I’m interested in simple solutions, and tire inflation seems like that sort of solution.For more on tire inflation, here’s the original discussion.
The best tire loses 2-5% of its pressure per month.
Four tires low averages 10% off gas mileage.
Average gas prices 3.50 to 4 a gallon. Which is between 12.24 cents and 14 cents a mile. Call it 13 cents a mile.
At 13 cents a mile, the average person is spending over $1300 a year on gas. And wasting $130 a year by underinflating his or her tires.
So should you inflate your tires properly? Yes.
