Fuel Saving Tips

Ensure your tyres are at the correct pressure

A tyre should wear evenly across the entire tread from shoulder to shoulder. Over pressure is indicated by the centre of the tyre wearing faster than the shoulders & under pressure is indicated by the reverse. Over-pressure reduces your cornering grip, increases stopping distances and makes the car more susceptible to sliding on surface contaminates (gravel, oil, etc). Under pressure will cause the tyre overheat, aquaplane more readily & tramline more readily. Either state will cause your tyres to wear out more quickly.
