TYRES & FUEL CONSUMPTION
On average, 20% of a car’s fuel consumption (or one tank in five) is consumed by ‘rolling resistance’. That’s right, tyres are responsible for 20% of a car’s fuel consumption.
You only need to feel how hot tyres get on a fast trip to prove this. Low rolling resistance tyres can mitigate much of this loss especially when an economical style of driving is practised:
Drive at a constant speed, avoiding rapid stops and starts. Anticipate events and other road users actions to maintain a constant speed as much as possible
Change gears between 2,000 to 2,500 RPM in order to keep optimal engine speeds
Check your tyre pressures regularly as under-inflated tyres increase fuel consumption. Don’t over inflate tyres to lower resistance as they will wear unevenly and skid easily in poor conditions
