2: Maintaining the right amount of pressure in your tyres will improve your fuel economy
According to surveys, 60% of vehicles have at least 30 % underinflated tyres. The pressure is at least 9 psi below the manufacturer’s recommendation. You’ll waste almost 7 per cent of your fuel. In addition, low air pressure causes premature tyre wear, which can cost almost $300. To ensure best results, check the air pressure on your tyre with a digital pressure gauge (available at any auto parts store) and fill your tyre to the recommended pressure shown on the decal inside the driver’s door or on the pillar in front of the driver’s door.
