Reducing fuel consumption

The Rubber Association of Canada (RAC) has good advice on saving fuel that applies to all vehicles. “If tires were properly maintained, over the typical seven-year life of a vehicle, Canadians could save approximately $850-$1000 in reduced fuel consumption and tire replacement costs,” says Glenn Maidment, President of the association. “You simply cannot tell a tire is under-inflated, just by looking at it – you must check it with a good quality tire gauge.” The RAC offers a comprehensive Leadership Kit for tire retailers, automobile dealers, after market automotive stores, ecology action and environmental groups. The elements of the Leadership Kit are available at www.betiresmart.ca.
