TPMS isn't compulsory in my state why should I invest in a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System?
There are many variables to be considered running a transport operation. One factor which is often forgotten about is tyres. Tyres have an incredible influence upon the running and maximising the efficiency of a fleet. A tyre that is unmaintained and underinflated increases fuel consumption, wears out faster and is likely to fail before it reaches the end of its life.
Running a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System can:
- Save money on your fuel bill by correctly inflating and monitoring your tyres. A 9% drop in tyre pressure increases fuel consumption by around 5%.
- Save money on tyres, increase your tyre life significantly by running correct tyre pressures
- Reduce Downtime. If your wheels aren't rolling they aren't generating you income.
- Improved safety: Under-inflated tyres lead to tread separation and tyre failure
- Ensure your passengers are safe, a tyre blowout at speed can cause complete loss of vehicle control
