Under Inflation of Tires is Costing U.S. Drivers Money

In tough economic times who can afford to waste money on excess fuel usage? TravelSafer highlights the large fuel spend caused by under inflated tires.

USA, 29 March 2016 -- Under inflated tires cause U.S. drivers to waste 1.2 billion gallons of fuel annually and according to the U.S. Department of Energy, properly inflated tires can improve fuel efficiency by 3.3 percent and save up to 11 cents per gallon at the pump. Could you do with a few extra dollars in your pocket each week?

And besides that, properly inflated tires are safer, last longer and minimize risk of tire failure by reducing tread movement and rolling resistance, and increasing water dispersion.

According to a 2010 Rubber Manufacturers Association study, only 17 percent of vehicles had four properly inflated tires and 55 percent of vehicles had at least one under inflated tire.

A spokesperson from the company TravelSafer, manufacturer of a portable easy to use digital tire pressure gauge, says checking tire pressure regularly, only once per month and before every long trip can save lives and improve fuel economy. He gave a few tips for tire safety:

“Tire pressures should be checked when tires are cold (preferably after 3 hours not driven or perhaps first thing in the morning). The correct tire pressure can be found in the car owner manual, on the gas tank lid, the driver’s side door edge, or on the door post. And don’t forget to check the spare.”

“It’s important to know that tire pressure must be the same on the tires of each axle, but may be different from front to back. And remember to tightly close the valve caps to protect from dust and dirt and to prevent leaking. Replace missing valve caps without delay.”

“Don’t rely on tire pressure monitoring systems either,” he continues, “They only issue a low pressure warning after tire pressure drops 25 percent below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended pressure. A small drop in air pressure may not trigger a warning light but would cause a loss of fuel economy and impair road handling.”


Unfortunately, most people have a hard time telling the difference between a full tire and one that is low, and struggling with awkward gas station tire gauges can be a hassle. In order to help drivers monitor their tire pressure, the company TravelSafer has developed their digital tire pressure gauge to be used on cars, trucks, motorcycles and bicycles. Its illuminated nozzle and LCD screen allows the tire pressure gauge to provide accurate readings day or night and in poor light conditions.
