Several approaches have been identified which have the potential to significantly reduce annual fuel consumption. The approaches are an information program to allow consumer selection of fuel-efficient tires and incorporation of tire inflation pressure maintenance in existing or planned inspection programs. A tire information program has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by 3 billion gallons annually. An annual inflation inspection and maintenance program could be expected to save approximately 300 million gallons. A consumer information program on the fuel economy aspects of tire inflation pressures could also be cost effective. The report discusses these several approaches to save several billion gallons of gasoline annually.
