Fuel Saving Tips

Tyre pressure - handbook or sidewall?

Often the maximum inflation pressure written on your tyre's sidewall will be considerably higher than the pressures recommended in your vehicle's handbook. Inflating to the sidewall rating may well give slightly better fuel economy, but the extra air pressure will usually cause the tyres to bulge in the middle of the tread and wear unevenly, meaning you'll need to buy new rubber much sooner. Instead, always inflate to the recommended tyre pressures in your vehicle's handbook.
