Are your automobile tires properly inflated?

Natural Resources Canada says that just one under inflated tire can reduce your mileage by as much as FOUR PERCENT!!!

Keeping your tires properly inflated (following the automobile manufacturers guidelines located on the side of the driver's door and also in the automotive handbook) will help save our planet by wasting less of our precious resources, causing less pollution, help your car handle better while driving and braking, and will help save you some money!

Check your tire pressure regularly, before you drive (when the tires are cold). 

 

Here is a link to a video I saw featuring an 8 in 1 digital pressure tool on CTC House of Innovation site:  Multi-purpose automotive tool


If you spend just $25 dollars a week, just one under inflated tire could cost you almost $50/yr in extra fuel and premature wear of your tires.

Here is a link to a post on Reducing your Fuel consumption.
