I cancelled on 8/19. It is now 11/1. They have had my money for 73 days now. If I don't get outside help like the BBC, I know I will NEVER get my money back. Please address this issue and get back to me.

PSI and Meritor: Keeping tire pressure up

Besides brewing a recipe for road gators, he pointed out that under inflation eventually review leads to irregular tire wear and that to premature removal of tires. Tire punctures also increase with under-inflated tires and a longer footprint results as the rubber becomes hotter and softer. According to Sonzala, under inflation leads to more than flat tires and road calls. But automatic tire inflation, he stressed, can increase tire life; maximize casing life; reduce on-road expenses and downtime; cut overall fuel expense; and help increase safety. Al Cohn, PSIs director of new market development & engineering support, spoke to fuel economy, explaining that theres a 5:1 ratio for tire pounds per square inch to miles per gallon. The lengthening of the tires footprint due to under inflation, he stated, has a substantial impact on fuel economy. He related that a study conducted by PSI revealed these fuel-economy factors to consider: The specific tire make and model can have a significant impact on rolling resistance and thus how greatly the tire may contribute to fuel efficiency There is a direct correlation between the size of a tires footprint and rolling resistance Under-inflation has a significant negative effect on fuel economy for both new and retreaded tires. Cohn also pointed out that tire inflation plays a role in securing good CSA scores and with that in mind, fleets should be aware that some tire gauges can be off by 15 PSI +/- and therefore certified dial gauges, which typically vary +/- 1 PSI, are preferred.
