Save Gas with Custom Branded Tire Gauges

Here in California, our culture has been highly influenced by automobiles for a long time. While we're seeing a lot more hybrids on the road these days, most adults continue to drive an average of at least 11,500 miles a year.

The recent rise in gas prices has caused many to rethink their dependency on vehicles. Shifting to a more fuel efficient lifestyle is not only good for your pocket book, it's also good for your planet. Among other things, it saves energy, slows climate change, protects water and wildlife, prevents heart disease, strengthens national security, and allows us all to, well... breathe easier.

When you must use a car, one very simple but often overlooked way to enhance your fuel efficiency (and thus reduce your carbon footprint) is to keep your tires at proper pressure. By doing so, you'll improve gas mileage by around 3.3 percent.

Custom tire gauges with your branding or message can be a useful, practical and eco-friendly promotional item — especially in this time of high gas prices and climate change. From heavy duty pen styles to high tech digital versions, you can find a wide assortment of customizable tire gauges by searching products here.
