Fuel prices on the rise

With fuel prices reaching record levels in Shrewsbury, Hometyre is reminding motorists that correctly inflated tyres have the extra benefit of increasing a car’s fuel efficiency as well as providing maximum safety and prolonging tyre life. With UK motorists are now paying on average a staggering 144.67p per litre for diesel, higher than the previous record during last year’s ‘Arab Spring’, and according to industry analysts a new high of 137.44p per litre for unleaded petrol, it needn’t be all doom and gloom. TyreSafe, the UK’s leading tyre safety organisation, pointed out that apart from improved safety and the reduced risk of experiencing a dangerous blowout, correctly inflated tyres provide lower running costs. This is because the rolling resistance of an under-inflated tyre increases meaning that a bigger force or more energy is needed to make it turn. Indeed, calculations suggest that when tyres are under-inflated by just 20 per cent (around 6psi), 3 per cent more fuel is used. That, it is estimated in the UK could be as much as £337 million of fuel in wasted each year as a result of driving on under-inflated tyres

Were Tyron Bands fitted?

I saw a horse box and Landrover turned over on the side of the motorway yesterday... Question... did it have tyron bands fitted? Probably not, because if it did then the driver would of had some control over the vehicle when the tyre failure occurred.
