Keep ‘Em Aired Up

Received a note from AAA today. According to their research, vehicles with under-inflated tires consume an extra 2.8 billion gallons of gasoline in this country each year. That’s billion with a ‘B’ (which, says AAA, is more gasoline than 25 ocean-going super tankers could carry). And that’s over and above the gasoline those vehicles would consume anyway. The cost of all that driving with under-inflated tires? $9.6 billion, according to AAA.

Once again, the fast lube industry proves its environmental friendliness. According to NOLN surveys, almost all fast lube facilities check tire pressure as part of a full-service oil change. That’s millions of vehicles each year operating (at least for a time) on properly aired-up tires. And that adds up to a lot of fuel savings and decreased emissions.
