you can decide on wedding car hire for the whole wedding retinue, or just hiring one vehicle for each stage of the wedding: a car to transport the bride and bridesmaids to the ceremony, one to transport the bride and groom from ceremony to the wedding reception venue and one for the bride and groom to ‘go away’ in after the reception.

wedding cars

So what are the options for modern bridal couples looking for stylish wedding transport?

1. Chauffeur driven limousine
This is a conventional but very practical option. Limousines are spacious with plenty of room for bride and bridesmaids to stretch out without crushing trains and dresses. Wedding car services often offer little extras as part of the package, such as chilled champagne waiting for the bride and groom after the ceremony as they are transported to the reception. To make it more affordable find out the best value deals from your local limousine services. It could be cheapest just to have the limo drop the bride at the ceremony and not wait around, or there could be special wedding packages that make it worthwhile to use the same limo for transport to the reception after the ceremony.

2. Vintage Car
There are specialist hire car services that provide vintage cars especially for weddings and special occasions. Drive up to your wedding in a Rolls Royce or a Bentley for some classic, timeless style. Depending on the car service they can be hired as self-drive or with a chauffeur. If you go the self-drive route, appoint a member of the family as chauffeur for the day and use the car for all the various wedding transports: taking the bride to the ceremony, the bride and groom to the reception and then the groom can carry off his bride in it after the reception, all for the cost of one day’s car hire.

3. Sports Car
The groom might have set his heart on driving away from the wedding in something sexy and speedy, in which case hiring a sports car for the day is the ideal solution. Look for a local specialist hire car service that includes top end models of a range of sports cars. If you plan to use it as wedding transport between the ceremony and the reception, just make sure that there will be room for the wedding dress without it getting uncomfortably crumpled.

4. Horse and carriage
Perhaps you are the romantic old-fashioned types and would like a horse-drawn carriage for your wedding transport. Remember that there is less room in a horse-drawn carriage than in a limo, so if you have several bridesmaids you will have to find separate transport for them to the ceremony. Before hiring, you should also discuss whether the wedding venue is suitable for horses, both with the venue itself and with the carriage hire service.

Combine any of the wedding transport options above: perhaps the bride would like to arrive in a limo with her bridesmaids, the bridal couple could then drive to the reception in style in a Bentley and then whisk away in a smart sports car after the reception. Decide on your budget for wedding transportation, research the best options in your local area and then see which options fit within your budget.


Get Business Cash Advance Loans Immediately

Getting a business cash advance is simple and easy for most small businesses, and even those who have poor credit scores. While this does not apply to bank loans, these are the requirements of private lenders, and private lenders are amongst the leading funders at this time. ZenBusiness

Most business owners who are looking for funding and are unaware of the current requirements and developments of the financial sector, visit their local bank. This is the way people believe a loan is to be obtained, via the bank. However, banks are not very enthusiastic about funding small business, and as a result a whole new industry has cropped up to meet the demand.

Private lenders often fill the gap between businesses and banks. There is the very large segment of small businesses that are stuck in the middle, who don’t qualify for bank loans and yet require financing. Private lenders fill this gap providing many of them with the much required business cash advance in the USA.

The services provided by private lenders

The funding that private lenders provide is typically known as MCA or merchant cash advance loans. These kinds of loans are short term loans that are for a maximum duration of 12 months. The repayment options are easy and flexible, and small business owners can work with the funder to set the method that most suits their requirements.

The application process to apply for a business cash advance is simple and quick, with the private funder generally requiring basic information, and a lot less than those of banks. The basic information required by private lenders to provide an MCA are as mentioned here.

1. How old the business is

2. The gross monthly sale of the business

3. How much they require

4. Purpose of the funds i.e. working capital, business expansion, purchasing inventory, purchasing equipment etc.

5. If the business owner has other loans and if he or she is in bankruptcy.

These are some of the basic types of questions that a small business owner who is applying for an MCA would need to answer. The outstanding difference between an application for an MCA and bank loans is the fact that banks require detailed information related to financial statements. Private lenders basically need a broad picture of the ground realities of the business applying for the loan. Unlike banks all decisions are not based on the statements of the small business.

While banks and private lenders may have a different way of looking at things, private lenders do take care to ensure the ground realities of the small business are as they should be. Banks rely heavily on financial statements when reaching a conclusion related to funding a business.

Features of the MCA loan application process

While it is possible that you will be asked about your credit score even when you are going to apply for private funding. The credit score is not a determining factor for an MCA. These loans are unsecured loans and as a result collateral and security are not required as well.

When credit scores, collateral and securities are not holding back small businesses, the possibility of getting funded is a lot higher. These are the basic weak areas of most small businesses, which hamper their ability to get funded by in large. When these weak areas are removed from between a small business owner and the funding they seek, the process becomes a lot smoother for them.

Collateral is something that most small business owners find difficult to show. Typically, only with a private lender can a small business owner expect to receive a business cash advance with bad credit.

Another great feature is the fact that small business owners can receive the funding they require very quickly as well. The quickest a business owner can receive the money in their business account is 48 to 72 hours, from the time they submit a complete application. At the latest this time frame would be a week or two. Banks on the other hand are in no particular hurry to provide business funding, and a realistic time frame would be a couple of months to receive the money.


What Are My Business Formation Options?

Today there are so many different options when it comes to choosing a business formation. In order to know which best suits your business needs, you need to talk to your lawyer. Here is a general description of some of your options. Reading this before talking to your lawyer will allow to have a mo re informed discussion when the time comes for you to choose the right form for your business entity: Inc File review

Sole Proprietorship

A sole proprietorship is a business owned by one individual who is considered to be self-employed. A sole proprietor may still have employees working for him/her. A sole proprietor reports gains and losses on their own personal income tax form since a sole proprietorship is not legally considered a separate entity. The sole proprietor may be held personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the business.

General Partnership

If more than one person own and carry on a business for profit, state statute declares that business a general partnership. It is the default entity. This means that even though two people own a business together and have not filed anything with the state and do not intend to form a “general partnership,” legally they have. It does not matter that they did not intend to. Like a sole proprietorship, general partners report the gains and losses of the general partnership on their own personal income tax forms. The general partners may be held personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the business.

Limited Partnership

A limited partnership is generally formed when there is one or more owners of the business that simply want to invest in the business and have no other part of it. The investor-owners become the limited partners and the other owners become general partners. The limited partners generally only have liability to the extent they have invested in the business. The general partners may be held personally responsible for the debts and liabilities of the business. Partners report gains and losses of the business on their own personal income tax forms.

Limited Liability Partnership

A limited liability partnership is, generally speaking, a general partnership except that ALL of the partners may enjoy limited liability, meaning that each may only be liable to the extent they have invested in the business. (Note: not all states recognize the LLP form).

Limited Liability Company

A limited liability company allows all members to enjoy limited liability. It also allows members to report gains and losses of the business on their personal income tax forms. One of the benefits also includes the fact that LLCs follow the statutory scheme of a C-corporation. This is beneficial because the statutes and case law of corporations in Minnesota, and other states, is very developed which allows lawyers to more easily predict how certain situations will be handled or viewed by a court of law.


A corporation is state law creation while the C simply signifies how the corporation is taxed for federal income tax purposes. C-corporations are taxed both at the entity level, on profits the business makes, and at the shareholder level, on distributions made to shareholders.


Both the S and C corporations are formed and operate the same in regards to state law purposes. The difference lies in how they are treated for federal income tax purposes. A S-corporation pays no entity level tax allowing it to pass-through any gains and losses directly to its shareholders who report them on their personal income tax forms. In order to qualify for an S-corporation election, certain criteria need to be met. These qualifications limit the number of shareholders as well as who those shareholders may be.

As you can see, there are many different options when choosing a business form. These options need to be taken into consideration in order to make the right choice for you. Talking to your lawyer will ensure that you choose the form that will provide you and your business with the most benefits.


Choice of Business Entity – S Corporation or LLC?

f you are planning to sue a LLC, there are some potential problems to be aware of; that can become even more important when you later attempt to a list of LLC formation services recover your judgment from that LLC.

This article is my opinion, and not legal advice. I am a judgment solutions expert, and am not a lawyer. If you ever need any legal advice or a strategy to use, please contact a lawyer.

Unlike most individuals; LLCs can very quickly decide to “die”, file for bankruptcy protection, transfer or hide their assets, sell themselves, hide, or change names.

Some LLC companies play the “hide the pea” game with related LLC “empty shell” companies; used as smokescreens to thwart judgment creditors. Some judgment debtors put their assets into several different LLCs, making it very hard to reach those assets. Some LLCs are formed for the purpose of financing assets, making sure that no creditors can reach those assets.

LLCs and other corporate entities operate, and are protected, by a complex set of laws that generally shield the owners from any personal liability. In California, a charging order is the exclusive method of reaching a judgment debtor’s interest in a LLC.

Some relevant California laws are Corporation Code sections 1502(b), 1505, 1701, 17057(b), 17061(b), and 15901.14. In most States, corporations and LLCs must name a natural person, or a company having a natural person available; as their agent for process of service, within the state they do business.

When researching a LLC or any entities related to them, your State’s Secretary Of State (SOS)’s website is usually the best place to start. LLCs and other entities, can name a service company to act as their agent for process of service. However, that service company must comply with the Corporations Codes and the Secretary Of State’s requirements.

You can put the name of the LLC, or their (e.g.) service company, and the SOS will show you their corporate number. If a LLC names a service company as its agent, only the name of that service company will appear on the SOS website.

At your State’s SOS website, you can also find out if your debtor is actually a corporation, limited liability company, a limited partnership, etc. If your debtor or their service company is not listed at the SOS site, perhaps they are probably operating as a DBA/fictitious name; and maybe the business owner is the person you should be suing.

The four most important things to check, before you sue a LLC, include:

1) Is the LLC making money? Are they still in business? Do they have any assets? If the answer for all three is no; then there may not be any reason to sue them; unless you can prove in court that the people behind them are alter egos of that LLC, and also those people have some assets.

2) What is the LLC’s reputation on the web, and at the courthouse? If there are many judgments against them, or they have many people suing them, and/or if there are many complaints from several sources on the web; they may be having trouble, and collecting a judgment from them will be difficult, so perhaps attempt to settle with them instead?
