Minimize Monday Tip: Inflate Your Tires. You increase your fuel consumption by as much as 6% by driving with underinflated tires. Why? Tires lose about 1 PSI per month on average and 1 PSI for every 10 degree drop in temperature. Once a month, check that your tires are inflated to the manufacturer’s recommended level, which is printed on the inside of your doorjamb or in the owner’s manual. For safety? Check the pressure when the tires are cold, especially given the recent fluctuations in temperature. And don’t forget about the tire pressure in your bicycles, too!
