Fuel Saving Tips

Tyre pressure

Some tips have suggested inflating tyres to the maximum pressure indicated on the side of the tyre. This is not a good idea for the following reasons: - A very uncomfortable ride on rough roads. - Cornering and braking grip is reduced - Wear is concentrated on the centre of the tyre tread and tyres will need to be replaced early negating any fuel savings. Use the manufacturers weight/pressure placard as a guide and add a few psi (say 4 psi) to the recommendation and you should achieve a good balance between economy and safety.
