Daniel needed a new carburetor for his car. Well, not a new one. A new one would cost at least $250. Even a rebuilt one would cost about $110. The cheapest thing to do was to go to a salvage yard.

California has about 50 salvage yards. Most of them are in southern California. The yards range in size from 10 acres to 70 acres, holding anywhere from 300 to 3,000 abandoned, wrecked, or cheaply sold cars. The yards are usually located outside of downtown but near a freeway ramp.

A salvage yard might pay you up to $200 to take your rundown car off your hands. Before they place it in the yard, however, they will remove all its liquids—oil, gas, coolant, brake fluid, transmission fluid, power steering fluid, and windshield washer solvent. Vehicles usually sit in the yard for only a month before they are crushed, stacked, and then transported to a recycler.

Vehicle parts are inexpensive, but you have to remove them yourself. The carburetor that Daniel needed was only $20. Nothing in the yard, however, comes with a guarantee. If it doesn't work or fit, you can replace it with a similar item, but you won't get your money back.

Daniel borrowed his brother's car. After paying the $3 entry fee to the man in the little wooden shack, Daniel walked into the yard. He walked about five minutes before he found the foreign car section. It looked like there were at least 200 cars. It was sunny and hot. There was no shade anywhere in the yard. Carrying his toolbox, Daniel went searching for a matching carburetor.

Almost three hours later, Daniel was back at the shack. He bought himself a cold soda from a machine. A few minutes later, he paid the $20 plus tax and walked out of the yard. Driving home, he wondered if all the work was worth the savings. If the carburetor didn't work, he'd have to do this all over again.

When he got home, his brother Monty was standing next to Daniel's car. Monty had a big smile on his face. "Hey, guess what? It wasn't your carburetor. It was the fuel filter. I changed it, and your car runs great now."

Này em trai, em có thể tiết kiệm một cái bộ chế hoà khí được không?

Daniel cần một cái bộ chế hoà khí cho chiếc xe của anh ấy. À, không phải cái mới. Cái mới có thể tốn ít nhất $250. Ngay cả cái tái chế cũng tốn cỡ $110. Rẻ nhất là đến bãi xe phế thải.

California có khoảng 50 bãi xe phế thải. Hầu hết chúng ở nam California. Bãi xe rộng từ 10 đến 70 mẫu, chứa khắp nơi từ 300 đến 3,000 chiếc xe bỏ, xe trục vớt được hay là xe bán rẻ. Bãi xe thường nằm ngoài thành phố nhưng gần đường nối với cao tốc.

Bãi xe phế thải có thể trả cho bạn đến $200 để lấy xe không dùng của bạn. Trước khi cho vào bãi, dù sao họ sẽ lấy hết các chất lỏng trong xe-dầu, xăng, nước làm mát, dầu thắng, dầu bôi trơn, dầu sang số, và dung dịch rửa kính chắn gió. Xe thường nằm tại bãi xe cả tháng trước khi chúng bị nghiền nát, nén lại, và vận chuyển đi tái chế.

Các bộ phận trong xe không mắc, nhưng bạn phải tự gỡ ra. Bô chế hoà khí mà Daniel cần chỉ giá $20. Không có gì từ bãi xe, dù sao, có bảo hành. Nếu không chạy được hoặc không vừa, bạn có thể đổi cái tương tự, nhưng không lấy lại tiền.

Daniel mượn xe của anh mình. Sau khi trả $3 phí vào cửa cho người đàn ông trong cái lều gỗ nhỏ, Daniel đi vào bãi xe. Anh đi khoảng năm phút trước khi tìm thấy xe nước ngoài. Ở đó dường như có ít nhất 200 chiếc. Hôm đó trời nắng nóng. Không có bóng mát nào trong bãi. Cầm hộp đồ nghề, Daniel đi kiếm bộ chế hoà khí thích hợp.

Gần ba tiếng sau, Daniel trở lại lều. Anh mua một lon soda lạnh ở máy. Vài phút sau, anh trả $20 cộng tiền thuế và đi ra khỏi bãi. Lái về nhà, anh tự hỏi tất cả công việc này có đáng giá cho việc tiết kiệm không. Nếu bộ chế hoà khí không hoạt động, anh sẽ phải làm mọi thứ lần nữa.

Khi về tới nhà, anh trai Monty đang dứng gần chiếc xe Daniel. Monty cười rạng rỡ. "Này, đoán xem? Không phải bộ chế hoà khí. Đó là cái lọc dầu. Anh đã thay nó, và xe em chạy tốt rồi."

Daniel cần một bộ chế hoà khí mới cho chiếc xe của mình. À, không phải một cái mới. Một cái mới sẽ có giá ít nhất là 250 đô-la. Thậm chí một cái được sửa chữa lại sẽ có giá 110 đô-la. Việc ít tốn tiền nhất để làm là đi đến bãi xe hơi phế liệu.

California có khoảng 50 bãi xe phế liệu. Hầu hết các bãi xe phế liệu ở phía Nam California. Phạm vi bãi có kích thước từ 10 mẫu Anh đến 70 mẫu Anh, chứa khoảng từ 300 đến 3.000 chiếc xe phế thải, xe hư hỏng, hoặc xe bán rẻ. Bãi xe thường được đặt phía ngoài khu phố thương mại nhưng gần đường nối vào đường cao tốc.

Bãi xe phế liệu có thể trả cho bạn tới 200 đô-la để lấy chiếc xe ọp ẹp khỏi tay bạn. Trước khi để xe vào bãi, người ta sẽ bỏ hết các chất lỏng trong xe-dầu nhớt, xăng, chất lỏng làm nguội, dầu thắng, dầu hộp số, dầu trợ lực tay lái, và nước rửa kính chắn gió. Các loại xe cộ thường để ở bãi xe chỉ trong một tháng trước khi chúng bị nghiền nát, xếp thành từng đống, và sau đó chuyển đến nơi tái chế.

Các bộ phận xe không mắc lắm, nhưng bạn phải tự mình tháo nó. Bộ chế hoà khí mà Daniel cần chỉ có 20 đô-la. Tuy nhiên, không có thứ gì trong bãi xe, đi kèm với việc bảo đảm chất lượng. Nếu nó không hoạt động hoặc không phù hợp, bạn có thể đổi nó với một cái tương tự, nhưng bạn sẽ không được lấy lại tiền.

Daniel mượn anh mình chiếc xe. Sau khi trả 3 đô-la tiền vào cửa cho người đàn ông ngồi trong lán gỗ nhỏ, Daniel đi vào bãi xe. Anh đi khoảng năm phút trước khi tìm thấy một dãy xe hơi ngoại nhập. Trông có vẻ ít nhất là 200 chiếc xe hơi. Trời nắng và nóng bức. Không có bóng mát ở bất cứ chỗ nào trong bãi xe. Mang theo thùng đồ nghề, Daniel đi tìm bộ chế hoà khí phù hợp.

Gần ba tiếng đồng hồ sau, Daniel trở lại lán. Anh mua cho mình một lon xô-đa lạnh từ máy bán hàng. Một vài phút sau đó, anh trả 20 đô-la kể cả thuế và đi ra khỏi bãi xe. Lúc lái xe về nhà, anh tự hỏi tất cả các công việc có đáng giá cho việc tiết kiệm hay không. Nếu bộ chế hoà khí không hoạt động, anh phải làm tất cả các chuyện đó một lần nữa.

Khi anh về nhà , ông anh Monty đang đứng cạnh chiếc xe của Daniel. Monty mĩm cười rạng rỡ. "Này, thử đoán xem? Không phải tại bộ chế hoà khí đâu. Tại bộ lọc xăng. Anh đã thay nó, và bây giờ chiếc xe của em chạy ngon lắm."
