    d ryt air pressure is specified n d car's door edge or door posts or neath d hood or in d glove cmprtment or fuel door, & also in your manual. dont rely on wuts engraved on ur tire rim, tire pressure is proportional 2 ur car's weight. for sedans they usually range from 28-30psi depending on inch size. on a 14inch 28 in front &30 in rear wud b fine.

    about D-idling, it might seem 2 b a choice btween poor fuel economy or overheating - unless you have a good engine & an excellent cooling system, problms iv encountrd so far bout it (w/c i dont even think itz conncted) are worn out belts & dt myt b accounted 2 d fact dt d belts i used wer locally made, that ws 1 intance wer i overheated wen my power steering belt gave in & itz easy 2 remedy dt coz u can still drive ur car 2 d nearest servitk (heck u can even drive it home if u want) & itll only cost u 400bucks even less -dt includes a new belt & labor

    u put ur car on N if ur engine cant take it & if u have a poor cooling system, as far as i know d N on automatic cars are designed for emergency reasons lyk moving d problematic car by pushing to isle side

    note: peepz may find my techniques a bit radical but.. thats how their designing cars nowadays... deviant from the norm

    i think u should sign a waiver when u read my posts.. hehe

    wow! im suddenly d car expert im an overnyt sensation.. hehe.. thanx guys im rili enjoyin ds hehe

    no i still dont consider dt ovrinflating, unless ur car tire pressure specifies 28 & u pumped ur tire cold, when you reach d hiway dt 32 will ballon up to 35.. ewan ko ah.. dont quote me on ds

    hirap den kc pagoverinflated ka & u live lyk..somewhere in sunvalley ville paranacue lyk my frend do, where every street ridiculously got humps.. man! sira suspension mo agad. sometymes we need a bit of softness in our tires to breeze through d lubaks & humps, ive noticed dt while driving.

    overinflating 4 me is abt 5-7psi excess at coldstart

    *kadaj,

    Last time I checked, there are still 26 letters in the alphabet, so it wouldn't really kill you to use each one properly. Using SMS-style shortcuts is frowned upon here. ;)

    I usually feed 30 and 36psi to the front and rear tires, respectively. One time, malapit nang mag-1/4 yung tank ko, tapos wala pa akong pera pang-gas, so nag-try ako mag-32 front and 38 rear as a last-ditch effort to reduce my consumption. Sobrang tagtag.

    'N' is not an emergency gear. It is a gear setting designed to be used just as you would use the neutral setting on a manual transmission.

    Btw, why it's between R and D is because the law requires it to be there (for safety reasons).

    sa lancer MX, assuming you are still running on the stock 195/45/R15, 30 psi na ang max. you can see it sa pinto sa driver side. nakadikit sa ilalim.

    Yup. The pressure on the door jamb is the recommended pressure for that vehicle.

    The one on the tire sidewall is just the maximum pressure the tire can take.

    E.g. Recommended TP for a Vitara is 23psi. Yet the max pressure on the sidewall is indicated at 44psi.

    Over inflated tires really helps increase the mileage:fuel ratio

    but your suspensions will definitely suffer the beatings.

    I felt that I was able to stretch it somewhat, but I wasn't able to get an actual figure. Besides, around that time, my wife had bouts of stiff neck for a week. As a result, I had to run slower than usual to prevent sudden acceleration/stops, so the improvements in my fuel consumption from overinflating the tires were subsequently negated.
