Tire Pressure and Fuel Economy

Keeping your tires inflated is an important part of vehicle maintenance. Did you know that your tires can also affect fuel economy? We here at Pines Lincoln want you to be an informed vehicle owner, so here are some easy ways to ensure that you're getting the best fuel economy possible.

Every manufacturer has a recommended tire pressure rating. This information is usually found in the owner's manual or on a sticker in the driver's door jamb. You should check the tire pressure regularly to ensure that it's not too high or too low. You may experience a gas mileage drop of about 0.2% if your tires are just a single PSI lower than the recommended rating. While this may not seem like much, it can add up quickly.
