Pumped Up

Pump up your tyres and save fuel

+3 Goals
30 m
Once per season

A football must have an air pressure of between 8.5 and 15.6 PSI. Footballs are pumped up to make them travel efficiently. It's the same for cars, so drive to your nearest garage and check to see if your tyres need air.

What difference does it make?

Properly pumped up tyres can save you between 5% and 10% in fuel spend and help lower your carbon footprint. Win!

This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:

What if we don't have a car?

That's great! If you're cycling check your tyres for fun and send us a photo of that instead.

How do I know if the tyres need pumping up?

Unless the pressure is very low, it's hard to determine it visually. You'll need to check using the air pressure gauge at the petrol station and looking in your car manual for the correct pressure.
