Chevrolet is an international automotive brand which operates in above 120 countries and provides 4.25 million vehicles annually; it is renowned in providing fuel-efficient, safest and steadfast vehicles. Good news for the people who are interested to buy the 2011 Chevrolet Cruze and also those who are going to buy.

If you are willing to enhance the fuel efficiency of 2011 Chevrolet Cruze, you should avail its offer i.e. on-board tire inflator kit which plays its part to get better fuel efficiency by flaking 26 pounds of standby tire and jacking hardware.

How Pressure Monitoring System works with Inflator Kit?

Tire Pressure Monitoring System offers a caution on the instrument cluster, which allows the driver to take action earlier than tire smash up. One can also plug the trunk-mounted inflator into the 12-volt accessory socket within the car that can be used to re-pressurize the tire with no added apparatus. If the tire has been perforated by a screw, nail or any other thing the inflator can insert a sealant competent of plugging gaps of up one-quarter-inch in diameter in the tramp region. The whole process is risk free as compare to the risk of tire change on a highway.

How they Enhance Fuel-Economy?

The blend of the pressure monitor and inflator helps to attain better actual world fuel economy for the reason that working a vehicle with under-pressurized tires boosts the rolling resistance. The inflator kit will help to attain EPA value of 42mpg on the highway; 42 mpg is the best mileage for a non-hybrid vehicle on the highway.

Perspective of Terry Connolly

GM director of Tire and Wheel System Terry Connolly said, “Getting rid of something as important as the spare tire wasn’t a decision we made lightly, the universal implementation of tire pressure monitoring systems over the past five years has significantly reduced the likelihood that a flat tire will leave you stranded by the side of the road. The Cruze engineering team equipped the Eco with industry-leading low rolling-resistance tires. Ensuring that they stay properly inflated will help drivers get the full benefit of this lower fuel consumption. Tire pressure actually changes about one pound per square inch for every 10 degrees of ambient temperature change. Keeping your tires at the recommended pressure year round means drivers won’t have to fill the fuel tank quite as often.”
