It can be as simple as checking your tire pressure monthly and filling tires to manufacturer's specifications.
As a result, you reduce carbon emissions, increase gas mileage, have less wear on your tires, and have less
of a chance that your tires may fail. Properly inflated tires increase gas mileage by 0.6%

When temperatures drop, so does tire pressure and your low-pressure warning doesn't come on until the pressure
is 25% below the manufacturer's guidelines. Measure the pressure with a gauge when the tire is cold and use
the suggested pressure that can be found on the driver's side jamb or in the owner's manual.
