After all this gorgeous weather everyone is looking ahead with eager anticipation to the Bank Holiday weekend.
Well, we can’t control the weather, but we can help you make sure your tyres are safely inflated if you are planning on jumping into your car and heading for a mini-break or an exciting day trip.
To start with, making sure your tyres are properly inflated can give you a safer, cheaper and greener journey.
It only takes a few minutes and yet it could reduce the chances of a blow-out or puncture, cut the cost of filling up at the pumps and reduce your carbon emissions.
So, here’s our simple guide to checking your tyres pressure.
1. First check your vehicle handbook to find out what the recommended pressure is for your vehicle.
2. Unscrew the tyre valve cap – these are usually place and twist off by hand.
3. Insert the gauge into the valve and check the pressure on the gauge display. If it’s above or below the recommended pressure, it needs adjusting.
4. Use an electric tyre pump to fill to the correct level. These can be found at most petrol stations.
