It is not a surprise these days that Fairfax Station VA and Northern Virginians look for every possible option to save money, including looking for gas savings tips. Properly inflated tires are one way Fairfax Station VA drivers can save money while also helping to reduce their impact on the environment.

New model cars often come equipped with tire pressure monitoring systems which are very helpful in determining when additional air must be added to the tires, but manually checking your tires is recommended as well for optimal performance.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, more than 3.5 million gallons of gas are wasted every day as a result of incorrectly inflated tires. While that is not good news, the good news is that you can reduce that number to keeping your tires inflated to the proper pressure. Studies have shown that when tires are properly inflated, when gas prices are at approximately $3 per gallon, the average motorist will save nearly $450 each year simply from tire inflation.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released finding that the typical car in the U.S. releases more than five tons of carbon dioxide into the air each year. This is a near direct result from tires that have leaks that are too slight to notice and the tire does not appear to be losing air pressure. The escaped air damages the environment as it is released.
