Fight high gas prices with our fuel saving tips!
1)A car's tires loose about one PSI of air per month under normal conditions, and a car with under-inflated tires can use up to 15% more fuel. That said, over 75% of cars on the road don't have proper tire pressure, because less than 25% of drivers check their tire pressures regularly. That's a lot of wasted fuel- not to mention a dangerous safety issue as well. Save fuel and be safe- it takes just a moment to check your tire pressure. Even if your car has a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS), you should check by hand once a month too- as they aren't always accurate. 2)Nobody wants to get into a cold car for the early drive to work on cooler mornings. But remember that idling your engine excessively gets you no miles per gallon and puts hard-earned money up into the atmosphere wastefully. Bundle up, let the car idle only a few seconds and take off.
