Tire Pressure Monitor Benefits
Tires low on pressure require more fuel to maintain constant speed. Over 2 billion gallons of fiuel are wasted per year.
Extended Tire Life
For transportation companies, the cost for tires is second only to fuel costs. Running low on pressure causes tires to break down prematurely. The DOT estimates that 37% of all tires on American roadways are under-inflated by 20 PSI or more.
Decreased Down Time
If a truck is down because of tire problems, it costs money. Most transportation companies estimate truck downtime at $250/hr or $4,000 for each day.
Each year, each vehicle with under-inflated tires emits 250 pounds of greenhouse gases.
Two Levels of Low Pressure Alerts
Pressure alerts drivers at two (2) low pressure levels, offering greater safety and savings for drivers. The first alert sounds at a 12.5% drop in pressure with the second alert alarming at a 25% drop in pressure.
