Maintaining proper tire pressure presents ‘huge opportunity in today’s volatile fuel market

July 2, 2022

Though fuel prices have reached historic levels, are some fleets still missing the mark on tire pressure management and thus paying even more at the pump?

“Yes,” said Michelin North America Product Manager Jim Garrett. “Especially with today’s high fuel prices, they are losing more cash out of their pocket. Various studies have found that around 10% of fleets are running underinflated with about 5% of tires more than 20 psi under. This is similar to what we see when we monitor fleets.”
