Air pressure

Making sure that you use the proper air pressure is extremely important as it has an important impact on the tyres' durability and on driving safety. If the air pressure is too low, the rolling resistance is increased and this can lead to a higher fuel consumption. Official reports show that only one in four cars are using the correct air pressure. The tyre pressure recommended by the car manufacturer can be found in the handbook of that vehicle, on the fuel filler flap or on one of the door posts, usually the driver's. The air pressure should be checked at least every four weeks. The air pressure test should be performed on "cold" tyres (before the vehicle is driven and heat is generated).
