Fuel Saving Tips

ECo tyre pressures

Check your manufacturers hand book for eco tyre pressure settings. The higher the tyre pressure the less rolling resistance the better fuel consumption. My Vauxhall Vectra (UK) shows 38psi for each tyre which is about 5 psi over standard. Since following this I have also noticed tyre wear has decreased I assume due to less scrubbing of the rubber double win! There has been no noticeable loss of handling/grip either.
