Save money at the pumps, inflate your tyres

In the current economic climate saving money and reducing unnecessary costs is on everyone’s mind.
However, the cost of filling your car up has continued to increase. Motorists now face petrol prices well over a £1 per litre.

Ring Automotive is advising drivers to inflate their tyres correctly to make significant savings on their fuel bills.

Under-inflated tyres have more contact with the road surface, which increases the drag of the vehicle. Combined with an increase in rolling resistance the engine has to use more fuel to create more energy to maintain the same performance as a correctly inflated tyre.

Correct tyre pressures help to maintain optimum fuel efficiency. This can equate to lower Co2 emissions which is good for the environment and good for your wallet.

As well as increasing the consumption of fuel, under inflated tyres wear out quicker than normal. This increased wear and reduction in the life of the tyre results in costly new tyres.

To help motorists maintain optimum tyre pressure, Ring Automotive has launched a new range of compressors. Prices start from £12.99.
