Got a questions for you guys out there...
I own a Year08 Prius. I do try to make sure the tires are inflated according to the values recommended by Toyota. This means that I'm going by the values indicated on the sticker found on the door (is it the driver side or front passenger side? I can't remember which).
Having read other posts earlier, it seems to me that many are claiming 42front/40back would boost MPG even more! So questions are:
1) Is it save to inflate higher than the manufacturer's recommended values? I'm also worried the tire would burst on me all of a sudden...
2) Why 42/40? Did somebody out there do some kind of comprehensive tire pressure test and conclude that 42/40 is the sweet spot?
Thanks all for your help! Look forward to hear from you guys!
