TYRE PRESSURE MONITOR
Okay, at R1 500 this may seem pricey but one slightly deflated tyre can quickly have an effect on your fuel costs. And that’s not to mention the safety issues that come with a tyre that is slowly deflating.
An external sensor attaches to each of the tyre valves, providing you with real-time data on the pressure and temperature of your tyres while you’re on the go. The system is easy to install and operate, with the miniature LCD display plugging into your car’s cigarette lighter port.
The system ensures you’ll be able to detect problems such as a leaking tyre before a potential accident. Audio and visual alarms send out warnings whenever pressure or temperature reaches uncommon levels.
This one comes with a 12-month warranty.
We reckon one of these gizmos makes a lot of sense.

WE LIKE: Anything that makes our petrol last longer
WE DISLIKE: On their website, they spell tyre ‘tire’. Well come on, what did you expect asking a sub editor to write this piece?
