I had difficulty finding research about the effect of tyre pressure on fuel efficiency, and what I did find showed that it has only a small effect. But it's still worth keeping your tyres pressurised for your own safety, and to extend the life of your tyres.
This month's challenge is to turn down your home thermostat and save money and energy heating your home. In the UK it's still unseasonably warm, and quite possible to be comfortable with only a low level of heating in the home.
