How to get free beer with compass
I put this in a different thread, but I think it didn't really match the title, so here it is:
I increased the tire pressure in my 19 Compass TH to 42.5 PSI and have some measurable data that may be of interest.
First, with this tire pressure, I did the "highly technical" test where you wet the tires and drive on the driveway to make sure they are not overly inflated/ tire surface contact. It is good to go. The tires are rated to 45 PSI max.
Second, When the tires heat up, meaning after multiple 60+ mile trips, the max they have expanded to is 44 PSI, within the tolerances.
Numbers: I have increased an average of .4 MPG over the measured 3 tanks of fuel. Being as the TH has a 13.5 gallon tank, that adds up to 5.4 gallons. At $2.25 dollars a gallon, 5.4 gallons of fuel EVERY TANK adds up to $12.15.
Impact: An 18 Pack of Coors Light at Walmart is $14.49. The difference in the price per tank and an 18 pack of the worlds finest beer is $2.34. That means every time you fill up you get a 18 rack for $2.34.
This is science people. SCIENCE!
