You really can save gas by properly inflating your tires! Dave the (Green) Swede checked the tire pressure on his hybrid Prius the other day, and found that each tire was about 25 percent underinflated. After properly inflating the tires, his green machine gets about 3.5 miles per gallon more than before.
That’s 35 miles more per tank for ol’ DtS.
Oh, and for Stephen Reed (who always insists that I make a Christian worldview point, and who was really put off by my post about Swedish pools) . . . It’s not good stewardship to waste money and resources. So, people, inflate those tires properly!
BTW . . . I know, I know . . . then-candidate Obama said that inflating tires properly would save as much oil as we could drill for offshore. Don’t want to go there.
