Fuel Saving Tips
You can get a can of fix-A-Flat sealant and inflation propellant in a can for less than $5.00 (I've even found it at the $0.99 store sometimes for less than $1.00.) at many auto parts stores. A can of that can often allow you to get to the tire shop without having to change the tire. I keep a can in all of my cars, 2 cans for trucks with big tires. But beware, the sealant can make a goey mess that gets on the wheels as well as the inside of the tires. This mess isn't looked upon fondly by most tire shop repair persons. If you're in a pinch it may get you home but it isn't intended as a permenant repair.
