What makes a tire fuel-efficient?
Simply put, fuel-efficient tires require less energy to roll. This ultimately translates into less fuel used.
How is fuel efficiency rated?
Fuel efficiency is rated from A to G on a colour-coded scale.
- A (green) = highest fuel efficiency rating
- G (red) = lowest fuel efficiency rating
- Rating D is not used for passenger cars.
What the tire fuel ratings mean
The difference between an A rating and a G rating could mean a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 7.5%. To put this in real terms, choosing A-rated tires instead of G-rated tires could save you more than 6 litres of fuel every 1,000 kilometres.*
At an average petrol price of £1.10 per litre, that adds up to cost savings of more than £220 over the life of the tires.*
Don’t forget, you’ll also be reducing your environmental impact!
*Based on an average consumption of 8 litres/100km, a fuel price of £1.10/litre, and an average tire mileage of 35,000 km. Actual fuel and cost savings may vary depending, among other things, on tire pressure, vehicle weight and driving style.
