Tire Pressure

We arrived home from North Carolina this evening and I'm glad to be back. Dorothy was right; there's no place like home.

Wednesday, I didn't have time to adjust the air in my tires before we left home, so on the way down to my in-laws, we averaged 34 mpg. This morning, before we got on the road, I checked the tire pressure and inflated where necessary. It cost me $0.75 for compressed air at the gas station. On the way home, we got 39 mpg even though we were in stop-and-go traffic for most of the way which reduces fuel efficiency.

Check your tire pressure! It makes a huge difference.

I know word verification is a pain, but I'm getting a lot of spam comments, more than I can keep up with. I hope you'll leave a comment anyway. I really appreciate you reading and love hearing back from you.
