Tyresure, the UK’s market leading Tyre Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) manufacturer is urging motorists to check their tyre pressures this holiday season.
With schools now closed, many families are looking to embark on long road trips to their UK or European holiday destinations. In many cases they could be wasting fuel, or worse still, tempting fate due to incorrectly inflated tyres. The single most common cause of all tyre-related accidents.
Tyresure’s neat TPMS utilises military-spec technology on each road wheel to display an accurate tyre pressure and temperature reading for each tyre, direct to the driver in real time. This can be accessed permanently, or set as a ‘pre-flight check’ which then updates the driver if preset safety parameters are breached. This is displayed through a compact display screen that shows safe pressures in green, changing to red if the pressure or temperature moves to a dangerous level. The system works on any type of vehicle from a family saloon to the biggest SUV and once the sensors have been fitted to the wheels, it’s a true ‘Plug & Play’ fitment.
Research undertaken by a leading tyre company reveals that just a 6 psi drop in tyre pressure leads to an approximate 10% increase in fuel consumption, whilst rapidly accelerating tyre wear by up to 30%! With the complete system costing just £179.00 including VAT, most drivers will see a financial return in the first year of average driving – especially with motorway fuel priced at over £1.30 a litre!
Of course, the big benefits aren’t just financial. Optimum tyre pressures, mean increased safety and more predictable handling. Reduced consumption also brings reduced emissions. So, it’s something we can all realistically do to reduce our carbon footprint.
