Fuel Saving Tips

Run slightly higher tire pressure...

I have a 2001 Honda Accord. The recommended TP is 30 PSI (cold = car not driven, and no sun on tires). My tires are rated at 44 PSI. I find that I get up to 1 MPG better FE at 35-38 PSI cold. Currently I'm testing out ~40 PSI cold. I have no irregular tire wear, but **slightly** more road noise, vibration and poorer ride quality, and such. Traction seems to be the same or better. Over all, it seems to be a good compromise...
