As the UK struggles to get to grips with the recession, here’s a quick and easy step to follow to help cut your motoring costs.
Make sure your tyres are properly inflated!
There are three main reasons why maintaining the right tyres pressure is important. The first is reason is economy. Over or under inflated tyres suffer more damage than those with the correct pressure and need to be replaced more regularly. Vehicles with under-inflated tyres have increased rolling resistance that require more fuel to maintain the same speed.
The second reason is safety. Tyres that are under inflated can overheat, while over inflated tyres can lead to poor vehicle handling on the road.
The third reason for maintaining the correct tyre pressure is the environment. Correct tyre pressures help to maintain optimum fuel efficiency. This can equate to lower Co2 emissions coming from your vehicle than those with incorrect tyre pressures and that has to be good for the environment.
