HomeTowne Auto Repair & Tire
You have purchased your hybrid knowing that the gas engine and electric motor will help you save at the pump. What you may not know is that the type of tire used on your hybrid car can help to maximize fuel efficiency. Using tires with low rolling resistance can increase fuel economy up to 2.5 mpg.
Low rolling resistance means that the tire minimizes wasted energy. These tires are made using a harder rubber compound making them roll more easily and in turn your hybrid's engine or electric motor does not have to work as hard to keep the car moving.
At HomeTowne Auto Repair and Tire we can help you choose the right low rolling resistance tire for your hybrid's make and model.
