UNM ratchets up the pressure

Posted on September 15, 2008

Last week, the University of New Mexico’s Parking and Transportation Services (PATS) introduced a cost-free tire pressure checking station, which will move to different venues around the Albuquerque campus daily.

The station will provide tire pressure measurement and adjustment service to student, staff and faculty vehicles.

“Checking tire pressure is one of the easiest ways to improve fuel efficiency, be safe on the road and protect your tires,” said PATS director Clovis Acosta. “Being aware of ways to maximize your vehicle’s efficiency not only has economic benefits, but contributes to our community’s quality of air by reducing waste emissions.”

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), properly inflated tires can improve gas mileage by up to 3 percent, providing a fuel economy benefit of up to 12 cents per gallon.
