Matt has been driving his 2010 Toyota Corolla for a few years now. He’s fresh out of college and excited to start at his first real job. As a budget-conscious new graduate, Matt keeps a strict budget: he rarely eats out, makes sure to slim down on subscription services and learns about the different ways that he can save.
The Department of Energy estimates that 3.56 million gallons of gas are wasted each day because of incorrectly inflated tires. This holds true for Matt since one of the big surprises for him is how much he spends on gas for the 30 mile round trip drive he makes everyday for work. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, under inflated tires can lower gas mileage by 0.3% for every 1 PSI drop in all four tires.
"I am always looking to reduce costs and save money anywhere that I can. It was a complete surprise that my tire pressure and maintenance can play such a big role in fuel efficiency. I just read the other day that I’m able to save up to 11 cents per gallon by just keeping my tires properly inflated. With the ZUS Smart Tire Safety Monitor, I would be able to see my individual tire pressure and therefore keep my tires properly inflated for maximum savings." - Matt H., 22
