Some fleet managers still underestimate the importance of the correct tyre pressure. If the tyre pressure is too low, the tyre’s rolling resistance is increased. This in turn causes more wear and tear and, above all, higher fuel consumption.
Continental “Smart Tyres” white paper
A tyre pressure that is just 0.5 bar below the correct level can increase fuel consumption by approximately 5 percent and decrease service life by almost a quarter. In other words: fuel consumption can be reduced by 0.5 litres per 100 kilometres on average with the correct tyre pressure, extending the service life by 20%. The Continental “Smart Tyres” white paper contains everything you need to know about the significance of precise tyre management using state-of-the-art technology such as ContiConnect™.
