Is your fleet’s tyre pressure deflating profits?

SHARE

Research recently released by tyre manufacturer Michelin estimates that 60 percent of motorists are driving on under-inflated tyres, half of which are at dangerously low levels.

Michelin’s testing also revealed that tyres which are 20 percent under-inflated will need to be replaced more frequently than those running at optimum levels. They estimate that the average tyre can safely cover 25,000 miles, while an under-inflated one needs replacing after 20,000 – a difference of 20 percent. 

Tyre pressure also impacts the vehicle’s fuel efficiency and the safety performance of the vehicle. Multiplied across the fleet, this is a massive potential loss and will give fleet and operations managers plenty of fuel for thought.

Mobile resource management can help solve the problem however – especially when combined with a vehicle manufacturer partnership, such as Ford Telematics powered by Telogis. These services give managers real-time visibility of how their vehicles are performing, tracking details such as oil change warnings, water contamination in diesel fuel, tyre pressure, safety belt usage and airbag status.
