Why You Need To Always Have A Tire Pressure Gauge In Your Vehicle

Apr 5, 2008
If you want to get the most life out of your tires it is crucial that you keep a tire pressure gauge in your vehicle to be sure that your tires are inflated to the optimum levels. It is not only important for making sure that the tires last as long as possible but also for the best performance as well as safety. A large percentage of drivers neglect this and they pay for it dearly. The relatively few people who do have the gauges don't use them as regularly as they should.

A pressure gauge is an easy tool to use and it only takes a couple of minutes to check all of your tires. As mentioned above if the tool is used properly it can save you tons of money over the life of your vehicle. One does not have to possess any special skills or training to be able to use this tool and complete the process in a matter of minutes. This simple maintenance routine takes very little time to employ and requires very little effort.

Most people just don't realize how proper tire pressure affects everything from tire wear to gas mileage. I found out just how big a difference it made when I was in some financial difficulties and was having a hard time coming up with the money to fill my gas tank. Not only was it costing me a fortune in gas but it was being used very quickly as well.

One day while I was complaining about how much gas I was burning through in a car that was supposed to be highly fuel efficient a buddy of mine told me that the problem may be my tire pressure and he suggested that I get a pressure gauge and start using it on a regular basis. I was a little hard headed about it at first until he told me how improper tire inflation could hurt fuel economy. I thought I knew a lot about cars and didn't really even consider how much the tire pressure affected my gas mileage.

Due to the fact that I knew and trusted my friend I didn't hesitate going out and buying a pressure gauge but I was a little concerned at first about how easy it would be to use. I figured that like any other tool, if I didn't know how to use it then it wouldn't really do me a lot of good. The idea of learning to use a new device wasn't really at the top of my list of fun things to do but I did it anyway and I found that the tool was super easy to use and took very little time or effort. Now that I know how much money it saves me I always make sure that I have one in my vehicle.
