Dunlop Claims U.S. Drivers may be Wasting More than $10Billion at Gas Pumps

AKRON, Ohio �' U.S. motorists may be wasting more than $10.3 billion at the gas pump annually, because they spend too little time at the air pump, according to Dunlop tire officials. According to statistics from Dunlop engineering, tires under-inflated by only 4 to 5 pounds per square inch cause a vehicle to gulp �' and waste �' an extra 10 percent of fuel. And because studies show that about 28 percent of tires are under-inflated, that’s $10,344,111,911 in wasted fuel.

In addition, due to this waste, motorists must visit gas pumps an additional 328 million times. Dunlop data is based on cars that travel 20,000 miles per year, require 15 gallons per fill-up, average 20 miles per gallon for the U.S. fleet of vehicles and pay record $2.10-per-gallon gas prices.

Since tires account for 4 to 7 percent of a car’s fuel consumption, keeping tires properly inflated has a huge effect on America’s pocketbooks, according to Bill Egan, chief engineer of advanced product design for The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company. Ten years ago, the U.S. Energy Department said under-inflated tires wasted 4 million gallons of gasoline daily �' or nearly 1.5 billion gallons annually �' in America. Egan calls the country’s rising gasoline bills “tire-fuelish,” a money-wasting malady that could be cured by spending five minutes a month with vehicle tires at the air pump.

Motorists must check tire inflation monthly or before a long trip. Tires should be inflated to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommendation printed on the vehicle’s door placard or in the owner’s manual.

“An under-inflated tire consumes more energy and increases rolling resistance, which robs the vehicle of fuel efficiency,” Egan said. “Tire-fuelishness is a double-edged sw...

Dunlop Tires 'Tune Into' Supercharged 'Tuner' European Cars

By the Staff   

AKRON, Ohio -- Luxury vehicle builders are increasingly specifying Dunlop to outfit supercharged versions of Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz sports cars. Dunlop today said it's making gains on high- profile "tuner" vehicles.

Take Carlsson Autotechnik GmbH, a Mercedes-Benz premium-class tuner in Germany. Carlsson calls Dunlop its "technology consultant" for its race and sports cars; Dunlop ultra-performance and race tires are selected on a broad range of models.

Andy Traicoff, director of Dunlop in North America, said the brand's presence on European performance cars is legendary, but its "focus on the tuner segment establishes the brand as a trendsetter. It takes the Dunlop brand to a new level of awareness.

"Tuners and the people who own these specialized vehicles are passionate about tires. They know that the correct tires can enhance the look and performance of their vehicles," Traicoff said.

Dunlop's fitments on Audis, BMWs, Mercedes and Porsches are renown, but the venerable tire brand's selection on supercharged versions "often flies under the radar. We've often been there, but now our tires are more prevalent on vehicles modified by Volkswagen/Audi tuner ABT, BMW tuner Hamann Motorsport and Porsche tuner Cargraphic," Traicoff said.

In North America, Dunlop SP Sport Maxx 275/35R20 tires are standard equipment on the 4.6-liter, 325-horsepower Saleen Mustang S281 coupe, convertible and speedster models.

To cater to the sport compact-car tuner segment, Saleen's nitrous- compatible Focus N2O features European rally car styling and agile, nimble performance. The sport compact rides on Dunlop SP Sport FM901 tires, 215/40R17 on the front and 215/45R17 on the rear.

For 20 years, Steve Saleen has transformed the southern California tradition of car performance building into a science. His manufacturing business has developed a system of mass customization. And many of his cars find their way into the movies, such as his Saleen Mustangs in 2 Fast 2 Furious and Hollywood Homicide.

Then there's HPA Motorsports Inc., of Surrey, British Columbia, which specifies Dunlop tires on its high-powered Volkswagens and Audis. Founder Marcel Horn featured 18-inch SP Sport Maxx ultra-performance tires on his 550- horsepower Volkswagen R32.

While Horn, Saleen, Carlsson and Cargraphic turn to Dunlop for broad performance reasons, Germany's Eibach vehicle suspension company recently included 21-inch Dunlop SP Sport 9000 ultra-performance tires on its unique Eibach Porsche Cayenne 3.2 Biturbo project car. "The massive tires help deliver 470 horsepower to the pavement," Traicoff said.

On another front, TC Kline Racing, of Columbus, Ohio, selected 19-inch Dunlop Direzza DZ101 ultra-performance tires for its TC Kline BMW 530i. The project car has no engine modifications, but TC Kline focused on chassis dynamics. New shocks, springs and tires ensure ideal balance and direct feel, Traicoff added.

"In each case," Traicoff sai...
