SOME HELPFUL TIPS ON GETTING BETTER GAS MILEAGE
Did you know that your tire pressure has a lot to do with your Miles per gallon. The lower your tire pressure is, the more miles and has you will be putting on your car. Why? Your car needs to compensate for the lack of pressure coming from your tires. This, in turn, will ruin your tires in the long run. This means you have to put out extra money for tires even before they are needed.
There are ways to become better with knowing how your tire pressure affects your miles per gallon.
TIRE PRESSURE MPG: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
1) Try buying a more fuel-efficient car. Take the compact turbo-diesel. This car gets 40 miles to the gallon. Also look into buying more fuel-efficient tires. This will help to drastically improve your tire pressure MPG. The type of tires you buy has a great deal to say about your mileage. If you buy into cheap tires, the miles that are being put on the car will be more brutal.
Research the cars and tires in your area. Take not of how many miles per gallon the car and car tires can put on them. You never want to buy a car that get 40 miles per gallon and the tires only use half.
2) Making sure your tires are properly inflated, this can be very helpful too. A standard passenger tire should be about 5 to 15 p.S.i. below the normal 30-35 p.s.i. Which means, your passenger tire should be no more than 25 to 30 p.s.i.
If your tires are below the normal inflation, this will make everything work double. Thin of it as like running in wet shoes. Don’t you find you have to work harder for the same results? Same thing goes for the car.
3) When filing the tank, how ever often you do so, please check the tire air pressure. Some people wait to do this after a long drive, particularly in colder weather. This is not good. Always check the pressure. If the air is low, even just by a bit, add some.
4)The last tip is to fill your tires with nitrogen, Most people use oxygen. Oxygen seeps out of the tires faster. Nitrogen will last longer, much longer. It will also go along way to improving your pressure and miles per gallon.
SOME FINAL THOUGHTS
Go slower on the road. The faster you burn rubber, the more pressure and miles you will use up. If you are going to be sitting in your car for a long period, let the car idle. Turning your car off and on will only be burning off more pressure.
