You don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out properly-inflated tires will improve your gas mileage.
According to the Department of Energy, under-inflated tires can waste up to 3.3% of your fuel costs.
You already spend enough money at the gas station. Why let them literally nickel and dime you for air?
The right compressor will not only make filling up your tires quick and easy, but will also reduce your dependence on $4.00 per gallon gas.
The key to maintaining optimal tire pressure is consistency. You should check your tire pressure at least once a month or every 1,000 miles.
Sure, it sounds easy enough. But, do you do it?
A regular tire gauge and an inflator can actually save you gas money, reduce roadside emergencies, and extend your tire's life.
Instead of letting your tire gauge sit around in your glove box, put it to use. It takes just seconds to measure the air pressure of your tires with this handy tool.
Portable air compressors are more versatile and easier to use than ever before. They are precise, simple and will inflate your tires in mere minutes. They are also great for filling up balls, rafts and pool toys.
Don't Forget Your Spare
Be sure to check your spare tire's pressure in the spring and fall. It's very important you do so as outdoor temperature changes can cause dramatic swings in pressure.
