Have you let yourself down?

When did you last check the tyre pressures on your car? Maybe you never do and it’s only looked at when the garage does your servicing.

Tyres can loose 1 or 2 PSI per week. If your tyres are meant to be 30 PSI then they could be down to 27 in a month. That’s a 10% loss which could increase fuel consumption by a whopping four per cent.

Work out the effect on your pocket as well as your carbon footprint.
