Why Keep Trying?

“The best managers, the best leaders are…not the people who never fall. They’ll fall but they’ll jump immediately after. They’ll try to get the lessons from what happened to them. They’ll go further and they’ll continue to stretch.” – Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Nissan

Fuel Economy Series Part 3 1/2

by Tim Joseph

Last night after I posted my Part 3 article I got to thinking… How did they calculate my savings? I did some research and came up with a set of equations that yield the same results. I’m pretty excited.

To calculate your tire savings:
Cost of a set of tires / 4 = tire savings

To calculate you fuel savings:
((miles per year / mpg) x average cost per gallon of gas) x 0.07111 = fuel savings

Total savings:
tire savings + fuel savings = total

This is very quick and simple but could save you hundreds of dollars per year.

My example is: 15,000 miles per year, 32 mpg, $4/gallon average, 300 for a set of tires.
My tire savings is $75
My gas savings is $133.33
My total savings is $208.33 per year

I think $3.75 per tire is more than worth that kind of savings.

Also, remember, if you’re in need of an oil change soon (and who isn’t), we’re offering the following special:
The Fuel Saver Special – 27 point safety inspection, oil change, nitrogen inflation in all four tires for $29.95.

Since most oil changes will cost you about $30, its like getting your nitrogen free!
