My 2 Cents

August 11, 2008

'Tests have shown the pencil gauge

to be one of the most reliable and consistent of all gauges. They have shown to be consistently 1 to 2 psi off from very fragile laboratory- grade gauges. The 1-2 psi variation

is perfectly acceptable; some are right on.'

-- George E. Turski,

Venice,

on Friday's Rumble Seat column about maintaining proper tire pressure. It stated that pencil gauges offer only a "rough guess" of pressure.
