TireView™ by P.S.I. ROI Calculator
Quantifiable Savings Study Results
Rolling resistance charts have been acquired and resistance rates have been tabulated on the basis of tire manufacturer data. The lower the tire PSI, the greater the inherent drag, and the greater energy generation is required to move the tire, resulting in greater fuel consumption. Based on our study, we have determined that 70% of commercial vehicles are operating at or beyond 10% below the tire manufacturers recommended cold PSI for their respective gross vehicle weights. One major tire manufacturer defines a tire as being "under-inflated" at these levels and equates premature tire wear and increased fuel costs to under-inflated tires.
One truck with ten tractor tires operating below the proper inflation could increase fuel consumption by 3 gallons per week (based upon 90,000 miles per year in transit).
One truck with proper PSI could save $10.50 per week or $42.00 per month.*
Over the course of a 12-month operating period you could save $504.00.*
Over the five-year battery life of the TireView™ system you could save $2,520.00 in fuel costs.*
* These savings are based upon fuel costs of $3.50 per gallon for diesel fuel.
ROI EXAMPLE FOR ONE UNIT (10 Tires)
As you can see, the system could pay for itself within the first 14 months of service, and likely sooner as fuel prices rise. This system will also eliminate many roadside service calls and provide continual data streaming to driver and maintenance personnel.
