Accutire MS-4350B Programmable Digital Tire Gauge $10.00 Amazon
You probably heard all about Obama’s recent comment on how if everyone properly inflated their tires it could save as much oil as would be gotten from off-shore drilling. A good article about the politics of the Obama’s latest statement and the conservatives reaction can be found here at Huffington Post.
The government site fueleconomy.gov has a number of fuel-saving, money-saving tips like how keeping your tires properly inflated can save you up to 12 cents a gallon. Interesting to note: off shore drilling and Arctic National Wildlife Refuge drilling combined, 20 years later, would only save you 6 cents a gallon.
If you just got inspired by all this latest news and are looking for the right gauge – then consider the Accutire MS-4350B Programmable Digital Tire Gauge from Amazon.com
It is programmable so you can record your car’s recommended optimal tire pressure settings for front and rear tires. Its large, blue, backlit LCD screen makes for easy viewing. What else can you say – its a tire pressure gauge. A number of people complained about this model having issues with not getting a good seal but that has apparently been resolved.
