Fuel Saving Tip: Tire Pressure Saves Fuel in Saint John
Posted September 27, 2016 4:29 AM
Underinflated tires waste gas for lots of folks in the Saint John area. Think how hard it is to walk in sand – you just have to work harder because of the resistance. When your tires don't have enough air in them, their rolling resistance is dramatically increased and it simply takes more gas to get from here to there.
Always check your tire pressure when you gas up at one of our local Saint John service stations. If they're low – even just a little bit – bring them up to proper pressure. There's a sticker on the inside of your driver's door that gives the manufacturer's recommended tire pressure.
And don't rely on your tire pressure monitoring system to alert you to when you need more air. The TPMS system is set to warn you when pressure drops 20 percent below recommendations. That's severely underinflated and you needed more air a long time ago. And if you have a slow leak – get it fixed right away at Chimo's Auto Repair.
Great place please go here, amazing service and people. Had my car done in a matter of 3 hours, they are amazing. Please don't be fooled by the building, they actually fix cars unlike the dealerships, would put 10 stars if I could.

Great work. Fast service and fair pricing. Always let's you know what issues have been found and provides an estimate so you can decide if you want to have your vehicle repairs or pursue other estimates.
If you are looking fair and honest mechanic , Dave and his crew are it. I've been taken my vehicles to him for years.. If you are about supporting local businesses Chimo's is the place!
