The Ecopia tire is not only for the hybrid drivers but can increase fuel mileage on any vehicle
Pacifica, CA (PRWEB) March 01, 2012
With fuel prices climbing again, Daly City’s auto repair shop, Sanford Firestone, offers tips on a couple ways the average driver can get the most out of their fuel tank:
1) Consider fuel-saving tires. Bridgestone has announced the expansion of their fuel-saving Ecopia EP422 tire line. These tires are engineered for the environment-conscious and cost-conscious driver.
“The Ecopia tire is not only for the hybrid drivers but can increase fuel mileage on any vehicle,” John Sanford of Sanford Firestone said. “This unique low rolling resistance tire is priced like any other 65k tire but has more cost-saving benefits than an ordinary tire. The Ecopia EP422 comes in both passenger and truck sizes and is a must for those trying to get the most out of their fuel tank.”
2) Use nitrogen instead of compressed air in tires. When nitrogen is used to replace compressed air in tire inflation, it enhances handling, improves fuel efficiency, extends tire life, protects the earth and most importantly, keeps the driver and passenger safer while on the road. With nitrogen, the tires will not loose 2 to 3 pounds of air every month, as with compressed air. Nitrogen does not dissipate through the rubber tire walls, so car owners won't have to deal with that TPMS light coming on every month. Also, it has no moisture, so it will extend the life of the tire pressure monitor sensors, which are inside the tires.
“The combination of the fuel-saving Ecopia EP422 tires and replacing compressed air with nitrogen in your tires should offset the extra dollars you’re spending at the pump,” Sanford said. “Remember driving the speed limit also helps!”
